Weekend Writing Prompt #63 – Crumble

 

How first rejection

Made me crumbled down

The world has come to an end, I thought

To cry my heart out

Stormed out in the rain

Sure rain will hide my tears, but

The cool shower made mind cool

Tears refuse to come out

My mind said ‘don’t behave like a fool’

There is so much to enjoy, dear

Life doesn’t end with a rejection

Lots of chance will come by

I phoned the one who rejected

Said ‘you…go to hell’

Then I felt well

You held me spellbound

With your beauty every day

With every sunrise

A masterpiece you unfurl

Oh Nature! you win hands down

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 104 – Beauty & Monument

Tajmahal

Monument of love

God knows what secrets it hides

Behind its grandeur

Beauty it reflects outside

Pain perhaps lies in its womb

Sunday Stills: Can You Capture the #Wind?

We can capture the action caused by the wind only and feel the wind.

Wind sings lullaby

But only when it’s gentle

Furious plays havoc

Trees are swaying dangerously in the storm.

clouds floating away with the wind.

Wind pushing the waves to the shore.

Gone are the old days

When I used to dance in rains

Age simmered me down

Everyone hides from the world

Eyes feign innocence

 

Weekend Writing Prompt #62 – Zephyr

Thanks, Sammy for The Weekend Writing Prompt #62 – Zephyr

 

Gentle as Zephyr

Love touches my parched soul

Longed for this moment

 

 Longed for this moment

Forever and forever

Fearing it eludes

 

Fearing it eludes

Me without ever knowing

How you feel when loved

 

How you feel when loved

The way you want to be loved

On the seventh sky 

 

On the seventh sky

Hoping to never come down

To the loveless world

 

To the loveless world

Of the harsh realities

Where no one wants me

 

Where no one wants me

Soul parches and yarns for someone

Gentle as Zephyr

 

Gentle as Zephyr

Where do you reside, in

 Dream or reality

Be straightforward friend
Don’t kill me with your sweetness
Scared of diabetes 
———————————
either you are happy
or sad
show it with full expression
suppression helps you not
only brings depression
you can’t live your life
with ideology alone
enjoy every bit of it
but
in moderation
—————————————-
हवा में सीलापन सा क्यों है कहीं पे कोई रोया है क्या?

महलों में सब सुविधा पाकर कहीं कोई तो   हँस  ना पाए,

जूठन पाकर झोपड़ीवाला  ख़ुशी के मारे  रोया है क्या?

दिन भर खूब मजूरी की पर  शाम को खाना  घर न आया

बिलख बिलख कर रोते कोई  भूख का मारा  सोया है क्या ?

लालच में वृक्ष काट लिए, बीज कभी भी बोये नहीं

 अब मौसम का रुख देखकर कहीं पर कोई रोया है  क्या?

बेटियां कितनी बलि चढ़ा  दी ,एक बेटे  के लालच में ,

आज उसी बेटी की खातिर किसीका का दिल कहीं  रोया है क्या?

सागर से मिलने वाली  नदियों का जल जब  सूख  गया,

आस लगा कर बैठा सागर,बिलख बिलख कर रोया है क्या?

पापों का लेखा जोखा कर कहीं कोई ग़मगीन हुआ क्या

कहीं कोई शैतान ठिठक कर हँसते हँसते रोया है क्या?

यूं तो कारण बहुत मिले , रोज़ रोज़ हँसने  गाने के

बहलाने को चेहरा छिपाकर, बार बार मुंह धोया है क्या

हवा में सीलापन सा क्यों है ?कही पे कोई रोया है क्या?

~इंदिरा

Translation in English

why breeze is so damp, has someone somewhere cried

some never smile even when they get all the comforts of the world

All the comforts at door, can’t make some smile

Has some poor laughed with a little more than expectation

has someone ever cried regretting no seed was ever sown

those who sacrificed girl fetus to get one son

has some mother ever shed tears remembering that girl

has some mother ever shed tears remembering that girl

has sea sometimes cried and longed for them

when the river water could not reach sea ’cause they dried with our negligence

has sea sometimes cried and longed for them
why breeze is so damp, has someone somewhere cried

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 91, “Magic & Green,” #SYNONYMSONLY

The dry spell no more
rain god waves  conjuring wand
sea water turns  grey
the trees become fresh and bathed
making earth lush emerald
—————————-
need incantations 
to put the unripened fruits
back where they belonged
unluckily plucked in haste 
before they were fully ripe

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 103 – Summer & Breeze

girl-3402351_640

Free verse: Summer and Breeze

a long spell of summer
hot and haughty
humid and depressing
glaring Sun
sucking water from your body
leaving you 
dehydrated
water scarcity
hits you hard
perched throats
yearn for 
cold water
and some relief
all seasons
are importance 
but living 
happily
through
ten months summer
is not a breeze
heart yearns for
a cool, comforting, 
and 
pleasant breeze
