It's the early morning view, shiny
little dew,... for me it waits till
the sun shines and slowly it
melts away welcoming
the beautiful day.
You manifest
In different
Ways oh
God
Aroma of freshly cooked dishes
engulf the whole area when
I come tired after work.
Inviting with a hug
Wife says today is
Your special day.
I asked why!?
She said
It's

Men's Day

What's on your mind?
Each
Time
I open
The facebook
It keeps asking me
What's on your mind.. I can't resist
Your 'Likes' they decorate the mind
My pen starts to find
A new muse
To pen
With
Ease

Beautiful feelings
You
Didn't
Forget
To wish me
You remember me
What else a ♥ needs more than this
Beautiful feelings
They trespass
The way
You
Do

After many a year
Meeting them after many a year
To the heart they are so Dear
Flash back circled in a gush
Old faces with new blush
Gathered together
For a big bash
Big bang fun
With class
Mates
Your good morning wish comes with a rose
Pinkish hue, your nature it shows
Some colours like this can heal
So complacent I feel.

All that I send back
is thank you and
an affable
tingling
muse

It's me, call me
How are you this morn

It's

been ages since you are gone

Me

Like rudder less boat
Lost in this vast sea
I've no signal, how will you

Call me

Ego the Master
Mind goes circling
Egos are Mind-boggling
Easily get hurt
When pain becomes a teacher
Mind becomes a preacher
Morning saw them greeting each other
moving with great speed and rhythm
Next day morn saw a castle,
leader less soldiers built
in the yonder yard.
Amazing are
disciplined
creatures.
Ants
Little kid in creche
In Papa's or Nana's place,
gate sound still alerts.
Certain frequencies remain
alluring though they grow old
Rain behaves folly
to make the spell look haily
Pitter-patter sounds
You whisperd those three words but
sweet nothings gone unheard
It's so cosy I lie on the bed
anticipating a good sleep.
Feeble resonating sound
starts to intensify
Hovering it goes.
So scary is
this little
dengue

Dark clouds (Tanka)
Cumulonimbus
clouds midst of normal clouds mix
and emerge cooly
The way they confuse pilots
Evil thoughts do play havoc

Dark snow (Tanka)
Hibernating bear
yawning it looks around  to
see if the snow melts
Laziness creeps in when I
don't melt the dark snow in me

You Accepted
You accepted me precious Lord
Fine tuned my life with a right chord
In cleansing you are never slow
Your forgiveness is white as snow
Mercy that you greatly accord

When entangled in devils cord
You delivered me with your sword
Showed me the path with lighting glow
You accepted

You erased my sins from your record
And armoured me with your word
Your caring comes when I am low
You enable me, I'm in flow
With bated breath I thank you God
You accepted

Eagles explore (Tanka)
Eagles fly so high
Prey they dont get in the sky
They dart down to catch
Opportunities are so
Doesn't come in one go
Shining in the aisle
Sun approaches with a smile
Knocks on the main door
I rise early not to miss
But some days remain cloudy
The Japanese tanka is a thirty-one-syllable poem, traditionally written in a single unbroken line. A form of waka, Japanese song or verse, tanka translates as "short song," and is better known in its five-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form
Birds
when
they fly
decorate
the beautiful sky
Migrating ones in formations
as they juxtapose
beautiful
they look.

Wondering what to pen this morning
I opened the doors of my mind.
It says, you'll remain glowing
Because it's not for the
sufferings you prayed
but for thanking
God for what
He had
Done

Sharing love and care
Heart goes searching for music in mind.
Stays futile since it couldn't find.
Mind says don't you worry I'm
Penning muse snow flurry
Which has love and care
That we can share
With others
And sing
With
Joy

Disheartening when I don’t get likes
Poetry for them looks like Yikes
I sat and poured me a drink
Two more I was in sync
Selfie with a glass

From the
Shelf it fell.
Opened it, found one
Photo negative strip of yours.

Hello Honey
Hello honey.. voice sounds so sweet
With this phrase.. many like to greet
Sweetest thing is honey for sure
In its own form its very pure
Bees prepare and we have a treat.

Pollination spurs 'cause of their fleet
Crops grow, so there is food to eat
Pesticides make them insecure.
Hello honey
Calls you make and the more you tweet
Poor little bees fall on your feet
Mobile towers..make them obscure.
Climate change...they cannot endure
Poor little things how we mistreat

Enjoy Working
Enjoy working with good intent
Focus and grow to great extent
Its your future, you hold the keys
Take one at a time, work in peace
It pays you for the hours spent

Stress can put you on track event
Don’t  ever become discontent
Deliver with your expertise
Enjoy working

Wrong decisions can cause a dent
In haste don’t try to reinvent
Herculean tasks.. for Hercules
Your tasks are simple, deal with ease
It’s a process not an event
Enjoy working

Be Punctual
Be punctual, its good always
Important  role in life it plays
Instead of raising hue and cry
Manage time, doth not let it fly
Once imbibed more longer it stays

Be prepared and avoid delays
Happy you feel give it a try
If time lost…problems amplify
Be Punctual

Punctuality nowadays
Is considered in many ways
Just inculcate till others try
You’ll be looked as an apple pie
That’s the way you should be always
Be Punctual

Respirator (Acrostic)
Rise
Early
Start walking
Please your body
Infuse fitness thoughts
Respirators are for the sick
And we don't need them at all
Take few minutes just keep walking
Oxygen supplements will come for free
Rise early, start walking, please your body

Reconsider (Acrostic)
Rise
Early
Close your eyes
Offer your Prayers
Nice way to kick start
Sing praise to the lord
Invite him in to your heart
Don’t speak about your problems
Early hours are meant for God alone
Rise early, close your eyes, offer your prayers.

They remain with no strings attached

Confusion prevails

Rays required,
Shine is enough.
Each good seed he sows
Rhizome shoots look for light
Young shoots thrill nurseryman

And in inclement times his faith shines
No ultra rays required,……..shine is enough

Coolly in dreams.
Her beauty is such
Profoundly so graceful

Tone-deaf became my minds rhythm
Cosmic things do mesmerise at times
Heap of clouds trespassing coolly in dreams.

Silence the mind
Silence the mind...challenging pun
More I try to stop, more they run.
Freely when ebb tides meander
For the thoughts I don't surrender
Rather with them I'll have some fun

I pen them down to make them one
Then the thoughts become so tender.
Bad thoughts are dormant and slender
Silence the mind

One good deed, and the day is done
Negativity remains non.
Under thoughts possible thunder
Showing duff ear is not blunder
Silence the mind

Friends Encourage
Friends encourage, they make us smile,
With us, they walk an extra mile.
Comforter in times of trouble
Supporters when our tyres wobble
They gel so well in their own style

Though busy they come for a while
Their presence make our minds stable
It's more fun when at the table
Friends encourage

The bonding is never fragile
Remains firm no one can defile
They care without any grumble
Simple hearts, they remain humble
...Sharing from my memory file
Friends encourage

Word has Power
Word has power, changes never
A gift that remains forever
The word of God is well defined
Each page I turn, more peace I find
Free boon that comes from the Grower

Grower asks nothing in favour
A boon for every believer
I encash to get peace of mind
Word has power

For mind and soul it adds flavour
Supports in every endeavour
An eye opener and so kind
Word enlightens every mankind
Thank you Lord you are a giver
Word has Power
