What If



What if

the humans faded away

into nightmare-


all flora, fauna

and knowledge vanished

into nothingness-


E would

still be equal to



grand math

would still glitter

in the night sky

National Flag

The Indian Tricolor flying today

Is a snow white dove

It’s peace and all love-

But when it drapes the still warrior

And brings him home

It’s tears and all b

Of Poems


I stitch my sighs with the dewy bloom

to do away with soggy gloom-

I thread through the rivers, hills and seas

as if they were tiny beads-

I let slip stars through buttonholes at times

only for the sake of a dark rhyme-

while at work something throbs in the vein

what is it, a wreath, a bouquet or a poem?

Rock Balance


I am amazed at poets

Rock balancing their mind

In free style, that is

Measuring each thought well

And putting them perfectly

In classic* and counter balance**-

But look at my disobedient words-

How they frolic, wink

And go topsy-turvy

Leaving me grieving

In the space between

Sunrise and sunset

till my mind droops

and fingers pant-

till I’m all over colored

with sleep


*Classic balance is when each rock is balanced inline

**Counterbalance is when lower rocks depend on the weight of the upper rock to maintain balance
