A Card Up Destiny's Sleeve..

Written for

Prompt: Lump

A Card Up Destiny's Sleeve..

I looked at the 
tall dark lines of the buldings
through my hopeful eyes
and the straight stretch
of road passing through
with dim lights pouring
out of old lamp posts
I could see millions of
my footprints there
some laughing , some sad
some jumping with joy
some crying hidden
behind their own shadows..
the stretch won't
be able to have any more
of my foot-prints
as the destiny had played
a card up her sleeve
which I always thought
was in my hands
But that's how we, the mortal
humans play at her hands
often wondering...
A lump in my throat
suddenly made my eyes wet
No, there was none to see
and I wondered did
the stones around
had any feelings...
did they too have lumps
in throats whenever
they witnessed dreams 
turned into smoke
going up a chimney
which wasn't coughing
anymore for years now
and a question flashed
in my untiring mind
where thoughts often
danced in different
attires to myriad notes
of soulful music -
did the invisible
smoke of dreams
ever turn into clouds
keen to rain somewhere
making the soil fertile
to grow newer dreams..
I know the answer
Yes, they do...


An attempt in Haiku Format too..

Invisible Footprints..

My happy footprints
are ready to fade away;
None will really know

None will really know,
visible only to me;
a lump in my throat..

I Am With Myself...

Written for Rebbeca's
Haiku My Heart..

I Am With Myself..

I look straight and reach
where magical green meets grey;
Ah, white flowers bloom

Ah, white flowers bloom,
tree holds the bunch pretty tight;
strong winds come laughing

Strong winds come laughing
as I find raindrops wash my face;
Eyes close on their own

Eyes close on their own
as rain gains ferocious speed;
No, I don't see red

No, I don't see red
happy colours shine in black;
world has vanished..

World has vanished;
fully drenched in water
I am with myself..

I am with myself;
oh, please God let me be here
melting with the rain..

Prompts.. Cut, Endanger, Hazard..


Cut throat competition
between my own desires and wishes
each one wants to be
fulfilled first..
pushing and pulling
to stay on top of my list
how hazardous my
thoughts can be for
any of them at any moment...
well I am happy that still
they are not endangered species
and keep arriving in
small bundles everyday
It only shows that
I am fully alive
and life too is beautiful..


In a Haiku fromat...

Deep cut on my heart;
ah, trust can be a hazard,
endangering 'I'..

Written for Rebecca's
Haiku My Heart....

Green Remains Thirsty..

Neither the sun shines
nor are falling any rains;
I go for my walk..

I go for my walk;
some raindrops fall on my face
surprising me, oh..

Surprising me, oh
nothing much happens really;
green remains thirsty..

Green remains thirsty;
I hear the thunder of clouds,
my music of hope..

It Will Rain Somewhere....

Written for One Single Impression

Prompt : Baloon
( Thanks Harshadji for the prompt..)

Red baloon;
blowing air with force
I turn blue..


As a curious child
I would look at Moon
and often think
It was a shining baloon

My eyes would wander
looking for a hanging thread
But then I grew-up
and learnt the truth instead..


I  draw smiles and smiles 
on a baloon and release it;
It will rain somewhere..

Arrogance Melts Too..

Written for Rebecca's
Haiku My Heart..

Arrogance Melts Too
(chained free haiku..)

I look up with hope
at a big black group of clouds;
dark skies laugh at me

Dark skies laugh at me
yet, obligingly give rains;
arrogance melts too

Arrogance melts too
as puddles of water grow;
she floats paper boat

She floats paper boat
carrying forbidden dreams;
ah, smoke without fire

Ah, smoke without fire,
rain too gets a  lot stronger;
I look up with hope..
