A sudden turn

A sudden turn

A sudden turn

We walk in the park
The rose tinged environment
Telling the tales of Indian writers and their muses
Each of us assuming our respective roles
In our warm embrace
It is 12 PM

We are watching a war movie
But my thoughts are fixed on you
The pixels of the screen convert
Into abstract atoms of love
Whose essence carve out
What you mean to me
In your thoughts
It is 9 PM

Let me be free
Let me be the monster that I am
I am the devil of your time
Making you forget who you are
As I make you realize who you are

My celestial dancer
Dance and harmonize
Whatever is offbeat in the world
Put everything now in tune and rhythm
So we now think in musical notations
And not in confessions and confusion

But please do not judge me
Don’t misunderstand me in terms of the lines
And measures of the world
Be a mother to me too
And remember not to abandon your child
Then we will be timeless

Webs and Waves of time

Webs and Waves of time

Webs and waves of time

My past is a sweet glass of wine
Subject of many evenings
Of reminiscence, of musing
And after the first wave
My past is a spider
Entangling me in its web
In its metaphors I see
that I have to clean
The dust off my past
Or its web will not let me move
To see the light of the future
In literary musing I forget
That I am literally caught
In the webs and waves of time
Time in its multiple avenues
Time, the alien I never comprehended

The Title Does Not Belong Here

The Title Does Not Belong Here

The title does not belong here

Shifting between Different Universes
Duly inhibited by each of my personalities
I am taking a quick long plunge in the black tar
to explode into bizarre elements
as a string of absurdity
is about to come out as art from me
duly garlanded by calls for crucifixion
but in some other world
it must be considered the norm.
Let my absurdity be the call sign
to attract those inhabitants
As I do not exist here
I do not exist here

INDIA – THE ANSWER

INDIA – THE ANSWER

India – The answer

Waiting on a foreign shore
I know it’s not foreign to me
Listening to the alien land’s lore
It sounds so familiar to me
The entire world in all its versions
The sky in all its shade
Has learnt its origins from you
You are Mother India
And I have my meaning from you

You are the mother of it all
Your boundary knows no end
Always present where your ideas are
Reminisced by your children
Where you lay your arms open
That place becomes your abode
You are India

The blue serenity that is the soulful Ganga
Runs across your heart
Spreading your stream of liberating thought
Into tributaries of philosophical bliss
From the glaciers of God
That is the Great Himalayas

I wait by your river banks
For your soothing breeze
To embrace me in thoughts
Which liberate me from my falsities
For me to know my meaning and answer
As heavens open up to direct your rain on me
I understand your subtle revelation

The multitude of languages
Each place carrying a culture of its own
And you like a mother singing a lullaby
To put them all in perfect melody
To say your name
India

All faiths converge to form your ideals
Oh Mother of Spirituality!
I am Arjun seeing the Universal form
I am Siddharth, radiating the rays of the Buddha
Listening to the noble deeds of Sikh Gurus
The empathizing rituals of Jain monks
The auspicious air of a Sufi dargah
Fills my heart with poetry
As the church bells ring in your advent
You are the harbor of human conscience
And in you I grow

I have roamed far off corners of earth
I have belonged to many nationalities
My skin has been coloured in different shades
But only when I find you
Do I feel that my inner constitution
Has rung the vibration of my soul
Into one mellifluous tune of ?
You are mother to us all

You have many great sons and daughters
Who came with the dawn and dusk of time
Out of all the centuries forming millennia
Accept your Abhik, as he sings and rhymes

My Cosmic Ghost

My Cosmic Ghost

This night, this hour, at this very moment

I evaporate from the above listed concepts

Existing beyond the realms of all dimensions

To become my complete actual self

Which is to be nothing at all

Beyond any manifestations

I finally am receptive to my voice

Making me receive the answer to it all

(The tree swings to the tune of night’s haunting mystery)

 

The universe is a fine tuned machine of elements

The conspiracy of which brought in my advent

Now when I get conscious about my vicinity

I realize I only exist

To validate its existence

I am the feeder to Universe’s vanity

I am the cluttered mathematics giving it a reason

As without my acknowledgment

Who would conceive of its utter point?

Without me, it would cease to exist at all

(Fog overlaying the lifeless dark tree)

 

What if the fine tune is disturbed?

Would there be anarchy in existence?

Maybe it would lead to different concepts altogether

A different universe with different principles and laws

So much so that it challenges

The very meaning of principles and laws

Governance of thought beyond comprehension

Everything existing in abstracts beyond orders

Receptive to my current ideation

(An unknown car drives away into abyss of darkness)

 

What am I, but a forthcoming?

Forthcoming of a primordial soup

Mix of all the right elements at the right time

Result of a celestial coup

Maybe this ‘accident’

Which led to the correct recipe (me)

Is to bring about a being

Who will then play it all back in a loop?

(A far away howl, hinting its absence in the mist)

 

Déjà vu tells me it’s the umpteenth existence of mine

So if I die suddenly, don’t be sad

For what it’s worth, we are together

In another re-run of this

Somewhere, somehow

(A lone figure, his footsteps echoing the silence)

 

All the rhapsody of the unknown

The spine chilling abstract of mystery

I only realize it in a cosmic union

With my soul mate

In this cold January night

Worn out of our banal undertakings

We tap into each others stream of thought

Accompanying each other

In this late night phone call
