Vishal had lost again the race
He could not keep the pace
This time too he lost the case
About winning the silver vase
All this had left him in a daze.
He decided to set out to a place
Seeking a guide, peace and solace
He reached a wooded green space
Where he met a coach named Grace
Who taught him well how to pace…
Accumulate blessings not riches
dear love not desperate hate
sweet knowledge not sour ignorance
know yourself not about others.
Know well your nature to correct it
for we all have grey lines of fault
some seldom may point these out
some biding to take advantage of it.
These very flaws minute as they seem
take away our right to dear places
we could have so well reached
for time is a precious commodity
that can seldom be bartered.
Pure thyself by chanting His name
clothe your selves with His stories
illuminate thy self with his glory
when time is ripe for angels to arrive
be the lamp among the lost crowd.
As they take you undisturbed
to a place of peace you barely knew
with gained blessings on your crown
you chance upon His mighty throne
at His tender feet by His loving side.
Where no sorrows can abound
only carefree birds that chirp
the lovely scrolls of your Life
that got etched as you well lived
in times, good, bad and sad.
For each of us has limited time
so as you run around to make a mark
let the mark of blessing be upon you
leave no stone to accumulate it
for in the end it is all what matters.
To Him who holds store of good things
of blessings distributed to the needy
May you add to His cherished stock
as you reach him safe and sound
the ultimate heights you asked for.
The short Jasmine and the tall Lily
would talk daily as they swayed
the gentle wind who would listen
the bright hovering sun who watched
the merciful rain falling to protect.
The moon shining bright every month
lighting them up as they slept unaware
looking over the ever so gentle beauties
blissfully lighting many a human heart
whose scanning eyes would pick them.
Their life spans so short to us humans
who would enjoy their beauty one day
not even bothering to look over them
bodies of two friends lying withered
their memories fading into quick sand…

I grow straight up as years go by
from where I can see you below
while trying to eke out a living
going nuts with pressures in life.
The bark, the fronds, the husk
the nut flesh, the water and oil
do know I got everything to offer
as food or fuel to run your life.
Taste the milk from the nuts
enjoy the pure coconut water
you can eat the sweet ripe flesh
all you need to help preserve yours.
While stranded on a beach
waiting for help to arrive soon
pray to get an instance of me nearby
have the sense to break open the fruit.
To feed your thoughts and good self
do plant my seedlings and see me grow
you won’t be disappointed ever in life
for the Lord did make our lifespans equal.
The chill with the winter is here,
the holidays are back to rejoice
time to go on a shopping spree?
and what would you dear like
now that Christmas is here again.
Is it easy or difficult to make a choice
would you buy a red robe, a hat
this time as a sweet year ends
indulge in those cute presents
for a poor kid on the street
to whom Santa is a distant dream
that I would like you to fulfill…
Wishing all my dear readers, Happy Holidays, a great Christmas and a Happy New Year ready to unfold into our lives!
God inspired us by his infinite intelligence
and we called it Science with indulgence.
We grew up, fought and prospered with it
secure with the inventions we did benefit.
Alas, we never gave credit nor space
to the Lord as we increased our race…
