Across my balcony often

Across my balcony often ,I see her standingBy the early morning sunshineWorking quietly by herselfIn movements tenderAmidst the soft greensOf her potted plantsspread all around herIn an unseen embraceand in pure graceAs in a pure light of brotherly love …I seethe faint outline of herbeautiful straight white hairwaving in slow motionMerrily,In the stillness of theearly

Mother of mine

We saw her watching quietlybeside our cradle blue,comforting my twin and iAmidst our daily harmonic wailsseeking nothing beyondfew precious secondsof undivided playful attentionBut then without a wordthe glean of her soft black eyessmiled,at her little Red Devils equally,amidst their languid lyrical squealsof playful delightWhen suddenly,in a flashIt seemed as if ,A million rays of sparkling

Manchester by the Sea

The sea is calm tonight The tide is full , the moon lies fair Its the night of my dreams …. As I lose myself to a calling within I hear a celestial voice so pure far from the shifting dunes of our daily lives…. Singing perhaps, a soft lilting lullaby whispering by the shore,

The magic of the blue

A Golden Harvest !

Oh yes,It seems so many glorious seasons agoMeandering through life’s spirited decadesIn one slow motion of eternal joyWhen every momentseemed as preciousas its previous,When it seemed as ifYoung ‘Uttam’ met ‘Suchitra’,and some sultry spurious secondsWere wrapped in gilt edged memoriesand bound togetherin one sublime gold etched framesuspended in time,( And then perhaps lost in timelessness…)When
