Ada!

As she passed through the streets of the land
Gentle beeeze brought
Sweet aroma of the
Local delicacy called Ada
A popular sweet dish
Of the land of coconuts
Or rather the land of jackfruits
Though may not be a favourite but always popular
Just as the wine tastes better as it ages
One starts to relish the delicacy as you age
But the sweet scent of Ada, the sweetness added
By the cinnamon leaves
By which it is covered
Stirs the corners of your heart
If Kerala ought to be known by a flavour
It could be that of the Ada
With a sweet romantic aroma!

the pain

Each time she stares innocently
At the cupboard of life
The pain pours itself
Into her cup
She pushes it away from her
Reaching out to the joy
To the purpose of life
 But the pain seeps in
Not to make her overjoyed
And break away from life!

Walked on

They hurled stones of words at her
But she remained unhurt
As her body was numb
To the outer world
She had travelled deep into her self
Shedding all her wants and belongings
They accused her of ignoring them
Being rude and selfish
But she moved on
Carrying all the guilt and sin
With her
Into the lap of eternity !

words

Words are many in our minds
Some wanted, some unwanted
We need to pick and use
The right ones at the right time
When the words are uttered
It is heard differently by different ears
Received differently by different minds
They need to be uttered with restraint
With care, with caution
May our words not hurt others
Not hurt the world!

shine

My dear one, know that
The divine lies within you
Close your eyes and look within
Make your mind still
Feel the calm, the peace
Go higher and higher
Shining brighter and brighter
In divine light!

The core

Every new situation
Is a turning point
Where the world changes
With new experiences
With new gifts of life
Life changes
World changes
We keep shedding
Our outer sheaths
Until we reach our core
Where you remain
Un-manifested
Till the end of the cycle
Of life

where you belong

My dear mother
You were a very tall tree
In this world
Giving shade and support
To many
As you leave this world behind
I watch you from here
That you reach the place
Where you belong
To the eternal flame
That shines brightly
Upon the world always
May you reach the destination
You belong!

life story

The life dearly lived
The body dearly possessed
All the struggles
All the victories
The many stories
The many thoughts
All vanish
In a sudden last breath
The body turned to ashes
In no time
The life becoming a memory
But there are more stories written
Finally glowing eternally
In all it’s glory!

Pain

She opened the cupboard
Where the pain was kept
Her heart was empty
Having lost everything
She took the bottle of pain
And devoured it
Filling herself with pain
Feeling the nature of life!

Lap of nature

She waited for him
To lie next to him
To rest her head on his arm
To sleep peacefully
Wrapped in love
Forgetting all the troubles
Of the world
But he had conditions
So, she lay on the lap of nature
Forever covered with love
Un-disturbed by the world!

Ganga Jal

 And she said 
O, the Ganga jal has become impure 
Because you touched
How can that be!
That which purifies everything 
The decayed bodies
The filthy minds
How that be impure
Because I held it
Because my mother died
A perfect death!
O lady of the world
Ganga is divine
It washes away all sins
All the impurities
Without getting impure

Without losing its divinity!

Mother


Mother, sorry I didn’t know you
But I loved
When you fed me with
Your hands
I am sorry I didn’t try
To know you
But I always loved
Sleeping in your arms
Sorry I didn’t try to know
How you feel
But I always liked your silent nods
Sorry I have done things which hurt you
But I always want you in my life

Harmony


Understand the silence
Be part of the stillness
Connect with souls
Listen to the universe
Walk with the world
Covered with bliss
In harmony with life
