Great are the ways of nature
beyond any feature
going through the stature
abounds greatly in structure
high and low in brochure
long and wide in nomenclature
sounding great in culture
showing grand in capture.
The intention to hold
the feverish inclination to cut short
the burning desire to defer
the funds due to the legitimate
finds an entry into courts
where the arguments go on for months
with the lawyers getting paid hefty
while the judge gets into mediating
but the money goes into wrong hands
andthis entity recovers from the claim
by the support of the holders.
The talk of money sends the detainees
far way into the wilderness
while the rightful person
goes about seeking justice
from post to pillar
where justice is being delayed.
They say that the unlawful would be punished
but to my knowledge and experience
though not being vast and in-depth
I see the wrongdoers and their illegal transactions
go unnoticed both by judiciary and whom you call
the great God who penalises the sinners.
Nothing of that kind do happen
as those who trespass make merry
and go joyful in the day-to-day life.
A smile lightens the mind
relieving the worry
dispelling the sadness
kindling the self
rejuvenating the spirit.
It is a smile that brings joy
enticing the people around
specially the smile of a child
enlightens those in the vicinity
be them old or young.
A learned man talks less.
He sees through things more.
He performs the most.
With great dignity and pride
he gets through in life
honoured and adored.
This made through in every event
greeting and soliciting the former
shunning and discarding the latter.
Thus goes the world in gracing
the great mind and the belittled one
upholding the meritorious while disowning the empty heads.
With the love in he eyes
and a kindness in her way
she crossed all the barriers
sometimes with a stumble
other times in a jumble
most times without a fumble.
On reaching her destination
she gently whistled
though being not feminine
she did it with a terrible shine
reflecting one of achievement
refracting one of amendment
restoring one of faith and averment.
While having got over all hurdles
in slow and steady speed
her life by now has come to an end
signifying that she is in the last period
where her ebullience has subsided
and her diligence has succumbed to age
pushing her to retirement and reconsideration.
That is all is found in her life
which is one of battle and restitution
where there had been no sense of enjoyment
but only confrontations and controversies
that have sucked her energy to a level nothing
with that she is looking the shadow of her original
much drawn out and sad having faced all mishaps.
Seeing the rains after a long time
was an experience of thrill and excitement.
The rains usually catch my attention
but today after a spell of dry indictment
their full mandate was an enumeration
of joy and fun all at the same time
with a sense of fulfillment.
The rains came not with a big bang.
They came with a silence and modesty.
appearing to lend little enchantment
But suddenly they picked up force
pouring in full swing drenching all around.
Accompanied by thunder and lightning
they fell down heavily over terraces.
The whole area looked fresh and clean
being washed and flushed off dust
that lay long on the trees and leaves
that stuck to the buildings and houses
Looking anew the green leaves became greener
the trees looked gleaming and lovely
Well, it was great magnificence in rich text.
The day before was hectic
with activities basic
but became very magnified
with huff and puffs
with sighs and cries.
with no’s and dont’s
making the whole thing bizarre.
That which could have done in no time
started looking like a big crime
with anger seething through
with vengeance heading over
with harsh words creeping in
with fury penetrating in
making the whole thing a bug bear.
