as early in the morning
eat until last.
Like a king
eat as much in the morning
all with a sing.
Never mince food
eat as much as you could
be it in the morning
A day or two ago
met my friend of long ago
old she has turned
most of the calories burnt
by age and illness in one show
found her out of flow
staggers a lot in her walk
precise is she in her talk
physically she has lost
mentally she is still fast
hailed me by name all aloud
brought back the events from cloud
speaks out in a voice so clear
tells me I look like an old hag with cheer
Knew not where to keep my face
I pulled myself away with a long face
not able to accept that I am also old
she and I being the same age in fold
yet thought I am young not gone grey
as my black hair shines in the fray
with coloured dye minimal and slight
teeth all original and white
no make up whatsoever in sight
I deign myself in attire suitable
wish to seem like one capable
never did I think that I am old
with a smile now, I accept “Old is gold”
The day has gone past.
The events have fled fast.
They have moved away from the original.
Things that could have concluded in internal
has come out in the public to the external.
That which seemed to be cumbersome
has turned out not to be loathsome.
Expecting not such terms all along
had to remain with fingers crossed
keeping the mouth shut all through
but with watchful eyes examining through
a conclusion is yet to come into force
hope to achieve the slot one chose.
It was a long stretch.
A very long one
with a big patch
of driving uphills
and going up in a batch
with little kids
proved to be difficult to match.
The travel was exhaustive
and ran for long hours
The distance was extensive.
covering it in a day needed a prowess.
Yet we went on and on the long drive
with the children squirming
and we getting uncomfortable in the dive.
Reaching the destination at last
unpacked the things in a hurry
putting the children to rest
set up the kitchen without any worry.
Prepared the meals fast
ate the food in no hurry.
Felt relieved and fresh
ready to face anything in the cast.
Solve speedily for the real cause,
Conclude amicably for a peaceful pause,
Oh! resolve as early as a shot.
Delay brings about a terrible mess,
Disdain results in a horrible press,
Deviation accrues a disrespect less,
Oh! resolve as quick as shot.
Resolutions are not very near,
Conclusions look like a smear,
Apprehensions are always in the rear,
Oh! resolve as fast as a shot.
Going ahead of times in a fast pace,
Getting into the venue of next phase,
Running smartly and brightly in a race,
Leads towards a destination of
Characteristics of the animals give insight,
As to the approach and behaviour,
Bulls display a fright,
Bears express a lazy demeanour.
Fast and quick go the bull,
Run and slog do they ,
In an animated spirited full,
To win the glory in a hey.
Slow and measured tread the bear,
Loiter and saunter do they,
In a modest orderly fare,
To reach the goal in a gay.
Both reach the point,
In a different pace,
One in a hurried joint,
The other in a mannered phase.
Bulls claim high returns,
In a short while,
With heavy credence.
Nearly in a hap hazard style.
Bears watch for moderate revenue,
With a light reverence,
Mostly in a streamlined form.
The very same virtue holds the market,
Of shares and stocks,
Releasing an exemplary ticket,
To all the trading flocks.
A hasty bid in the stocks is a gamble
Resulting in an up and a down,
Which act as a preamble,
To the upsurge and show down.
A steady play in the markets is a trade,
Indicating a sound and safe play,
Which work out a design tailor-made,
Hiking up the investments of the day.
