Ode To Living


Living in cities all the year

robs you of your cheer

living in villages and towns

allows you not frown.

 

It would be strange to read this

if you write down a list

the pros would exceed

the cons would recede.

 

Many would not agree with me

as to them cities redeem

being a place of  fantasy

they could pass the time easy.

 

They have many outlets  gigantic

their life moves on in a rhetoric

they greet each other with no feel

everything to them is a deal.

 

They dress up in colourful  attire

seem to be busy even after they retire

their  life  is money nothing more

the city lives with a roar.

Those in town are occupied

they live together unified

never they are showy  and proud

participate  in all not loud.

That of the villagers as known

simple and helpful they are in tone

know not money as a strength indomitable

spirit to them is the most reliable.

The soul lies in the villages as found

they  are rustic but have knowledge sound

their life is a song with a rhythm sweet

remarkable like the birds tweet.

Living Privately.


Nothing would leave me alone

no day I would be alone

being in a community close knit

wish to get away from it a bit

none would leave me alone .

 

I stay from celebrations  most

like to be  in solitude  during these at the most

a crowd seems to take me off from the core

as I wish to enjoy the sea from the shore

I intend to remain alone.

 

It is the gossip that affects me in all

placid interpretations are not in the call

a twist to the tale be the cause

puts me on hold and in a pause

I withdraw  and desire to be alone.

 

Folks find fault with me  for no participation

I smile within myself at their allegations

I had been among them all these four decades

require a break from the usual dressing in brocades

I would prefer  living privately on the whole.10373642_10152373894714675_8529262584983976700_n.jpg

 

 

 

 

An Unfortunate Woman.


Braving the weather.
Sustaining the temper.
Surviving the attack.
Sailing through bad tidesliving on the pavement.
she carried on her living
with a paucity in dwelling
with a morsel to eat
having nothing to beat.
She undaunted lived all the same
along with her children to name
relying on noting good
facing the rude
lying on the pavement
waiting for a betterment
as nothing seem to reach her
she quietly lay down without a murmur.

A Clarion Call


Great be those who mock at others,

Greater be those who humiliate others,

Greatest be those who   provoke others .

Great ,greater and greatest  be not  your call.

 

Small be those who respect others,

Smaller be those who consider others,

Smallest be those who love others,

Small ,smaller, smallest be your call.

 

Wealthy be those who make money ,

Wealthier be those who mint money,

Wealthiest be those who print money,

Wealthy , wealthier, wealthiest be  not your call.

 

Poor be those who  are reliable

Poorer be those who are honorable,

Poorest be those who are  impeccable,

Poor, poorer, poorest be your call.

 

Distinctions go by your extrinsic status

 Never  by your  intrinsic status,

Following is by your escalated status,

Never by your enhanced status.

 

Never be cowed down by deceit,

Never be  tamed down by illicit,

Ever  hold  pride as upbeat,

Ever hold  value as discreet.

 

Thus let your living  go,

Thus let  your practice go,

Thus let your life have a gentle flow,

Thus let you shine with a steady glow.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Live Now


Life is to live well,

With cheer and peace,

Driving hatred in a fleece,

Interacting with an ease,

Oh ! Do we have  more to tell?

 

Life is to earn  ,

With hard work  and perseverance,

Amass wealth never  at other’s grievance,

Make  money with due diligence,

Oh! Is it   the only yearn?

 

 

Life is to be happy,

Cherish every  minute with a proper outfit,

Enjoy each experience in a true befit,

Chase  melancholy  as it is a culprit,

Oh! Is it not  a little crappy?

 

 

Life is to save,

Preserve health with care 

Never seek wealth with a glare,

Hold on to the present bare,

Oh! Is there anything more to rave?

 

 

Life is  for the present,

It is not for the future,

Live well today in rapture,

Live dignified now with nomenclature,

Oh! Can’t you see yonder  light flourescent?

 

 

Life is for only  once,

A mad rush for money is indecent,

A struggle for largess is least complacent,

Losing health in the milieu becomes permanent,

Oh! tell me,  is it not a bad bounce?
