A Gift


A gift bought with care,

unmindful of fare,

was a piece very rare,

bearing lot of credentials to share.

proposing many features in pair.

 

It was brought across the shore,

was priceless even more.

The special feeling it bore,

was the core,

enhancing the significance by a score.

 

Reaching the destination finally,

it was unpacked carefully,

Lo! it was damaged slightly.

the tear was visible obviously.

The precious  gift lost its value immediately.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An Epitome Of Pride.


The settlement  proposal lay bare.

He was about to tear.

It had nothing to share.

It was all in all a flare.

 

He was shaking  and fuming.

He angrily  threw everything.

His exasperation was killing. 

The situation was totally inundating.

 

The cream of his inheritance had been swindled.

He was left with little to rekindle.

He did not allow its value to dwindle.

So his siblings wanted to meddle.

 

They came up with a compromise.

It was an edict to legalize.

It was a ploy to legitimize.

It contained nothing to epitomize.

 

No wonder, he shook with indignation.

Their deceit was indeed  an abomination.

Their desire was truly a profanation.

His ordeal provokes  compassion.

 

He grew tall in stature.

His siblings professed no feature. 

He called them faceless creatures.

Well, they have no standing in nomenclature.

Nature Warns.


In the early evening I felt a shudder.

The chair rocked a while.

The table shook a second.

The building jolted  a minute.   

The head wobbled dizzy.

There was panic all over.

 

It was only the  day before.

It was a hot afternoon.

There was not even a breeze.

The tremor caught us unaware.

We were left gaping at the disaster.

 

The disaster was not heavy.

There were no casualty in the run.

There was no monetary loss in the trend. 

The people got evacuated for reasons known

The coastal area felt devastated expressing a frown.

 

The devastation was not physical to the core.

The scare was thoroughly profound all the more.

The apprehension was killing at the most.

The recollections were fearful foretelling a Tsunami

There was a deadly silence reminiscent of a melancholic sadness.

The desolation carried a reference of  lethal premonition.

 

The desolation started to overwhelm in magnitude.

The will to live was driving everyone in platitude.

Nature has its own way of signalling its motion.

It warns the people of their shortfalls.

Wittingly,we cause damage to her in our own way.

Destroying the environment morbidly.

 

Morbidly we throng the habitations in multitudes

Recklessly we contaminate the earth  committing destitute.

Avariciously we work on her for our benefit with self-conceit

Unmindful of her great discomfort and  terrible plight 

Patience has been her virtue for long.

Destruction has been our goal for too long.

 

Playing with Nature is dangerous,mind you

Kidding her virtuosity is harmful,beware.

Humiliating her is perilous,be warned.

She would suddenly break with a vengeance.

Throwing out and tearing  everything in a violence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Pullback


My heart sank to the deepest blue,

The  day’s events pulled me down true,

A shot of quick anger rose in a flew,

A drop of tear rolled down in a groove,

The heart stopped in a slew,

I buried my head in a dejection all through.

 

A few minutes later I got up with vigour,

Brushed aside the tear in a rigour,

Sidelined the events to a meagre,

Abated the fuming resulting out of trigger,

Rose up with a stature even bigger,

Resolved to emerge victorious with a glitter.
