The Earth was my ground,
As I found deliverance,
And sky my limit.

I asked for pepper.
Life gave me more than I asked,
With a pinch of salt.

Many a mother lost theirs sons
Many a son bereaved theirs wives
It was a struggle with blood and guns
Stabbing from back with sharp knives.

"Fight or die for motherland," they shouted.
Men and women's manners absolved,
A seed of love for motherland sprouted
A tree bearing fruits and flowers, evolved.

Love-tree has life and is life-giving,
But, why is the red only from blood?
The love-tree that bore red flowers is thriving
When love and freedom are labelled to bloodshed.

As the steam rose high,
The lustful couple kissed more
In the shower tub.


As the steam whistled
The food was being cooked
For hungry stomach.

Welcome to wonderland

Do you remember, Miss Alice? She followed a rabbit and got lost in a Wonderland. I wonder if life is also the same! We chase a dream, we run behind it like there is no tomorrow, when they come true, our fears for life are assuaged temporarily, until we find another rabbit to chase. This is a vicious cycle.

So, welcome again to wonderland and which rabbit did you chase down till here?

How can you forget
Your to-do list and home-work
And not your dinner?


A nerve in his brian
That tiny and elusive
Made him forget past.
