To a Cat

8 Nov

Sleeping on a couch of cement,
Dreaming of things yet to ferment,
Unaware of the metro commuters,
Lost, totally lost in his own world

Doesn`t show any signs of waking,
The weary onlookers envy it,
The easy go ones love it,
But nothing ever seems to bother it

Drenched by life`s struggle,
Tossed by waves of enviousness,
The sleeping cat is a bliss to all,
A picture of eternal repose

Nature is beautiful and to be loved,
Like the cat, let nothing disturb you,
Fully being patient,
Till in heaven, we meet

All in a Train

6 Sep

All in a train we go, all in a train,
A toddler in his father’s arm,
Babbling sounds no one can perceive,


Pointing at everyone with glee,
Till his father kisses his cheek with joy

Two young couples standing besides,
Delighting in the innocence of the toddler,
Dreaming they too would have one soon,
Desiring for the gift yet to be conceived

Two engaged lovers on the other side,
Looking at each other with piercing looks,
A joy on their face of future yet unseen,
Gazing with love yet to be fulfilled

An old man standing besides,
Staring at the toddler with nostalgia,
Reckoning the days when he too had one,
While focusing on the final glory ahead

A bachelor sitting nearby,
Enjoying the gentle actions of the toddler,
While at the same time visualising about his unseen princess,
Till one day he finds her to be bonded in an eternal covenant till death
