To an Owl

10 Feb

owl1.jpgOh, you nocturnal beauty,
why do you stare at me,
Has no one ever impressed you?
Or has no one dared to look at you?

Indeed your looks have impressed me,
Night and Day I dream about you,
Those beautiful eyes that stare keep me awake,
Eagerly I wait for my next encounter with you

owl3.jpgThough once in our Villages you were plenty,
When in Nature we did find Solace,
Financially poor were we,
But our heart was full of love for thee,

Late at night we did hear your voice,
Though now only a few trees remain,
Greedy Men have encroached thy place of rest,
Destroying nature night and day for petty interests.

To a Cuckoo

Asian Koel of Cuckoo Family

Long I have heard your voice, that melodious voice,
Koo-Ooo Koo-Ooo, Koo-Ooo Koo-Ooo,
Theme of popular poets and tune of famous movies,
Oh wandering voice I love thee, though never have I seen thee

Once in my In-Laws house, I happened to see you,
Perched on a tree, gazing left and right,
Infinite joy filled my heart,
Of finally perceiving the voice I so long enjoyed

Perfect black beauty with long tail,
Dark crimson eyes staring right at me,
Grey feet and bill grey cum greenish pale,
You adorable Cuckoo, how lovely though art

Back to my daily chores I am now, Of monotony and strain,
Whenever I am drenched by Life`s pains,
I recall to mind that beautiful day I perceived you,
Like a mild medicine, you relive me

Your vision gives me the energy to restart every day anew,
Koo-Ooo Koo-Ooo, God is everywhere you confirm,
Blessed be his name for all eternity,
For creating nature and life so precious

To a Pied Myna

23 Sep

Glamorous looks, Melodious voice,PiedMyna
You shy little Pied Myna, why do you avoid me,
I love your company, be dear to me
I want to hear you, come near to me

I know unlike your cousin the Common Myna,
You aren`t bold enough,
But your beauty surpasses the boldness,
Beautiful is a useful as the useful,
So why worry sing a song of melody

PiedMyna2You enjoy with your comrades flying left and right,
With joyful chill bill of friendship,
Your looks send vibes of joy through one’s soul,
We are addicted to technology but only in nature do we find solace

Oh sometimes indulged in lust and glamour I lose sight of you,
Politics and vain glory eat my head,
But now firmly do I resolve not to lust and no to vain politics,
Firmly till the end for eternity like you to enjoy for God`s glory

 

Sea of Clouds

4 Jan

Sea of Clouds around, Sea of Clouds,clouds
Some white, Some grey, Some still alluring with silver and grey,
Some still, some moving, some seem to be floating,
Many shapes and sizes are they, some like a mountain and others like a valley

Travellers on the plane acclaim this carnival of clouds,
Some wish they could play on this high ground of celestial peace,
Some click pictures of different shapes and shades,
All admiring the splendid grandeur of clouds

Here they are and there they go,
Like mountains moving in the high sky,
Infinite is their stretch,
Its sea of clouds all around

Many have grown indifferent to the nature beyond,
Though it attracts all, only some round,
Wounded nature calls all to be sound,
For it helps us to be around
