SILENT RAIN

Something seriously wrong today

Dawn of the day without the chirps

No sigh of the wind, no flapping of the wings

Everything is moving in silence!

As if nature went mum or doesn’t want to hum

Oh! Mother earth, are you annoyed?

Sounds of the morning make me feel alive

Say something, what’s troubling?

Drops down the clouds without ‘pitter-patter’

Silent rain rolling down as tears of the eyes

Everything is so calm making me restless

I plead you to speak, oh please don’t be quiet

“No one wants to hear my words anymore!”

The buzz of the flies, slosh of water, rumpling of leaves

Ah! No ears for the sounds that I make

You humans turned deaf to my chatter

My beauty, my talks no more make you flatter

All glued to phones, plugs firmly covering the ears

Guarding your senses from outside ecosphere

People on the walk way, metros or malls

In the cafes, parks, gyms and homes

Earplugs always on, listening noises of the device

What nature says….. Who cares!?

Some sound interrupted the conversation

Is it raining outside?

Oh! Thank God it was just my nightmare!

My Will

Is there life after death?

I wonder if it’s possible to live after my last breath

Too much in love with life; want to live even after I die!

Some say they allot you heaven or hell

Where you go, only your karma can tell

Will there be trees, birds, wind, sea and soil?

Who has seen the world after the demise

There is a condition before I die

Promise me butterflies, mountains and the sky

I’ll embrace death with a smile; just want to live after I die!

When no motion is left and my body looks dead

My soul will be pleading to live, see and love

And this will be my last ‘will’ to adhere

Take away my eyes, heart, liver and every possible part

Plant them in the person who needs them the most

I’m too much in love with the life; want to live even after I die

My eyes will live to admire the beautiful rain

My heart will beat and fall in love again……..
