होली है— Happy Holi 2021

जब दिलों में उमंग हो— तो होली है,

जब अपनों का संग हो—तो होली है,

फागुन का आगमन हो—तो होली है,

फूलों के रंग ही रंग हों—तो होली है,

अनेकों व्यंजनों की ख़ुशबू हो—तो होली है,

रंग ही रंग हर ओर हो—तो होली है,

उत्साहित और प्रसन्नचित हों, जब भी—

तभी तो होली है—-

रंगों की होली है, ख़ुशियों की होली है ।

The Mountains—Poem.

Mysterious, Magical, Majestic,

Treeless, Pathless, Trackless,

Higher than the Highest,

Towering, Steep, Rocky,

Vivacious, but Calm,

Picturesque and Heavenly,

They inspire, they challenge,

They enthral, they fascinate,

They are magnetic, and majestic,

The symbol of positivity,

The symbol of strength,

Admirations and Fascinations,

I hear your Silence,

Oh! The Majestic Mountains!!!

Birds and Me

When you wake up to the sweet sounds of the chirping of the birds, it’s going to be a lovely day.

The birds still remember the rules of Nature, the singing at dawn and dusk, which many of us have forgotten.

It gives me immense joy to see the little birds, assembling around the bird feeder in my garden.

(Watch the video with the sound on.)

Happy 1st day of March.

Blissful Morning Scenes

Each day is a blessing.

Each Sunrise is an indication of New Beginnings.

Each Beginning has New Possibilities.

And to add to that, is the sweet appearance of the New Blossoms.

Happy Valentine’s Day 🌹🌹

Love is in the air,

Love and care,

Are the basis,

Without which,

Life is rare,

Let the love,

Never fade with time,

Make it timeless,

For those who care.

Hello February—Poem.

Fragrant, Flowers of February,

Flamboyant and Fluorescent,

Harmonious, and alive,

Bright, aromatic blossoms,

My heart rejuvenated,

The Senses stimulated,

Excited and awakened,

Vibrant and motivated.

The Peacock—Poem

Glowing green, black and blue,

Satin silk feathers, that flow,

Wrapped like a flowing skirt,

Elegantly like a bridal gown,

Standing gracefully,

With an impressive crown,

God’s own creation—The Peacock.

The Old Banyan Tree—Poem

Walking past the old Banyan tree,

My eyes are surprised to see,

Who had planted thee,

To give shelter to me,

A thought comes to me,

To plant many more trees,

For my great-grand children to see.

Reminder—Haiku

Walking past the fallen flowers,

Gently reminding me that life is fragile,

That end is natural, inevitable.
