Dealing with the lecherous stares.
The words unheard,
The expressions of subtle
Non-verbal nuances of thoughts.
Ears alert;
Listening to the unspoken word
Newspaper carrying headlines oft heard.
As the air whispers caution in your ear,
Amidst your own unique indulgent nature
And dazzling intrinsic sensuality. “Oh, Girl!”
Are you reading between the lines or
Are you looking hard for something that isn’t really there?

The Eagle

The eagle’s place
Is above the clouds, chasing
The winds far and beyond
Beyond the horizons
Into the vast open skies…
Like a phoenix, it will rise
To capture the skies
To capture the skies.
 
Circling the mountains high
Ne’er knowing the reason why
Claws ever ready to grab branch or prey,
The call of the eagle loud crisp
The sound of it is a joy to hear.
The great eagle soars, flying above my head
To capture the skies
To capture the skies.
 
Soaring above the trident peak
Over the Himalayas white; it flies
Flies high, with fire in its eyes,
Above the purple dawn,
Blood on its talons, wings so wide,
Broken feathers, swift by nature, born for flight,
To capture the skies
To capture the skies.

Speak Softly For They Are Listening

Originally published on atrangizindagieksafar

The butterflies have fled.
Sparrows have flown away;
Never to return.
Living within the circle of smoke and fumes
That hovers above.
Arrogantly. Ravenously;
Fighting over pieces of the earth,
As if driven by the devil.
We beasts; The Humans,
Born from her;
Dependent on her,
Yet, we dishonour her creations.

*

Fully aware of our misdeeds;
We pillaged.
Like pirates possessed by the evil;
We pillaged.
Drilling into the heart of the oceans;
We pillaged.
Burning the forests to create concrete jungles;
We pillaged.
Each hill, each valley;
We pillaged.
Wars; ruins and rubble; depressing debris,
And ashes about everywhere. We pillaged.

*

When raping, killing, looting,
And pillaging is a punishable offence…
Why then is pillaging of nature justified…?
I speak softly for They, are listening.
The assassins will be cornered,
The nemesis defeated;
And the day of inevitable retribution will come.

Nature’s Redolent Perfumes

Originally posted at atrangizindagieksafar

Cozily wrapped in blankets
Warmth of love, radiating
Somewhere ‘tween smiles and yawns.
The coffee pot gurgles and coughs
Morning brew; aromatic coffee
Awakening my senses.
As nosey sun squeezes
Through the bedroom curtains,
I imagine you’re here with me.

*

Fragrant flowers; a touch of satin scarlet rose petals,
Sweet, soft and sensual; their stunning presence.
The fresh, “green” scent of a just-mowed lawn
Trying to save itself
From the injury just inflicted
Arousing aromatic scents,
Lingering in my mind, teasing,
Inhaling the freshest heaven
I imagine you’re here with me.

*

Reticent moments,
Reminisces of cardamom spice
Still wafting midst
Cognac and aromatic candles burning
Fresh scented linens and
Last night’s heady rendezvous in my dreams;
play softly upon my mind
Lost inside an unforgettable aromatic world
As I once more imagine you’re here with me.

*

My senses will never forget
Your sultry shadow’s seduction.
Nature’s redolent perfumes,
In the midst of a dawn.
Soothing music of you breathing as you sleep.
To breathe in the aromatic muse.
Fragrant inspiration lingers,
Appearing in whispered visions,
And I imagine you’re here with me.

A Regal Blue and Breathtakingly Bold

Mysteriously beautiful;
I see you parading.
Unpredictable;
A tad bit capricious
Strutting conspicuously
Showing off;
Flaunting your brilliant
Blue-green flawless plumage
Of exquisite beauty up for display.

*

Welcoming the rain
Loud and boisterous
You prance like enraged dancer
Fluttering with enthusiasm
Showcasing all your emotions.
With pride in your eyes.
Opening your plumage creating a masterpiece.
Attracting the coquettish peahen,
Expressing your love vibrantly.

*

Confidence personified
Or you’re simply being ostentatious
Nothing is perfect in this world
Not even the peacock itself.
Even beautiful creations
Contain imperfection
A million stunning feathers
Drawing attention away from its feet.
A reminder; somewhere we all are flawed.

*

A stoic expression and confident stance
Beady eyed; flamboyant;
Extravagant. Theatrical.
Alluring, almost mysterious
Your colours blinding my eyes.
Standing quiet among the other birds
Marvelling at all your splendour, I still fail to understand
Why you peacocks walk all alone?
Is it your regal nature or you are just too pretentious.

Trapped In A Filthy Cage

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-black-white-bird-cage-tree-image39652141

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Smog filled air; choked lungs.
Trash filled land.

Dirty streets,
And filthy garbage mounds.

Burning leaves
Choking the bees and the birds.

Grey stripped puffy tailed squirrels searching for nuts.
Forced to learn to avoid large cars and which roads not to trust.

Polluting factories dirtying the water bodies,
Threshers and mining machines rolling up the dust.

Smoke of burning paddy,
And the black ashen soils.

Villagers abandoning their homes
Flooding the cities for new places to stay; new occupations to follow.

Fast-food replacing home-cooked meals in the kitchens,
Farmers committing suicide due to shortage of funds.

Pollution; over-population our nemesis,
Gadgets and loneliness our constant companion.

New horizons and new planets are being sought
By this creature called MAN, who has no respect for his land.

Hear my voice, and hear them loud
And then you shall speak for you’ve no reasons to feel proud.

There’s more than what meets the eye,
Time is premium. Stop waiting for a hero, to save the planet.

Do not bow. Free yourself from these filthy cages,
They will know you’re not weak. Just don’t let your spirit die.

Love Makes the World Go ‘Round

14993462_1354297891247302_5636243996134544415_n

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

I never thought
Not even for a moment
That I would stumble across
An abandoned motherless kitten
Of just two weeks old.

*

And yet here I am tonight
Feeding it; nursing it,
Through the day, through the night
Only to keep it alive.
A surrogate human mom.

*

No feelings hidden…
No second thoughts…
Here I am making promises
To find her a home
Once she’s able to walk alone.

*

The cerulean blue eyes
Smokey coat
Face resembling a leopard
Angel, that’s what I call her
The most beautiful kitty who even my dogs adore.

*

A transferable job;
An ever expanding family of distressed animals,
Treatment and Adoption are my only logical course of action.
A split second it takes me, no second thoughts
To help an animal in distress if it comes along.

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

In the vast expanding universe
We’re all searching for forever love
Forever relationships.
And miss out on
Tiny moments of bliss.

*

They may be tiny
But not tinnier than
Any grain of sand
Or a grain of salt.

*

Tiny voices scream
In my subconscious mind.
Forgotten memories
I relive in my dreams.

*

Tiny hands, tiny footsteps,
Tiny seeds all scattered around.
A tiny blade of grass stretching itself in the sun.
A tiny sapling reaching out for the blue skies above.

*

In this vast, great wide world full of tiny things
I am merely an insignificant speck
No matter how tiny I am,
No matter how insignificant I may feel…

…I know I’m for real.

You’re Alive

16-year-old-artist-surreal-paintings-dimitra-milan-15

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Some days you’ll feel like giving up,
Or wish you could hide away and never return,
On days when the shadows are overwhelming you,
When ominous clouds block any glimpse of sunlight,
On days when nothing feels right,
Get up. Breathe.
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it.
You’re alive…

*

On days when you are sinking,
You don’t know if you have the strength to go on,
Somedays life will be unreasonably hard…
Harder than you ever imagined or expected,
Pushing you to the point of exhaustion,
Get up. Breathe.
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it.
You’re alive…

*

When every portion of your life is daunting,
When you feel like a misfit in your surroundings,
Can’t put your finger on the why…
Feeling empty…exhausted…done…!!
Hang on…! Hang on to one tiny little flicker of hope, and,
Get up. Breathe.
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it.
You’re alive…

*

You feel you are too broken to be fixed,
That your mind is a mess,
An irreparable damage is done,
Like a flowing river
Nothing ever stays the same in this world, so,
Get up. Breathe.
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it.
You’re alive…

*

Let the pain sink in,
Acknowledge it,
Sadness is not a sign of weakness,
Carefully consider the thoughts you choose to believe in,
And, you begin to heal again, hence,
Get up. Breathe.
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it.
You’re alive…

*

Don’t give in…. not yet,
Hold on, for as long as you need,
Just don’t let go,
You can never ever be permanently broken,
Let your soul heal itself, so,
Get up. Breathe.
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it.
You’re alive…

Cruising Along To a Distant Shore

(c) Manchester City Galleries; Supplied by The Public Catalogue Foundation

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

I tell them I’ve got a story to tell,
And they listen with clogged ears,
Stuck on their own theories.
Feeling the terrible urgency of ageing,
A foreboding;
A sense of something,
Left unaccomplished,
Keeps constantly clawing at my thoughts,
When I should be enjoying,
What life I have been left.

*

It’s a cautioning;
There isn’t time allotted for me to find
An answer, to seek fulfilment.
Changing times drives me to a point
Where belligerence is natural.
Man…!! What has he done with
His life to merit my existence?
To warrant another sunrise?
Another soft rainfall?
Such questions go without an answer.

*

A curtain of impatience descends.
Emotional Intensity,
Looms larger today.
An urgency for completion,
Comes intensely into play.
My integrity is crossed, intentions are criticized
And cohesiveness is lost.
Cruising along the banks;
Flowing with rapid urgency;
Time shall never be still for me.

*

Sweeping everything away that comes my way,
I move towards a distant shore
Finding a resting place;
A distant shore.
It’s too late for stories now.
Too late for confessions.
I’m only a rushing river
That had a story to tell. I hope,
Someday when you have a story to tell,
Someone will listen. Really listen.
