Winged Birds

O winged bird! I fancy your flight,
as you jump from bush to bush,
encircle in abandoned corridors,
I wish to be friends with you.

In this balmy summer noon,
I know you would like some shade,
somewhere to rest in day,
cool with hay on side and happy to find some grain.

Hiding behind curtain door,
waiting for you, your chirpy sound,
happen to close door as you come fly,
so small, harmless in my hands.

I loved you I know,
that is why, I choose to color as I may,
red I will paint to spot you easily,
distinguishing as you hop or fly.

Alas! this effort to be with you over,
as soon as you find some puddle,
splashing in it with your fellows,
you soon forgot me, your bond.

Go away, winged bird!
now will see you gliding in sky.

Has Always Been

First Published on Poem Hunter

Once wide open
does seems the world is
riding on breeze
for a moment of thought

my pen is pouring
celebration of life, an afterthought
in own musing of ideas
where a tear is no longer a fear
nothing devises as found in

eternal or has always been.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
