Swallow's Delight

Raucous fright spread as far, beasts of jungle, lawmakers of land. What hell broke lose without a prison wall being broken.
A chant of greater mysteries revealed, rests in mind both me and you. Why a sudden outpour of rain or hail make a difference.
Inebriated senses of our commonality, is it true fact so far. Why a sense of new direction offers excitement.
Landscapes of human infirmity asked again a definite question. Do you still have answer to this.
Why it is being deniable to seek? Why? I ask from same. A laughable applause, to self. In each arise in volume, so does swallow's delight.

Note# 2: The Library Thing

I remember how my school librarians used to tell that they were sitting outside in the sun during winters and I should notify upon leaving. They used to have fond of me, the solitary being, who loved to read. The fault obviously was in the books. The whole encyclopedic section, I can remember even today, mesmerized me with beautiful pictures and assorted information. When I look back, I find the forming years are very surreal. It is like Bohr’s atomic model where everything is certain and bounded in law and logic. As life grew on, I realized the critical appreciation is necessary but the uncertainty principle resulted in choosing books of more specific and valid interest, languages and sciences.

The practicality of universe does not bother me and when I think of Paulo’s remark from “The Alchemist”, “When you want something, all the universeconspires in helping you to achieve it”, it makes me laugh. This fictional work is perhaps my favorite among all authors but I happe…

Note# 1: Being Closer to Nature

I may not live at the best of the places but the nature shows its merciful side to me in many forms and at times. Quoting Kashmir or Himachal Pradesh would be an overstatement. I might have said it before, may be in another blog or over a light conversation. My house, more rightly of my parents, resides among the hills on one side like a perfect suspense to the world on the other side and large fields on the west.

Watching sunrise is not only scientifically forbidden but also that in Hindu religion, we observe it as the Sun God. Mostly far from dawn, the earth catches its glow and I silently pass in a corridor with a trepidation in my heart. The sunset is in the open horizon and sets in beautiful hues of the whole spectrum. The moon again shows up near nightfall slowly emerging back from the hills and the moment can surely take one’s heart. Again it is quite religious so I observe it with a feeling of reverence mostly. I try to give it notions of lifting of veil but may…

Note# 0: Haiku For Me

The sky over me is cast with specks of horizontal thin clouds in all directions emerging from a round blue sky over a hill, much like the sunrays of the blue sun. I find from quite some months, I have been observing the beauty of nature more subtly than earlier. What could be the reason. Yes, I started writing haiku few months back and it has changed my world of metaphors, free verse, prose intellectualism and imagery.

It could well be a healing tool. The mind wanderlust can stop right here because you can observe summer and winter solstice without being at equator or hear the chirp of migratory birds without being to any famous marshland or wetland reserve. All you need is to keep your words within the syllable count of minimum 17 syllables and pour your heart and mind in it. When you read out your outburst you can feel how much connected you are with the nature. The deviation in life due to complex worldly situation we learn through newspapers, t.v. or internet can su…
