Cosmic Musings

Conceiving the birth of a planet
through the cloud of rainbows
in all the glory of the sun
thats orbiting around for fun;
I wake up from my dreams
impressioned by a stellar flame
on the other side of the galaxy
where a different universe begins.

The Trip To Dhanolti

You moved ahead, I moved afar
separated by distance and time
Now as I open your new year greeting
the trip to Dhanolti lingers on my mind,

Remember the walk of the January 1st
a trek to the Sarkhunda Devi
when snow has not yet fallen down
to cover the roads of Dhanolti,

The breakfast at the shop at the base
how delicious those paranthas taste
up in the distance, stood the Nanda Devi
the goddess at her majestic best,

We climbed to the temple over the hill top
stopping to look at the mountains so green
reached there by the noon and the goddess was sleeping
in her abode among the mountains so pristine,

On the other side of the temple
the panorama unfolded a visual treat
as there lay standing far in the distance
the Gangotri glacier, Kedar and Badri and all those holy peaks,

We trekked on all fours to a nearby hill top
where lay fallen the snow of the year bygone
those rays of the sun that shone so brightly
have forgotten to lit this corner unknown,

Down we came and went to Chamba
evening sinking into the sulking town
we began our long walk back to Dhanolti
listening to the mountain sounds,

Who knows how we slept that night
who knows what dreams we dreamt
and though we were looking forward to tomorrow
we silently wished for the day to never end,

Five years is quite some time
& few things have certainly changed
yet there are memories of the trip to Dhanolti
which like our friendship has remain unchanged.

Makes Me Wonder

Makes me wonder

If there's no winter, no summer either
always just the spring,
Will you miss them then
and the Autumn leaves.

All that glitters
for a change is gold,
the ocean and seas
doesn't taste salt.

The birds can talk
the way I talk to you,
The night isn't dark enough
for the ghosts to look through.

Let's assume no one grows old
all remain a child,
Tenderness prevails
in the beasts of wild.

There's no definition of the truth
for there exist no lies,
We could capture time in hand
so that it never flies.

If religions vanish
yet god exists,
fairies bring to reality
your every wish.

When colors are for eyes
not to dilute the minds,
What we say is what we mean
words have no meanings between the lines.

There are no nightmares
when you sleep,
There are no reasons
for anyone to weep.

Would you care to share a tear then
and mourn over the loss,
Will that make you sad, a loss of bad
and things that have gone.

Or will you rejoice
a lesser choice,
Of goodness, good and god
limitations of thought.

The more I think, the more I ponder
It makes me wonder,

Makes me wonder.
