Free verse 32 -Angle of View

My eyes look above
The light bit into my eyes
I can see some flying
I can see some talking
A blue umbrella above,
The dark green canopy
Light fights to shine
The touch of breeze waves
Swaying leaves conversing
Wavering leaves reflects people
From one after the other
The light over my eyes,
made me close my eyelids
Splash of memories plays
Opens my eyes slowly
To witness the reality

Missing Real Faces

I can’t find a real face here
Faces smiling, hidden eyes
Truth denied, only illusions
Where can I open up my mouth ?
Where can I find a real friend
Better to shut the mouth
Talk to self, who trusts

Granny

Wrinkled face dusky skin with a smile,
Full white hair tied a knot at end
Head with temple flowers
Forehead filled with holy ash and kumkum,
Light weighted printed saree draped loosely
Visiting temples with oil and camphor
In front of Shrines , chanting mantras

Celebration – A preference

The moment of happiness

Away from cheers and blasts

The presence of togetherness

Away from cakes and claps

The feast of love and peace

Passing smiles from the heart

Feel the joy within

My preference is spending time with the one who never knew the word “Celebration”
