The Common Longing



The common longing for belonging

something good like a paradise,

maybe, a dream

knitted in peaceful slumber

or a pet

kept in the self-made cage

to enjoy the sweetness

and playfulness of beautiful nature

but needs all the earthly efforts together

to set it up on the land

as a token of self-consciousness

as the sky is incapable

and helpless

to germinate even

a tiny flower plant

in the space…






Love in earthly style



True love is nothing but a ray of hope

reflected from the divine blessing

to someone else

well fortunate

to be luminous round the clock

and untouchable to any devilish project.

Nevertheless, an earthly life

spends its days and nights


or breaking

the Laws of Nature


for all the things by turn

from a tiny needle

to a colossal excavating machine

making itself

both illuminated and dark

as a disciple

of both the God and the Devil

as per the demand of time

and person to comfort its needy

and greedy body,

mind and soul,

becomes quite blissful

when someone appears

in its life

in quest of a company

for a while or ever

and the life needs too

to tame an enchanting illusion

in heart in the name of love

and it loves

and is loved in earthly style.

Maybe, heart can feel

and soul also can perceive,

a needy and greedy  earthly body

along with an opportunist life

can only trade but not love in its true sense.
