    Destiny Dies But Once

    Wise advise: live in now’s benign presence,
    Scarce in unravelling life not yet made,
    Nor in the past buried deep, dark and dense,
    No sunshine falls on one dreaming in shed.

    Take the fibre of life yet to unfold—
    We dye it with rainbow colours our own,
    Spin it, weave it with warps and woops unrolled
    To reap for us fated fabric unknown.

    Seeds sown in spring bear no fruits by next fall,
    The light and dark shadows we gather here
    Cast their imprint on life’s eternal wall,
    The dead past often does reappear.

    Man lives as if on New Year’s dying eve,
    One eye on year to come, one on to leave.

    The past may die, never its lasting charm,
    Things die bequeathing their memories warm.

    As Krishna’s Song would ne’er die on bookracks,
    Nor Vedic chants stop reverberating,
    Nor ever notes of Beethoven’s, of Bach’s,
    Should faint to loosen their mystical ring.

    So be the charm of unfolding morrow,
    With seeds sown fruits are always awaited,
    For taste remains, remains desire to grow,
    Without desires the life is good as dead.

    Ergo, life riseth time and time again,
    The past liveth tell-tale marks for ever,
    Man must savour or suffer fruits of pain;
    Destiny dies but once journey’s when o’er.
    _____________________________________________________________________
    Man ideally should live in the present moment,
    but would continue still to dream that comes to
    be from the world of his past. The life gets
    born on the wings of this eternal dilemma.
    The basis of rebirth is desire and the journey
    of life ends only when all desires die. In a
    way everyone’s ultimate destiny is the same.
    The soul merges but once when it realises the
    ultimate, and reaches the end of its long
    journey. Yes, the destiny dies but once. These
    concepts form the basis of this poem, which is
    actually a combination of two sonnets.
    The second one starts with the interlinking couplet.

    A prayer too late

    As thy own spark will ye still let me stray?
    Will ye, frayed art in flesh and soul thy own,
    Let me fritter in such sordid a way?
    Do thou re-charge my paled spark blood to bone, read more »

    The Poetry Club

    He enters looking bedraggled, tired and worn out, his skin like vellum, blank and pale.
    Lifting his eyes to catch their gaze he gives a slight nod to acknowledge their presence.
    He scans the room as he would a poem seeking an indent that leads to a quiet corner.
    A half-lit light casts a shadow on the flock wallpaper, ink stained. read more »

    Ghazal

    There’s no sugar in the Promised Land.

    Swear by the olive in the God-kissed land.



    I heard your laughter in the jackal’s howl

    When the monks chanted in the Psalmist’s land. read more »

    Pâques 1916

    Je les ai rencontrés en fin de journée

    Leurs visages semblaient si pleins de vie

    Au sortir de comptoir ou de bureau au détour de grises
Bâtisses du XVIIIe siècle.

    En passant je leur ai adressé un signe de la tête

    A Blank Page

    When I began this page was blank and white,
    But now some words in black, if not in ink
    Are on the screen and a few lines delight
