The Banyan Tree

Standing underneath this huge tree

a thought came to me.. I wish I could age like a Banyan Tree.

It’s roots grip the ground firmly,

while it’s branches continue growing ambitiously.

Its aerial roots seem hanging like the

flowing beard of a revered elderly.

It’s presence as imposing as the patriarch of a clan undoubtedly.
A true symbol of longetivity,

showing how to age with equanimity.

I wish like it I too could offer salubrious shade to all those who choose my company.

Where I could share the benefits of my success with others generously and provide shelter to whoever comesto me.

Where like this Kalpvruksh I could also contribute to the society whole heartedly and am venerated just like the Banyan tree.

The Trophy

On an awards ceremony,

I sat in the audience,

awaiting the presentation of the trophy.

As I looked at the coveted trophy

a thought flashed to me.

A trophy is a reward for excellence

but it also valorizes our action.

It is an appreciation for a performance

but it may have been the very motivation.

It is a vestige of an achievement but is seen by others with envious admiration.

What if there was no trophy ?

No incentive to encourage participation.

No bait for a competitive performance.

Just appreciation without any material manifestation?

If only achievements were acknowledged

without the presentation of trophies any,

there would be no urge to display materialistic acquisitions as trophies for our success every.

Resurrection

At the crack of dawn a small bud is born.

It blooms into a beautiful flower,

basking in the golden rays of the Sun.

Its colour is very appealing and it’s fragrance is equally pleasing.

It sways youthfully in the morning breeze and also withstands the harsh afternoon Sun.
It even bears the evening rain and storm.

Come night, it begins to bend and then slowly starts to wither away , till it is gone.

Although its life is short,

it brought happiness along

and stays in our memory for long.
The story doesn’t end here because

after some time another will appear.
One that is similar to what was earlier.

This is the law of Nature.

What is born here will die

sooner or later, ..so that it can reappear.

The Tempting Lies

I spoke a lie….. When I was small to scamper away

from harm, thinking it was fine.

In the bargain, I left my courage behind.

I spoke a lie…. When I was young to look dapper ,

as it allowed me to shine.

In the bargain, I let my honesty die.

I spoke a lie…. when I was mature to pamper

the vain ego of mine.

In the bargain, I lost all peace of mind.

Now as I introspect

I can clearly interpret.

Lies brought little gains

in return for a heavy price.

I wish I had known this

each time I spoke lies.

Lost Love

When the Sun takes a bow

just before saying goodbye

and the light changes to faint red

with the blushing sky,

I see you giving me a loving smile,

through my mind’s eye.

As the stars begin to coruscate

in the dark sky

and the clouds make the Moon shy

I quietly remember

the happy moments you and I

lived together

and now gone by.

As I close my eyes now

I let your memories

become my lullaby.

The Sage

On his annual pilgrimage

to a temple on a mountainous range

he was bitten by a venomous snake.

Hollering in angst and with fear on his face he awakened a mediating sage.

The Sage treated him with an antidote

and saved him from death immediate.

Thanking the Sage profusely,

he continued on his pilgrimage.

Years later when he fell sick with age,

he again remembered the saviour sage.

On finding him he begged for an elixir,

bribing him with a treasure for a cure.

The sage calmly discoursed

with wisdom echoing in his words, “I am not God and God alone has the powers to heal

but your need sees me as Him.

I am just a face among His many

whom He chose to save you then.“ #qoutes#dailyqoutes#qouteoftheday #qoutestoliveby#poems#poetsofinstagram#poem#poetry #qoutetosee#wisewords#wordsofwisdom#writings #writersofinstagram #writersofig #instaqoutes #foodforthought #thoughtoftheday #writterscommunity#words#wordporn#textgram#thoughts#spilledink:wiselysaid

Stranger

A stranger I will always remember

Pleasing face with beckoning eyes

spontaneous smile and a soothing voice.

Features portraying no guile

only innocence all the while.

Her company let me forget, who am I.

I lost myself looking into her hazel eye.

Seemed I knew her from ages as though

She was so familiar down to the core.

Her presence made time fly

From evening it turned into a dark sky.

Trivial talk and pleasantries alone,

exchanged with her and nothing more.

I forgot to ask her, where would I find her once more and fate too let her remain a stranger like before.

Voices

Voices I hear,  not of others but my own

when I sit mulling all alone.

The ones that rise over the din

are not one but a twin.

They originate though feebly

but begin to resonate loudly.

One echoes the opinion of many,

while the other speaks the opposite very.

One is ambitious and risky while the

other shelters me in security.

One convinces my mind

but torments my soul.

The other belies all logic

but seems the voice of my soul.

Amidst these conflicting voices

I get totally confused.

Whom among the two I choose

decides what I gain and what I loose.

The Right Proportion

Everything that leaves an impression

is always in the right proportion.

If it is less in measure

it brings no pleasure

while more too is no treasure.
What is less for some

maybe more for the other.

What is sufficient for today

may fall short by tomorrow.

Then, What is the right measure ?

Each have their own answer,

and is different for every other.

The right measure is what will balance your belief with your fear.

Before deciding the right portion

look at those who have none altogether

and ask yourself,

Will more make me better ?

Superstition

Impressions of fear

inherited from someone near.

A belief ingrained in your subconscious that makes you

practise an absurdity habitually.

It can sting like a snake and

paralyze you into inaction completely.

A superstition convolutes a simple situation beyond comprehension of any.
Foolishness endorsed by you so sincerely

that it makes others wonder

if you can think rationally.

By building confidence in your ability and foregoing the fear of uncertainty,

you alone can emancipate yourself from the snare laid by superstitions many.

The Horseshoe

He hung a horseshoe outside his door,

but the elusive Luck didn’t come indoor.

Thinking his house had a directional fault

he pulled it down and rebuilt it once more.

Yet again Luck eluded his door.

He then visited the shrine of his deity,

travelling on foot for the onerous journey.

There he questioned the Priest holy,

about the Providence of the Almighty.

The Priest enlightened, ‘You chose an arduous path to reach here but want success to come to you quickly !

You corrected the faults in your house

but let the faults in yourself be untouched.

The horseshoe hung outside your door

will bring you Luck surely if only you believe in yourself as much you do on folklore.” #qoutes#dailyqoutes#qouteoftheday #qoutestoliveby#poems#poetsofinstagram#poem#poetry #qoutetosee#wisewords#wordsofwisdom#writings #writersofinstagram #writersofig #instaqoutes #foodforthought #thoughtoftheday #writterscommunity#words#wordporn#textgram#thoughts#spilledink:wiselysaid
