Broken Path, Chosen Path. By Dr Swati A Gadgil I chose a path to tread on it lined by trees and gravel on it… though muddy it was and not laid well but protected I felt thought, peace will dwell…. distant from settlements far in the jungle no one to obstruct nothing to entangle….. but then came a turn a tree decided to burn its roots and uproot falling across my run….. my fate was crossed my pace was slashed huge trunk lying flat and dead…… I won’t budge I won’t judge but destiny on my side I hold no grudge….. the trunk just split now two logs huge no tears any bit no emotional deluge…. I was destined to walk fate after all! rise and fall, just take it all…. © Dr Swati A Gadgil, All Rights Reserved.
My Words My Emojis By Dr Swati A Gadgil My words my emojis my smileys and roses for someone every day, some for my folks and some for my pals some for my gals and some for my foes…. Am I pretentious or am I genuine, Am I the same outside and within, Am I the same in crowd and lone, Am I the same in supine and prone? Do I judge people or am I judged, My emojis and words are they fudged… do they mask me do I know for sure what is pure and what is impure, but one thing is certain infantile smile can cure white wash the fakes and bury the flakes silt or scum wash off all aches, Array of emojis and long winding words certainly have a tough from the chirping birds straight from the heart my words my emojis my smileys and roses for someone every day….. © Dr Swati A Gadgil, All Rights Reserved.
The street dogs running around
marking their territory ground, from pillar to pillar and every nook and corner, they would balance precariously on three and not four one hind leg in air sometimes right and then left they pour happily expanding their kingdom and guarding it ferociously….. then came a two legged with super brains and super powers he could talk and not bark he could think and comprehend he could speak a dialect he was blessed with a spark best creation of God was he….. but certainly something was wrong his brain was wired and heartless was he as he too went around marking his territorial ground Spitting red slurry of betel leaves by the pillars and trunks lining the walkways and bang in the center plonk he would spit on the roads newly laid insulting higher faculties his civic sense dead, worse than animals flogging he deserves….. save my country save my animals, scared are they with such competitors who mark larger territories Giving disease to others….. © Dr Swati A Gadgil, All Rights Reserved.

Mirror Mirror on the wall, Who’s the fairest of them all? Do I like this question at all I want to take a call…. Can I imagine my Self only as a Self? just a Soul with powers to dwell… born with a heart to feel the pain born with a brain to measure the gain, speech, hearing and vision touch, taste and locomotion But No Mirror whatsoever, face no entity as looks don’t matter, I want a world where I only see others how ‘I’ look should not bother, My hair My eyes My nose My lips My ears My brows I don’t care….. thus eliminating distractions in my path of Salvation…. Bless me God with selective vision where I understand multiplication and never indulge in division seeing You in Every Body, Every Person, they being the medium of Your expression…. © Dr Swati A Gadgil, All Rights Reserved.
By Dr Swati A Gadgil Mask is a boon which might disappear soon… Do we realise, that one needs to be happy leaving all thoughts crappy no frown on forehead and a grin adorning your beautiful face that no one can comprehend….. But there is a big obstacle and hesitation to overcome They might call me mad imbecile and brad, though my smile is a curved line they would say I am distorted…. What a dilemma I want to smile but cannot, have to put up learned look and emotions to blot, I was happy when Masks arrived I could smile unedited, unaccounted, endlessly and feel the bliss, hidden from the world…. lest they would judge me and quarantine expressions of mine I am merrily smiling behind my mask day and night in His glory I bask, Lords mercy shinning through though everybody may not believe it to be true, I smile and smile not for a while but through the brilliant day and serene nights, Faith supreme as my love is extreme, My unedited version behind the mask, as Mask is a boon which will sadly disappear soon….. © Dr Swati A Gadgil, All Rights Reserved.

Unsettled in Mind By Dr Swati A Gadgil Unsettled in mind suspended thoughts defying gravity confusion I fought….. void undefined hollow walls encasing a shapeless space DNAs escaping….. bonds so strong yet fragile are the strings difficult to hold sustainability on brink….. easier to scatter with a blow of destiny, than to gather with scent of harmony….. naive to follow cohesive rules of Universe demonish it feels to break and disperse….. definition of space convincing and cogent yet happiness trace volatile and tangent…… unless ostracized will not feel the pulse, or when sent to coventry on some random impulse….. unsettled in mind suspended thoughts defying gravity confusion I fought….. ©Dr Swati A Gadgil, All Rights Reserved.
