Hey Moments !

In a speck of moment
You sprout, you drain, you change!
Hey great sorceress!
You possess the karmic wand.
So for you our destiny is nothing less than
a joker’s play on trapeze.
How could you enjoy
our pathetic efforts of balancing act?
You force us to laugh loudly
even our life socked in tears and fears.
How brilliantly you hook us
in the harness of uncertainty!
You surprise us, break us, shock us!
We wonder who you are!
Are you insane or sane?
Are you God or evil?
Are you life or death?
Does life hides in you?
Or life breathes in you?
Or both life and you are one?
Why are you fooling us
Are you helpless like us
and part of your own unknown destiny?

Our Time

Our time
is over
like a river
ends in the sea.

Our time
is over
like a quiver
of nervous lips.

Our time
was one
like the sun
in the monsoon.

Our time
has gone
like a torn
piece of page.

Our time
was sung
like the young
hearts in spring.

Our time
was perhaps
just a lapse
of destiny.

Our time
never began
rather than
say it’s over.

Our time
was just a dream,
a promise’s ghost,
a pebble lost
in the stream
of life…
