your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch
there are ways out
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness
be on the watch
the gods will offer you chances.
know them
take them
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes
and the more often you learn to do it
the more light there will be
your life is your life
know it while you have it
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you

Sky painting

Scrolled out in the heavens
It started this evening at about seven

Over the horizon a pallet of colors appear
A mega glimpse of the atmosphere

A burst of heaven just showed its face
With pink and red all over the place

Caressing my mind
Mother nature has combined

Her blueprint, with a splash of wine
A message from Gods shrine

A bit of purple and orange to
All mixed in with a sky of blue

She spread them out for all to view
Each one is different in its hue

A sailors warning, a lover dream
Stretched for miles at least it seems

It’s beauty untouchable and rare
Positioned above for all to share

No two are the same
The universe has proclaimed
Sky painting

Innocent Wonderment

I encounter,
innocent
wonderment
in its
thunderous loudness
in the eyes
of a child,
standing alone,
looking at a
giant wheel turning at
mind-boggling speed

DAWN AT SEA

The water by the sun’s first rays
is friendly, soft, serene,
An orange glow enhanced by haze
surrenders things unseen.

A white sail as the mist unfurls
takes shape above a sloop,
A startled fish sends up great swirls
The bait fish jump and sea birds swoop.

This moment strangely mystical
Is salve upon my soul
A phenomenon unequaled
by man’s most lofty goal.

Surely Heaven abounds with
such evanescent majesty
to savor like a heady wine
for all eternity.

A honking horn, a barking dog
assails my ears from shore
to herald life’s realities
Another dawn is o’er

Sunset Embers

The sunset of our life
is still brilliantly ablaze,
just as the Autumns foliage glistens-
amidst it’s frosted, sun-drenched glaze

No fading, timid emotions,
for passion still rages within-
ever longing for a sensual being
to lay beside wanting skin

Cooling embers of age
are naïve as youthful lust,
crying hands hold back tears
of loves we felt unjust

Reluctantly we concede to time
in attempt to suffocate want-
searing pain, silently screams
knowing only loneliness and it’s taunt

For the sunset of our life
is still brilliantly ablaze-
under winters cold white blanket
is where love’s burning desire
silently lays.

Sunrise

As a golden apple
spread its shining leaves
around – you awake
slowly glowing
above empty horizons,
without eyes you can see
how desperate is the earth
for love,
how faithless are people
without God.
But even so – all world
is in shine in your
warm hug,
in your burning core,
Precious sunrise!

Dusk

Dusken the night
with the blood of day,
In fading sight
lay full your range

The force of light
against your stay
All pith of might
has fled away

Within our eyes
your shadows grip,
Our heart’s appease
towards you play

Our fleeting life
all heaven knows,
That in your clutch
no memory shows

A Cheerful Heart

To make our lives more meaningful,
it takes a cheerful heart…
and loving life and living it
each day as a brand new start

It takes a positive attitude
when trials come our way…
and having the strength to carry on
and taking the time to pray

Life is what we make it,
for the time that we are here…
so start each day with a cheerful heart
and see miracles appear

Relationship is a Barter


Relationship is a Barter

Relationship is a Barter

We seldom think about the others, to us the self is the most important of all, and that is human nature at its basic form, I cannot say everybody is like that, but yes majority of us is like that. We demand more and more from the other person but we seldom check out, what we give, what we can sacrifice in a relationship, so a relation is like a clap, yes it needs two hands to clap. 

We definitely need to check only what we can give in love, and not demand much from others.

Queens Necklace – Mumbai – Ajaytao

The Queens Necklace is the most outstanding feature of Mumbai, This is a 4 km drive along the famous Marine Drive and Chowpatty shoreline. Mumbai was named Bombay earlier by the British because it has several bays and the Queens Necklace is the most beautiful among them. During the late evening and night when the light are lit along the Marine Drive it resembles the Necklace and so it was named so after the queen of England by the British rulers in Indian and till today it remains so. the view is simply breathtaking,

I have taken this picture from the right hand side of the necklace from the famous Malabar Hills in the evening. The sunset is behind me.
