The first time 
I felt you Love
Was when I
Came out of the womb

As i entered
The world
A  mother's touch and care
Acquainted me with thee

I found it in many avenues
As i grew up
And it buried deep
In the vistas of my heart

I searched endlessly 
For that magical moment
When my soul would dance
In sync with my dreams

I found you Love
Unbelievably Unexpectedly
Like a trailing meteor
Capricious by habit

I bathed in your glory
Diving deep to its profundity
Unabashedly I drank
Thy magical potion

But like the ephemeral meteor
You disappeared without notice
Leaving me alone
Having stamped my heart till infinity

I wandered aimlessly
Wanting you back in my arms
My heartbeats soared and dipped
A tragic symphony

One fine  day
The approaching New Year
Showed me the mirror
And i made my peace

You were sweet indeed
Throwing me to the
Brinks of

But there was 
A life to be lived in fecundity
A precious gift
From Eternity

As the sun shone high and bright
I vowed
To be a better man
Than i was yesterday

Wish for 2015

तच चक्षुर देवहितं 
पुरस्ताच छुक्रम उच्च चरत 
पश्येम  शरदः   शतम 
जीवेम  शरदः  शतम 
श्रीणु  यामा शरदः  शतम 
भूयश  चा  शरदः  शतम 

That Ever-wakeful Eye, Eternal, Pure

That watches close the deeds of right and wrong

Whose Holy Grace the learned souls secure

May bless in life my prayer’s sacred song.

And may we live and see a hundred years,

A hundred autumns hear His Holy Name,

And sing His Glory free from human fears

That close attend the heels of earthly fame.

And if we live for more than a hundred years,

The same delight attend us all the days

We live, and bring us all the sacred cheers

For which the heart to gracious heaven prays.

                                                                  Yajur Veda 36 : 24

This 2015 I pray that I may live to see a Hundred Autumns with my mind, body and spirit in perfect synchronization, and with no earthly Malaise.

May 2015 be the best year so far for you.

Wishing all readers of DAFFODILS a wonderful and prosperous 2015.
