My Sea Garden
My heart is full
waking up before the sun is up
A wondrous day ahead of me
Excited I am up to see
the beauty of the sea
I thank the Lord
For the grace and beauty
Of the green mountains
surrounding the sea
Ready to paddle and waddle
My fingers playfully glide
on the flowing salty water
In the midst of busy days
I find insurmountable solace
In my little sea garden
is my garden of Eden.

It’s a Thunderous Thunder
Rolling away Clouds
Clash of black Clouds
Lightning and Thunders with Ice Stones
Rain and Rain with Darkened Clouds
It’s Natures Angry Rain
Thunders and down-pour with Terrorizing Sounds
Nature’s Angry, Never before seen
People indoors with fear of life
Power supply cut-off searching for shelters
Drainage Water and Everywhere Water
The Deadliest Rain, Standstill Life
People got afraid with Sounds and Noise
Thunderous Sounds with fear gripped people
Life became halt and No Activity seen
The Season is such with Natures cursing
Trees and Wireless Poles fell everywhere
Collapse of dilapidated buildings
Overflow of Lakes with Waterlogged Streets
Streets turned as Lakes, People became helpless
What one can do and who can Say What
No Shelter, No Food
No Water to Drink, No Place to Dine
People shout for help, as No Missionary seen
City Tsunami, Never heard so
People ran helter-skelter
Lives Lost, Damages heavy
Loss and Loss, Everything Loss
No Schools, No Business
Traffic Jams, No Offices
Wait and Wait for helping Hands
Helpless People Saw the Sky
Reliefs seen on War Foot Speed
Paramilitary helped in every way possible
Municipal People swung into action
Government Missionary on Full Time Job
Damages and Loss Countless
Property damages are Irrevocable Loss
People Lost Courage, with Clash of Clouds
Rain Havoc seen in the history of Century
Hopes of People are Ray of Hopes
Patiently waiting for normalcy to return
Peoples’ relief as sigh of relief
The God is great as everything set to normal

... would like to know about water of life
what do you think right now?
world is missing drinking fluid,
confidence, future, duty of nobility
we are lined up behind you,
honestly we do not want to get thirsty
waterless to be driven into the future
Why do you throw ash to our eyes?
Do, take a look, children are dying!?
You are blinding poor youth?
Dear politicians, tell us why?!
Hope you will be helped by God,
we really look forward to,
expecting you will understand needy
not later than at this very moment,
oh, so much we do wish to have water
one day hopefully finally you will realize
selfishness jealousy...... do not work,
please, do figure out!
You, we, world setters
please, we beg you, build sea of water as well for the fields.

THE RHYTHM OF NATURE
The thunder descended on the lightning stairs. It rolled over.
Shook the heavens. Jumped from the tops into the precipices.
The earth shook. The air tore.
The trees, trembling and wet, frightened bowed to the wind.
The fierce terrible whirlwinds plucked grasses, trees, houses.
The town swayed amidst a sea of rain and clouds,
among a chaos of rumble. Our hearts stopped, breath ceased.
Brilliant electric flashes connected the sky with the sea,
the water darkened, the waves elevated -
began to strike the coast, to crumble the seaside.
In the morning the sun rises calmly. The space glowed.
Rainbows glisten on the dew drops - joy fills the air.

HEAVENLY ARGO REFLECTION
Breeze from Colchis
brings golden tinges
from mythical seas
through the centuries.
Silhouettes of rowers
in a united rhythm
with the song of the waves.
glorifies the sun
over the breakwater.

If somewhere someone
Wanted to stop her,
She'll slap him
And race forward for ever and ever.
What obstinacy she has!
What thirst she possesses!
And what kind of race is she running!
Why, maybe, she knows not,
She melts, pulls down and controls
The mountains, rocks and cliffs.
Sometimes, when she is angry,
At several places she creates a havoc with her excessive wrath,
At other places she stings like death.
In this manner the river
Drinks the thirst of human beings
Eats up the man's stinking smell.
And providing beauty.
If I am to express the river is really a flower,
As the flower
Gives off fragrance,
And envelops the garden with beauty.
Neither in return it eats its own sweetness,
Nor admires herself.
In the same way the river
Providing drink to others,
And offering everything she has to others,
She just shares and distributes
And for ever flows on.
Her life is to flow,
Her running is perpetuity.
In this way for ever and ever
Flowing constantly one day the river
Finally, her journey
Surrendering to the sea
Trades her existence herself
And accepts her death herself.
