Flying into the open and ever widening sky
Beyond the horizon which marked my flying high
Soaring above the heavens and the nightly skies
Into the realms of wonderous star studded abode
I reach a garden filled with passionate love and hope
Into that castle of romantic love and faith
I bid my loyalty and welcome my ever warming fate
Saying farewell to all the scars, darkness an...

Love flows gently from the inner core of the heart
Onto the lips of a lover in the form of a lyrics pure
The breeze doth carry all the words to travel far
Into the land of the loved one where he dreams of her
Could you name the verses one by one that the soul may sing
Along with the birds on a moonlit night near the stream swift
As damsels heavenly dances to the tune so love...

Once upon a time, there lived a great Pharoah in the land of Egypt,
He captivated the people of God and made them his servants
Caused much harm to their life and dignity, killing sons and misusing daughters for fun
Moses came to their rescue and caused the great split to occur in Red sea
Escape was God made easy for the people of bondage, now set free
Freedom made them happy and soo...

Until we move ahead, we will never know
What lies beyond the yonder shores, we need to explore
Like a river swift we need to keep flowing on, without retreating
It's only a fear useless within the heart and soul, doubting the future sure
For its but destined for the river to merge within the oceans water pure
Once it reaches the mouth from where it enters the vast ocean floor

Inspire me with words that can have lasting effects on hearts
Words that can break through mountains of massive rocks
Words that can cause the soul to look within, a deep searching
Words that stumble and tumble after the blissful ignorance it sees a miraculous light
Inspire me to write what needs to be told
Things that can move the widest oceans from ever gro...

It was the sultry heat of past few days that was getting unbearable. Those who have home and air conditioning didn't feel much tortured. The poor always bear the brunt of nature's destructive energy. Just when we thought this weather wouldn't change there were deep dark clouds seens in the sky. Suddenly the air became bearable and started soothing us with its gentle cool breeze. Finally we assumed...

As she lay her her head on her soft pillow, her mind drifted into an enchanted world. She knew not how to cross the bridge for she had never seen that land. Trying to figure out each dream that could help her achieve all she wanted but she saw none ho help her there. She retreated to a safe spot where she could get inspiration from God in order to follow the safest and purest route. A beautiful do...

She was learning to walk, talk, read and write. At a tender age when children get love and parental support they are able to achieve big in life but this doesn't mean those without parental love and care are losers. Allah loves an orphan more than seventy mothers together could love. So there's no loss but gain only if you realise the power of Allah with you.
It so happened this little girl was...

For sake of life, silence is better. It keeps many problems at bay but it doesn't mean a person is angry or hasn't any love and care. Silence simply is a pause when things around are creating a mess burdening souls with unhealthy emotions. Let the souls talk and find the words in silence, the words of true love care and everything beyond words can Express. Words are golden, silence is better than ...

Spirituality is a zone less traveled in today's times. We are realistic in our approach and this is how we in today's world survive. Talking about scientific discoveries and medical breakthroughs makes one intelligent and interesting whereas spiritual talks is considered outdated, boring and primitive. As far as I am concerned I think we need to have a balance between both. We can't renounce eithe...

I need to hear the words, before I plan
I need to see, before I believe my thoughts
I need to speak, before I blabber like old times
I need to know the way home, before I start the car
When destination is not known
When there's no guide to tell you the way
When the thoughts are creating mess in the head
What can be the outcome of such a crazy situation
I wish I h...

It was a beautiful day, as the morning sun shine had a new warmth. I was eagerly looking forward to those hours which were now minutes away. While walking in the garden I planned each moment for the day ahead before their arrival. All excited and enchanted by their thoughts, I submerged my past a little too deep reminiscing each glorious day. Those golden days weren't enough unless they had memori...

I stood there gasping for breath, whatever little of me was left within for me to feel alive. As I gained conciousness I stumbled but made efforts to stand balanced and walk. Walk away from that which wounded me and broke me, walk away from the darkness that engulfed me and left me dead. It wasn't easy at first to walk away from something that was a part and parcel of your own set up, that which n...

A sleepy muse randomly speaks
Words are nothing but drowsy
As I type each letter thinking about these
My muse hides under my pillow
I sang a lullaby to put my thoughts to rest
Removing all the growing anxiousness
Soothing my heart and soul basking under moonlight
The breeze won't just let me peacefully sleep
For it brings the familiar fragrances of my...

I was just waiting for the right moment to write about covid 19. It's taken me three months to understand what it's all about. Reading articles, newsletters, scientific researches and layman's guidelines I collected a box of information for my own self.
The attitude of this Corona virus is really bad. His parents did not teach him any manners. Where ever it goes it gets stuck. Cloning is anothe...

The moment I look at the the negatives of the photographs I had clicked long back in time I realize, the negatives when developed into positives makes the pictures worth seeing. No matter how ugly a situation may turn into always try to change the negatives into positives. But how? That's the main question, how do we change the negatives into positives. Well...you can wait for some one to do it fo...

Life isn't a fairy tale but it ain't any nightmare too. So what is life? Well..its the mixture of the above two. Sometimes it's a fairy tale at others its nightmares and most of the times its neither of the two but a sluggish cart ride.
In past many to few years of my life, I have learnt many lessons and taught many to others. My broken past left me with experience making me wise and the good t...

I sat there admiring the beauty of the noon. Unlike those hot summer days, today it was raining. The wind added symphony and music to the words of my thoughts. I framed and reframed many an images in my mind's eye. Slowly painted it enough on the canvas of my heart. The right weather adds beauty to your feelings and uplifts your mood. I was feeling convinced to write down something amazing that da...

A small boy in rags, so thin that you could count his ribs. Not a model but a victim of malnutrition. Poverty in our part of the world is very common. Every next child you meet has a poor story of his own to relate. This little boy was certainly not an exception. He lost his parents at a very tender age, since then his maternal grandmother was taking care of him. A poor woman had five children of ...

For all her losses and failures, she blamed it on them. She had the money, support and prayers return she decided to stick to her comfort zone. Blame game is easy to curb the guilt. Finding faults in others for our own failures is an easy job. Taking responsibility of our own failures is where our maturity shows. There is always a solution, one way or the other things will work out. If you so desp...

With tears in her eyes, she sat on her bed remembering all the good times she had with him. Those were the days, memories of which stays crystal clear in her mind. Nothing in tears could delete any of those memories, they were permanently stuck as if eteched with a love marker pen. Nothing of scribbles, rather clear unconditional true love forever. She often wondered why people couldn't accept tru...

As I entered the dingy dark alley, I could get the damp smell around. This was certainly a lane where sunshine never reached. So, even during day time, this alley seemed to be dark and damp. Nevertheless, I headed forward, looking for the right turn to take. At last, I saw the door, a shabbily dressed man sat at the dead end. Reluctant to ask any question and more so seeing his appearance it made ...
