The strange train journey

Many people boarded the train
our journey had just begun.
In a coach there were 4 of us
5th passenger joined and someone else.

We all wore clothes that were in fashion
his clothes resembled some other nation.
He seemed to be a formidable chap
and we could just listen to his crap.

He carried a pack of cards with him
our future on cards he would be telling
He had tarot cards you see
we were all scared of our future to be.

One by one our cards he displayed
interpreted and then predicted.
The future of all of us was not too good
soon an altercation ensured.

All with ego issues making points
those not listening were given strikes.
Soon there was firing
4 of them lay on the ground dying.

I being the only one left out of this bloodbath
looked at the strangely dressed man and this aftermath.
Do not be scared my child, said he
Get down at the next station whatever it be.

This train is not meant for you yet
by mistaken you have me somehow met.
The bad and ugly souls I come to take away
train journey never stops even for a day.

Heaven is on earth and so is hell
they go through this daily ordeal.
It was something they did long ago
but in their minds they are yet to know.

Station comes my child now your things you gather.
try to forget this incident for ever.
On the path of righteousness if you remain
your journey will never be on this unending train.  


Phoolo se sajna

Tum per kuch phool dale ja rahe the
hum per bhi kuch phool dale ja rahe the.

Tumhare liye naye kapre laye gaye
humare liye bhi naye kapre laye gaye.

Tume bhi sajaya ja raha tha
or hume bhi sajaya ja raha tha.

Tumhare yaha bahut log aa rahe the
humare yaha bhi bahut log aa rahe the.

Tumhare yaha shaniyha baj rahi thi
hamare yaha matam ki ghari thi.

Tumhari nai zindagi banne ja rahi thi
aur humari to duniya se bedai ki tayari thi.

Decorated with flowers

Some flowers were being put on you

some flowers were being put on me too.

New clothes had been purchased for you

new clothes had been purchased for me too.

You were being dressed up
I was also being dressed up.

There were musical instruments playing in your home
there was the time of mourning in my home.

You were on the threshold of becoming someone's wife
I was on the verge of leaving this world for another life.

Haikus-some more

Night's Moonlight !
close your eyes
feel me besides. 

Wind sounds outside! 
no need  worrying
me saying, you i am missing. 

Walking in mist  
feel wind on you, 
that's me saying i love you. 

Feeling a tug!
my hand clasping
your hand it's holding. 

Pretty flower bouquet's decor
purpose serving,
at you smiling. 

Prayers and chant
your day describing,
I'll be hearing. 

Unhappy mood
feeling low,   
you I am missing.
