Thank you “ let’s make stories dino” battalion for selecting my entry!!
एक पेड़ लदा है पलाश के फूलों से
सुर्ख लाल गुच्छा, एक हरा पत्ता भी नहीं
गहरी होती रात में, जहां खुशबुएं बेपर्दा हैं
तुम मिले हो मुझे वहां पर
समय से परे, ज़माने से बेपरवाह
मैंने एक लम्हा चुरा लिया है,ख्वाइशों का वास्ता दे कर
बाद में वहाँ दास्ताँ मिलेगी, लम्हा घुल जायेगा कहीं पर
लाल स्याही से रंगे बेलॉस पलाश के फूल
जिनका रंगरेज़ इश्क़ है, खुद ही खिल जाते हैं लापरवाह
बेधड़क बिछ जाते हैं, हर बसंत, तुम्हारी आस के फूल
मेरी सरगोशी के मुख़्तसर से पल
पकते हैं घने पलाश के साये में
तुम कंठस्त हो गए हो मुझे इस छाँव में मिलते मिलते
देखो गुलज़ार होने लगे हैं अब लव्ज़ मेरे
उस दास्ताँ के गहरे टेसू, चुन लाई हूँ, वहीँ से जहां
एक पेड़ लदा है पलाश के फूलों से!
This green balm is serenading, spreading on my forehead beneath the yon sanguine sky. It’s becoming my top of the mind recall…diluting my berserk mind. They say nature stirs a clarity inside you….I say at least it’s engrossing. Each breath has become observant, reminiscent of the vista… thawing the emotions…outlining the blur. I breath a sizable amount… it’s full of lichen and moss. I select the filters in the frame, and match them with my dominant hormones. The repetitive verdure and the crests of mountain tops, fade as I look away… I’m doubting…they’re scheming a plan. The trails along the hills were earlier feeling like burgeoning neurons… are now relaxing. Another fresh gulp of breath… this time it’s pine and willows. It lingers in my tastebuds. A trail of unrecognized thoughts was almost approaching me but my mobile rang. I muted it without any attention. The panorama is captivating me temporarily.
Cascading mystical hills
The eastern influx of sunshine
Spreads its vivacity and awakens the dozing directions all around
Spreading like ether
From the tree crowns, the sunshine basks inwards refined through the canopy of fresh leaves
The woodlands breathe the shining nectar
And the golden ambrosia bathes the whole savanna rejuvenated
The sunfed bluebells and ramsons carpet the landscape as spring winks at the seasonal sky
Thick spring lavishly brews the greenery and bluebells spread like lavender hues
Where new buds complacently bloom, and the oldies die down only to be reborn again!
The perfect postcard picture is painted underneath the golden blue!
Tiny white protrusion Mushroom Pins pushing out from the casing
Button mushroom caps spinning out vigorously,
A baby pinecone splutters to life.
And as the icy deluge melts with the seasonal hibernation,
Green lavish spread coats the savannas.
Nature’s bounty at its blooming best!
Sweet scented hyacinths, daffodils n yellow tulips breezing heralding the spring
Petals unfold as stigmas unwrap straitening their wrinkled backs,
Leaves stutter and seethe basking in the golden sunshine.
Birds squander and flap, screeching cacophonous symphony.
Strawberries fluff n ripens with overflowing nectary juices.
Flamboyant scarlet’s n crimson reds with exfoliated skin.
Meanwhile, Ants and bees march on peony flowers and vines.
Raspberry flowers attract flighted pollinators in the hindsight
Caterpillar chrysalis sneaking and melting.
Butterflies first leap of faith for the blue unknown quest.
Slugs and snails retract into dense humid shells as the day preps,
Aphids wander on curvy branches and ivy!
A giant dew drops cascading through the whistling woods
Slushing the aphids, wetting banality too.
Daisy’s mushroom in green patches, velvety moss growing along
white n yellow wee flowers carpet effortlessly,
as lily fragrances diffuse n linger along the stretch.
It is the nature’s symphony untamed and unscathed.
As the dawn toots softly over the whimpering whispering spring fed landscape; Snow retreats.
Halloween moon whimpers!
The nights suspended smog
Peeps through The dozing mirthless trees
A smog that’s viscose, heaving and panting
One that gropes in the dark elusiveness.
The Yonder looks penetrating and pensive
Katydids and crickets chirp in choruses
warning off predators
In the lone shadows of night jungle
Barred owls hoot in raucous duets
Setting the aural mood of the sinister night
His caws and cackles break the eerie silence
But after a moment, the quietude returns
The whispers tread on
Broken intermittently by palpitations of fretful agonizing whimpers
An entranced shadow holding subtle alchemy intrudes the darkness
It’s a rapacious blood sucking creep
Who Hovers in the emptiness seeking a seize
His Sharp canines, uprise in deathly hallows. In the yellow Halloween moon
While The wilderness dozes in gory dreams
Turning shuffling in discomfort
The vampires and owls slowly hibernate
After binge gnawing the creepy silences
Then a tinge of darkness
Winds it’s paraphernalia
A faint morning ray enters In trepidation
The owls and vampires will meander tonight too
Waiting to pounce and devour on unsuspecting prey!

Away from the atrocities of profane reality
And the marauding claws of urbanization
Still under the vigilant layers of pristine love
And caressed by virgin nature
Time stops at shamli, a paradise of sorts!!
The rain in the mountains here
Humidify the blustery air, waning the grey clouds
And A flight of pegions, hasting a dust, puffing a zeal
flutter your hearts like the blossoming zephyr .
It’s an oasis, serenading the valley
Our trees still grow in Dehra
Lush with panache, with a flair of exquisite artwork.
The cherry trees with ombré blooms
Swirling in line like jamboree celebrations
Form the foliages of the spring!
The boisterous downpours
Heralding rainy seasons
Brings joy to the deciduous willow and the evergreen deodar
And the verdures drink the adrenaline rush
So plush In the foothills of Dehradun.

I was bleeding in emotions and passions
They erupted, In erotic hallucinations
I would crib, and crumble, turn pale and feeble
I shuffled in grey assorted sentiments
In anguish and sunlight
In my heart and in my mind
Then I decided to ink my vulnerabilities
I conjured up my fleeting thoughts
And wrote the lyrical chords
On the incandescent parchments.
It acted as tourniquet
I’m relieved now.
Poetry is my tourniquet!
I bind everything in verses
In free flow or a style
It may or may not convey anything to you
But it’s my savior .
It’s my commitment to stay sane
It’s my ruminating murmurings
Bind by words
Gibberish or otherwise.
I write and it’s my outlet, my outlook
My inside, my hideout!
My cove, my palpitations
My musings, my contemplation!
Mumma’s blessings ❤️🙏🏻🤞
