The Rainbow of Life..

A POEM :
The Rainbow of Life:

I saw-

A rainbow today.

No-

Its not the rainbow in the sky;

That’s just an illusion

It’s the rainbow

That represents

The innumerable colours of life.

Greed, Selfishness

Represents today’s human;

Jealousy seems to be

Each ones policy;

The greed-

For money, Fame, Power

Has blinded the world!

Around which

Their minds seem to whirl.

Love, Beauty, Sacrifice

Where are they

Where are they?

The depth of love

Has hidden in the dark alcove.

Beauty

For today’s man

Lies on the surface

To search the soul

Who has the time or place?

Who believes in sacrificing?

It has been named as dumbness,

Has no worth left;

A feeling which all try to push out of their mind.

The strength which it gives

They’ve forgotten.

No wonder,

There is so much darkness in every soul!

For the light of happiness-

Seems to be present only in pearls.

The red yellow orange

From the rainbow

Have long since turned grey

Burnt to ashes

In the hearth;

Through the greediness and selfishness

Of  today’s human.

“Gam Ka Pyala”..The Cup Of Sorrow

***********************************************************************************************************************

SHER (Lines) IN HINDI :  

“Gam Ka Pyala” –  Cup Of Sorrow

(a few lines  for the unlucky in love)

रहे मुस्कान सदा तेरे चहेरे पर  (Let a smile be there always on your face)

पिए जा गम का प्याला प्यार की सौगात समझ कर.(As gift of love,continue to drink from the cup of sorrow)

बसा ले अपने प्यार की याद अपने सीने मैं, (Make your heart a home in memory of your love)

दर्दे मुहब्बत का बसेरा बना कर. (As a nest for your love memories)

बहाना ना ये अनमोल अश्क फिर कभी, (But never shed these very precious tears again for any human)

ना दे सकेंगे ये जालिम कभी इनका मोल, (The outer world will never understand the true value of them)

सारा जहांन बेच कर (Even if they try selling the world they will never be able to repay for your precious tears, )

Tears are precious, not worth shedding on any human. Let them drop in overflowing joy of the divine

Tears are precious, not worth shedding on any human. Let them overflow only in Joy of the Divine

When in the deepest of meditations you experience the Divine Flow; the overflowing that happens then is worth shedding, as God always holds precious His bhakts love and devotion for Him. He extends His hand and wipes those tears which are shed in His love and Bhakti, giving incredible Joy and Peace. No human and no worldly object is worth those few moments with the Divine!

[I have roughly tried to translate the meaning in English, sadly the translation does not manage to bring out the correct meaning]

Jai Shreeji !!

Me – Only Me !!

A POEM:

ME – ONLY ME !!   abha shahra

Me and Myself

Is that all I am concerned about?

Worried only about my well being

And to hell – with the rest of the world.

The anguish of pain – the cry of despair!

I am deaf to these cries

Because for me, I don’t see beyond myself

Why should I be bothered?

At what ails him or her

I want to be happy – I want to be free!

The rest of them can go look after themselves

Some one needs my love, I don’t care-

The love lost soul crying for help-

The destruction of nature- The pollution of environment;

Is not my responsibility.

I am me – I am myself

I shall continue with my life and myself

No time to be bothered

With the concerns of the world

There is so much out there I have to possess

I need more money

I need more fame

I need more power

How can I waste time on what gives me none of this

Life is so short,

I have to fill my bank accounts

I need more – I need more

Cannot waste time

On what does not give me my returns….

What do you think?

Does it not describe all of us to some extent in our greed for the material trappings in the world?

Have we all not become selfish and blind in our needs for more of everything?

Are we not cutting the branch of the tree on which we are sitting,

in destroying the natural resources for our greed?

Divine ShreeNathji

….  FOR MY DEAREST DIVINE SHREENATHJI

Some words in love for my ShreeNathji – my ShreeRadhaKrishn;

with whose blessings and grace;

in whose Bhao and Mahabhao I have realized my divine nature; my reality

ShreeNathji

“YOU are the dawn of everyday to me, the Hope that sees me through,

The Light that guides the way for me, the Love that’s always true –

YOU are the Joy that fills the heart in me

The BLISS that completes the dreams in me.

YOU are the reason for my tomorrows

YOU are the reason for today

YOU are the reason for my life’s living

YOU are the reason for my soul’s shinning.

YOUR love, friendship, grace

Has shown a new dimension –

I had never thought

I’d attain such contentment.

I want to be possessed by YOU.

I want to belong to YOU.

In my deepest thoughts

I want to hold on to “YOU”.

In total surrender and Bhakti

I offer my total to “YOU”.

Shreeji

The train to memories…

 

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

A short poem…

The whistle,

It deafens my ears,

It dismantles my nerves.

As though to give a message

It passes through every passage.

It pierces my heart, and tears my body apart;

Disheveled, I try to hold on

Hold on, to the past time

Hold on, to the beautiful memories

But the train; Its too fast.

I lose my control, unable to keep my hold;

So I flow along with the tide.

My tears, My dreams drown with me

I am lost Forever…

….. Abha Shahra Shyama

“This is a short poem written several years ago; just thought of sharing it with readers today!”

Because over the years, I found that there is no value in holding on to the past.

When I did let go of the past, I found tremendous Joy, and; the Divine waiting for me, so just a little friendly advice;

“Move on in life, don’t get stuck in frustrations, however dark life seems today”

Beauty of Nature is always healing

Jai Shreeji!!
