Fashionable

When do you want me to come

What do you want me to wear

My clothes are no longer fashionable

As I have grown older, I no longer care

What to wear is not my priority 

I’m comfortable in my old wear

They are not prickly, not so new

But soft against my skin I never knew

The colors are faded, and light on the eyes

And what I wear not everyone likes

Mighty

.

Thinking of the woods that run so deep

Have to pass through them

To reach safety

Taking a breath, I pause briefly

Is it safe to go ahead

Or make a return weary

Those by my side are no longer there

Standing alone they have vanished leaving me

Have to cross through the woods that run so deep

There is no turning back for me

Please give me the courage

God Almighty

Finite 

Our life is finite, but we forget

Dreaming our life as we go on living 

We think we have innumerable days

Though we see death stalking

People around us

Till our time to live gets over

And it’s our turn for dying

(Sheen-September2017)

Synchronize

How wonderful it be

If one could synchronize

Cooking with reading as I’m apt to do

How does one harmonize

Taken up with reading, I forget

Glued to the book are my eyes

Just one more page before I see to the pot

My luck! The time over flies 

What is left– the meat is charred

How does one justifies

Foggy

2nd August is my husband’s fifth death anniversary. May his soul rest in peace. Ameen.

Today is the day 

You left elsewhere

Five years of my life have sped away

Foggy days reminds me of you

Makes me inexplicably sad

Overcast skies spill rain from above 

Joins me in tears shed this day
