Where is my light....? March 26, 2006

It is dark and it is cold in the deep woods.
I see no light but shadows with no end.
The winds are fast and they tire me down
My husky and me, we walk for home.

Its been days lost in the snow
He turns around and looks at me
His eyes half closed;”Where is my home?”
“Where is my light?” he seems to ask.

I smile and we walk on brave
As he turns away; my smile fades
The fear returns to my face
But he walks stronger now, faith in his master

There will be light, he knows now
“But where is my light?”, I pray.
It’s colder now and my breath is short
My steps faltering and Still we walk....

He turns around once more
I have fallen, he comes running.
His warm breath on my face
like the first time that I held him (in the palm of my hand).

Now his eyes that of strength
I hold him for some time
My blood warms to his eyes
I get up and we walk

The storm rising and Snow falling
We will walk, a pact unsaid
But how long, How far?
I know my light shines somewhere

“Blue from cold, without food and water
Man and husky walk to survive
I watch my sons struggle to live
But my hands are tied.”

“I want them to find thier way
I want them to stand on thier own
For I have made them in my face
I want them to stand on their own”

“My love for them is endless
I want them to find themselves in their eyes
Man and husky bound by no thread
Neither by blood or by specie, united by life.”

I see green leaves, familiar in mind
I see my favorite pine, my husky his
I see the temple dome of village
A single candle burning bright on the spire

I see my light, far and distant
I walk on and all the fatigue is gone
My husky falls all of sudden
He is still; his eyes are blue and open.

In his eyes, I see my light.
For him, I would have been in the woods
Cold and frigid But he has moved on.
His life tough and worth

I pull him on to my shoulder
As I walk over the frozen stream
Lord, I know now where my light is.
It’s in the eyes, the Eyes of your sons

Each Man for...... March 01, 2006

Today as i think for the future,
My past looks over my shoulder
Still wanting to play my today.

Why is it that I can’t be what I used to be?
I wanted to be one who has no defines
But ended up, defined and confined....

Well, no more tolerance for what is banal
No more chains will bind me from glory
No more pondering with that is inconsequential.

Each one thinks of him as center
Blame him not, believe him not
All centers go round and round till they fall.

Realize this futility of such circular pursuit
And then you will see the vision.
Transcend the greater realms of destiny.

My little words in the new sea will grow.
Beyond millions and beyond ages.
Time to rethink and rewrite the rules.

My little words will taketh them to new heavens;
Then in my sleep, will be dreams of peace.
Each man for himself and then for the world.

Blaze of glory........... February 18, 2006

It means nothing anywhere, anymore,
I am lost with nowhere to go.

In the middle of the night, riding fast;
Its thrills me no more, the streets just a blur.

In the midst of the crowd, standing tall;
Intellect ablaze, kills me so more.

Invisible friends, invincible foes;
I wish to sleep without dreams.

Invitations treacherous, no one to trust;
Incessant tingles of deceptive pleasure.

Intoxicating is the pain, but no regrets
Incomprehensible for the soul-less.

Inevitable the end, but the run seems endless.
Into the journey to deaths of the sinister.

I am one who can't deceive; but in me is the will to.
I wish to save but in the end, its the contrary.

Ill will not remain me for long, as I decide
I will be but a vehicle for success

I will be driven but by the will to survive.
I will be emancipated from all that tangles.

Is it not me who hold that key? Where treasures lie beyond
I wish not to see days such, where am no longer me.

It is time to go to places; beyond smoke and shadow.
I know not of place such, but will seek till I find.

Be My Valentine........ February 14, 2006

Neither a fancy nor a fantasy,
You are to me what wind is to sail.
In times of tryst, i have found clarity

Ghostly apparition;Your face, your words.

To not have you in my life
Punishing but real and inevitable
To love once again and then be contend
To die and then to live?

Having held and kissed you
memories sweet and yet painful
The journey is long and without direction
Except for the beacon unlit; yet so bright

The winds have died down, the rains gone
The sun lost in clouds.
Long to be together for once, if not forever
Once together, how not forever??

Precious price, deadly price
But for you to gift to me
Wishes may come true, but
Gather not what you cannot bear.

Parting is certain in life
But not knowing you, is not worth
The Few who have walked along
Failed to cast such impression.

To live with out your love,
it completes not my life.
So walk with me for one last time
And then let the sun set for ever.......
