The Chase

“You keep running after it until you catch it. Once caught, you surrender it to the Master only to chase for it once again. Why?” asked his consciousness.

“Because it’s not the Frisbee I’m interested in. It’s the running” said the dog.

I sing a song

I sing in smiles as well in tearsUntitled

I sing not to reach some distant ears

I sing not to please the one who hears

I keep singing till my voice wears

I sing my song for I’m born not of fears

Angel of love

Out in our village, a story did rounds
that there lay something on the high grounds
There was a man some people claimed
who could achieve whatever he aimed
Was he a sage or a magician black?
His history was impossible to crack!
Suddenly it was heard that he died
and he left back a device on his side
The device could even transcend time
could carry us back ages, without a dime
Adventurer I became with a backpack stuck
to unravel the mysteries with some luck!
Lucky I was to unearth the device
and steal it from the dead for no price!!
Excited I was to travel across ages
Feel the times from history’s pages
I went back around a millennium ago
where life seemed calm, uncluttered and slow
Those were the times when angels flew
Spoke to humans and animals few
There I met an angel; flying above
Filling the hearts of people with love
I stood surprised with envy some
for why she abandoned us in times to come?
I asked her in anger “Why this betrayal?
What made you in future, not to prevail?”
She smiled and said, “I reside
in the hearts; which, love abide”
“Your angered voice gives me a sign
that from your heart I must resign”
“Your future has worshiped envy and hate
I had no other choice but to vacate”
I still remember the scene, when I kept on talking
But she never looked back, she just kept walking
