Praise your peachy blossoming complexion? Or the long, luscious tresses on your back? Or your striking heart shaped chin? Or your bubbly looks?”: (“What shall I say to please thee?”)

Excerpts from Some Poems

The Splendour of Dawn

The sky is pellucid, brilliant blue at its best; Luminous on one corner is the crescent, And the tiny orbs suffuse as a canopy, While the cosmos is enveloped by a misty Stillness, quietude. A divine, serene, Blankness, barring the murmurs of wind Permeates gently in the mind.

You and I

I sense some floating foot strides. When you sidle up softly to meet me with whiffs of Aroma, Some unsure words, Some Nervous, Demure Gestures, Some veil of Hesitancy, Opacity, Stillness…

Hindi Poetry

जी चाहता है

कोरोना काल में घर बैठे बैठे बहुत थक गया हूं,
बहुत हो गया, दिल ही दिल में सोचता रहता हूं।

मैंने कब कहा

मैंने कब कहा कि मेरी बन जाओ
बस मुझ से अपनी नज़रें न चुराओ

सैनिक की पत्नी का चन्द्रमा को आह्वान

ओ निशाकर, मेरे सुरों की
मधुर प्रेम-मय वर्षा कर दो

मेरे सखा: मेरे श्वास

जिस क्षण मेरा जन्म हुआ
मेरा प्रथम क्रंदन हुआ

The poems that have inspired me in my poetic journey


I have been a writer of prose, having already published two novels, “Wings of Freedom” and “The Full Circle: A Saga of Unrequited Love”. But since my childhood I have also been an admirer of poetry. I still remember nostalgically the great poets, whose poems had impacted my impressionable mind in school and college.
