    To be a cloud-a poem

    Post by renukakkar on Wed Nov 24, 2010 2:55 am

    To be a cloud

    I wish I could be up in the sky,
    like the clouds that seem to fly.
    To me they seem weightless in flight,
    and to see them is indeed a delight.

    Like them I would be afloat,
    over the oceans with ships and boats.
    I would travel over many lands,
    without visas or passport in my hands.

    The sun’s rays I would reflect,
    the rainbow colours I would select.
    Cast them on the lands below,
    At dawn and dust with simmering glow.

    Those air borne and in dangerous plight,
    my direction would show their path of flight.
    Carrying the oceans as steam,
    I’d release them as droplets for rivers and streams.

    A path to heaven I would ensure,
    For the souls with hearts so pure.
    So what If heaven is not yet for me,
    God grant that this cloud I could be.

    yes, i have taken to writing poetry after 30-35 years...here is the previous one i wrote on netlog...it is in hindi and translated into english by me....it is called 'kismet' meaning fate:-


    kismet
    na thi hamari kismet,
    ki hamsafar sath hota
    zindigi ki kathin rahao mai
    hamare sath jo chalta
    na thi hamari........

    vade kiye jo humse
    bhula diye sab tumne
    agni ko sakshi manke
    bhi kiye the vade tumne
    na thi hamari .....

    hamari duniya se dur
    chale to gaye ho
    es zindagi ki raha pae
    akale chalne ko chor gaye ho
    na thi hamari......

    har mushkil ka samana
    hum akele hi karange
    na ho tum to kya
    tumari yaad ke sung karange
    na thi hamari.......

    es jivan ka sath jo chuta
    agle jivan mai na hone denge
    savitri bane ke hum to
    yamraj se bhi bidhlange
    na thi hamari.......

    it was not in my kismet (fate)
    that my life partner would be with me
    on the difficult terrains of life
    he would walk besides me
    it was not in my kismet....

    the promises made to me
    you have forgotten
    those made before the marriage fire
    you have also forgotten
    it was not in my kismet.....

    away from my world
    you have gone
    on the path of life
    you have left me alone
    it was not in my kismet......

    i will face every difficulty
    if necessary alone
    so what if you are not beside me
    memories alongside me will not make me alone
    it was not in my kismet.......

    though in this life our companionship has broken
    in the next life i will not let it happen
    if need be i will like savitri
    fight with yamraj (god of death) to get you even
    it was not in my kismet..........

    That's a great idea. Supporting others
    who go through the up's and down's of
    life's dramatic stage. It does not
    matter if your in India, or other
    parts of the globe, we all feel the
    same pain. Your writings are straight
    from the heart beat
