A Time To Heal

8dde3e5b-edb4-40c9-8e5c-e2c6d79a9afb

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Smoke tingled and,
Danced upon his soul.
A simple act of breathing
Was never so painful
Hallucination…?
No. he could feel the
Pinprick of the goosebumps
All over. A manic craving
Slowly threatening to take over
Intoxicating his senses
Feverishly;
Clinging to the remnants
Of self-control he had
He said “NO.”
He knew that he had
Kicked the cigarette
Forever.
He was finally free!
It was now
The time to heal.

(dedicated to my father who kicked this habit years ago)

कुछ बिखरे पल 

images-1

रंजीता नाथ घई

मुट्ठी भर राख और
कुछ बिखरी यादें रह जाती हैं
जो रह रह कर हमें आंसुओं में भिगो जाती हैं|

कागज़ की कश्ती, रेत के घरोंदे
बनाते बचपन बीता, बस यादों में
सिमट के रह गए मेरा बचपन के अफसाने|

हर बीता लम्हा
कभी ख़ुशी, कभी गम
तो कभी नासूर बन जाता है|

दिल डरने लगा है अब
यादों की आहट से, बस याद उनकी आती है,
और रुलाती चली जाती है|

वादा निभाना हमारी आदत, और, 
हमें भूलना उनकी आदत सी हो गई है 
तक़दीर भी अपना खेल दिखाती चली जा रही है|

Nothing Is Ever Finished

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

I keep your memories
Locked in a box,
Hidden in my heart.
Like you keep
Your love for me,
Hidden in your mind.

*

Incomplete;
Without the piece
You took from me.
Life is a spectrum that exists
Between the black and white.
Grey; being questions that have no answer.

*

Memories of you: forever chasing me.
The key to my heart,
Stolen from me.
I do not believe in the definitive.
Nothing is ever finished…
Until all is said and done.

*

I’m giving up the fight.
As neither can win,
Without another glance behind.
Did I leave some pages empty?
The story lies unfinished…
Trapped in times like before.

….but words that I cannot write
Will echo evermore hereafter.

Life Touches You Like That

gloomy-faces-mrutyunjaya-dash

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Wandering aimlessly,
Begging for food to assuage his hunger
He wore a shirt,
Old and tattered…
Holes in places, faded all over;
Sans buttons;
Chest plastered with bandages;
Of injuries unknown to me.

***

It was so ironic,
Me alighting from my car.
Going to buy samosas* to eat,
Not out of hunger.
But because of my whims,
He a beggar.
With not a penny on him,
Hungry; famished,
But no penny to buy food.

***

His eyes; they follow me inside.
Searching for a favor,
Those goodies visible,
Through the showcase; taunting him.
The look he gave shall never leave me.
An unsaid plea;
It made me wonder;
Is Life all about wearing,
A good shirt and having money in your pocket?

***

I guess… a few moments is all that it took,
For me to make up my mind.
And offer help,
Mindlessly, 
I ordered a meal for him too.
Handing it over; I saw,
Puzzled look of the customers,
His face lit up; eyes expressing thanks.
I had no words…
Was I being generous, or just doing my duty?

***

As I walked away from him,
I realized…
Life touches you like that…

*A samosa or samoosa, is a fried or baked dish with a savoury filling, such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas, lentils, macaroni, noodles or minced meat

PS:- This is a true incident which happened with me today.

Childhood Calling

susie-pryor-6

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Getting caught in troubles,
Hop scotching. Skipping. Jumping. Falling.
I would jump and skate,
Being a dare devil,
Always getting bruises and scars,
But that didn’t stop me from going bizarre.

***

I wish today,
I could behave like I did as a kid.
To be out in the sea,
Soaking up the sun and playing in the sand.
Sifting sand through laughter and,
Digging holes with hands.

***

Jumping on a wave,
Waiting for them to crash,
Avoiding the undertow…
Rather…today I just enjoy,
The ocean breeze and the ocean view.
Counting the waves.

***

Revisiting my childhood,
Playing and jumping around.
Unburdened, without any aim.
I wish I could go back and find it:
That moment.
And get back there.

***

Running  silly to catch butterflies.
Tying the dragon flies together by their tails; then setting them free.
Plucking flowers from a tree,
Gathering wild berries,
Disappearing into bushes green.
Running on the playground of life,
Today, I look back with yearning eyes.

***
 
Jumping on the pavement,
Kicking my shoes off and laying down on grass.
Basking in the presence of the world,
Jumping over life’s petty troubles.
I found that peace and left my stress.
What else could I ask for in life?

Passion Untrammelled

3eece9b5c8b814e91bd17861f75caf24

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Lustful whispers;
Fires of passion,
Burning relentlessly;
Unique,
Not random or undefined.
Eyes flickering so brilliantly,
Irresistible lips;
As fiery passion consumes,
Erratic breathing;
Passionate embrace;
Almost teasing; almost retreating,
The winds of passion tugging at hearts,
Intertwined bodies;
Souls dancing passionately;
Heart screams; lust satisfied,
Passion now a quiet past moment.

… and a subtle promise of tomorrow.

Restrained Ambitions and Inborn Passions

abstract-art-passion

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Passion is happiness and bliss.
It is pain and tears.
It is tumultuous.
Passion is victory, triumph and delight.
Soul burning up with the most violent flame; passion.
Where passion leads; fools follow.

*****

Scandalous rumors,
Lustful whispers; jealous lovers,
Restrained ambitions of the insanely devoted,
Hallucinating geniuses trading sleep for progress,
Inglorious bastards, born of passion
Our passion: an obsequious sentiment; ‘forever.’

*****

Passionate speech.
Passionate kiss/embrace.
Passionate plea for help..
Passionate courtship.
Passionate and stormy relationship.
Or, a priest delivering a passionate sermon.

*****

Harboring love and hate.
Failure, success and glory;
Determination and persistence;
When a passionate person rebels,
Beauty resonating deep within the glowing essence.
Redemption and restitution will be sublime.
