Neither I ask to forget the past Nor to take flights of imagination Just I ask to keep an eye on Who we are or what we do As that is our today’s destination.
Living on clouds is not the solution Nor dwelling upon the dead past Living with what we do have Is the present which never goes past.

Mind is a busy battleground Warriors are past and the future Killing the pleasing present Which is the source of real pleasure? Let’s be off from this arena Where dead fights with unborn And sway whole-hog in today That brings peace to lovelorn.
Poet’s Note: Past is dead and future is unborn. But we human beings are so wise that we dwell in them most of the time and so foolish that we disregard what we have in our hands !

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
