Fly – Flight – An Ode To Birds

Fly   Flight   An Ode To Birds long poem

Uploaded by Sree Lata Shankar

Birds levitate and are airborne,

Flapping wings soaring to the highest stratosphere,

Flying into the blue yonder,

Over snowcapped mountains, abutting the clouds,

Flying, gliding, landing, so sublime

Perching themselves in the tiny gap between other birds on a cable in the air with such meticulous precision,

Up in the sky, soaring and gliding,

Gazillion birds flying in clear geometric patterns,

Crisscrossing with such accuracy and yet not colliding,

The sight so riveting and divine,

A sole bird flying across the ocean, sun setting on the horizon, picture so panoramic,

Birds in the sky, flying high, always landing with such panache,

Wish I had wings, Wish I could fly,

Buoyant, I’d defy gravity and glide,

Flying with the wind, playing with the clouds,

Fly through the rivers and mountains,

Through forests and jungles,

Atop every picturesque landscape,

Soaring, flying, hovering with birds,

Wish I could fly.

Storm Of Doubts... long poem

There’s a hurricane roaring outside and a storm brewing in my heart; so may emotions in so little time, first push you aside then call you mine. Doubts racing across my mind clouding my usual common sense. Give me time

संग गुज़री यादों को अब भुलाया नहीं जाता ! दिल में जगे जज़्बातों को अब सुलाया नहीं जाता !! झेल लिए ढेरो सितम उसके हर घड़ी,हर डगर, मगर मासूम-सी उसकी सूरत देख बेवफ़ा उसे बुलाया नहीं जाता ! जी करता
