messenger of divine
liberation of souls
For Poetry Potluck dated 27.12.10 (Monday)
changing colours of festivals
when festival meant celebration
happiness, fun, new dresses
gifts, crackers and treats
waiting all the year
for the hand-counted minutes.
slowly enjoyment takes backseat
spiritualism seeps in
crackers are replaced by hymns
fun, cheer and laughter watches
while deep sense of peace wins
then comes those days
when only the sense of well being
company of divine reins
all other feelings simmer down
festival becomes union with divine.
a satisfied soul sits with a smile
watches others enjoying things it did.

For Thursday Rally for Poets dated 30.12.10 (Thursday)
Only God in heaven
The melodious strain emitting
from the hearts of human beings
in the form of carol, azan or hymns
flow like rivers of love
demolishing each and every barrier
to reach the deep, tranquil ocean
called by millions of names
some are God, Allah or Khuda.
Let every festival make our souls
reach out for that deep ocean
splashing in our very souls
embrace it with love and gratitude
for blessing us with so many colours
so many ways of remembering, loving
the only one God above in heaven.
