Two Equal Halves

Equal doesn’t have to be identical

yinyang

If it was so…

The ether was similar to earth

The fire and water were akin

Like two fraternal twins

The Yin and Yang stood for the same

Not symbolizing the duality of nature,

Just two discrete names.

Earth adorns a white bridal veil each winter

Autumn she rests and hibernates

Spring impregnates the seed in her womb

Come summer it grows and germinates

A perfect harmony then, nature reverberates

Ever wonder…

If the cosmos goes askew

And orbs go astray

The sun decides not to rise

The days would get swallowed by nights

No light, no life, no time would hold

The universe will be a one big black hole.

But that’s not what makes the world go round

For zillions of light years what keeps it abound

The Universe subsists and gravity sustains

The orbs revolve, in orbits they remain

Fire, water, air and wood

All respect each other’s protocol

Each element sings its note

The quintessence of existence

Lies in playing their Equal Vital role

Actually…

Equal was never meant to be Identical

But equally relevant

Contrary but complementary

Distinct yet interconnected

Symbiotic but apart

Muscle to move the body

And blood to warm the heart

You need a fine amalgam

To reach a common goal

To give birth to a new life

And make that indivisible whole.

May the Year 2014 be…

May the Year 2014 be…

 

One more opportunity to start afresh

One more milestone to measure success

To celebrate your victories and take account why you failed

To find new lands, bid bon voyage and sail

 

To new challenges, from new terminus we embark

One more chance to build new benchmarks

To sharpen your saw, to light new sparks

To find your own path, to create new landmarks

 

To outlive the old sloth, to embrace the new vim

To shed dullness from eyes, adorn the new gleam

To love, to give, to create, to rejuvenate and preen

Don’t live to die, live to immortalize and redeem

 

May you be you and yet so new

With aggression of a warrior and peace within you

With fire of a sun, yet placid like morning dew

May you be your own model and yet be so true

 

So use the dawn of 2014, to rise and exalt

To bury the outmoded, to liberate and absolve

To set a new goal, to make a new resolve

To begin a new journey, to grow and evolve

 

I AM THE SUN !!

A sky over-cast with dense clouds

Frost cloaks the greens like a shroud

Spread on earth, darkness of night

I am howsoever shining bright

For I am the Sun!

 

Extinguished minds, bereft of spark

Fainting pulse, no blood gushing through heart

Anesthetized senses, touch without heat

Am agile, forever lit

For I am the Sun!

 

Tired stride, wacked feet

Wounded mass, bruised knees

Defaced earth’s frame, tired and fatigued

Am statuesque, strong and lithe

For I am the Sun!

 

I have the power and prowess

To sear through the dense darkness

To ignite the minds with a special sharpness

To fuel the hearts with love and softness

For I am the Sun!

 

I have burnt for zillions of years

To spread light in this universe

I have caused life and climate

I have ruled the cosmos with my tenets

For I am the Sun!

 

Oh my orbs! Bind with my magnet

With my warmth you shine and illuminate

I have carved an orbit for each one of you

I have seeded life and breath in you

For I am the Sun!

 

Don’t go away from me, you’ll freeze to death

Don’t come close to me, you’ll be burnt to slag

You were born from me

You will end within me

For I am the Sun!
