A Poem for Him

Since we cosigned in the race of this life cycle,
We have been two wheels of the same bicycle.

You lead me through the seven set circles,
Each has been conjured with many miracles.

The loyalty and longing intertwine hearts,
The routines and the duties tug us apart.

Your foot on the brake and steady navigation,
have guided our lives without deviation.

In life’s uphill journey, I follow when you roll,
If you slip into reverse, I cruise and control.

The push and pull, check and balance,
A keen, kind critique brings best out of me.

A good spouse, a great father and a superb grandfather,
I hope and wish the ride goes far and farther.

Is This Heaven ….?

Posted in કાવ્યો by saryu on May 13th, 2012

Is this Heaven or what?

The birds fly by with me on their wings,
Sweet chirping in trees, competing to sing,
The birds and the leaves are turning their heads,
Is this Heaven or what?

The sailing and piling of cloud after cloud,
The sun on its tippy toes, holding the veil,
The sand and the rays feel warm and wonder,
Is this Heaven or what?

The seeds are sleeping, quite snug and safe,
Spring comes swinging to shake them awake,
The seedlings spring out so green and grinning,
Is this Heaven or what?

I sit on my deck so close to the dell,
  Imbibe all I can to please my each cell,
The life in me love to ask an angel,
Is this Heaven or what?
——-

Early in the morning, I was sitting on our deck with a cup of tea. The gentle birds were flying, the trees were singing and the sailing away clouds, gave me the first line.
