The Circle – part 1

Far away on the other side of the river, I saw a woman in white clothes with her little son holding her finger. Their clothes were flowing in the air and they were whispering something. They were hopeful that I would listen to them. They were agitated, they were worried. They wanted to scream but they couldn’t .

Maybe they were shouting but it was only reaching me like a breath flowing through the surface of the river. They wanted me to come to them but this river, it was turning to something else.

I approached the edge of the river, it was becoming red, like blood red. It was poisonous, it smelled like acid. But I felt like I should cross it and so I dived into the river.

It was freezing cold and it slowly numbed my body. I swam as fast as I could against the upstream but I couldn’t move an inch. Something was pulling me from them. I looked back- Oh hell! Thousands of demons, all soaked in blood gathered around me.

They were holding my body, pulling me to every direction. It was pandemonium all around. Their voices all around me, they were screaming at me. It was tearing me apart. I tried my best to move ahead but the more I pulled the lesser I moved.

I looked at the woman, she raised her hand and tried desperately to reach me. I was totally engulfed with pain, dejection and agony. My head was cracking into pieces and my body was trembling with pain. I wanted to get out of that.

“Please, someone help!”

Then I heard the voice-

“Life is just an illusion, what you seek is beyond humans. Wake up son, you have to make it quick. “

I opened my heavy eyes with some difficulty to see the familiar face.

The Circle-part 2

Building Life

Accepting Life
Embracing materialism
Spirit builds life
Brick by Brick.

Acquiring skills
Learning the art
Soul weaves life
Brick by brick.

Shaping the world
Guiding the light
Building the world
Brick by brick.

Awaiting the end
Contented with glory
Spirit leaves body
Brick by brick.

In The North

The earth is burning,
The soil is dying,
Masses are tormented,
By the Flames
In the North.

The Sun
Showering embers,
The winds Blowing fire,
The Home is in peril,
Our home in the north.

Heaven we seek,
To the south ,
We Retreat
But the heart never blooms
Away From the north.

And then we see
The monsoons
From the heaven,
Quenched our Land
And our hearts
In the North.

Thanks a lot friends for these awards! It means a lot for me.

There are different questions for these awards. I am trying to answer them in the following lines about me.

  • I am currently in my learning stage and working hard to carve out my niche in writing.
  • I have a passion for reading, writing. Apart from this, I have a passion for music and I am an amateur musician. I play rhythm on acoustic guitar and sing.
  • Some friends call me introvert. The reason is simple, most of them do not think like me, They are not avid readers like me and also because I am not very talkative. But still I try to mix up with them.
  • My favorite authors are Dan Brown and Stephen Hawkins. I have read Booker Award winning authors like- Salman Rushdie, Eleanor Catton, Julian Barnes.
  • I am a firm Believer of God and I think that whoever follow the path of Karma is a Theist.
  • These days I am thinking of blending my music with poetry and very soon I am going to that on my blog.
