The Magic Of Amboli

  Taste of Ecstasy!!

 

amboli-9

  

In smoky foggy Amboli*

Rain God had his Monopoly

Why would you distrust me?

I am a stranger to hyperbole!!

 

 amboli-1

 

The blazing sun went on a ride

Behind the clouds did he hide?

Couldn’t glimpse him through the day…

Couldn’t even find a glittering ray

 

Never was the sky so beneath                

 Felt the wind with staggering teeth

Soaring with my feet on the ground

With lovely pals around

 amboli-3

And the wayward nature

Determined to make me wetter

Nowhere so cool

Never so better

  amboli-4

How can I disregard those little monkeys?

Staring at us zooming in

Ancestral inheritance came alive

I was no more a human but their cousin

 amboli-5

They were saner than us and wiser than we

Watching the things silently

But the so-called thinkers losing sanity

Jumping at will impatiently

 amboli-6

With the unclear greenery and invisible valley

Down the road we performed a ballet

With the dark choreo in the middle

We seemed to oscillate in the cradle

 amboli-71

Thank you sun for your absence

We could be timid in your presence

Made its mark the intense fantasy

How can I portray this taste of ecstasy?

 amboli-8

When I told the tale and coughed a bit

Mom said,” You are careless, accept it.”

How would you know the pleasure in it

I sprinkled some water and said “Enjoy it!”

Amboli is a hill station near Belgaum, Karnataka

 This Poem is a Nostalgic recollection of the euphoria experienced during a visit to the place when we were in Final Year B.E

Is it Because of U?

 

 

isitcozofu-full
I count the twinkling stars,
I spend the sleepless nights,
I write a poems few,
Is it because of u?

I caught a moving bus,
Winked at a gal like u,
She said, ” What’s the matter, Hey you?”
Is it because of you?

I was in the municipal queue,
On my turn the clerk asked my name,
And I scratched my brain!
It flashed to me when a pal said,
“Hey Uttam, How are you?”
Is it because of you?

I forgot the keys in the car,
Then went inside the bar,
I made the bartender sit,
And said,” Sir, What can I do for u?”
Is it because of you?

Why does my heart beat so fast,
Why is my breath so unstable,
Can I live without you?
No! It’s all because of you.

Come and Cure me of the demential disease,
Come and make my restlessness cease,
Come love, I am waiting for you.
Yes, it’s all because of you.

(Genuinely Uttam”s)

Because It’s love that all I have..

 


I may not be the best, because I can be better

I may not be the Romeo, but I am a lover!

 itsallihave-medium

I may not have touched the glory of success..

I may not have fortunes in excess..

I may not be a winner, but I am a fighter!!

 

I may not bring u the moon if u desire..

I may not fill your hands with stars, if u aspire..

I may not be the Sun, but I can make your life brighter!!

 

I may not give you a golden attire..

I may not give you the gizmo of desire..

I may not afford the lenses of contact.. But I can keep ur tears intact..

 

I want u to smile always..

Keep you happy in all my ways..

I may not have the means to do it .. but I mean to do it..

 

I can do many things for you.. kiss or cry

I can do anything for you.. live or die

But I may not have you at all, because It’s love that all I have..

…. Because It’s love that all I have..

 

(Genuinely Uttam’s)

 

              Poet’s comments:

              Through this poem I try to show-case the futility of the richness of a poor man’s heart. “I” here is not necessarily me.
