ये कैसी होली? : A Tanka on Holi


ये कैसी होली? मैंने रंगेपुते चेहरों की हर भाषा पढ़ ली सत्ता के दम्भ में रंगी होली, बस उनकी हो ली |   रंगरूटों ने फिर पहने, अजनबी चेहरे ये कैसी होली? हमने अपने अरमानों की होलिका जला ली |   हरे, पीले और लाल ऑर्गेनिक उनके गुलाल कृत्रिम रंगों से जलकर लाल होगये हमारे गाल उफ़! ये कैसी होली !   This poem is a satirical portrayal of the current political scenario where the new recruits are changing their ...

Life is an Art!

life is an art painting by vineeta mishra the style symphony

Where lives art? In a painter’s palette or in a poet’s heart? Does it dwell in a mother’s cooking and seasonings, Or, it lies in a bird’s chirping when the day starts? Today, I’m sharing one of my poems written years back along with a canvas oil painting ‘Bodhisattva’ by my sister Vineeta. Art is life portrayed over a vivid canvas of desires, It’s envisioned with a variance, lit with inner fire. From the incarnations of Lord to nature’s numerous ... Read More »

Seven Cirlces : A Sad Fictional Poem

love no more

After making a settled living, I returned to my town. What did I know life was planning? Which would turn my world upside down! Getting down from bus, I quickly ran to her house. I happen to see there a rush, She was getting somebody else’s spouse. Pain in my heart was heavier, Then the bag full of gifts. Roses in my hand had fallen, Like the leaves from a tree in autumn. She was in red, Like I first ... Read More »

Just like a Karan Johar Film

seasons of love

It was a miracle, To what I had spectacle. Everything was like a dream, Just like a Karan Johar film. At dawn, she came, My Angel in heart’s frame. Pulling a Mont Blanc’s suitcase, And holding a black bag in hand. Beholding the crescent moon I had praise, To let me witness paradise on this land. A huge city was quite, She wore a turtle-neck milk-white. Upon that a bright pink sweater, Her smile changed the weather. It was no ... Read More »

Wish You A Happy New Year 2017: A Poetic Tribute to My Readers

happy new year 2017 the style symphony

The sun rises and then sets A lamp lightens up and fades, Moments arise and then die Falls edify to give life a try. A year begins and then ends But life sustains it’s existence. Old Blossoms shed, but birds still chirp new songs Fresh breeze survives over all fouls and wrongs. Let the light of life glisten over dark, And our souls shine with a luminous spark. Here arrives Janus, the god of all new beginnings, It’s time to ... Read More »
