WORD STREAM (30) Welcome,New Year

 WORD STREAM (30) Welcome, New Year
************************************


          ?

I tried to see him in darkness,
 Shivering in cold breeze,
Opened the door at the knock-
And greeted him-'welcome please.'

He was bright new YEAR,
Who entered my dwelling- place,
The radiance of divine light,
Was shining on his face.

He promised me all heaven,
To follow him behind-
All happiness, pleasure and joy,
Golden moments, that we rewind.

Terror, hatred, grief,misery,and pain,
Calamities and sorrows of a wide range-
He assured to erase all; only one question-
“ Can yourself in YOU, will change?”

The guest had sorrowful smile on the face,
"You search me in party,balloon,drink,dance,
You pretend to enjoy,dip and merge the self,
Try to arrest moments,without any chance."


"More than twenty centuries have passed,
'HIS' divine message is  simple and clear,
Have you learned the message of humanity?
-Or you add one new number every year?"


 I ignored that difficult,unsolved question,
Changing oneself? too difficult- not a game.
"Then new year is just the change of digits-
Then old and new year is THE SAME?"

WORD STREAM (18) GAMES,WE PLAY

GAMES,WE PLAY
******************

 Primitive game-we play,
Is the love- game,
Where start is, devotion,
And end is the same.

We play amid mass,
To claim the top,
The show goes on,
And we never stop.

We play with friends,
And equally with foes,
A life-long game-
The conflict of egos.

We play with a child,
To seek our past,
To probe the innocence-
We have lost.

We play with animals,
With pets; to boast-
Next to animal kingdom-
We are super most.”

We play with Nature,
The whistle we ignore,
That,foul game is fatal-
Knocking at our door.

Luck gives us an Ace,
But option is there,
Life is a single game,
Play foul or fair.

WORD STREAM (14) Cost of happiness

          COST OF HAPPINESS
*****************************






  






 I am glad to attend this party,
 It is in full swing, with merriment, 
  All are dancing and shouting,
Climax of hilarity is present.


People pretend to be happy,
The whole circle, as they seek,
They are happier in advance,
And become happiest, at the peak.


I feel all this is a magic,
Which is live- show, to perform,
All are acting till drop-scene,
To exhibit, the maximum charm.


My' happiness' be the top most,
If it lags; it is a curse,
This happiness is meaningless,
Unless, I compare it with others.


I pay for happiness, to buy the same,
Spending the money is no trouble,
If this happiness is a thousand deal,
The two thousands, may earn the double.


With the bundle of happiness, I come out,
It is raining, in the darkness of night,
A poor boy is dancing on the road,
Mud-clad, bare naked, shining bright,


His dance? no rhythm, no steps no sense,
He is playing with an old rustic flute,
 My happiness is with respect to others,
But his innocent happiness is absolute.

I spread my arms to acquire happiness,
As if-it is any technique,any magic,any art,
I wander here and there to find the same,
I forget- happiness lives in the core of heart.
