Give Love Some Room


Give love some room

Give each other space and let it bloom

Respect for the other is the trick

Build up love brick by brick.


Throw out scorn out of the door.

Let friendship be the score.

Little thoughts and deeds

Looking after each other’s needs.


Give love some room.

Be there for each other and see it zoom.

Grow together and support

Kindness adds to love’s report


Throw out impatience out of the door.

Pursue different passions, don’t be a bore.

Love grows with age, it never ends.

Always, always be a good friend.


A Different Kind Of Love


A mushy look in the eye,

Eating out of my hand.

Total trust on me.

When did I start loving this creature?

Kissing his green soft head.

Stroking his soft feathers.

He, pecking me with his red beak.

Rolling his eyes with happiness,

When I give him a walnut to eat.

Greeting me every time he meets me.

Gurgling with joy when he gets a buttered toast.

Screeching for attention at times.

Talking nineteen to the dozen sometimes.

Gradually the little avian becoming a human.

Screaming and squawking away.

In a different kind of love my heart sways.


Mumbai Monsoon


At a swish of the wand of the Rain God.

The clouds burst open, and rains come down.

The misty look all around.

Pitter patter, the rain sound.


The green trees get greener

The leaves dance in the rain.

The rain falls in sheets

The scorched earth it meets.


The winds blow and some flowers drop off

Some white fragrant Champas floating in the pond.

The birds taking shelter in the trees.

The flowers giving shelter to the bees.


The streets are wet and shiny.

The car lights are hazy in the rain.

The Mumbai Monsoon is here to stay.

Washing the dirt and heat away.
