Colorful Jars

I have filled a part
Of our life, love and memory
In jars
Of assorted size and colours
And have hidden them somewhere
Safe.
A place my memory will soon obliterate.
And one day when we start to age
Our memories turn distant and fade
When things start looking bleak
We will then play the game of hide and seek
Where we’ll search for these sundry jars
Instead of looking for new
In one another.
Our disconnected hands and soul
Will find them and open
Pouring and spilling the lost fragrance
Of fond memories captured in former time
Aged through years like the fine wine
Reminding us of youth and our undeterred love
I hope the colorful jars capture us
In a sensational time warp.

Resurrecting the night

On dreamy nights –
When the dark sky
Illuminates
With twisted flashes
Tearing through the clouds,
When the thunder
Rumbles and echoes
Shattering the equanimity,
When the million droplets of rain
Knock at my window pane
Hazing and blurring the light outside,
I wish –
We would sit by the fire place
Together
Warmed under the same blanket
And talk, or, read to each other
Some stories
Of love, life and stormy nights
Or sing a lullaby
Until we sleep in the warm comfort of our caressing skin
Thus, creating
Yet another story, untold,
Waiting for moments like this to come
And resurrect the dreamy nights again.

You and Me

We have existed
for years’ unknown
in a faraway distant land
boundless and bizarre
silently, in love.
Like the sun that shines on the horizon
like the flower that blooms at dawn
like the bees searching for nectar
we have known
the truth behind our existence
that we need not show
Or prove
Or lament.
It is destined to be silently ours
preserved in scripts written with tender love
and the beauty of our magical union.
Yes, it is us,
strange beings in a stranger world
united in a perfect balance
like the thorns and the rose
for the eyes to see and
the minds to decipher
the unsung harmony.
I know we have been there for each other
Silently serving
As guardian, friend, valentine
And will do so forever
For our stars have aligned.
I know we exist
Because my heart believes
In something called ‘we’
And
In all the little and big things that comprise
Of Just you and me.
