Musical chord


The carnatic music once played
is now confined to the CD inside the drawer
The guitar that rocked the stage is hung on the wall
The notes that were written have turned pale yellow
The voice that crooned has hit a low tune
All thanks to tech wave that flooded everyone with its magnetic currents
I hope musical instruments, singers, music does not become scarce species

Careless whispers


Careless whispers inside my heart, 
a part of my soul breathes in his name.

resonating my love aloud
Heart beats play to the notes that were written in the rain

Crossing rules

The tyres screeched 
near the zebra crossing
together with honking and screams
for a lazy little lad 
danced slowly on his way
listening to music on  his  earphones
pausing life on street.

Raaga



He plays the tanpura tuning the chords 
during this pleasant afternoon 
as the warmth sits on the carpet
he voices a old classic tale along with it 
moving the ambiance to the historic era
the lifeless sages, courtesans come alive 
as the rhythms wake them from their sleep
he ferries us  through the royal banquet
the battle and the courtyard 
with his verses in the symphony of the dynasty

Breakfree

I am listening to my heart now
who tells me that he wants a break
wishing to detach himself from the world
and attach to some fun, some liveliness
shake and dance away
feast on yummy cuisines
So, here we are  together jamming together
crooning and twirling our hips
ignoring the tick- tocks of the clock
absorbed in bliss of joy beyond reasons
laughing unawares 
in absolute serenity
feeling wealthier in smiles
chilling like no other
Hey you, wanna come and join us?
