fireflies and stars

Firefly twinkle and glows
Soft breeze in bamboo grove blows
The stars look down at them
Musing if earth is mirroring them

effects of headlines

If you really want to screw up your mood
Read the newspaper seriously
If you want to screw it further
Read and think a little about the news.

If you want to ruin the day and more
Think more seriously about it.
Now it’s done! Go ahead!
Spend the rest of the day brooding!

face to face

We disliked each other when we met face to face,
So you donned a mask to hide your face,
You befriended me, acting clever, funny, and coy
Cunningly hiding a distasteful ploy!

devil’s slave

Don’t try to claim you are God’s mortal keeper,
Your actions are more like devil’s slave
Spreading hatred, anger, pain,
Do you think everyone is naïve?

daffodils

The daffodils dance in joy,
Red poppies look sweet and coy,
Bees buzz here and there,
Announcing spring is here.

Mango pickles

China jars filled with mango pickle
Their yummy aroma will surely tickle
All your taste buds, your fantasy
Just one mouthful and you are in ecstasy.
