A Boy’s Sanctuary

A butterfly fluttered over the mountain stream Where a graceful deer quenched its thirst The mountain stream held age-old memories Of humans and animals it relentlessly nursed. A boy sat under an orange Gulmohar Admiring the spectacle right before him After listening to the songs of birds for hours so long He dived into the... Continue Reading →

My Lost Kingdom

A shimmering light has approached this shore Originating from my native land A territory very far from here Was swept away from my wealthy hand.I am the lost King who ruled the kingdom That you see a hundred miles away I had the love of my people and for them I laid down democratic and...
