The Sky

 

So many world views

 

Produce such great tributes

 

Man yearns for sights

 

At least once before he dies

 

They are all exquisite

 

Stand tall in their might

 

But simply nothing can side

 

The beautiful sky

 

 

 

Man builds high buildings

 

He climbs mountain peaks

 

Constructs vast mansions

 

Stands back and proudly sees

 

What he does not realize

 

Is the fact that he chases

 

Heights and mountains

 

For closeness to the sky

 

 

 

The sea shows a panorama

 

The jungle shows a collage

 

The mountain shows a vantage

 

The fire seems to dance

 

All under and towards the sky

 

 

 

Wars are waged

 

And victories celebrated

 

Humans put on show

 

Their incredible morals at play

 

Histories are produced

 

And evolution transforms life

 

There stands a witness so robust and high

 

The ultimate sky, the bearing sky

 

 

 

It could be the endlessness

 

It could be the domain

 

It could be the infinity

 

Of what the open can seize

 

Man has always been prone

 

To curiosity of the unknown

 

The canopy appeals to him

 

For what lies above his own

 

The relentless sky

 

 

 

The look of the exotic

 

Makes all men sigh

 

But the eyes get tired

 

And the pleasure eventually dies

 

What always remains Is the sigh of relief

 

The painful heave The burst of grief

 

When man breaks down

 

Under the open sky

 

 

 

Maybe that’s why God promised

 

A life after death

 

To fulfill the craving

 

To put the human soul at rest

 

To finally let them

 

Fly beyond the sky

IR

           THE SOLDIER’S WIFE

She feels the tips of his fingers slipping away

And savors his sight as he leaves

A pang of sorrow grips her heart

But she has to encounter the grief

Patience and belief are now a part of her life

She is, after all, a soldier’s wife

 

As she goes about the days

A month has passed

She recalls when she felt him and heard him last

“I love you”, he said and embraced her tight

Then he set out to fulfill a nation’s right

It is this security that she longs to bribe

She is, after all, a soldier’s wife

 

The trees change shades and the weather changes form

365 days have passed all along

As she looks in the mirror her hair has grown long

He used to play with them and sing merry songs

The fear has drained away and the worry has worn

She knows he may never come back how worst can it be

She would spend her life smiling with pride

She was, after all, a soldier’s wife

 

The doorbell rings and she stirs awake

She has stopped counting days and lives for God’s sake

Something in her heart makes her guilty of hope

She waives it off and runs to get the door

The sight on the other side strikes her dumb

He touches her hand but they have gone numb

She treats him like a dream which has gone extreme

She thinks this is so and tries to move away

He brings her closer and she hears him breathe

For a moment she dares to think he is real

It is then his voice which brings her back to life

She is, after all, a soldier’s wife
