Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

After long days of sweltering summer and pain

I see thee pour . Pour ! O gentle rain !

Thou awaken the dreamy leaves

Giving moments of respite and relief.

Birds fly back to their eyrie

After days long and weary.

I see men jump and dance

Embracing the calm , a state of trance

Men are happy and so are birds

Life is happy and so is nature

Blessed is the Earth and all its creature

In an aura of thy mystique perfume

Wettens the Earth , gets soft like a plume

The Earth is at peace and so am I

Wet I am after days hot and dry

Thy falling drops  quench my thirst

Making my soul crave and lust

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

Wash away all my heart’s pain

Cried I have , alone in my world

With tears unseen and sobs unheard

Thy drops today are some solace

When the world has left me lone

O heavens ! Thou art my secret companion

Bid thy clouds to pour more and more

To drench my soul and wipe my pain

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

Cry Of The Ganges

Cry Of The Ganges

O daughter of Gangotri ! , Ganges is thy name

Thou fondle the Himalayas and the plains

Nectar of Gods , thy water’s so pristine

Bringer of hope , O thou redeemer of sins !

In thy holy waters is found

The essence of our culture so profound

In thy waters pure and refined

Dwells the immortal spirit of divine.

O Ganges ! Doesn’t thy soul mourn

At the filth that’s in thy waters thrown?

Doesn’t thy heart shatter and tear

They call thee mother , yet can’t hear !

Heartless are they and they can’t hear

Canst they differ betwixt thy waters and tears?

Don’t they know who bathe to escape all sins

… -‘Adorning a mother’s eye with tears is the sinnest of sins!’

-Raashi Hasteer

When into thine eyes I look

When into thine eyes I look

Roses smell sweeter than ever

Stars in unison wink and shimmer

Leaves whisper a tranquil melody

Moon smiles like a bride demure and shy.

Kisses the breeze gentler than ever

A state of serenity , I wish it lasts forever.

For in thine alluring eyes I’ve seen

Glimpse of the surreal and the unseen

Looking into them is a feeling so deep

Like a castaway’s , when his kins he meets

My heart pounds in leaps and bounds

Neither am I lost nor am I found

Carried gently into the realms of another world

A place of bliss like the heavens above !

-Raashi Hasteer

In the heart of nature , he lives within.

In the heart of nature , he lives within

He’s  leaving the Earth

All the pain , All the mirth

Someday he may not recall

Of the days he felt ecstasy with all

The days that made him cry and fret

Times when he was content with life

Times when each moment was a painful strife

He may no longer remember

Nights blessed with peaceful slumber

Or the nights  spent in endless tears

Times when he enjoyed like a free child

Times when no reasons of bliss he could find

Days he lend a hand for the ones who  sail

Or the days when others helped him sail

Across the ocean of life !

He may no longer remember a thing…

O nature ! Wilst thou also forget his being?

‘ The Sun shall continue to smile…

The Moon will go on in her journey of miles

The stars shall continue to glisten

Birds shall sing and men shall listen

Flowers shall bloom and leaves shall rustle

Men will live in their hustle and bustle

…But

My son , I shall never forget his being

He’ll stay alive in forms

Unheard and unseen

Lulled by the breeze

Kissed by the rain…

…For his body of dust will go back therein

An element of nature in nature shall remain

Always caressed , Always within ‘

-Raashi Hasteer

Beautiful Chaos

Beautiful Chaos

I build these walls to safeguard my heart

For it pains to see people come and depart

Stubborn yet fragile they stand tall

Waiting to melt at your one single call…

Break those walls and enter into my heart

Live there forever and never do part

For you’re my sweetheart Adonis

The one I so fervently miss

To you I love , O my Eros

My heart is engulfed in a beautiful chaos.

-Raashi Hasteer

Entwined till eternity

PicsArt_1428008428940

Entwined till eternity

Beneath the starlit sky

Hand in hand , sat my love and I

Soft roving breeze kissing his hair

Gently ,  the way our mother’s care…

Turning his face partly toward mine

I could see on his face a charming smile

‘ Tell me O my sweetheart , my love ‘.

‘What do I mean to thee? ‘

‘How deep is thy love for me ?’, asked he.

‘Look into mine eyes  and see therein

Thou shalt see an ocean of love within

As you plunge into the waters deep

Thou shalt see my heart that beats

…For then all voices silence themselves

My heart to your heart shall say

And with every tune of our hearts beating in harmony

…..Our souls shall be entwined forever till eternity !’

-Raashi Hasteer
