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

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

Black Diary

( This poem is related to the diary of my maternal grandfather whom I lost years back ! Though he isn’t there but his memories still remind me of his presence in my heart . )

Black Diary

I picked up thy diary

Thy name inscribed therein

On black cover , silver ink !

With each page that I flipped

In memories of thee I was gripped.

With mine eyes teary

I closed thy diary

Thinking about the scars

On the last page I saw a star

On black cover ,silver ink !

I looked up at the sky

As if to question why

Ah! Once again black sky silver stars

I was reminded of that star

And the unlimited scars!!
