Life Saving Rain

Life Saving Rain

Life saving rain, drops splattering about
Indians in drought sought it with a dance.
Falling on tin roof, water from a spout
Every dripping hymn, giving sleeping trance.

Saving crops, the farmers to it give prayers
And seeds awaiting blooming sweet relief.
Vast seas depending upon rain's showers
Inca priests killed for it, in deep belief.

Now we know, rain often heavenly sent
God washes this flower garden he built.
Rain renews, as its dear gifts are soil-spent 
And we blithely pollute it with no guilt.

Indians honored their rain-god with glee
Not ignoring that gift, like you and me!

Love of the Ocean

Lingering waves surge into the shore.
Ominous glory, it rages for a score.
Vivacious peaks beautify its core.
Each one different, then the one before,

Once you have seen the power it holds.
From then on, the greatness unfolds.

Terrifyingly beauty raptures your mind.
Hearing its sounds enthralls us to find.
Earnest thoughts we once left behind.

Oceans beauty is spellbinding at dusk.
Creating fresh aroma, sometimes musk,
Every day delivering, treasures of mollusk.
After a day at the ocean, you may enjoy cusk.
Not one person denies the beauty so brusk.

S ymphony of the waves in motion,
P erpetual melodious swaying ocean
E levates one's soul to take part
C apturing the pure romantic heart
T o relax near the beach or bay
A tuned to the ions in misty spray.
C leave to the precious one you love
U plifted by the divine spirit above.
L iving with Mother Nature in harmony
A ppreciating her gifts that are free;
R ealising the best blessing is family.

My motherland, the land of four colors, the land of sweetness As is described by its rich history, filled with wars and battles United it stands today, giving freedom to each and every son of its soil Revered as the land of the sun, sea and sand, the beaches, the golden skin It is where was found the lost Dodo, killed till its last by those hungry colonizers The land where I took birth, the land I admire, the land away from which I shall not survive Imagination pours strongly in every corner of this island, be it in songs or in poetry Unmistakably the jewel of all the Indian Ocean Sweet is its fragrance, sweet is its beauty, my homeland it is! A small retreat surrounded by the blue lagoon Loved by all those who upon seeing its nature, do swoon!

Beneath a veneer of  sapphire waves,
Rays of sunshine make fingers of light,
Ethereal, over crusty,  pink coral forms.
Atolls that rise from stark white sand, create
Tunnels for twining eels and twinkling starfish
Hues of rainbow anemones  mingle with
Tangerine flowers, resplendent along
Avenues of pelagic growth, draping over
Knolls of time worn stones, mirrored 
In sunken remnants of marble ruins.
Now, at day's end an orange sunset 
Glows with long beams to reveal a lost Atlantis.

Spacious, glistening as far as straining sight can wander,
Playful waves reflect the light in joyous, rippling prance,
Effervescing the myriad, resplendent sherbet-sky
Colors in flashing pirouettes, a ballerina dance.
Tides wash in and, weeping, withdraw from sentinel shores,
Aching, yearning for each returning, salt-cleansing spray,
Cresting upon warm sweeps of widely welcoming sand,
Undulating sound like the rosaries lonely nuns pray.
Layers of foaming laughter dissolve, then mount in raucous cries,
Arcing across the mighty oceans of this planet,
Rustling, swaying branches or mighty, charging samurais.

Lovers Point, LP Revisited


I'd watch the waters of the bay
mingle with the rocks and sand.
Failing stars misted in gray
Again fail to illuminate that strand.
Lovers Point won't understand.
Lonely people seem to like it there.
I watched them all as they passed by--
Nodding to my equals there,
Gentle ones who came to tearless cry...
For what? Only the rocks know why.
One night I left that lonesome band;
Reaching out to you I touched love's flame.
You held me close and took my hand.
Once 'twas a lonely place of pain,
Until you gave Lover's Point back it's name.


I stood above the misty shore,
My time was short as it was late,
And watched the reflections once more--
lover's Points nocturnal state--
Our meeting place of misread fate.
Nice it was when we were there,
Except there's no more 'you and I'.
Only a memory of a brief affair,
Not lasting long as it went awry.
Cold and dark: Lover's Point's sky.
Every so often it seems to me
My life is like the waves off the shore:
One special person comes near to me,
Retreats again, is then no more.
Even the Point knows not what for.

Sun warmed the noon air, as
Umbrellas gave a shade to girls in bikinis.
Marvel of nature was visible with ocean waves
Made, as they moved with vigor. 
Everyone around the scene had something worth
Remembering, for the rest of their lives!

Polyphagia on board

Polyphagia on board is forbidden and not welcome ---------- when 
Everybody knows that should we ran out of food ---------- crickets 
Probably will not feed us anyhow and most of us will ---------- cry 
Pensive about victuals whilst starving madly. No ---------- seamen
Ever should go through famine. That's why we must ---------- stop 
Relapsing into gluttony in this ship. I approve of ---------- yodeling.

Pepper spray is going to be one of the ---------- calamities 
Any glutton will endure as a punishment. Thus, ---------- every 
Real seafarer will chant these words now: ---------- "Bearded 
Captain wants no fressing within his ship! Yes, ---------- captain!
Every single gob will ration the food. Frugality is a ---------- must!
Lashes and pepper spray those who fail shall ---------- undergo!"

L ucency of the amber sun, languidly emerging beyond pearlescent 
O ceans: omnipotent orb officiates an original new dawn, bringing
V itality and a spectrum of colour beneath sapphire skies.
E arth’s eloquent existence exhilarates her endless array of inhabitants, with a
L uxuriance of vital evergreens, lending immediate nourishment: efficient, stealthy, surreal. 
I  mbecilic though humans can be, they aren’t devoid of their own wonder and charm,                                                                                   
N ever-ceasing in their quest for excellence. Such affinity for love, honour, and family, they hold,  
E ven death adds to their beauty, ebbing away to the earth's lustrous lakes, to once again flourish,
S urrepticiously sleeping under starlit skies. The opalescence of the universe enlightens
S tupendously, filling a poet with wanderlust, and writing of this world’s bountiful loveliness.

Let us leave 
Our home behind.
Venture out in
Evening's clement
Light, here in
Ireland's rugged 
North western
Edge, along the
Sea shore where
Seagulls soar.

Inhaling The Sea

Inhaling The Sea

I  found her walking the sandy shoreline.
N othing on , naked and she was so fine
H eaven must have dropped this angel down
A s I felt the sea wrap us in a soft gown.
L ove seared us together, never to ever part
I heard this vision whisper into my heart.
N ever my love , never send my love away
G iving in to the sweetest taste of her play.
T he sea sent aroma of its love flavor to me
H er smiles soon brought out this sweet plea. 
E chantress please stay and marry this man
S he agreed if we both became loving sea fans.
E ach morn walking there to face the rising sun
A vow to walk very slowly, enjoy life, never run.

The tanker's Final Journey

Ominous clouds cluster on the horizon,
Immense waves smash over the deck,
Lashing! Crashing!  Punishing!  Pounding!
Screeching metal as the hull bursts open,
Pouring its jet black cargo
Into the frothing, raging ocean.
Lightning flashes, illuminates a tragedy;
Liquid death spills from its broken heart.
