April Challenge Day 30 - Bless Me My Lord

I really want to talk to you,
But I know not what to say
What am I without your grace?
Just a leafless tree, without a trace

You my unlimited strength
There is no one in my life but you
Lonely was I in this world
Lost in this deserted land

Broken were my dreams
Too long a road it seemed
I thought of you only in pain
I thank you for your grace

Let me hold your hand
Guide me through torturous land
Things can change in an instant
Only you know why, when where

You my unlimited strength
What could I do without you
Lonely was I in this world
I thank you for your grace

April Challenge Day 29 Dear Sir With Love

It may

An expat came visiting me
Clicked he not pictures of me
Instead he went touring my city
Clicking garbage and sewage obscene
He says,
“India is the dirtiest city he has ever seen
Don’t you have enough funds to keep it clean?”

I sweep my eyes over
Not too extraordinary for me
Not the stink
Nor the filth
This is very normal 
I think

Ground is painted artistically red
With Paan stains that my countrymen spat
Browned are the walls with urine and mess
Trees on the road are dusty, never fresh
To discard a paper
No bin for miles on street
It is slippery to use Public toilets
Too much water overflow from sink

Wild pigs, dogs, mountain goats,
And sometimes even cows,
They always sit in the middle of busy road,
Chewing on a cud, relaxed
Expat says,
“Why you Indian are vegetarians?
Why do your people starve?
Catch those fearless
Animals on streets and
Cook them for your lunch

Is there something I could do?
Change habits of my countrymen
If only I could
Give me some solution
My city is no zoo

Give me a clean city
Let me breathe fresh air too
Use our tax money wisely
Show me that you care

April challenge Day 28 - Power Chair

Said a chair 
To another chair
Move, here comes
Another big butt
With fast glue 
He be 
Stuck to us
For full five year term

April Challenge Day 27 - Cobra

Like ghost in city
In the middle of the road
Cobra screamed “Hello”

Villagers fainted
Cobra looked lost and confused
Hissed "I want some milk"

Milk bottles arrived
Facebook status updated
Three face cobra smiled

April Challenge Day 26 - Sound Poem

Swish swish swish swish swishing
Sway sway sway sway sway-a-way
Shoo shoo shoo shoo shooing
On hills the winds blows all day

Tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet-a-tweet
cooo cooo cooo cooo coo-ree cooo
Peck peck peck peck peck-a-peck
On hills the birds will sing too

Tap tap tap tap tap-a-tap
Zoo zoo zoo zoo zoo ree-a-zoo
Rap rap rap rap rap-a-rap
Dried leaves with breeze will fly too

Drip drip drip drip drip-a-drop
Drop drop drop drop drop-a-drop
Croak croak croak croak-a-croak
Lets run before a frog hops
