Sunrays baby-hugging the long path,
Known direction,
Approaching destination ....
I have a yearning for such path
And ....
I want to enjoy the journey!

Chance ..... Choice!

Chance .... Choice!

It was a great chance that
When we said 'I Love You' ....
It was a full moon night.

It was a chance that
I was weeping over the perils of our relationship;
You sleeping next to me ...
It was a yet another full moon night.

Why blame the chance?
When we made a choice to commit love, weep and ignore ...
on a full moon night!

You & Me!

You hate me, not because ...
You don't like me!
But because you know, that
I don't like your ways of living.

You crush me, not because ...
You have power!
But because you know,
I have none.

You ruin me not because ...
You have resources and
I want them from you;

But because ...
I have the resources and
You want them away from me!

Its a usual fight,
Between the unequals ...

Try bend me not!
I would rather fight to break!

And I know that ...
You break ... To fight.

Bergman's Wild Strawberries!

Bergman's Wild Strawberries!

Swinging back & forth in time,
With the clock ....

My friend saw the bright Sun in the sky at night.
.... As we came out of the cinema hall

And I can't decide - even now ....
Was it the bright Sun in the night?
Or a yellow Moon on a full moon night?

Swinging back and forth
.... in the wilderness of our mind!
