A – Z poetry : “Z” another one!

Zest for Zenith

Zonked by the constant struggle,

Zapped the sheer liveliness out of my soul

Zing is all I wanted to smuggle.

Zoomed the difficulties,

Zigzag was the discovery

Zodiac was but filled with immense oppotunities.

Zesty to reach the summit,

Zero tolerance to failure

Zealous spirit gets full credit.

Reach out for the stars,

Zoop is what life might appear

Zags will try to leave some scars.

Zonal could be our view,

Zillions of hurdles on the way

Zest for zenith should never turn blue.

Zeal

A – Z poetry : “Z”

A long awaited – Z !

Zindagi mein kya hai kami,
kyun hai aankhon mein ye nami,
zara sii khushi,
zara sii hasi,
zara saa pyaar,
zara sii takraar,
bhar de zindagi mein bahaar
(What scarcity do we have in life, why are our eyes tearful, a little happiness, a little laughter, a little love, a little tiff, fills life with colours of spring)

Zamane ki ye zanzeere,
todd ke udd chale
hum jeene apni zindagi,
iss zamane ko chod chale
(We break these chains of the world to fly away,
To live our life… we leave the world behind)

zaya yuhi na karo ye zindagi
zakhmo ko pyaar se bhardo
zamin se jude raho aur
zabardast udaan bharo
zahir karo apni pehchaan
Jee bhar ke Jee lo ye ek kimati zindagi.
(Do not just waste this life
Heal the wounds with love
Be in touch with the ground
and soar high above
Manifest your identity
Live this precious life to the fullest)

A – Z poetry : “Y”

Here we go… the second last alphabet.. “Y”

why

Y- Y is it so important!

Yellow is hot, is that all I know with Y I thought!

Yet, as I put myself to this task,

Yakking away, the best I could get to was

YATCH!

 

Yesteryear, Y had been easy-peazy!

Y- Since when did you become so snoopy!

 

Yogis have said – the key to success is hidden in the answer to all Ys!

Yet how many of us, have managed to go beyond try!

 

Y do you like this, and this not,

Y do u want to work at all?

Y do you think this is the only way out,

Y do you not want to try anything else out?

Y is the grass greener on the other side?

Y don’t you look at the brighter side!

Y is it so hard to give in?

Y don’t you realize lots u might be missing!

Y do we have to fight?

Y is hope the only good thing?

Y am I asking so many questions…?

 

Yogi said – only questions lead to answers and answers to success

Y do I want to be successful, again?

A – Z poetry : “X” – second entry!

I received a very one-of-a-kind entry for the alphabet we use not-so-often -> X

Dr Kate Maxwell, Postdoctoral Researcher in Multimodality and Cultural Change, University of Agder, Norway is the author/poet/creator of this. 

In her own words, “I’ve been working with graphics for a few years, but this is my first poem. I’ve had graphic compositions (music) published and performed. I was thinking about all the things I associated with the shape of the letter ‘x’ and it just kind of happened…”

Here is it… 

all about alphabet X, alphabet X

 

To know more about the graphic-y stuff she does, do drop by her blog. Alternatively, leave a response here!

A – Z poetry : “X”

Here is for alphabet “X”

ex

A Nexus Broken

When friends exchange their status

For lovers, their excitement

has no explanations

they meet in excess

are vexed by each others absence

find any pretext to call each other

words never exhaust their sweetness

their love simply extended from familiarity

and…

romance reaches its climax

the complexities of a relationship

misunderstandings express into anger

toxic looks now replace the earlier intoxication

and…

it all exploded into thin air

nothing left to examine

except the battle of the “ex”es

did their friendship once exist??

A – Z poetry : “W” (another entry)

World of My Own

Where the seas end in dying gasps,
where the sun splits into a whole half,
where the rain and soil they meet in glee,
is that from where it comes to me?

Where the end of sorrows is but a thought,
where a world of peace is now long lost,
where dark thoughts seep into deep deep depths,
is that from where it comes to me?

Where, into the deep caverns of the mountains of my heart,
where…will it lead me…I wonder…
Where now lies the hope within me…
poem…my poem…where life I see…

Where from do you come to me,
Where…through what…I beg to thee,
where is thy reside, thy long lost abode…
poem…my poem…where life I see…

my world

A – Z poetry : “W”

WoNdErInGs

I worry my world will change very soon

My world will change,

whether I worry or not…

The world is a wonder!

Will words always have their way?

Words will; but when silence wends a path

Words will wither away… in wonder!

Will you walk with me a while?

Just until where the waves

Weave their way into the wind… 

The wonder of words…

The world will wait

With willing silence.

VALKYRIES

 pic

Victory for those who  dies courageously,

Valuable are the souls who fought nobly,

Valhalla awaits the arrival of the brave ones,

Vanity is never a pleasure for the destined sons…

Vendetta brings on the verge every clan,

Velour clothed men die in valor,

Valley of Fjordane echoes with trots,

Valkyries arrive with a predestined notch!

Vanquishing every evil of the region,

Vanish the storming Valkyries in the verdure,

Versing a true form of Valiance,

Vignetting the history of Odin and his warriors! 

Written by the incredibly talented poetess Soumya! Must check out her blog and book…

A – Z poetry : “U”

One alphabet as a muse at a time. Here is “U”

until

UNTIL

Until the morning comes

Until the light shines

Until the touch of your hand

Until the smile on your face

Until the smell touches me

Until the day is over 

Until we are together

Until the end of time

Until you tell me goodbye

Until I understand

Until I see the light

Until you say I love you

Until the the morning light 

Until the setting sun

Until there is no hope

Until we are through

Until my life leaves me

Until my dying breath

Until I hear your voice 

Until you lay beside me

Until I feel your body

Until I find you

Until you seek the light

Until I find what I lost

Until I take a walk 

Until the world ends

Until the moon glows

Until all is lost

Until we are uplifted

Until we sing again

Until Heaven opens 

Until our dreams come true

Until I can see no more

Until we lay in our grave

Until we meet in heaven

Until that day you will see

Until all the words are spoken 

Until you hear my voice

Until I say I love you

Until I cry no more

Until you come back to me

Until that day comes

Until everything is said

Until you love me

Until you hold me

Until you are mine

Until the day you come back to me

Until we love again

Until there is an answer

Until my love never ends

Until the end of time

Until is never done

A – Z poetry : “T” – another one

let_life_happen

TUSSLES WITH LIFE!

Though we want to enjoy

Though we want to be carefree

Though we want to let it go

Though we want to let life happen

Tis’ we who are scared?

To take the plunge

To do what we want!

There are plenty who say it is a mind-game

There are equally plenty who play lame

Time, duties bound us they say,

Tremble they do, when life makes them its prey!

The question is to live life willed by our wont?

The question is to risk it all and be selfish?

The question is, “Are liabilities important?”

The answer is break free!

The answer is the chains that bind us are our own creations!

The answer is do not get lost, and let life happen!

let life happen
