Happy New Year 2018

The New Year around the corner

And my thoughts rally aimlessly

Seeking a sanity lost in humanity

59 years of sifting through a life

In seeking a reason to continue

The lone walk in search of truth

where there’s none – as all claim

Or is it relative – truth to oneself

Love is truth? Free hippie love?

Or dirge of political correctness

A corporate market driven truth.


Art, a many layered compassion

for truth in all forms, my tool be.

To unravel truth in semblances

the fluidity of a mix and match

of brush strokes, colour, shade.

Raga, swaras, gamakas and tala

Nritta, abhinaya, jati and krithi

Lilt of lyric, music of intonation

A feel of reason, clarity of vision

Such in art’s splendour to settle

Immersed in bliss this poet poor

For the coming year and decade.

Happy New Year 2018, friends, readers. All my blessings for you.
