happiness awaits you, the paradox

my 'happiness' is fleeing away
but happiness awaits me
i wonder how! 

when surrounded by the fragrance of your presence
blessed is how i feel.
when i see your smile everytime i touch the eyelids
a smile-back is what i respond with 
but when the eyelids part
misty-eyes is what i find.
i try to cover up the mist 
with the smiles you bestowed upon me
but then my heart becomes misty 
the heart starts pumping tears.
.........................................................................................
........................................................................................
well if happiness awaits me
i shall wait for my 'happiness' as long as it takes.

let it blossom


you are like the gentle breeze 
that Seduces the leaves 
caressing my imperfections
soothing the agOnies 
carrying me to the abodes of angels 
I would like to stay there forever

your smiles are eNgraved in my memories 
your memories are chiseled in my heart
for the heArt yearns to keep the wounds afresh 
Strange it is to know 
that fallen you are into the abyss of love 
that wounded you are though
you fondly nurture the pain
hoping that the wounds would blossoM
 
let it blossom 
let its magnificent fragrance pervade all the impediments.
let it blossom.

seize

happiness is all around

look to your left, -happiness 
look within, -happiness
look with your eyes closed, -happiness
look even without looking, -happiness

i paint the canvas of my life with sorrow 
the canvas was pure, unadulterated
why did i draw only 'sorrow' ?
when drawing 'happiness' was also an option ?
perhaps because out of mud blooms lotus 

at times i feel
----empty endurance leading me to the land of nowhere
but then who cares? when the pain i endure is a pleasure in disguise 

happiness is ephemeral, sorrow is forever 
happiness is subdued by the thirst for more happiness
while sorrow endures and pervades our life 

hey everyone of you!
seize the happiness, freeze the time 
live happily forever, 
so much happily that even 'forever' be just a blink of an eye.
seize infinite happiness,
live infinitely happy,
in the infinite space of joy ,
until the infinity of time. 

Amen! 

Tolstoy said--- "happiness is an allegory, unhappiness is a story"
