The returned rib...

Then the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him."
but for the man there was not found a helper fit for him
Then the man said, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."
 Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh

And so... the rib was dutifully returned, after a week-long stay in the mother’s place..So, God still ?loves me.. because it was he who told  the above words..he he..
And I had  to pick up clothes, papers, pen caps, coffee mugs... and stash them in a jiffy..before the bone of my bone got down from the car...
 All the while  I was at the service of various hotels of our place.. somber, alone, and irregular..Tonight too dinner in a hotel..but along with my helper...No jealousy put in proper tamil phrase.. it was my  tongue died period..( naakku seththu pochu).. Dont think otherwise...
May be we can top it up with a movie.. Only problem is I don't watch Pirates of carribean and she doesn't watch Azhagarsamiyin kuthirai..its ok we can watch nigella feasts together..
God, from which rib did you re-make??

I knew...

A poem by hope inspired me to write this...

I knew , you went covering your face
The long road ahead, I stopped to glance..
I knew , you kept secrets from me..
‘cos  i would cringe, for you and me..

I know, you placed in ‘nother mighty hand
And plead to stay, and care and tend..
I know I blamed,i wriggled and  am mute
For my life was dear, and i cried at the fate

I know, the road, had parted ways
My life,you were gone, the same both ways
I know, I live and am never dead or insane
For the life He has given is to live and to gain...

thanks hope..

Once again...

Of what use
Is my prayers
When my heart is devoid of

You are the almighty
I am a mere speck
Would  you lower yourself
To listen to my words?

 I crouched holding
An umbrella in the desert
The night  too  passed
 for another day to come..

I never held your hands
But allowed myself
In your embrace..
My hands now press
my empty shoulders..

How could   I say
that you forsake me?
You  did give the words,
Their  meanings  and their wings..

Would you fall
In love again?
For  I am weary of  this useless
Chants  and murmurings
And my heart beats for
A longing love and tears..

How I wish..

They leave marks which dissappear soon

Those waves, with  their edges ,white with foam..

They stay, they play,  they  recede to return.

They erase  whatever  you wrote, dear son..

These lessons, we learn though ,even as we grow

But refuse to write ‘nother word and show

That life is all play, loss and gain

We stay, sinking down, as man and woman

How I wish, that  I stayed  at your age...

Learning little things, to forget in this stage.....

Feigning worthiness...

I can’t recollect my past..
When my soul has walked many forms
I’m ignorant of my future...
And my worthiness to face you
But God, Am I happy at present?
'cos I hurry to slowdown, and slothful for my wants..
I taste and shun, I play and regret
I seek you and move away
I think I’m awake when I am asleep
And close  my eyes shut tight
Thinking that I am in deep sleep..
Sheepishly admit that I try fooling you
Like  the  cattle straying away far into the woods
lingering thoughts that you would follow me..
till the end....
somehow I am reminded of a photo and a comment...

I forgot my face dear lord,
for I've lost this innocence and smile.
Truthful with secrets cornered,
friendly with malice covered,
Pious, yet dripping venom.
whence you shall pull out my mask,
 I wouldn't resent, but silently submit
covering my face and pleading mercy

(There was a temple going spree in our family... and crowded they were in this vacation season..that I felt nothing in front of the sanctum.. any ways  I enjoyed staying with all family..)

Learn to smile...

Moments of grey, over the crown
Stays a while making you pine
Learn to smile, never to frown
Tis his way to let you shine..

Think of times, past some years
When your heart shed lonely tears
Staggering shadows, now so timid
seal the distress with some grit..

Times may come and times may go
His sword strikes to let you bow
Powerless, though we, picking  his hem
Pleading for better times to come...

ಆಕಾಶ ದೀಪವು ನೀನು.. You are the light of my sky..

I woke up on this sunday evening with this song in my heart. Somehow it kept on ringing. Such melodious music. The last time I listened to this song  was in my undergraduate days some 15 years back. Never knew who the actors were, the lyricist and  the music director.. but the song is one of the best of  its kind..Now with google search and you tube, I thought I can never miss on anything..

I am giving the link below for this song...

there is a sad version of this song too...but I loved this one.. the first stanza.. of course I was singing this song to wake up my son too..I would have listened to some 15 times today.. to the you tube version..I pulled a chair for my wife to listen, and translating the lyrics in tamil.. she was wondering why I suddenly became crazy  about  a kannada song..

I tried translating this  kannada song  though with some difficulty..

You are the light of my sky.
Why does my soul leap, on seeing you , with joy?
Your  enchanting looks captivates  my heart..
Why does it pain, when you are out of my sight?

On the day when i saw you first
My heart leapt, my soul blossomed
Overwhelmed and happy I became
The day when You tuned the harp of my heart,

When the love did happen,
A garland of desires followed
Proudly worn by my heart
But unto the surrender of my life..
When you do become my partner
I ‘m saved , my dear, I am saved..

I  am uploading  a comment for this song in the site... that explains why this song becomes so lovable...
you know what gaanasudhe., if i ever go mad, then you would solely be responsible for it. coz of all these years and years of longing & searching for this video, why the hell did i happen to chance upon this clip today only? :'( today of all these days huh!?? it is just so befitting right now....
