Feet on the Ground for SL-Week

As oddly as it may sound
I am quite profound
My feet firmly on the ground
Now that I have found
My shiny red shoes!

Dark Glasses

Can’t stand the flashes
Oh paparazzi be cursed
Because,
I am forced
To wear these dark glasses
Before,
My fifteen minutes of fame
Passes

Rear-view Mirror

Trying to act casual
Trying to act cool
After all,
There is nothing unusual
And nothing, like a fool
Than, in the middle of traffic
Stopping midway
For a quick snap it
After all
This is what all
Self conscious hip people
Do these days!
So snap, snap, snap away
A selfie in progress

Happy Birthday Nephew! for SL-Week 51

“Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear Jim
Happy birthday to you.”

The Birthday Boy

“Dig into the cake son”
The father urged
His head turned
As the birthday boy
Was about to enjoy
The much deserved treat
Which was definitely not meat
But a juicy summer’s strawberry tart
Made by mom, straight from the heart

The Cake

The aroma of the strawberry cake
We all knew, that was not a fake
It was all done for the sake
Of the birthday celebration on this date

Would it be easier
If the world was black and white?
Would it be easier
To distinguish wrong from right?
Instead of fight
Choosing flight?
What if…
Never mind!
It only vintage in my own mind

Ride on a Train

Join me on a joyride
Travelling world wide
Without a tour guide
Learning all with pride
On this vintage train
The trip made not in vane
But much more to gain
Than just driving on the lane

Bombs Away!

It was nineteen and forty-five
The world, in a deep dive
Trying very hard to survive
And we did, so for that
A high five!

Silhouettes for SL-Week

Decrypted

“Truth is like silhouette, it keeps appearing along with light, it can’t be camouflaged for ever.” Chandrababu V.S.

Dog Decrypted

“Right” said Fred
As the dog he fed
Sighting the alphabet
Landing in letter zed

“Let’s follow this thread”
He pointed at the wire red
But the thread, turned to infrared
Soon enough, they were all encrypted

The dog, as they had dread
Was the master instead
Stood there shaking its head:
“They should have all stayed in bed”
