PLEASE SEE WHAT THE RUSSIANS HAD TO SAY ON THE NEW YEAR
December 31, 2007
A New Year Address to the Nation.
Dear fellow citizens of Russia, Dear friends,
Today I would like to say something special to you. As we see off the outgoing year, I want to sincerely thank you for everything that we have done together with you during the past eight years.
All that we have managed to achieve would have been simply impossible without your steadfast support, without your trust, without your direct participation in the revival of our country.
We have not only restored the territorial integrity of Russia. But once again we are able to feel we are a united people. And all these years we worked together to preserve our country, to transform it into a modern, free, strong state able to provide its citizens with a convenient and comfortable life.
We have seen how, from year to year, Russia has been gaining in strength and becoming stronger. How our economy has been growing. How new opportunities have been opening up for the people.
To be sure, we have not managed to do everything. But I am quite certain that the road the people have chosen for Russia is the right road and that it will lead us to success. We have everything to achieve our goal – our great history, colossal resources, courage, industriousness and intellectual potential of our great nation.
In a few minutes, we shall usher in the New Year. This is a holiday filled with love for our dear ones, with the warmth of our homes. A holiday of hope and belief that everything will turn out the way we want it to turn out. That our life will become better. That our children will be happy. That our elderly people will be healthy and safe. That our country will become stronger and blossom.
So let us wish each other new achievements. And, of course, we shall raise our glasses to the health and happiness of our near and dear, to those whom we value and cherish more than anything else in the world. To whom we give the warmth of our hearts and with whom we want to be together.
So may your most cherished dreams come true! Be happy, dear friends!
I wish you all the best for the New Year!

Presidential Message: Easter 2007
Laura and I send greetings to all those celebrating the glorious Easter holiday.
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most important event of the Christian faith. Easter morning holds wonder and promise, and it is a chance for people everywhere to gather with family and friends to celebrate the power of love conquering death. In this season of renewal, we can rejoice in Christ's rising, draw strength and inspiration from His example, and remember that in the end, even death itself will be defeated.
This Easter we pray for all our men and women in uniform and for the military families whose loved ones are deployed on important missions in distant lands. We remember especially those who have given their lives in freedom's cause.
On this powerful day, let us join together and give thanks to the Almighty for the glory of His grace.
Happy Easter, and may God bless you.

The Year of the Family aims to revive family values in Russia.
Speaking at the ceremony, President Vladimir Putin addressed his greetings to parents of large families, young families and senior citizens.
Mr Putin said that laying the foundations for a strong family requires immense daily effort, hard work, patience and responsibility. The Year of the Family should make a vital contribution to reviving a responsible and respectful attitude towards family values, the President said.
Earlier, Mr Putin declared 2008 the Year of the Family in Russia. A decree to this effect was signed in June 2007.

The Zikri Baluch are an offshoot of mainstream Islam that is concentrated in the Baluchistan Province of Pakistan. There are about 750,000 adherents in this group. Most Zikris live in Baluchistan, but a large number also live in the region around Karachi and Iran. A high percentage of Zikris are involved in fishing, mainly along the coast of the Arabian Sea. Some are also involved in farming, basket weaving and making other hand crafted items.
Muslim But Different
Their practices are based around the teachings of Syed Mohammad Jaunpuri, a 15th century and South Asian Islamic Messiah figure (Mahdi). In religious practice, the Zikris differ greatly from mainstream Muslims. Zikris perform five daily prayer rituals called Zikr in which sacred verses are recited which differ from orthodox Islamic prayer. Zikris do pilgrimage to their most famous shrine at Koh-e-Murad, near the city of Turbat in Baluchistan, on the twenty seventh night of Ramadan. “Koh” means “mountain”, and “Murad” is a name, meaning “aim”or “desire”. It has been reported that the Zikris perform rites similar to a traditional Hajj when on pilgrimage to the shrine.
The name Zikri comes from the Arabic word dhikr (pronounced “Zikr” in South Asia) that refers to remembrance, usually of Allah. This is reflective of the Zikri worship, focused on the recitation of Islamic credos. The movement of Syed Jaunpuri started as a reaction to the worldly pursuits of the Muslim elite. Zikris have faced persecution mainly from Sunni Muslims, but this usually has occurred in areas where they are in a minority, or in conflict with non-Zikri power groups. The Zikri came to Baluchistan seeking safety, and in their isolation, they deviated from the Muslim majority practices.
The Future Question
It is probable that many other influences will come into the lives of the Zikri in the coming years. The Pakistani and Chinese governments have been deeply involved in developing the Gwadar deep-sea port which is being linked to the rest of Pakistan, to China and to Central Asia through a system of roads and pipelines. Gwadar’s population is about 50% Zikri. If the forecasted economic development based on the port actually takes place all of Baluchistan and the region will be significantly affected.
It has been reported by a couple of fishermen that Jesus appeared to them in a storm and rescued them while on a fishing trip. Pray that many more Zikri fishermen would truly encounter Jesus, and become real fishers of men!
Prayer Requests for the Zikri Baluch:
* In recent years a number of Zikris who have become followers of Jesus. Pray for growth in the ways of God (faith, hope and love) for all of these new believers (1 Cor 13).
* Pray also that these new believers would make known their faith among their family and friends, and that whole families and clans would become followers of Jesus.
* Pray that the top religious leaders of the Zikris would come to know Jesus, through the Scriptures, testimonies, films, dreams, visions, healings, etc., so that their followers would also embrace the Truth.

That Deadly Bolt from the Blue
Seven years ago it made big bold screaming headlines; today those headlines are relegated to the back files of newspapers. That is what time does to tragedy.
Seven years ago a cool but vigorous breeze blew down the streets of
North Delhi. And became, suddenly, a furious sound that burst upon us. Flames sprouted from an electricity pole at the Maurice Nagar crossing and we began to sprint for shelter as the transformation from cool and lovely to cool and deadly became complete. Today fear and bewilderment mark the memories of those terrifying minutes.
We had crouched in a college corridor as the ill wind swept past us. Caught in the backlash of a flippant generation, we had, even then as we crouched, begun to wonder - a la Snoopy - whether it was a bird, a place or what. Only to discover later that it had been a tornado. It had seemed a vicious magic device unleashed by an angry god. Striking down a narrow, unfortunate path, the storm had left huge trees uprooted, walls flattened, buses overturned, and many people dead.
There was a tossed-up statue, a murderous labyrinth of power lines, and a strange, almost unholy calm.
It lasted barely a few minutes. First, it attacked the senses as it came hurtling down with a flash from Shakti Nagar towards Maurice Nagar. Then, it attacked the body as it began to suck up everything in its way into its gigantic self. And, finally, it sped off losing its force gradually and emptying its bowls along the way.

People who saw it from afar remember it today as a very beautiful cloud, but the weatherman it was who analyzed the vicious face of this funnel-shaped fury. Even as people hunted for a name to describe this phenomenon, scientists at the Meteorological Department pointed out that a tornado was a bit of a mystery, even to them.
It was not the same thing as a cyclone, they said. A cyclone has a diameter of at least 100 km and lasts several days. A tornado is rarely over a kilometer in diameter and lasts only a few moments. A rare happening was a tornado in the
which lasted over seven hours. USA
Take a thunderstorm and add to it a combination of thermal and mechanical forces and you will get the ménage a trois of nature that goes by the name of tornado.
Winds rotating at a high speed usually in an anticlockwise direction form a whirlpool structure. A semi-cavity forms in the vortex with the centrifugal forces creating a vacuum, and this gives the tornado its destructive power. The enormous pressure difference sucks objects mercilessly into the seemingly insatiable belly of the storm and the debris which is collected gives the tornado its dark, ominous colour.
The tornado is a frequent happening in the
. These short-lived, ferocious storms hit hard and fast and often in “families” of two or three. In an awesome 25 minutes in 1942, Baldwyn in USA was hit by two tornadoes. A stunned Mississippi in 1951 saw an 83-ton railroad coach with 117 passengers swept 80-ft into the air and flung into a ditch. Minnesota has been struck by over two dozen such storms since 1892. Oklahoma
Tornadoes are difficult to predict; the only prediction which can be made with any certainty is that of a severe thunderstorm. A tentative area of high tornado-potential can then be marked off. Sky warm stations in the
manned by trained watchers keep a keen lookout for these storms. Localized destruction patterns help the community organize warnings and evacuations. Ironically, it is the frequency of the tornado that has established an effective warning system. USA
, tornadoes have usually occurred in rural areas; the India tornado was probably the first to hit a thickly populated area. The absence of concrete structures in rural areas has kept casualties low. Delhi
But the 1963 a tornado that swept through 33 villages of the Cooch-Behar area left over 100 people dead and thousands homeless. Less credible is the tale of the 1892 tornado in the 24-Parganas where hailstones weighing 1.6 kg each were reportedly seen. The occurrence in largely rural areas has made reporting, recording and early sighting of tornadoes difficult in
Its enigmatic violent nature and tremendous destructive power make the tornado one of the most fierce of nature’s weapons. When it struck
, it had left behind a fearsome night. We had watched in a daze as the area was cordoned off and relief work set in motion. Delhi
Searchlights had lit up the narrow path of destruction while fire engines and ambulances sounded through the night. The next day it had all seemed a bit too much to believe.
And as the initial shock wore away, the
wags went into action. One pointed out that only the front of a well-known girls’ college had been ravaged; another that the Delhi University University Students’ Union would gherao the Vice-Chancellor in protest. Delhi
PLEASE SEE WHAT HRD ARJUN SINGH HAD TO SAY
Ambedkar a role model for youth today, says Arjun
“Learn from his doggedness and determination”
“Well done”: Human Resources Development Minister Arjun Singh presenting the 3rd Ambedkar Ratan Samman to a student at
of Commerce in Shri Ram College on Saturday. Delhi : Urging the student community to draw lessons from the inspiring life of the chief architect of the Constitution, B. R. Ambedkar, Union Human Resource Development Minister Arjun Singh on Saturday said the youth must contribute towards the development of an ideal society. NEW DELHI
Giving away the “3rd Ambedkar Ratna Samman-2007” to students from across the country who performed well in the Class XII examination at a function organised by the Ambedkar Students’ Organisation here, the Minister said: “Students should learn from Dr. Ambdekar’s doggedness and determination. They should help in developing an ideal society where the poor and vulnerable sections of society will get justice.”
“Though there has been an increase in the number of students at different levels of education, unemployment and economic disparity still exist owing to which the youth get disillusioned,” said the Minister. “This is when they get attracted to crime and communalism. The youth should be alert of such forces. Every child who is getting awarded today is an Ambedkar, Gandhi or Einstein. The youth has to take the country to newer heights.”
The Minister awarded 23 students, comprising three from the general category and the rest from Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes, for scoring 90 per cent and above in the Class XII examination conducted by different Boards.
As many as 250 students who scored more then 80 per cent were felicitated, while a large number of children were awarded certificates for having scored 70 per cent and above.
Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Deepak Pental congratulated the young scholars and hoped that most of these meritorious students would get admission to the University.
Former Member of Parliament Surender Mohan and All-India Youth Congress president Ashok Tanwar were among those present at the function.

WHAT MR.PENTAL HAD TO SAY
Prof Deepak Pental
Professor Deepak Pental, the new Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University, is an eminent Professor of Genetics. He has earned recognition for his work in the field of breeding crop plants by conventional and molecular methods. An alumnus of
, Punjab University , he is an elected member of the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences and the Chandigarh . He has done extensive work on the practical implications in crops like mustard, cotton and tomato. In an interview to The Sunday Tribune, Prof Pental talks of his vision for the university. Indian National Science Academy
Q: How do you plan to bring the university at par with the best universities of the world?
A: I would like to first strengthen the library and laboratory systems. We have already introduced significant changes like the revised courses at the undergraduate level. Their successful implementation will indeed be a challenge. There is need for overall improvement in research and education. Good education and good research go hand in hand; some of the best known universities in the world have an excellent research profile.
Then, we will focus on development of course materials. In terms of research, the emphasis would be on sprucing the libraries, laboratories and allowing access to data banks all over the world. Our students and faculty should be able to make full use of the information available on any subject through Internet. We look forward to improvement in educational standards.
Q: What is your opinion about the resentment among teachers and students over the hurried introduction of the revised curriculum and reforms like internal assessment?
A: I am not aware of any resentment. These changes were long overdue. Why should someone with a first division be given a degree that reads Pass Course? The BA Pass Course should have been revamped years ago. How long can we continue teaching things that are not interesting or relevant?
As regards early or hurried implementation of these courses, how long should we have waited? When is the right time? There is a need to change the mindset. Internal assessment in itself has given the teachers and students an opportunity to connect and it helps in bridging gaps.
Moreover, it involves transparency and both teachers and students become responsible and accountable. Yet, if there are concerns about changes that have been proposed after much effort, then we can sit together and work out solutions.
Q: Given your interest in research, do you propose to set up new programmes or departments?
A: We have a number of research areas and in many spheres we are doing very well. Research papers from our colleagues and scholars are being published in journals of international repute. The idea right now is not to expand, but to strengthen. We need to consolidate what we have and innovate.
Besides, there is a new trend emerging. The colleges are offering add on courses along with the main course of study. This way, students learn more. In Life Sciences, for instance, we are doing well. The plant molecular department, working on the rice genome, is doing commendable work. We need to encourage departments and projects like this.
Q: Do you think students are not keen to go for higher studies and research?
A: Research is time consuming. The economy is booming in sectors like banking, IT, management and BPOs. Naturally, there is a drift towards these options rather than for research. Our aim should be to think of modules that cost less, but produce maximum knowledge. We are facing the situation similar to most developing nations, where research and development need uplift.
We need to entice good students towards research. Our science curriculum is unimaginative, the facilities in laboratories not too good and there is also parental pressure. All parents want their children to settle down fast. We need to increase the quantum of grants and encourage competitive grant system for universities. Instead of a combined grant, let there be grants for individual departments, because collective grants do not cover expenses like repair and replenishing.
Q: How will the IT sector address issues concerning
’s growth? India
A: IT can contribute to national success tremendously. Any sector can work for the nation by first realising what its basic requirements are. For us where a majority of population lives in rural areas, everyday information needs to be relayed and this is where IT can lend a helping hand.
They could begin by helping people get basic information like weather forecasting, information to farmers on seed kinds and quality, consumer rights, where and how people can get their work done like registering births and deaths.
’s potential in the IT sector has been recognised abroad, but it should help bridge the divide within the country. This can be done with valuable inputs from the recently set up Knowledge Commission. India
ISRAEL PEACE ISSUE

'Don't Give Up the Ship' -- the motto at
ANNAPOLIS -- "Don't Give Up the Ship,'' reads the motto on the flag hanging in a glass case above the main hallway of Bancroft Hall at the U.S. Naval Academy which leads to Memorial Hall, an ornate space surrounded by pillars, topped with a vaulted skylight and adorned with chandeliers.
The same flag hangs in a glass case on a side wall of the conference's Memorial Hall as well -- hanging above the side of the table where President Bush will be seated.
This is where Bush will join Israeli and Palestinian leaders and representatives from Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Syria and others -- a total of 40 nations, plus the Arab League and Portugal as the representative of the European Union -- around a square table set up for "The Annapolis Conference.'' No negotiations will take place here, the White House says. But instead, Israeli and Palestinian leaders will commit themselves to negotiations aimed at securing a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
The goal has eluded them for decades. And for three decades, American presidents have attempted, in varying measures, to secure an accord that not only confirms
's place in the world, but also provides Palestinians a place. President Bush, the first Israel president to endorse the creation of a Palestinian state, has convened this conference -- some five years after first voicing his goal of Israelis and Palestinians living side-by-side in peace. U.S.
For leaders filling Memorial Hall, it is a question of saving ships of state.

This is the seating chart in Memorial Hall today:
Looking at the conference table as a square, with the top in front of the pillars and a mural of The Annapolis Conference that frames the setting:
It would appear that chairs are reserved at the top of the square for Olmert and Abbas.

Middle Eastleaders: 'Thanks for coming'

ANNAPOLIS -- "Thanks for coming,'' President Bush told the leaders of Israel and the Palestinian Authority, representatives of Saudi Arabia, Syria, the Sudan and some three-dozen other nations represented at today's Annapolis Conference.
And then Bush was gone.
The president, who has maintained that the United States will foster but not attempt to steer any of the peace-talks to which the Israelis and Palestinians have committed themselves today, did not even stay for lunch at the Naval Academy officer's club.
Bush shook hands and clasped Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as the three delivered promising speeches here -- all sounding a common refrain, that "the time is right'' for peace talks. See Bush's speech here.
But 10 minutes after Olmert finished speaking, just after , Bush lifted off from the grounds of the U.S. Naval Academy in Marine One for a return helicopter ride to the White House. Abbas and Olmert, who met with Bush in the Oval Office on Monday, will return Wednesday for a followup before departing and opening talks which they have pledged to start next month.
"Thanks for coming'' -- Bush told the audience around the square table of Memorial Hall. He had met here with the two leaders beforehand, strode into the hall with them, and then he was gone. He returned to the White House for a meeting with Iraqi representatives and an interview with the Associated Press, in which he was certain to speak of today's achievements.
It was "a big event,'' White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said later in
. Tomorrow morning "is like the after-party.'' Washington November 7, 2007
This 'George W' finally called Musharraf today

-- Today -- four days after Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf declared emergency rule and started arresting protestors -- President Bush finally made a personal phone call to a MOUNT VERNON, Va. ally who has collected more than $11 billion in aid since 2001 and pledged to steer his nation toward democracy. U.S.
"My message was that we believe strongly in elections, and that you ought to have elections soon, and you need to take off your uniform,'' Bush said of his conversation with the president and Army chief of staff in
. "You can't be the president and the head of the military at the same time. So I had a very frank discussion with him.'' Pakistan
But it took the better part of four days for this discussion to take place, as Bush's senior aides -- including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice -- made their objections known in
. The White House had spoken of the strategy involved in letting others speak first. But members of Congress now are starting to challenge that Islamabad aid to U.S. . Pakistan
Bush revealed his call to Musharraf today at a press conference with Nicolas Sarkozy, president of
, at France , the home of George Washington. Bush often refers to Mount Vernon as that "other George W," and he did last night with Sarkozy at the White House. Today, though, it was all business. And time to report on that phone call to Musharraf. Washington
"Look, our objective is the same in
as it is in Burma , and that is to promote democracy,'' Bush said. "There is a difference, however. Pakistan has been on the path to democracy; Pakistan hadn't been on the path to democracy. And it requires different tactics to achieve the common objective. ... I just spoke to President Musharraf before I came here, and my message was very -- very plain, very easy to understand, and that is, the United States wants you to have the elections as scheduled and take your uniform off.'' Burma
The president, however, declined to respond to a question called out at the end of the Bush-Sarkozy briefing about what Musharraf had said in reply to his phone-called message.

THE SPIRIT OF LOVE-6
I am dead ,roses are welcome
Sensuous and heady in the grave
Who are you
You who beckon my spirit
I am dead
Leave the right to the brave
I desire to be naïve
And on my deathbed
Drunk and wild
The spirit is free from all shackles
And flying high in the skies of passion
Give me all of you
Nothing will remain then
To torment or haunt
So close in death
To part in life
Dreams are fatal for everyone
Rejoice for you are strong
And not amongst mere mortals throng
I am always wrong
The truth is the pathway to success
Contentment leads to good,better best,
Shakti is synonymous to all power
Drawn from the navel
For some it is musk
Others savour its blade
Time passes and teaches soldiers
The answers from the depths of decades
Who shall’t be king
Magnificent in his power
Humble in his passions
Omis the password
In the computer world of today
Keep the evil at bay.
Food for thought-8
Seven are the colours
In our dreamworld
Why are some so blatant and others muted
A waft of someone fires your senses
And others make you puke in their denses
I am heady and float on cloud nine
You push me down and ask me are you fine?
Who are these beside you
Who mislead you in your time
You are the pure;you are the mirror,
Then why your digestion you spoil
Are you really hungry ?
There is plenty to tide you;
Can the emptiness be mine
Food for thought is thine.
I HELP YOU SAIL-9
Love is a four letter word
God is three
The number match
Play and be free
‘o’ how it be possible
You dared to ask
Colour the world ?
Dare be thy task
Woe betide anyone
Who utters this blasphemy
Are you the same and angry
Let me help you cross
Lest you falter and bloody your file
So much to learn
But all knowledge was
Only a fern
Do not burn
In your own kiln
Lest I follow you
And cover only a mile
A drop of rain is after all a rainbow
The power to embrace the earth it has
You have a decoration
Where there is no bail
I grow wild and twine
In your sail
And help you cross
To follow the trail
Thou I might be frail
And feeling only Braille
Higher and faster flow the waters
Save thy self
Lest you waft
On your raft
Leaving behind all worldly matters
God be with you
And nurse your mind
Stab not from behind
Sink and do
What thy spirit commands
Blame not anyone then
I help you sail
And keep you sane
For the rainbow
And its colours.
The heart of a child my beloved has
And makes me wonder so
So naïve and senseless in his passions
But without a bow
Cupid is stupid
His arrows on the mark
His bow the soil’s rainbow
Strike does he
On a horse
But without a bow
Coiled for ever
Damn the austerity
But without a bow
Hold out your hand
Open thy eyes
For cupid strikes
With a song and a dance
In the rain
Cursed be he and hell his abode
And we live on
On bread and water
Bring in your mane
Open out thy pain
On thy foot
On thy earth
On thy mercy
Spread out your tresses
Be you supine
Glory of the divine
Standing on a foot
Handsome and weary?
Take these hands
To your lips
Beware the tips
Tie a band
And fly away together
To a mystic land.
How to explain to a novea
The sense of doom
I do not say
Choked am I with senseless zoom
Dead or alive
Hands in the air
Not a complaint
Dance together or paint
At the peak of time
To come down as rain
And save you the pain
Washed are the colours naturally
Did you say beautifully?
What a clean song
Of a novea.
Perfume the senses now
For this is eternity
Forever and forever
Unending rhythm of love
Venus the goddess
Takes you on a flight of fantasy
What are you
But an intrument
To be moulded and carved
With the teeth of a dagger
Marble and easy
In the end but in the lap
Of eternal bounty
The law has come with chains and sanity
This is the beginning
Of a story
THE JOURNEY TO POSTERITY-13
The journey to posterity,
Came to me through a postern
Atop a wooden urn
Whispering honey into my ears
Dulling my senses
Your breath in the concave
Your warmth and fire
Leave me and save
Hold me and pave
The way you choose
Nothing to loose
Consider not a tightrope
Atwine to hire
Hold me close-so close-so close
As strength to a pyre
Together feel and enjoy
Each sense and its fire
Bloom out into a thousand roses
Imagination and poses
What a dance
No one worthy of.his own today.
The truth and nothing else in the midway?
Have a nice day!
Be my Valerian -14
O, my dear be unto a valerian
In her arms eternal peace
And power of the divine
Sleep through this heat
Hear the wild beat
She is yours
Your dreams coloured
In her rhythm :see mine
Be my valerian
Coo you to sleep
Soak thy seeds benign
And fear not the grace benedicite
Smell the earth
After the first shower
And cook thy pulse with the sedum
Of the privity
Tomorrow is another day
God will bring the sunshine
In your folded hands
With the resin of the valerian
Sings this benign
Goodnight and be fine.
Today I am wild
How are you?
Behind the canvas
You play hide and seek
Be my inspiration
Out in the open,snatch you out
Wither not you and bloom
Make a man out of you
Or remain in desperation
Or in an asylum
Countdown to your doom?
Test the salt on your lips
Down to your throat
Breath and perspiration
Add on and on
Helpless in my custody
Heat of your body
Possess you in the piquant pour and note
To a frenzy in orpine
Demonic to gloaming
Indomitable to pedology
Flora to phylum
Indulgent and spent, you colour my canvas
Goddess or nubile
As in brine-overbrim
The tears of ecstasy
Come and fly from one end to the other Or swim to the depths of fantasy
Pulsate in every pixel a rigadoon
OH-oo-the heart-no-no-it’s ophthalmia-its pertussis of the pestilence
In the hands of the Kewpie,freegifts of ketosis
God help the ailing and gift them surfactant of the surficial
Together celebrate a tercentenary
With a totalitarian
An umbilical hope??????????????/@
Dear darling heart savor’
Today wait for me at your door,
In your dreams,
A foray to verismo,
If you can bear it no more,
Salvo jure of the vestal Maya,
A n incubus;but- to your desire,
That is how the twain shall meet
Then exorcize everyday,
Hail and hearty on your way
Trick the world
And we will play
This festal game of the lyncean tribe,
To keep you alive
A breathy baritone
To a woman
Incorporeal and too feline
Come close and sway
Pulsate to this wild rhythm,
Together and supine
Surreal rendezvous and fray
Captive bard and lovelorn novice
In a Super reflective samadhi
Truth to betray.
Distant dreams come close when I close my eyes
Deep inside my pain,
Outside my disdain,
Who knows me but you,
Turning and churning
Another look another lane
My mind your sane!
Let me look through your eyes,
You look through my heart,
Different and quiesant
Give me all your pain,
The world doubts the motive of the pure and alone
But never so of the hare brained,
Why dream at all?
SALVE AND SIN-19
Your wild spirit is mine and only mine.-
Possessed you are and divine,
Leave you I cannot,
For nature made us so ,
To be captive to the spirit always,
Nothing can deter me to possess you ,
Cell by cell,head to toe,
Enshrined and enslaved I cannot let go ,
Till the earth and the greens bind you so.
You are my salve and sin,
Enslaved together forever and ever,
Till the birds sing on this earth,
Till the moon’s seductive lore,
I’ll love you and you forever more,
With each sapling ,we twine ,
With each tree and seed ,
Everytime a love note is heard in my dreams,
Life captures a new seed
And thus the greens procreate,
When each sweet breath meets,
Breathing life into flora and wild beats,
Can a love be so bestir?
Whenever I feel you so near,
Your spirit leaves your body to be mine,
Yet you are alive and breathing ,
As the wilds dimerous divine.
Yes this is the exotic and erotic earth,
Laid back together ,under the heavens
Night blooms our hearth
Indemnity to our desires,
Senses and poignant berth
Rest and rest today,as fire beside fire.
Zing a ling a ling ,
Trying to swing a swing.,
The leaves ,the flowers, the twining vale,
The warm breath sweet to inhale,
Singing today I delve so deep,
In a beating heart and hale,
Silver and gold drips in a shower ful mane,
Shimmering ia a diaphanous veil,
Together entwined ephemeral tale.
Can you tell one from the other?
Who gives and who gave?
Hermitic fort-,only the wind
Whispering sweet nothings,
Inside a gale!
Who remembers ?
When the present sways each sense away.
Come close and closer still,
Did you ever feel this way?
Words become melody,
The interminable thirst today
Swaying to your note of happiness,
Comely and swelling mane,
Lithe composition,swirling scintillate,
Till nebulous,I possess my mate.
Eliciting and frolicking rain,
Of love and perquisite pain,
In the lap of sultry desire,
Prolific racemes,like blooming fire,
Envelope us,tingling together,
Beauty with beauty gathers,
Perspicacious perfume and pheromones,
I cannot discern in arms of vigour,
Submitting whispering tones,
Cooing a metaphysical trigger.
Take me to the summit and higher,
Moments stop to entwine,
Pulsating on a lye divine
And descend to perspire.
How much near,
How much far,
In a stroke of forceful desire,
Then helpless ,
Relishing and reliving every fetish,
Is there no end ?
To our lot?
Yes-a wanton and scorching knot.
