I Searched for you

I Searched for you.....

…among the boisterous crowd,
Yelled your name aloud,
Plodded along the sparkling brooks,
Combed all the odd nooks.

Looked even in a mole-hole,
Fiddled with numbers to give you a call,
Looked for you in the garbage pit,
And in a murky room candle-lit.

Spared not, even a trash bin,
Probed inside shredded pods of bean,
Hunted every room of office,
Isn’t it you among Langurs on tree canopies?

I searched for you inside ice-crammed water pipe,
Searched for you on Facebook and Skype,
Interrogated all brunettes and blondes,
I turned all the goddamn stones.

I dived in all the bone chilling rivers,
Hoping to find you among the beavers,
Sauntered along with the foxes,
Opened and tore all the carton boxes.

Where are you, my girl?
Exhausted! I am beginning to fall,
Not fair, come on give me a clue,
Tearing earthly rifts i shall reach you !!!

For Teacher’s Day

Oblivion is a murky passage,
impeded by trancing rut,
You risk  a lone walk
and allay your cognitive gut.

 Teachers are fiery flames,
 Illuminating that dark passage,
the helm of infallible wisdom,
under your feet I offer my reverent pledge.

You ushered rays of brilliance
into my ignorantly tainted soul
pacifying my urge for wisdom
you made me whole.

May 2nd is a historic milestone,
For me to laudably say,
Dear teacher, my Mentor

“ Joyful Teacher’s Day”.
