Poems by Manisha Gupta

Those Words Unsaid….  

Every expression has value
Every expression of love has lovely value. 

                        That smile on the lips
                        Works wonders if it slips 

That twinkle in the eye
Brightens up the sky 

                        That slight little touch
                        Says more than much 

That care
That tease
That fun
That ease
That single little word
May the world freeze. 

                        Every expression has value
                        Every expression of love has lovely value. 

But………….

                        Those words unsaid
                        Are immeasurable
                        And invaluable!!

The Old & The Dutiful

Times have changed
Values have changed 

                        Brains have trained
                        Morals have drained 

Systems have changed
Societies have changed 

                        Instead of the simple, the calm and the peaceful
                        We have the “hep”, the enlightened and the colourful 

Yet in this era of the bold and the beautiful
We still do find some of the old and the dutiful.

 

“Fall” in Spring…..?

Here comes Spring

With a spring in step

And a bounce in feel

But hold that heel

And the bounce of the dress.

                        For….

                        Spring may turn into “Fall”

With the slip in the hall

                        And the trip of the heel

                        And the slide of the dress.

And……..

As you go slip slide and trip

Shutterbugs go click click & click.

                        Let Spring remain spring

                        Colourful and bounty

                        Clutch at its beauty

                        Don’t ever let it fall

                        For…  “Fall” will come much later.
