Weekend inertia

Aah come the much awaited weekend
And what do we typically do?
Fritter it away
Like there was no other care!

A hectic week, followed by a lethargic weekend
Can never fathom where it went
Time just seemed to zip by
Nothing could I do about it but simply sigh

While I sat motionless rooted to the spot
I was cast away from my lot
Did not feel like completing my weekend chores
Wished someone would lift me out of my woes

I felt to tired even to relax
Sleep was elusive and kept me feeling taxed
Switching on the tv made my head hurt
I kept on wondering why my weekend was cursed

Just two days in a week do we get to unwind
Then why must I feel as if I'm in a bind?
Why can't I have some fun and let things go
For once let my hair down and polish my toes

Why does the weekend finish
Before it even began
Why do I feel like a sardine stuffed in a can
Will someone point me out of this misery? Please man!

This never-ending inertia will drive me insane
I've tried everything to cure this lethargy but in vain
Two days have passed and I've done nothing but crib and cry
It's just been no use how much ever I tried

Sometimes we just need to get away from everything
That's when staying still and motionless helps more than anything
When you truly crave inner peace
Spending time reflecting is something you can do in the least

Hope this lethargic monster
Will go away yonder
Never to return and make my blood burn
So that I can enjoy my weekend by being active at each turn.

Congratulations on completing a decade at work!!!

I had one of my ex-project managers complete a decade of service at work so wrote the below poem to congratulate him on this momentous occasion.

Heartiest congratulations! A decade's time for a big celebration!
Ten illustrious years, For your glorious career we all cheer!
A decade of service, Your wealth of experience- priceless.
Countless challenges triumphed, Your boundless energy has everyone pumped.
Your inclusive leadership style, Makes everyone feel worthwhile.
Empowering us to excel, And chart paths novel.
An action oriented leader, Who is more than a manager.
A mentor and motivator, Whom to emulate we aspire.
Working with you has been truly inspiring and awesome, Best wishes for many more magnificent years to come!

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks? 

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people
Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

Eulogy for my Grandmother (Nani)

One of the hardest things a person has to do in life is write and give an eulogy on the passing away of a loved one. Last week, my Nani left for her heavenly abode and today was the prayer meeting on the Chautha (4th Day). 

I'm sharing with all of you the eulogy in the form of a poem I wrote last night for her on behalf of all her grandchildren. I share this here because paying tribute to a dear one and speaking to a packed room full of people, while keeping your emotions in check is not easy, however is inevitable.

Thank you so much for joining us in prayer this afternoon to pay homage to our beloved Nirmal Khanna. A mother is more precious than any other person. A grandmother, being a mother twice over, is closest to her grandchildren. On behalf of her grandchildren whom she adored: Ujjwal, Kamakshi, Dhruv, Akshiena and Vyomi, this poem is dedicated to our iron lady with a will of steel.

Your loving arms Were our tranquil oasis Your radiant smile Exuded a halo …
