Water Water Everywhere!

The ocean vast and rising waves
Crashing strong with surf and spray
See through it to really know

Its water and water all alone!

भगवंताने मेघ धाडिले

भगवंताने मेघ धाडिले
काळे निळे तें जळें जांभळे
पर्जन्याचें सरीं भिजाले
ओले चिंब हे विश्व आघवे

This is a small poem I wrote in Marathi, my mother tongue. Its difficult to capture the same in English, but very loosely translated it means:
God has sent the clouds that are
Black and blue, and watery violet
The rain showers have wetted now
Fully drenched, the entire world

The Mountain Top

Dizzying heights with sheer drops
Boulders piled on rugged rocks
Here I stay, above it all
That's my home, the mountain top!

A River In Spate

The heavy rains and cloudy skies
Swelling waters by mountain sides
Raging ahead, the river in spate
Taking away, all in its wake!

A Sight In Black and White

Colored trees, green and dark
Golden grass and earthen path
All in stark, black and white
Makes me see, a different sight

Approaching Rains

The summer hot, dry and long
Brown and yellow, the mountain top
Arrive the clouds, with laden rains
To soothe it down, be fresh again!

Two Bulls Under Banyan Tree

A hard day's work, now over and done
Together my friend, we did as one
Let's feed and rest here, you and me
Some time now under the banyan tree
