Poems by Chandra Prakash Sharma

Poems by Chandra Prakash Sharma


When I Kiss You

When I kiss you,
my whole being is vibrant with the music of
the Alaknanda gushing down the Himalayas
rounding the angularities of my mind
to move in unison with you
passionately eager to mingle
into the oceanic depths of serenity.

When I kiss you,
I feel, I am a butterfly
hopping in joy from flower to flower
colouring my soul in your colour
gathering honey from flower cups
softening my soul in your arms
feeling the bliss of eternity.


Note: Alaknanda is a Himalayan river in the state of Uttarakhand, India that is one of the two headstreams of the Ganges, the major river of Northern India and the holy river of Hinduism. The other headstream, Bhagirathi, which is longer, is the source stream.


The Dawn

With the dawn
the sun emerges
from the dark womb of the Universe
through the golden window of the East
bringing with it the heavenly glow
that bathes the blue sky in its radiant hue.

The soothing shades of light
come with the cool refreshing breeze
gently awake the world
to celebrate the birth of the day,
the birds fly in flocks in search of food
singing sweet song of love and happiness.

The green grass grounds
bedecked with pearly dew,
the colourful flowers
tossing their heads in sprightly dance
in glory of the new born dawn
exuding their fragrant glee.

During my morning walks
in the Baraadri Gardens*
its colour, music, freshness and
fragrant air filtered through trees
oxygenates my age old lungs
for a new decadal race.

Note: Baradari Gardens means the garden with twelve entrances. It was built in a Mughal style in 1876 by Rajinder Singh. Baradari Gardens is in the north of Patiala city and is situated in the outer part of Sheranwala Gate. Baradari Gardens were constructed near the Baradari palace, which was a residence of Emperor Rajinder Singh. He brought rare species of trees and flowers from different places and planted them in this garden. The big fruit trees the Fern House and the Rock Garden show his interest towards nature. Another name of Rajinder Kothi is Baradari Kothi because it is situated near the Baradari Garden. Today, the Baradari Palace is a warehouse of important historical documents.
