10 May Creative Side of Tech Writers
On the Waterfront
Shimmering pearls in the afternoon sun
Speak with me through the sunlight;
I welcome them with my heart
My soul reaching out for the warmth.
A kite swoops in for a farsighted meal,
Wings steady in the springtime breeze.
Fishing boats stand in line,
Casting shadows on the bay.
The trees stand tall and slender,
Extending their handshake to the sky;
Epitome of strength and stability,
Leaves fluttering happily.
My eyes search the blue firmament
With a belonging long forgotten,
As the God of small things
Fills me up with the eternal rhythm.

THE MAN WHO WANTED TO CONQUER THE MOUNTAIN
There was a man who wanted to climb the mountain
Though he knew the path is laden with dangers uncertain
That didn’t deter him though from aiming high
He was shooting for the stars and wanted to touch the sky
And, the day soon arrived and he started to climb
Forgetting the past and leaving failures behind
Every step forward filled his heart with pride
There were rocks and thorns;
He surpassed them with long strides
With time passing by, he started feeling tired
He was feeling hungry and his mouth a bit dry
He gave himself a break and started on the quest again
As he knew that his efforts will not go in vain
His efforts bore fruit and he was at the peak
There was a sense of wonder in his heart
And his soul didn’t speak
Finally, he tasted the success that he always dreamed of
Teaching us a lesson that
Come what may, we should not back off.
