Wanderers: Me and Guitarra ( Part-I )

Every dream has to last one day
So it must last too
Either you say good bye to me
Or I shall bade fare well to you
Leaving loved one to kiss misfortune
As wanderers usually do

I shall trot my way through pipes
From Piano to viola, fiddles and drum
You shall wander from heart to heart
Sharing your laughter, woes and hum

If the time will be kind enough
I shall see you once again
To reckon you what I lost and found
Tales of adventure, wanderer's pain

A day will come when wanderings will end
I shall die for endless sleep
You too shall be tired of men
longing for worms to infest you deep

Dreams will die and dreamers will die
But not the content of dreams will die
Someone again will chisel some wood
To play you Guitarra with a sigh

My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Azab khamoshiyan hain yanhan, azab chahalkadami hai/
Bulbulein pashopesh mein hain, har geet galatfahmi hai//
kyon sans bhar geet gaane par, ab woh baharein nahi aati/
kyon ujada hai ye chaman, kyon har shaakh sahami hai//

Meaning:

Strange are silences here, strange is the movement of foot steps/
Nightingales are in state of ambivalence, every song is a facade//
Why on singing my full breath, now that spring does not return/
Why this garden is withered, Why every branch is scared//
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Wanderers: Me and Guitarra (part- II)

In persuit of adventure, to experiment wind, I went to see the pipes
Some of them were revered one, rest were apes of temple sites
One torn off my fine clothes, another rummaged pockets
Two climbed up straight on my head as if they had tickets
Their frolic was horrible , still more terrible were fights
Somehow I made narrow escape from severe ear bites

I went to see piano too, in search of music, peace and love
She turned out a proud lady, wearing mask of gentle dove
She danced her keys in novel ways and also sang them well
But when I exalted for Guitarra, she yelled bitterly 'Go to Hell'
I fell in utter disdain, could not bear my heart's pain
Without waiting for another moment, walked away in utmost vain

I thought, I can have long friendship, only with the drum
I failed to woke him up for days, he had drank so much of rum
Viola and fiddles were all alike, spoke in some strange tongue
I cried and sighed remembering Guitarra, how sweetly life was sung

Wanderers: Me & Guitarra ( Part-III )

Still in his heart, he longs for her
Still in his mind, he ponders her
In a wide world, away from Guitarra
His soul and ears equally suffer

Still in her bossom, there are songs for him
Her frets corrode, strings wait for him
As a woman whose man has gone too far
She dusts in a closet, she weeps for him

Still in the tavern, four walls often talk
They could have gone , if they could walk
To look for them and bring them back
Back to tavern, from wanderers' stalk
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Aur Ek varsh jeevan ka, gaya nirarthak beet/
kohre ki chaader ko odhe, aaya nirmam sheet//
Ekal man ka dheeraj bandhe, ekal man ki preet/
Ekal man ka maun todate, bhoole bisare Geet//



Meaning:
And one more year of life, passed without much happenings/
Once again the cruel winter is here, disguised in a sheet of Fog//
What consoles the lonely heart is the only love that it knew/
Old forgotten songs are echoing, breaking the silence of the lonely heart //
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Wanderers: Me & Guitarra ( Part-IV)

As my frail nails fall, as my eyes haze
As my aged ears buzz , senile mind laze
I remember you, Guitarra
What a pity has fallen upon us

Where is the love that we cherished
Where is the trust that we had
Why the neck is bent in sorrow
Where is the rod that truss

Tavern is crying aloud
And so the walls that make it
Deserted notes are dusting on table
Empty cups are making fuss
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Wanderers: Me & Guitarra ( Part-V)

My eyes are perennial brooks
My tears are torrential rain
Despite it my soul is thirsty
Burns with agony, suffers pain

I am the bird who lost her nest
My bleeding heart is ripped from chest
Away from Guitarra, in fading zest
As broken sail, I fall from the crest

I wander world with sack of sorrows
As Jews and Gypsies seek for land
She laughs and weeps for fate of mine
As she wanders hand to hand
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Wanderers: Guitarra Speaketh( Part-VI)

I am cursed to live forever,
bound to wander among them/
Weeping, laughing, sighing,singing,
bearing musical diadem //

I am fad up with their sigh and cries,
never ending poetic lies/
Soleá, Bulería, Fandango,Tango,
Choro,Rumba and lullabies//

Vision of woods haunt me,
I wish to return my home/
Among the brooks and birds,
instead of cathedral dome //

I wish for a solitary life,
sans Guitarristas, pubs and clubs/
Die and decay as woods do,
among the flowery shrubs//
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Guitarra, Are you Listening? -I

You are the first hue of the forest/
You are the first dew over the leaves/
You are the first light that sparkles/
You are the first love that heart weaves//

You are the first fragrance of the wild/
You are the first drop of honey/
You are the first song of the birds/
Lively, playful tune so funny//

You are the first stalk of the tiger/
You are the first flap of the fish/
You are the first fruit of Eden/
You are the Adam's first kiss//

Guitarra, Are You Listening? - II

There is no other world that I have to seek/
There is no other sky that I have to reach//
I will laugh, I will weep, I will brood, I will cry/
Words are given, I will never say goodbye//
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

Guitarra Are You Listening - V

Saint Kabir said:
Pothi parh-parh jag mua, pundit hua na koe/
Dhai akhar prem ka parhe so pundit hoe//

Meaning: whole world aged , diseased and died reading numerous books of knowledge, but none could emerge a man of knowledge/ but when some one learns the two and a half syllable of word 'Prem' (love), he becomes a wise man//


Guitarra, Usted mi libro de amor 📕

Guitarra, You are my book of love. I am your voracious reader.
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo

'Ode To A Freely Falling Soul'

Where you may freely fall my lovely/
You may fall freely to nowhere roughly/
Universe is vast and ever expanding/
Curves of infinity somewhere bending/
Since there exist no ends in any direction/
Fall, if you wish, into dark and deception /
So, better you hang on as I do/
As I speak, as I woo/
Close to Guitarra, close to my own self/
Lesser than angels, better than elves//
My heart is wood
My heart is hollow
My heart can play only solo
