My offering on the fifth day of my 7 days of Christmas

This is my tribute to Christmas. I got too much occupied with a lot of things, this commitment to write on each day of the Christmas Week is my offering to the season's message to each and everyone of us.

A Christmas Revolution

Frets' in revolution!
- broken strings -
No melodies needed for the five golden rings
as they shine by themselves- looking musical
But will it work for Rudolph when his red nose
needs strumming and plucking to sing his worth?
Have you ever wondered what santa would say
when his favorite won't move his sleigh?

Lame as it seems, when frets revolve
as strings may not matter to rumblings of a hungry stomach.
And they say:
Why sing it out with Merry when it's Not?
What good is there to put back the strings
when all are spoiled chicken wings
(recycled to fight hunger not minding appetite.)

But when strings are broken and merriment stops
Will such rumblings too?

When food is not possible
Music feeds the soul- it is doable.

When part of you is hungry
will it be bad for you to keep a heart full of Merry?

I consider myself a scribbler. When I feel my heart is full, I suppress speech and write my heart out. I write from things that awakens my sensitivity as a person. It is my passion. It is simply me.
