sorrow

Let
sorrow in my eyes
Not deter
do stay awhile
Share
your woes
Perchance
our hearts
May mend
heal together
one never
knows

 

Painting: Elayaraja

You

Daily
you pour silver in the moon
at night
glow in the sun
at daybreak
make stars come alive
against dark skies
most of the time
..
why then can you not
come again
reveal yourself
to my thirsty eyes
any which way
assuage this sore
heart often led astray
by straying…veering off
off-center
..
hand held
by grief’s
vapors’ undoing…
quick, come soon
before I swoon
in agonies
of deprivation
caused by love
of you
..
come
wearing a flute
on your divine lips
peacock feather
in dark tresses
fresh flowers
adorning thy body
all super lucky
having touched you…

sadness

and in the middle of my chaos there was you .. Nabina Das

he asked :
..
I see sunset in your eyes
a lingering grief …
why is that ..has my love fallen short?
..
She replied :

on the contrary ..your abundant love
is the reason you see sunset in my eyes
love is such a thing of beauty that it hurts
and I worry about it’s lifeline

final diagnosis

 

Flying the Coop

imprisoned by pain
only mind over matter
will cut my chains

Standing tiptoe
Morning evening I’ve relished
secondhand Bay window views
..
most days birds atwitter
exuberantly cut patterns
Revealing skies anew
..
covey of swaying wings
Delightfully unfurl skies
flirting with cloud swell
..
Bottled moth that I am
I taste freedom’s ice cube
thus in mouth daily
..
So near so far
That is how life is
Cruelly tantalizing
..
Promise made yesterday..I too shall
spread my wings sauntering out
cutting chains of own fears’ making

..
