sensory memories

~
grieving smiling
in turns I recall
her tiny quick
culinary fixes
and suddenly
my morning
takes on an extra
glow as if I was
with her…..
~
pressing another
head of a clove
with index thumb
into my second
cuppa already
cardamon flavored
I smile and weep
in returns…a love like
ours has a life of it’s own
~
I’ve tried to drown my sorrows in tea, but they are strong swimmers……

safe haven

touched
by
amazing grace
fingers hum
in air ….
feelers seeking
space
between spaces…..
for squirreling
away..
unshared tender
moments…
programmed
for firing synapses
when mind
blunders about
lost in time’s fog
for gentle
reeling in
to
love’s safe
keeping

 

 

miasma

~
beset by glowering
grey skies
i forbid miasma
to overpower
usual bouncy
spirit
~
deep sleep
post binge on Golden
Globes avec Dame Streep’
De Mille speech heartened
weft woof of heart mind’s
despair in life’s loom
~
amidst morning’s
soul stirring mantra chants
I who no longer seek anything
but Him from Him now pray
for safe steer of my beloved
adopted home’s safe moorings
~
a diffident prayer
that am letting blossom
to uplift darkened skies
letting hope and innate goodness
forever prevail overthrowing
apathies in one fell swoop
~
hands
come together
in tandem
eyes warm
to inner glow
buoyantly burning bright
~

 

 

 

insatiate love

my insatiate love’s fingers
continue to lightly brush yours
some cherished memories are
beyond time and death’s grasp

irrational

irrational
acts still my digits
gently tappings
MacBook keys
I
chide myself
shaking head
when did
duplicating
images
of loved ones
bring them back
from dead?
wistfully hugging
self I feel moistened
by reminisced love
she’d so generously
showered and
my eyes
mist over again
and again
never quite
drying
and I suddenly
feel warmed
inside out
on this very
chilly December
morning
~
with my beloved late aunt (chaachi) who showered much love on us after we’d lost our mom
