Sudden

..
startle of color
Hush of beauty
Brisk of air
Joy of vendors
Quick intake
Of breath

Spring in steps
Steep inclines declines
Steeped in history
Ancient bricks mortar
with infinite
Stories to tell

Drinking
In beauty
Spirit parched of normalcy
By “strange turn of events”
Slates thirst..leaden heart lifted
Smudged of alternate facts

In lovely Taormina, Sicily

Yet am
Fully

Let’s see how smug Opportunity will be when it finally knocks at Death’s door.

How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me ?

yesterdays

coils

fate
tends
to foil
in parries
and thrusts
I’ve mastered
fencing feints
with mind

~
still very much
owning myself
I drop and lose
life in senior
moments
while valiantly
warding off fogs
of mind
~
faith
keeps me
centered and
firmly tethered
to my true love
while destiny
plays fast and
loose
~
ever game
to pick up
thrown gauntlets
I meet fate head-on
at times mauled
and bloodied…but
never ever backing
down
~
it
is
simply
not
in
my
full flowing

Jai Ho ! (old repost)

Jai Ho !
Haphazard concrete
Warrens
Aping things foreign
Wall graffiti
Declaring cure alls
Unfinished headless
Structures
Pigeons and vultures
Lascivious pious
Smarmy neighbor
Vying Joneses
Allah mullah
Jesus sidling
God pantheons
Aspiring spires
Peals escaping
Temple bells
Belles bearing
Water pots
Riff raff taking pot shots
Holy unholy
Ubiquitous peepul
Tree
Peopled by glittery
Red scarves of desires
Ancient dusty
Towns lost
And found
Sunset to sunrise
Amidst herds of cattle
Would be cities- attentions bite
Bytes visual
Stab and wound
The Discerning with nibbling bites
