IN Custody

A beautiful couplet
took my breath away
Trying to translate its exquisite nuances
Is keeping me awake….
….

Taking each literal word
in my mouth I let
it melt ….an ice cube astride a neat shot
Giving me a natural euphoric high…..
….

besotted by it’s
gorgeousness I’ve arrived
At a poetic impasse..that neither lets me
move forward nor backwards as I playfully
….

Continue fawning, wooing each nuance with my
tongue bordering on the risqué fully in it’s embrace
As if it were a writhing physical
being in throes of petit morts
…..

clouds have
manhandled
toothless sun
cowering behind
shorn trees, houses
glory days
come
go
Sun’s day
will
also
come
I
sure
hope
so!

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in wonderland
persona
takes leaps
of faith –
….treading time
in centuries
old place(s)
tracing
mind’s fingers…
with deja vu
moments
akin
to effervescent
feet
dancing
on graves
……
I return
with
more questions
egged
on
by unbridled
curiosity
Usually
as
take
aways
~

staring

staring at stark
trees heart beats
Sank….
…had readied
mood
for lightening
….
still bare branches
crushed burgeoning
happiness

guess …will
carpe diem
Next time

romancing words yet again

romancing words
i lovingly fondle them
as if they were pleasing
surfaces of my favorite
old stone from Ireland
that I fondly pocket carry
~
giddy joy and love I’ve
spilt once too many..now am
mastering art of containment
as ones I wish to indulge court
are way too young..alas villain
age disallows further tarry…
~
entering inner sanctuary
I make peace with past laments
laying to rest pet peeves’ torment
squaring off life dealt equations
avowing to be sufficient unto self
for final verse : untethering my soul …
