9.3.17

48 hours
unceremoniously rained out
perforce we stay indoors
hugging
steaming cups of Java
cooking in turns
in easy camaraderie
like worn out jackets
that we’re always loath
to discard ..
parallel companionable
living is all and more it’s
cracked up to be and every time
I need to go out …he hastily raises
his head in a mix of surprise and alarm
which is quite heartwarming reinforcing
my assertion that we truly
belong… seventeen plus years
of togetherness can do that ..
so what if it’s second innings
..we are active players living life
to the hilt ‘cos we are a Hit!
..

damp squib days

Two hats wearer does justice
To neither, pulled in both
Directions
~

Only one arm
Gets longer than the other
Depending on who’s stronger
~
I remained
where
I began
..

if only

If only
I could chisel
Letters, vowel(ing)
Form fitted
Thoughts

Pain radiates
in waves
Transforming into a banshee
Flounder, floundering
In final throes

Writing
Is love’s labor
enforced by habit
done by rote controlled
by mind’s remote

emoting bonhomie
twenty-four –seven
is fast becoming hard nut
to crack as crumbling structure
glassily eye- needles

mind
over matter
matter over mind
wondering who will succeed
in getting upper hand

…finis

melt

melt
…days melt like ice cubes in my hot mouth as puffed cheeks blow out stale breath in staccato moves… things that move me are seen with heart … mind always taking back seat…..
the patterns made by gawky foal like dawn’s rays hitting net curtains patterning our parquet floors … all that is fleeting and exquisite makes my day …wisps of steam escaping tea kettle painfully whistling my name … and finally that perfect cup of tea with biscuit creating a spool of harmony…

Lisbon, Portugal

 

alignment

Basking
exclusively
in own zone

Eclectic chants
swirl dust motes
around head

Morning air
unfurling it’s palms
Sieving dawn’s

glowing effulgence
as pain replete body
Limbs finally catch-on

Rhythmically
swinging
keeping time

Music heals
now fully
experiencing

as alerted pores
gooseflesh
in ovations

fully
aligning
essential

me in a rare
Phenomenal
sight
