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!
..

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

 

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

morning has broken

morning has broken

gradually tinting
insides in color
saffron
morning tea
trips in drips
..
upturned face
cuts into steadily
flooding saffron beam
seamlessly
joining..
..
off-kilter spirit
finds own groove
gently eases
into.. finally
centering

effulgent
insides
outside dawn
serenity’s cloak
homing in…

 

2 to 1

Awake
When world sleeps
I return
To my beginnings
As steam rises from
Fresh brew
I step into myself
Making my journey
From two
To
One
That is
You
