Fever – anatomy

Icy fingers
spread
chilled
All over
Gnawed
At joints

Disjointed head
Clarity robbed
Throbbed as
Eyes heavy
Lidded, bobbed
Sleep robbed

feel good
Feel sobbed
listless languid
spirit tried to
stand upright
awkward foal

maudlin thoughts
tried another coup
I showed them door
Happy is me always
Body may be weak
Spirit tends to soar

Revolving Door

Revolving Door

a thinker
twirling words
uncurling locks
bunches crunched
tangled tumbled
emotional high, lows
hot coals aglow

seared simmer
in poet’s fire
stoked often
for mind’s warmth

comforts
cozy lullabies
war cries
defiance
reliance
askance
stealthily

as they tiptoe
out of poet’s back burner
into forefront at the get go

enter at will
tiptoe
in, or
exit
via
revolving
door
of a
poet’s
mind

Triplets – Doll series

Family Portrait
 

role models flawed
offspring marred
portrait askew

The Sea Within

Tsunami traumas
calm lulls
ocean fathomless

Broken Dolls

Perfect form nautical
Perfect landing umbilical
Imperfect handlers

Nesting dolls

Forms within forms
Bodies within bodies
everybody

Nature’s Ballerina’s (edited)

Nature’s ballerinas

Nature’s ballerinas
Pirouetting prima donnas
wooing lovers

in limelight
scintillating bright
transient life

Intricate sublime
rainbow wings divine
Maker’s palette

Flickering coquettes
Sucking nectar giddily
overturned hourglass

no grief only joy
No sighs, only highs
life lessons
**
The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.  ~Rabindranath Tagore

a touch
harbinger
of good news

a touch
infusion of life
quickened

a touch
frisson in
every pore

a touch
sensory
déjà vu

a touch
delightful
excitement

a touch
searing
singe

a touch
bereft
withdrawn

a touch
safe
haven

a touch
calm
serenity

a touch
own
known

a touch
to live
die for
