State of Affairs


State of Affairs

Curling self in inverted colon
Posture, I hugged a soft pillow
To chest luxuriating in laziness

At times such indulgences coupled
With other guilty trespasses
Make life more interesting

Forgetting daily life’s hurly burly
I let my glow from within
Spill all over my outsides

An inside out firefly aglow
Externally beaming internally
Finally at peace with everybody

Detachment is a process  not arrived
at easily, when it happens ripened fruit
severs self from life’s tree readily

Connections


Connections

Currents currency
Nano seconds frequency
Touched in head, shocked
Dancing in ecstatic frenzy

Abandoned I was not
You stayed I strayed
Mindless, mindful
Now at peace, stay enfolded

Aberration


Aberration  

Worrying mental beads
I move in circles
Swaying constantly
On balls of my feet
Arms akimbo in grief

How could this happen
Why did heavens fall
On my forgetful head
Why did HE not chide as always
Insist on accompanying me

Worrying mental beads
Finger joints disjointed
In unhappy thoughts
Their red tips swollen
Worrying mental beads

Hem

Hem

Culturally hemmed

I hawed and chafed

at imposed restrictions

Breaking free one day

I lifted

The hem of novelty

Open mouthed and

Agape

I quietly tucked

In the straining neck

Of my curiosity

Retracting

Into the cocoon

Of my shell

Thorns

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched,
And those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people
Who have touched their lives ~ Anonymous

Thorns

Thorns of my hurts

I press close to my heart

Only share cheerful roses

For drooping spirits to buoy

And as these thorns dig deeper

And eke out blood from my tender

Breast, I realize they are my stigmata

Keeping me connected to the

Only ONE who ultimately matters
