Rich sunburst
Lying in a heap
Shaped as mouth
Searing fat red
Joss sticks !

War

At war with self
Fighting jet lag
Spirit sags
Hunger pangs
Pain everywhere
Body being summarily
Put through rigors
Of ruthless pressure
Points, massages
Kneading by curt
Pairs of hands
Severity being
The byword even
As I bite back
Painful yelps
Half hearted
Cries- they keep
On mete(ing)
What they’ve
Been trained
To do, give pain
For greater good
For my body and
For what’s in my
Mind’s bag!

Feathery touch
Will o wisp whimsy
Light swish of brush
A thing of beauty
Autumnal color-

 

clown

crowds
having finally
gone
guard down
real tears
washed
face of clown
not every day
is make believe
heart is after all
a heart, emotionally
starved
broke
down

Light cuts through nature, life’s weaves
Ever spreading sieving in exquisite
Filigree

Heart continues to follow
suit sieving home truths
For salvaging palatable tid bits
As shaking head indulgently
smiles at my life long childish
Pander to ostrich syndrome

How else do I survive this trigger happy life?
