unleashed

pandora’s box
has gradually released
sleeper furies hibernating
under rocks…..
~
sudden feeling
of choking
has taken
hold

vagabond spirt is chomping
harder at the bit being
that Roman gypsy longing
for amiable shores
~

ever fixated

Ever
fixated
never veering
My thoughts
Stay firmly
Tethered
To
You

romancing words yet again

romancing words
i lovingly fondle them
as if they were pleasing
surfaces of my favorite
old stone from Ireland
that I fondly pocket carry
~
giddy joy and love I’ve
spilt once too many..now am
mastering art of containment
as ones I wish to indulge court
are way too young..alas villain
age disallows further tarry…
~
entering inner sanctuary
I make peace with past laments
laying to rest pet peeves’ torment
squaring off life dealt equations
avowing to be sufficient unto self
for final verse : untethering my soul …

Distant Silhouettes

Journeys made
Some by free will
Few involuntarily
~

Picture book Prague
Hurled me backwards
Tilted to fairytale magic
~

At the banks
Of holy river Ganges
Spirit down cast, buoyed
~

Ashes immersion
God speed farewells
life’s finale
~

Ancient cities’ souks
Cobblestoned streets
Marching time, stilled
~

Single universal heart
Strongly beating in tandem
With waves, sands falling
~

Distant silhouettes stationary
Nature’s frozen music is that
Perfect journey undertaken within
~

Acceptance for what is, is unquestionably…..
~

mixed nuts

From a family
of mixed nuts
this face
often
takes
me
aback
