IN Custody

A beautiful couplet
took my breath away
Trying to translate its exquisite nuances
Is keeping me awake….
….

Taking each literal word
in my mouth I let
it melt ….an ice cube astride a neat shot
Giving me a natural euphoric high…..
….

besotted by it’s
gorgeousness I’ve arrived
At a poetic impasse..that neither lets me
move forward nor backwards as I playfully
….

Continue fawning, wooing each nuance with my
tongue bordering on the risqué fully in it’s embrace
As if it were a writhing physical
being in throes of petit morts
…..

clouds have
manhandled
toothless sun
cowering behind
shorn trees, houses
glory days
come
go
Sun’s day
will
also
come
I
sure
hope
so!

awareness ii


I see you
In the air I breathe
In middle of my forehead

In sudden change of wind
In secret dreams
In blatant displays

As parallel reality
As alternate altered life
In thrum of the universe

In the ghats of Banaras
In swaying Vrindavan i.e my heart
In the marrow of bones

In ebb and flow of my veins
In neurons, interstices in my brain
In Aarti’s fragrance during before after

In aroma of cooking
In all the risen senses
In all the awakened thoughts

In all the expressed longings
In the jolts of thunder
In bolts of lightening

In the sunsets splashing
In the tentative spreads of dawn
In rush of joy holding newborn babies

In the lushness of rainforests
In the Grand Canyons of nature
In the trails taken, longed for

In the hush of soul
In the catch of breath
In liquid pools of canine eyes

In the twinning of minds
In bonding and severance
In yin and yang

In twilight’s possibilities
In velvety dark night
In quiet of early predawn

In slow awakenings of backyard
In hum of traffic in forefront

I see you

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in wonderland
persona
takes leaps
of faith –
….treading time
in centuries
old place(s)
tracing
mind’s fingers…
with deja vu
moments
akin
to effervescent
feet
dancing
on graves
……
I return
with
more questions
egged
on
by unbridled
curiosity
Usually
as
take
aways
