A is for Antenna 1

A  is for Antenna

A  is for Antenna, the two-in-one, receiving in and transmitting away.
B  is for Broadband, to fire away on the high speed  digital highway.
C  is for Current, what a beauty, it is all but  free- electron- flow.
D  is for decibel, not the horrible, but a logarithmic unit and a ratio.
E  is for Electrons, the teeny weeny charged particles, so light
F  is for Fibre, or simply glass that passes streams of bits as light.
G  is for Gain, could also mean loss, a measure of what’s in and what’s out.
H  is for Harmonics, often unwanted multiples that are up and about.
I  is for Ionosphere, the  upper reaches of appreciable ionization
J  is for Jitter, Who wants this unwanted, random fluctuation
K  is for Klystron, just a tube which, in the microwave range, oscillates
L  is for Limiter, thank God, the input to a system , it limits.
M  is for Modulation, a  wave-on -wave  super imposition
N  is for Noise, the hated disturbances due to heat’s action
O  is for Oscillators, they  are  from low to ultra high frequency 
P  is for Pulse, not of the heartbeat, but a quick  shot of energy.
Q  is for Quartz, the stabilizer that is piezo-electric
R  is  for Regeneration, recuperating-the- sick- signal- trick.
S  is for Semiconductors, not semi-precious, but indispensable
T  is for Transmission, making   communication finally possible,
U  is for Unlimited Plans, the veritable godsend for the customer
V  is for Voltage, the difference of potentials, one should remember.
W  is for Waves, electromagnetic waves not the ones in the ocean,
X  is for X-rays, against which the engineer should exercise caution
Y  is for Yagi,  it’s only an antenna, not a yogi or a tribal totem
Z  is for Zirconium,   hungry for neutrons in the context of atom.

That puts in a nutshell the revolution
Of electronics and communication.

Insects A to Z

A is for Ant, tiny but stout, they can lift fifty times their own weight,
B is for Bee, reaps nectar for honey; may opt to attack if made irate. 

C is for Cricket, chirps his best at night to attract stunning female, 
D is for Dragonfly, fast flier with two pairs of wings; strong not frail.  

E is for Earwig, type of beetle with a pair of pinchers on his belly,
F is for Fly; an ugly pest that invades picnics or anything smelly.

G is for Glow worm, lady of the night, turns on her light for her mate,
H is for Hornet; female ran colony, few males have right to date. 

I is for Inchworm, lack legs in body core causing a looping gait,
J is for June bug, beetle that swarms in June; starving toads seal their fate.  

K is for Kissing bug, sucks blood from the lips or face of unsuspected beasts,
L is for Lady bug, beauty to behold; tastes repulsive to say the least. 

M is for Mosquito, female pest that drinks blood, causes disease in return, 
N is for Nit, eggs of lice clinging to hair till hatched making itch a concern. 

O is for Owlfly, dragonfly-like but not related; with large bulging eyes,
P is for Praying mantis, takes praying pose before ensnaring lunch surprise. 

Q is for Queen Butterfly, close relative to Monarch, russet with black edge,
R is for Rice weevil, pest that lives inside grain; growing in the secured wedge. 

S is for Stink bug, releases foul smell from its thorax when alarmed,
T is for Tsetse fly, bloodsucking kin to house fly; a human host is harmed. 

U is for Underwing, heavy large moth that flies at night; hated garden pest,
V is for Vine borer, moth larva bore in squash vines; sweet insides they ingest. 

W is for Water bug, stores air in a void under his wings; walks on water,
X is for Xerces Blue Butterfly, first U.S. butterfly extinct by home slaughter.

Y is for Yellow plant bug; devastates plants by feeding on tasty plant sap,
Z is for Zebra butterfly, has striking stripes; creaks when he’s faced with a scrap.   

From A to Z there is a menagerie of insects sharing our lives,
some have become extinct but an infinite amount still survives.

Burning fire,
And solid rock,
Gas fuming,
Shooting and so hot,
Twinkling, I'm not.

I'm bursting flames,
of high degrees,
Moving clouds of methane,
And cold breeze.

Bluer that Earth's cloudless skies,
Questionable living,
And countless why's.
And wonders of my atmosphere,
Millions and billions of years,
Hundreds and thousands of orbits I've witnessed,
Like wood rings of living oak,
My burning gases,
That'll never smoke,

The New Birth

In the dark ages,
The world lay bare
With no care
In the inhabitants lives.
As time flies
So knowledge grows
From height 
To height till it springs
Something tangible.
Then a blessing and a 
Curse was conceived
Which bcame compatible
With the society,
A new society.
The new birth brought
Means of destruction
Of lives
And the creation
Of medium of easier
Movements like flying
In the air,moving
From one planet
To another planet
With measures costlier. 
An instrument of death
And life like two-edged
Sword,out of its sheath.
Your bearers are judged
As scientists with 
What intentions?
The savior of mankind?

Now That's Relativity

Astronomers behold celestial delights,
Endlessly finding glorious heavenly insights.
Joyfully keep learning more natural obscurities.
Previously quite routinely seen targets usually viewed with x-rays,
Yet zoomed in using Hubble Space Telescope, helps prove Einstein's Theory of Relativity!

A wish to break free from all the tensions and stress,

Pressure to perform or because of low marks distress,

Bombarding on the brain by parents and all teachers,

The soul of a science student is really much harassed.


A wish to break free from this monotonous schedule round the clock,

From college to tuitions and from tuitions back,

No time for self study, no time to get a grip,

The hectic schedule has all the capacity from the brain hacked.


A wish to break free from the rat race around,

The peer pressure and strain that continuously surround,

The fatal competition that burdens the soul,

Each moment living in fear of losing the ground.


A wish to break free from the inhumane touch,

Of those lecturers who don’t care as much,

As the ones who care but can’t be there,

To show support and encourage and all such.


A wish to break free from the wrongs happening in the world,

The laws and the rules working against certain student lot,

Adding to the already existing pressure on these tender minds,

Making the heads fuming and hot.


A wish to break free from the deep rooted ill logic,

Present in a subject that scatters all its magic,

The memorizing and roting that is so much required,

That makes the studying all the more tragic.


A wish to break free is the soul’s earnest cry,

A wish to break the barriers, to soar and to fly,

A wish to be science-minded individuals by choice, not by force,

And to be found some years hence, where our hearts lie…

mental illness

As a new day arises, you are once again faced with that trenched alarm bell.
You open your eyes to feelings of emotional turmoil in the pit of your stomach, a remembrance of this living hell. There are too many thoughts spawning in that very moment, paranoia and voices within the depths of your head.That leads to your irresponsibility and lack of motivation, it's much easier for you to pursue another day in bed.
You feel you have no one you can trust, no one who understands your pain, distress.
Opening up fully to others makes you look vulnerable, disconnected and an uncontrollable mess.
So you struggle on with life, stating your fine to those of whom should dare to ask.
But you know time is an essence of revealing the truth behind your hidden mask.
You try different interventions as a strategy of coping, one of many being selfharm.
But how long are you able to keep this up before others notice the scars on your arm.
So you turn to alcohol, drinking yourself in to oblivion, continuing through to the following day.
Until the hangover kicks in and you realise you've spent the greatest majority of your pay.
Unfortunately it's your last as you've lost it all, family, job, everything that you are. Such a constant reminder as you are the only one left sitting at the end of the bar.
Is there an escape from this, hope relishing somewhere beyond the dreaded fear. It doesn't seem to be the answer right now, all you can see in front of you is a fifteen pack of beer.
It's all you have left, the one thing you look forward to, your only friend. You keep telling yourself this as you battle to diminish thoughts of how this will all come to an end. You see the problem is you know too well, you've watched your father for years in a similar situation, now fate has taken over and you have inherited the same genetic predisposition. You tell yourself you've no hope, dreams orca positive future, whilst deciding to end it all, before jumping in to your car. If only you had sought help, services, treatment available, you may never have let it get this far.
Now your kids are left parentless, due to this painful disease of the mind. And it's the responsibility of others to pick up the pieces of everything you have left behind.
So u see mental illness cannot be seen and is one of the hardest disorders to mend.
But if we join together as a community, we can save the lives of others by finally putting the stigma to an end. ??

words in the wind

I send my words ,right through the wind
Hoping and Trusting
they shall fall right into your brain.
one day, like a rain, you came to me. 

One day, like a wind, i went away,
and there were times i came to you
for  you to speak of something,deep in your heart,
ahd how you made my heart a feather in wind.

How suddenly we parted,leaving each other unwared,untold
how we search of each other,everywhere
in this wild thicket of light
yet i know not where your sun shines

How i miss to see you again
upon a rock ,i lay my heart
to wait for that magical day
when my eyes will fall on you again

That will be the Day!
and never again will i send
my words in the wind for thee
and,like a farmer scans the skies with anxious eyes
i too wait for thee...........

A Glurmy Gleepcious Glorp

I plurm and glorp with every breath
My existence defies and deifies death

I splurp and glomph amongst your days
Indistinguishable from mud and haze
I slig and slorg, a dark breamy blaze
with unctuous vim I sleam through your days
and go about my large gorptious ways

Slimy, I slawl in shades of grey
leaving glossful drippings to mark my way
and make your life gang aft agley
as I spream and slorl in spurious ways
and glurm and gleep with hideous gaze
I sleam and glort in vorptious dark ways

‘Til you come undone
And my sporphing’s won!

My job’s complete – I’ve sprunked your flaze
My job is done, I’ve gronked your days!

We have to go down we have no choice...

so the blueprint was formed

"seeds everywhere".

propagation from space

interstellar dust

transfer vehicles

impact-expelled cells

extreme microorganisms ,heavy bombardment

our intentional spreading

life on Earth was a must

Beautiful meteorites, asteroids and rain that came down red...

"seeds everywhere".

you had to leave the home universe

bacterial spores in dormant states for while

then out you came over time

the deliberate transport of you in space, maybe designed by you

sent to Earth to start life over here because you had to...

Moon Mirror

The sun, going about her daily chores, 
glimpses a new star in the sky, 
one smaller than herself, 
yet strangely familiar.

Used to catching her image first in puddles, 
then growing larger in lakes, 
she at first only sees a stranger, 
then catches herself 

spread in the moon's reflection 
across thousands of miles of sky.
Hypnotized by the beauty 
of this strange new view of herself, 

she can't ignore it, 
sneaking looks time after time; 
she can't take her eyes off herself.
Daily, as the moon moves about in the sky, 

the sun catches tantalizing glimpses 
of herself from multiple angles. 
By then, the sun imagines herself to have 
the moon's full attention, 

claiming it as her mirror.
Like Snow White's wicked stepmother, 
the sun asks this mirror repeatedly, 
methodically, almost hypnotically, 

"Who is the fairest of them all?"
The moon answers all questions 
bringing the sun back time and again, 
puppet on a string 
seeking a definitive answer.

By day, the moon untangles 
its strings of moonlight, 
puts out its nets.

Their dialog moves sideways; 
the sun's questions, always direct, 
glance off the moon; 
the moon's answers slip around behind it 
as the sun tries to get a better look 
at what the moon might be saying.

Who was created in whose image? 
Which came first, 
the chicken, the egg, or the yolk, 
small sun caught up in the quicksilver lies 
of albumen?

Anthem (part one)

In a tunnel under earth, we were given a curse
In this world, we am called reverse
Eager to think and question
These things bring out nothing but aggression

We are one in all and all in one

Sent to the house of the street sweeper
Keep my thoughts from them, ill think deeper
In a subway we find the device
Must show the council word of advice

We are one in all and all in one

Like a whiff of pungent smoke
morality hurts.
The inner song dies
in chorus of sharp tongues.

Anger beats the wall
causes no beginning,
no ending.
A naked shadow burns.

The voice on the edge of truth
jumps in the dust of lies
like a firebird
bathes in immortal grief.

For deliverance from the depravity,
one who calls you a name.
How I longed to invoke
a time outside the space!

Hellow, Hallow-E'en

It’s almost midnight
On All Hallow’s Eve
And I’m here to seduce,
Entrance and deceive

Tonight I come calling,
a nightmarish creature –
You’ll cling to the stories
You’ve been told by your preachers

Who tell you that ghouls
Are all in the mind,
But watch out for my presence
Amongst man-unkind

Creeping and crawling,
I live for this night –
I’m a monster most hideous,
My first name is Fright

I’m the truth of your nightmares,
The terror is sheer
And scaring you senseless
Fills me with cheer
I’m the presence 
Who inhabits your dreams
I’m alive in your deep,
Darkest screams

I exist to appall you,
Immerse you in fear
And my day of wakening
Is now, it’s right here

This one night in autumn
I visit from hell
Where I have been watching you,
I know you quite well

I’ve waited so patiently
For this Halloween
So I can show you my real face,
Gaunt, slimy, green

When you first lay your eyes
On the terrible me,
You’ll know I’m black evil,
But won’t believe what you see
Shapeless and hopeless,
I do not exist
In the time-space continuum
In which you persist

I’m other-dimensional,
Invisible, huge
My lips aren’t quite white,
My cheeks smeared with rouge

My hair’s writhing reptiles,
My nails twisted and curled
My breath stinks of Hades –
I’m so not of your world

I slither through shadows,
I suck the life from your dreams
I slurp up your terror
And munch on your screams

You can shutter your windows
Padlock each door
You still won’t be safe –
I’ll rise up through your floor

At midnight, I’ll seize you
And drag you away –
You’ll never see the light
Of All Hallow’s Day

The city gets bright.
Will ivory moon plummet
into frothing sea?
Death is but a path,
stars collapse
universes shrink daily,
the Earth is in the center, 
then there are these crystal spheres
the sun
the moon
the planets and finally 
the celestial sphere,
where the stars are
and everything has a place.
Sometimes the darkest nights 
give rise to the brightest mornings.
The cosmos is also within us,
it will be music to our ears 
because it will be 
the quiet echo 
of that moment 
of our creation, 
of our observable universe.

Dark Arts

They steadily grow strong, they start to consume the soul. 
I cant tell right from wrong, this is becoming all I know. 
It gets from bad to worse, the written story of pain. 
I cant even converse, without seeming insane. 
It sucks away the light, to gain more strength. 
I start to lose the fight, and the will to live. 
Its a powerful force, who's power has no end. 
It starts it course, through the mind of human heads. 
Whats this force you say? These are The Dark Arts. 
Grovel before the name, as it slips into your heart.

Sweet Misery

You are the perfect example of what a man should be
Internally coded with intense sexuality
I don’t think for a minute you want to be just friends 
Your subtle gestures are just a mends for your situation
There is a reason you anchor to this crustacean 
You listen as if I'm teaching you the bible
And you need my lessons for survival
You perform as if you are my weight hand and foot
You bring me juices whose nectar makes my heart beat like Chinese percussion 
I know you probably be thinking, “Im’ma get me some!”
But not because you want to cum into me
Not because you’re not happy at home with wifey
But just because you are anchored by me metaphysically
And besides my poetry you don’t really know ME

Anthem (part two)

I come to you so humbly
But I have something to show we

Hear our plea it must be destroyed

The Divine Niche

The serene sound of the hymning bell,
The aromatic smoke casting a magical spell,
The ambiance always wishes us well,
Because its you in our heart who dwells,
The soothing hymn which fell,
Washed away all the cruel,
You became the sacred barrel.

Point of Black

Black, empty, cold and dark
What are you then if not a spark
Of life exists in you,
You pointless mass of infinity?

I don’t see you, yet I have thee in my sights
From some accretion disk or otherwise
Like a churning cauldron from some distant past.
My blood freezes in its paths

When I think of you, and your cruel existence
How you are void of all empathy,vice and insistence
To spaghettiize unwitting partners as in motion 
To capture them in a last gasp of elongation

You, you alone of all creation
are the most intense on my imagination
to look too close would surely be 
the very end of …. Me.

It is me, inside & outside, 
movement of sensuous self.
Time sails through the mind, 
a silken thread unbroken in names. 
If only the death would erase the fear. 
If only the other self meets my roots 
and stir up the inner sap.

Reaching the end, 
you tell me to remember
your name to latch on to memories, 
to collect all the pieces 
of conceptual loss & gains. 
How we were fooling ourselves? 
Nothing is left between us 
to celebrate the dreams.

All the stray thoughts 
could not give us insight
we were dusted off from start 
to finish in our loneliness. 
Once it was a glory 
to watch carnations in our eyes, 
now I am mourning the death of calenders.
