The sea sets free...

Trying to land here upon my buttock,

Lazing naked in my garden hammock.

birds of a quill, or a feather
flock together at odd times
from all four corners
of thinking creative
to jostle with keyboards,
pens and sharp pencils
fingers fidget, tap-tapping
frantic scribbling...

In a voyage through pain
I lost my homing instincts
I'm trapped in the claws of sadness
Smothering on sorrowful violin strings
Heart not at peace
But broken into piece'

Premium Member Singularity



Inside news beyond
Hopes dashed
No pieces left
For times elbow
Holds no crutch





Feelings enmeshed
Scrounged within
The numbness subsides
Leaving delight
Past the darkest night





Singed to the bone
Being lost
Without deaths glow
But hope...

My Life

Warming up, the weather 
In middle spring 
Grass dancing  and larks  singing
Lilacs white, purple and  mottle 
are walking on road 

2. Going Home

Road is really long 
Coach moves too slow 
The homing heart feels like 
either a flying goose
or a flying arrow 

3. Fly a kite 

My busy shadows chained 
Langfang ,Baoding and Beijing 
up into a triangle 
God saw  and said :
That looked  like a kite 
The rope was the 
long thinking of
Held  in Mr Sydney's hand 

Note: My home is in...

Of dark fears
You come back to perch on me
As if a friendly company
You dark shadow of my fears
Wherever I leave your remains
You're an undying, homing pidgeon

His thick-soled hiking shoes
tread too loudly
to celebrate time's homing invitation

feel and smell resonantly hidden diversity
within spirit's wooded ridge.

Which are your points for living
if we all die into cold leaky stink or ash anyway?
What's the point of dying
if we could otherwise live continuously?

Setting sun 1
Setting sun

Splash of burgundy paan-spit
and the paterfamilias nodding off

pink  filial freeness
silhouetted against a crimson feel- flare
(or was it orange flair or even purple fair)

In a Coastal Town
World shifts, the air thins
In a coastal town... 
slatted blinds, every hue from
Warm reds to harsher blues
Hardwired to heaven
Homing instinct with
Different wavelengths
Sunlight scatters

They're more elusive

The child is dragging her coat brim;
On father’s broad shoulders,
I am still weak and young.
