The Nightriders

Under the spectrum of chameleon sky
the transiting sun shines deceptively
on the masked faces of ingenious craft, 
walk you enticed on blind garden path.

In the dense night of broken dreams
you don’t hear their footfall of silence.
Their sneaky eyes probe to consume

Pain of Love
when the heart cracks
the whole body trembles in disguise
When a heart breaks
only tears glue broken pieces
it is a spear pierced in the middle of a life

I now know the kicks of love
that has no defence
the tricks and pain of love

cryptic calls

The night called out to him
A man of plane fleet
Gloved in illusion of machete and strength
To beat out from the web of sleep
And answer the howling cryptic calls:

Cryptic calls of hooting owls and chirping crickets
Cryptic calls with lurid eyes...Read More

Ode to self
Wine tears
Flowing through the contours of cheeks
To reach these valleys residing in heart
Let the echo jump into this abyss
Until it reverberates like a suicidal cry
And breaks like a rope 
Adamant on giving second chance to life
Cloud covered skin
Akin to those...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul XLII
Ms. Sunshine,

In and out, in and out
hovers of infinity
flickers, a pale moonlight

firefly flight with the gift of sight

out and in, out and in
changing without 
challangeing within

a chameleon entrusted 
to rearrange
you say, you stay
the wild your prey

Gliding in glory, seizing life’s design,
chameleon clouds create one fine noon-
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine,
I hear their gale drifting into a tune.

dusk slides into night with comfort and ease-
I hear their gale drifting into...Read More

Premium Member Being Type A
So many things that we want to get perfect.
But it does not happen. 
Some deal with this all right.
The professional chameleons do.
The Type A’s are not as lucky.
Wanting to control things.
Losing it when things do not go their way.
Some do...Read More

Opaque People

I’ve never been where they’ve been,
chasing mirage in desert storm.
I look into their still eyes,
see their vision transfixed on illusion,
the shroud of dust spreads on sneaky people.
The gleam of oasis out of their sight,
they lie on wasteland like shadows of...Read More

Premium Member A Winter's Eve Drive Home

The snow 
covered ground
accentuated chameleon
leaves quietly hanging
from stoic branches
of proud trees piercing
chilling spaces
of the coming eve.

Above in the cold
silhouetted sky
the coming full moon
briefly peeked out
before the slow passing
of dark veiling clouds.

Below, a snaking trail
of red lights
made their slow crawl
across this...Read More

Stalled Beginning…Beautiful Ending

Like a stalled car
with engine running,

I sat there waiting
to go somewhere.

A tingling bumped
my consciousness;
I became aware
my blank foot-brake
was resting
on my mind’s pad.

Premium Member A Squirrel's Message

Like a living statue, the age-old tree
stoically stood there—anchored
and silently growing in majestic being.

At the tree trunk’s ground level, stood
a tiny squirrel—the happiest
of its anchored tenants—manipulating
its prized find with animal dexterity
mimicking that of a seasoned magician.

Suddenly, like an elevator running

Your everchanging hue,
The chameleon inside of you
All the black and the blue

Your sand and your shore
Your today and tomorrow

Music of deception flows
Flipped faces metamorphose
In chameleon jamboree
I dance with me.

Now that our modest president is calling

with prophetic certainty, if reelected,

Mid-autumn moon
Lanterns and lovers;
Moon cake serenade


Creative streak
Mood swings hurl;
Curl of night wind


Note book page
Await ink stains;
Splurge of verse


Joy hides
Sad sorrow wets;
Surge of feelings


Change renovates
New situation curls;
Profound sensations


Chameleon strays
Path of no return;
Another death stroke


Full moon tonight
A festive air here;
Custom attends


Stray breeze...Read More
