Rise Of Sapphire Beauty

From the opaque depth of the dark space
rises the beguiling blue disc, half obscure,
of mother earth showing its gleamed face
to the cratered barren moonscape to lure
with sapphire beauty of common ancestry,
a saga in the chronicle of celestial history.

Amaranthine temptress
You - amaranthine temptress!
Pay attention for a sec.
Let's give it a hap,
Ad-lib like vagabonds on the road,
Rambling to dusk in a single step,
Just before the first stars
Appear in our eyes,
With Jupiter for you under the Moon, or
Ganging up with me...Read More

You're The Eternal Ocean

Engagement with thwarted life in existential primal crisis
searches experiential solution in life’s nebulous narrative.
With purgation of edgy emotions and clasping catharsis
hears the whispers of the inner invite of the divine ecstasy.

Cohesive complex sense of self, the crafted chronicle
epitomizing the dubious...Read More

Was Kilroy Here

There will be no carved monument
a notable nothings chisel to say “ Kilroy was here ”

Life On Sundial

I only tell of sunny hours…
For me the trail of time disappears
in the depth of darkness at sundown,
but my mind doesn’t harbor any qualm,
I dream drenched in stardust of stellar sky…
I’ll trace the blazing heliacal trail
across another dazzling day.

Let the...Read More

Twice the night had fallen upon a sleepless slumber,
Yet again awoken by winter when the third was three in number.

I sense that a silence doth sneak ‘tween cracks of weathered wood,
Conniving with that which shadows show to those whose senses...Read More

The twentieth century wrote through the eighties
My young mind marveled at how the pages were turning
Frayed memory still preserves them as a living treatise
Of times underscoring the arrival of the IT wave in...Read More

Chicken Coop Chronicle

In chicken coop, sustained by God
there she and six children did dwell
sometimes with such antics pell mell
to many appearing quite odd

Ancient blood of the cross stood
And the curtain broke into two

Oozing, leaving the inner tranquility,
Evicted, from the fracture of the shield,
Percolating, through the permeable covering
Accumulated, to the brim, running over and flowing.

Traversing, the fissures in impervious core
Collected, after the continuous downpour
Verbalising, the vehemence of my burbling
Emanated, from the, once desiccated,...Read More

A wince doth lurk wearing which wicked gaze,
Of conniving cast shadows ‘tween my windowpanes.

Gazing through the window’s diaphanous gelid glass, 
I see a flushing fluorescent misty haze of frothy brass.

It floats aloft the frost of the frigid Winter floor, 
Stirring...Read More

Hate is thys strongest endeavor,
And you have your greatest hold
On my essence,
Keeping me in the darkness of

And scorching,

Even my soul,
You left me your victim
Leaving an unescapable dismay 
And displeasure upon me.

Destiny - Infinity
There comes a time of no more morrows,
of no more smiles, and no more sorrows.
A time when time itself will be no more!

A Chronicle
life was presented
And all that it received;
A life placed on the balance
Of all that it achieved.

A Chronicle was written
Of all that was said and done;
And all the works were tested
And measured against the One.

The pages showed an image
Of the residue...Read More
