Looking at the reflection of his face in the mirror
Asking himself through his eyes with silent words

a dreamy journey
A dreaming journeys
  A leaf floats down a river
 It never made a decision

Back to the future?
No, I have been there now
We are going to the future.
From afar the leaf hear

Father's Day
"If I said the word, “day”,
Nothing special you would say

24 hours that we keep,
Just one of seven that make our week

But if you look deep inside,
That’s  where dreams reside

And opportunities, and a wish,
Memories of those we miss

If we dress...Read More

Fathers Day

They came in the grey
of that fractured dawn.
Those sombre men
in mourning suits.

Platitudinous and
ruthlessly efficient
they took him away
in an anonymous bag

Our childhood Everest,
shrunken now
to common size.

Incomprehension muttered
behind our eyes,
minds locked, quarantined
from the mundane.

A lesser day dawned
empty and reduced
haunted by...Read More

Then I do not choose to be categorized and placed in a box by the norms of society.

It is my choice to level up, and exhaust all possibilities while paving new roads.

The way this day carries on, one might think
it invalid, paralyzed from neck down,
wheelchair bound, unable to roll around
or speak more than “yes” or “no” via blink.
Or, maybe it wishes for not to sink,
but to shadow itself to a moonless...Read More

Premium Member In My Father's Hands
A piece of waiting clay adapts
To a sculptor's finite stroke,
Infants heads were shaped by hands
Of older thinking folk.

Eight times a molder in his chair,
A newborn child held near.
Tiny heads-so softly stroked,
By my father's hands so dear.

A memory like yesterday,
Though ...Read More

Oh Father
Oh Father!
A man full of fun and laughter.
Endowed with magnanimous heart
As big as the earth.

Your blazing words
Left indelible impression on my memory.
You aren't a hero known by the world,
But a legend that live in my memory.

Oh Father!

Dad- Father's PDay

When I first started school, we
went to the store to buy pencils
and such.
These were days when stores were 
very small,  and a customer meant 
so very much.
The shiny gold pencils stood proudly 
were in a tall glass jar.

Bless be the fathers 
Who provide life’s wonders
To their families without blunders

Always making the needed sacrifices
Never tiring, never relenting
Ever giving, ever loving
Touching our lives with love
Lifting our hopes
Causing our hearts to move 
And our feets to dance...Read More

One moment in time
