Baking, broiling, blindingly bright, blistering sun,

The kabob that is my body searing, skewered

Over scorching, sweltering, sizzling sand.

Deceptively blue skies devoid of any deliverance,

No cavalry of clouds coming to convey compassion.

Rising balloon-like bubbles of hot air

Causing distant objects to ripple and...Read More

Whom shall I tell my tale of woes?
who shall sing with me 
my song of oblivion
the evil that descended hearth-stead,
in the tail of a winter night,
swooped upon us like a bald eagle,
as vicious as a hungry wolf,

Mint: "a variable color averaging a light green that is bluer and stronger than variscite green and paler and very slightly yellower than serpentine"

Our Moses
Take me high 
On the mountain top
Please do and do
Before this wind leads me down.

Life oh life,
Joy today, sorrow tomorrow.
That the village people get the credit.
Non knows when to be freed from

This dungeon we're made to be.
Even the sacred is...Read More

Premium Member Occasional puffs of wind
Green patches
of lawn
surrounded by
flurries of leaves
demarcation lines
peace zones
Occasional puffs of wind
light, easy, unhurried
scatter a few stragglers --
swept along
a couple or three meters
then still
at rest again
they await last rites...

Sanctuary
Rest in the sanctuary
The sanctuary of stillness within cold
Frames of stained glass windows
Shining a dim light
Illuminating an altar of sacrifice
Dead trees glisten with tear drops
Falling outside the window
Cascading leaves fly inside
Beautifully melting to wax as I lie
On the altar dying...Read More

The wind chaser
I want the earth in my hand, 
I need a house in aso.
For the great sea serpents and land
They all shall come to bow, 
I wish i could ride in night, 
And build a house in cloud.


My wealth shall reach...Read More

Pre-dawn morn
snow blankets the ground
under its cover
fast asleep...
Well, hello, Mr. Sun
and welcome!
Smile, sparkle and shine
on spotless white lawns...
Aha! The first tear in the fabric
a clump of grass pops up
each green blade like a baby robin
yearning for Mother Bird's return
Only these...Read More

Royally draped over a soft cushion
hugging a soft, fluffy white carpet
her gaze wanders 
to the flickering images
on the TV screen
before her...
abruptly transfixed
rocking on her haunches now
her eyes darting back and forth
as if at a ping-pong match...
she tenses now
back arched
hints at...Read More

she hands over the moon
the sun's nudges neatly 
into the morning
between the pavement cracks
a bright red wild strawberry struggles

“come buy!” “come buy!”

smell of particulates 
mixed with fruitful abundance 

a soiled wet mattress topper
which she shares with the street

END OF THE DAY
END  OF  THE DAY



Another evening void
Of friends or lovers
Ending in the well lit 
Road silent down
To the gut bridge
No cats no traffic
Tarmac surface curving
Down and right
Lots of space without movement
Windows unlit doors unopen
Belisha beacon invites
Its call unanswered
Beer can...Read More

Elegant portico columns, fireplace frame
Fronting tasteful, demure white walls
Rich browns -- pianoforte, armchair
Muted ostentation, classicism bespoken --
the eye startled, struck
by the clear glass vase 
on the mantel
stems ascending 
to bold-green leaves
slightly upturned
as are firm, youthful breasts
topped by brilliant bursts
of pink-streaked...Read More

It happened that time
it happened that time
the sun lost its path
inside cotton wool of the sky
and it never rose again
the moon drowned
into the abyss of the pacific
and it never shone again
each star lost its one eye
struggling to light the sky
and disappeared forever

Somewhere and Where I must
I left my soul in the valley,
Alone he wanders, alone he seeks, in solitude he hopes,
He awaits my return,
That we shall someday be one again.

To nowhere, from where I came, and I must...Read More

divide the two

thus making different what he sought to accomplish
