New Poems

Sealed from Human Eyes
Sealed from human eyes,
Veiled in shawls of the mist - 
Like the Arabian lady so shy...

All standing together,
Never far from each other,
Always holding hands...

The deer, the river, the pines,
In a perfect life so wild,
Its jewel of peace survives...

Mother nature thrives,
Within...Read More

Rush,a big rush
Corner to corner why this rush?

Here and there Corona virus 

World’s where the most rush
Sea of heads like fire bush 
Noses put on bad shape hush,hush

Life guaranteed
But not a user friendly

Premium Member Innocent Children are the Largest Victims
No blood would ooze out if cut by blade
No flesh below to sink, nothing inside shakes
Bare bones protruding here and there like spikes
Vacant look in the eyes
Yet the body breathes and survives;
Skeleton like children of Somalia, one of the African...Read More

Premium Member Defining Friendship - Expanded
Does it mean we are friends if I mirror your thoughts,
That we like the same jokes or our politics sing
A conventional melody?

Does the ground shake (we stand on) when boundaries slip,
When emotional dams burst, magnetic fields flip
As convection cells drift...Read More

Premium Member The Casualness Of Casualties

In the intimate interlace of chance and fate, in the ultimate interplay of time and place, and with the consummate checkmate of my human dignity, all that is -- is over, in the stormy, swarming space of mere moments.

TIDES
A certain surge wells up in me,
A nebulous , desultory void
It dwells in me, it survives off me.
I'm sequestered and I can't avoid.

My tongue bleeds of the unsaid,
My heart tears of the unfelt.
My soul rips of the untouched.
And my breath...Read More

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man who had nine lives,
He said he'd pinched them from his cat,
Who didn't look too good, at that,
Maybe its love of mice survives....Read More

Soul Power

That's what we need

A smell of flowers

Love's the air we breathe


A Natural Being

As a river flows

Down the stream

Into the sea we go


A Soul Heart

That laughs and cries

One that bleeds

Yet for love survives


A Sun Smile

Shining thru your eyes

A new beginning

A WISH FOR ALL FISH

Washed up on shores around the world
Already dead, a whale, a dolphin a shark, 
All marine life is suffering, the situation
Has become absurd, 
The facts real and stark!

The Pink City


At the edge of the Thar desert,
the reposed stilled sands made
petrified waves of dunes buried 
in the carved rocky pediment 
of the rolling train of Aravalli hills.
The meandering contours of 
the undulating landscape topography
shaped the cradle of this ancient city.

Those who distribute the wealth 
end up keeping it for themselves.
Misery is equal amongst the masses
Dare to disagree with the authority
you will be reducated until compliant

A Stranger and a Friend
A shadow, nay, sullen thunderhead 
inducing a deluge of emotions 
moved across thousands of darkened souls

Freaks, stoners
shy, smart
geeks and loners
outcasts with dreams and compassion in their heart

Strangers like me

To us, you were a friend
we live vicariously through words we couldn't...Read More

Bliss At The Journey's End



A sand grain of quartz sprawls on desert dune,
listens to the scorching whistle of the arid wind,
sliding down the steep slope waltzes to its tune.
Face burnished, it doesn’t mind the falling grind.

It reposes in new found niche of subtle solitude,

The night before Christmas
It was the night before Christmas, and all through D.C.
Not a creature was stirring except, for a flea.
The dems got their Christmas wish, the president got impeached
Oh, wait a minute the articles to the senate haven't been reached.

Christ is still in Christmas

Faith for many survives

Science, though gaining
followers, has yet to raise
who dies…

believers call it a miracle

detractors call it lies

for me, less a 
question of
right and wrong
but of who feels loved
for blest

praising less the one

I Am Envious of the Sky Bird
It all began one afternoon

The ground was hot and the world seemed bounded
But up the sky the boastful sky bird glided gaily
Enjoying the boundless splendour of the universe
Huh! If only I had wings like that bird!
The bird heard me, swooped...Read More

A child scratches a spacecraft in the dust,
He does not call it a 'spacecraft'
because it is 1911. The Colt Firearm Company
has patented the first reliable semi-automatic pistol;
it does not look like any other handgun.
Decades earlier, Karl Drais invents
the meat-chopping machine.

When I am broken dear Lord you carry me,
hold me and protect me from life's storm;
