SOCIAL DISTANCE
Unity first is a high command
But it’s now in big demand

Breaking peace into many pieces 
In search of money going to ashes

People to people in separation like banks not as bridges

God sometimes getting anger like Men
At disobeying even his single...Read More

Premium Member How Are You So Special To Me
How are you so special to me?
The answer is short and simple.
Every action has its symbol
Along with the language you use
And that painful hidden scar and bruise.
That’s how you’re so special to me

How are you so special to me?

Here is a symbol of my lasting love, 
no longer shall you ever thirst again. 
For I sent my only Son, from above, 
and by your hand, he was brutally slain. 
A new covenant was formed through his pain,

She Wears a Pine Tree on Her Sweater
She wears a pine tree on her sweater,
her skirt is the green of the valley,
gray hair done up in long braids,
she is someone's grandma who
has seen a few miles as her wrinkles show,
a woman who has kept her glow.

She wears...Read More

Premium Member Well Penned, I Hope
Would my poetry improve if I used a posh pen
A fountain or quill, as was used back when
People took pride in all that they did
Not like these days, anything for a quid
Where are the inkwells that adorned a poets table

Flickering flash of brightness
Around my beloved Mizar,
Millions years of togetherness 
In love he whispers ‘Alcor!’
On a dark night up in the sky,
Just look up towards North,
You see the Polaris if you try,
To guide you to our hearth!

Premium Member Canada's Icon


Farts: an expression of our most inner thoughts
Can't get more sincere, than toots from apricots 
Fruity smelling at best
Like a beaver over stressed
Canada's national symbol, hard-working knobs

Water Poem
Fluid sometimes hot sometime cold
You have been and existed on the planet
For billions of years we are told. One can 
Only guess the number of years old.

You represent the symbol of freedom 
And peacefulness for how freely you
Flow when there...Read More

Silence
SILENCE 


Why does Silence always precede storm
Why does it preexist before a person sob
And when he annihilates

Why does it rule above the Earth, in Heavens 
Why does it show, beneath the Earth, its presence
And prevails in the deep dark oceans

Premium Member Nature Rebirths Spring

I love the beauty of a new spring day-
   its early morning silence- but for birds
      that tweet and flutter, flying with dry straw
or thread to line their beautiful new nests.

My hair, caressed...Read More

Segmented straight lines configure

In numeral sequence from the top
it’s the second smallest even integer.

when the arch of cosmos needed light,
God created sun, moon and all the stars
on this day, the...Read More

Angel Light
I stood in awe as she alighted like a bird upon some branch,
Belisha beacon to the abyss bound  clochard.
Bonfire for uncanny scion  adrift,
 ignited by her
incandescent eyes.
Chanteuse  of Arcadia  on song and sound.
Halo at the crossroads,...Read More

Gender Equality
A woman shows her body, with confidence.
But gets called such negativity.
A man shows his body, and there's dominance.
So society speaks positivity.

A woman can have more experience.
But the income is less than her counterparts.
A man can be brand new and live...Read More

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.
