I wrote this poem with a life buoy
Sharing a thought
Is not best spoken in a passionate language
It is not best written on an aesthetic scroll
It is best conveyed in poetry

As my ink spills I can’t float
I find myself almost submerged in my verbose outrage
I hang on to...Read More

Writing till I am out of ink
When I feel empty
And the world gets hefty
I write to fill up the emptiness

When the truth is like a mystery
Explained by a spiritual verity
I write to remember the truth

When joy is too short for revelry
Lurking by the corners is misery

Would not mind being caught in middle,
Of serenade played on violin or a fiddle;
People dancing;
Others romancing;
Thanked God for receiving an acquittal.

To be alive and be able to write beyond platitudes.

God Is Glorious While Calling Us

While He has been glorious, 
God can always call all of us,
And realized,
Plagiarized,
Even if sinner or a sourpuss.

The Storm Unleashed
The storm unleashed
Rages on;
The sound and fury
Instils fear.
Where are the seafarers?
Those standing on the beach ask  
Without urgency to know.

Let us peer beyond the darkness
That is spreading wide
And dreamily run our fingers
In the wet sand;
There...Read More
