Folk Tale

tidy yarn woven
neatly spliced with home spun charm
gilded tapestry

On Poetry and Prose

A bridge from colloquial to courtly 
fare
A span where idealism and fantasy 
pair
A railway to the existential realm; 
celestial lair 
A conduit through which rational 
discourse can flare

Deep medium to: forage, inculcate, 
and inform
Broad brush to paint rare beauty; 
sculpt surrealistic form
Incisive scalpel to surgically alter 
the societal norm
Delicate utensil to educate on 
civility and decorum 

A literary organ; a prosaic construct
A mechanism our syntax to 
deconstruct
An analytical tool; an observational 
viaduct
Introspective milieu to reduct; 
extrovertive sphere to reconstruct

A semantical edifice that aspiring 
wit, lofty orations implore
An experimental structure 
gramatical anomalies to explore
A thematic repository in which 
concrete ideas, abstract notions to 
pour
A vernacular cathedral butressed by 
an idiomatic core

Scion of Wisdom

       
A sage with wisdom so erudite
Muse filtering hope, shedding light
Mentor whose keen insight doth shape, mold
Dr Ram's words are better than gold

Twining cultures with his harmonious pen
Idioms, aphorisms from his native kin
With adopted truisms, symbols doth fold
Dr Ram's words are better than gold

Verses sculpted with cunning concision
Accents, rhymes spliced with stunning precision
Crafty metaphors, metonymies freely doled
Dr Ram's words are better than gold

Song of Solomon: Queen of my Heart

Covered bridge sheltering frothy lagoon
Woven tapestry gilding each silted dune
Garnished threads over polished diadem doth croon
Fabricated ensemble breaching pristine medley, emitting swaggering tune 
A treasured grove; each branch artfully hewn
A regal polish smoothly layered on a well-crafted spoon
   
Scented laces nestling in furrowed moon
Binding corset ballasting each milky balloon 
Red velvet gown swaddling paps so roon
Silver, monogrammed broach cresting over satin plume
Golden necklace the antechamber doth groom
Lilac perfume from each tendered Liily doth fume

Plowing through the quilted morass so carefully strewn
O'er snowy plain with sculpting touches tenderly prune
Nurturing each crevice; in your fecund valley swoon
Watching in rapturous chorus each mound bloom  
With fertile lips I pollinate each riveted loom  
From each rendered nipple a sweet nectar I exhume

Moribund Mirage

vast arid desert
cold solitary existence
plush silky sand dunes

Walk of Shame

Starlets tender their heralded names
Just another pretty face; another superficial dame
Brokered pawns in tawdry, transparent game 
Bartered tinder is their trite acclaim
Stars that twinkled then imploded in combustible flame
Fickle lives; filthy lucre their singular aim
Pleasing the masses with articial drama their claim to fame
Egotistical debutantes who proudly gilded their shame
Fealty and familial bonds with pleasure they did cripple, mame
Fading memories that inspired more of the same
Burnished symbols remembered only by their surname

Jaded Trail

Blithe fools traipsing through bleary hollow 
Airy sprites in hovering tents shadow
Brooding sylvan fringe shrouding light with her swaying willow
Jaded beams peep through the crenelated steeple's window
Sprouting thickets bristling with spiny tendrils each step harrow
Creepy vermin frenetically scurry under foot from burrow to 
burrow
A musty dampness shivers intruders; beneath feet liken's slimy 
residual doth grow  
Whistling winds hauntingly whisper a doleful strain 
Ominous portent overhead; hoot owls continuously bleet their eerie 
refrain
Perilous pitfalls surround; ensnaring cracks, crevices unwitting lives 
drain
Poisonous foliage ensconses the beaten path distilled with its 
potion of pain
Jagged course nearly run; wayfarers enlightened by each 
cumbersome travail 
Weary itinerants seasoned on nature's, menacing plain
Pensively treading the last mile over the rough, foreboding terrain

Fawning Meadow

Nature's, anesthetizing beauty held 
tightly in escrow
'Til on tendered form its heavenly 
charm can bestow

Fair maiden strides through 
manicured meadow
In her lovely essence, the enchanted 
flora doth wallow

Overhead, azure canvas paints a 
regal halo
Her satin cheeks radiant in Helios's 
afterglow

Beneath, green clover spreads its 
downy pillow
Her dainty feet tenderly the svelte 
blades furrow

Lilac strands their fragrant 
essence strew
As her ebony locks in soothing 
breeze flow

White, silken lillies fringe the 
bristling undertow
Roon paps gild voluptuous, damsel's, 
milky tallow

Twirling dandelions their feathery 
dander billow
Maiden's silted bosom takes a 
respite under fawning willow

Creamy buttercups in the noonday 
heat their hearth's mellow
In their steamy shadow, frothy 
maiden spreads her umbrella

Path Through Time

Warn path through time
Covered with nettles and thyme
Sprinkled with relics sublime
Sated with memories from my prime
Bridges crossed, harbored mined
Valleys forged, mountains climbed
Rivers forded, hollows divined
Peaceful pastures forever pined
Showered blessings o'er charted course
Thunderous trials skirted with every resource
Shining beacons along the road did hope reinforce
Clouded dreams abandoned with some remorse
Now channeling through life's narrowing pass
Peering longingly back at the quilted morass

Twas the Night Before the Wedding

Twas the night before my cousin's 
wedding
He reluctantly gave in to the 
bachelor party vetting
A burlesque, tawdry strip club was 
the setting
Unbeknownst to him, the bridesmaid 
was his appetite whetting
With gratuitous lap dance, began 
the ribald feting
In drunken stupor, the enamored 
groom his fealty forgetting
Released his inhibitions all of his 
clingy garments shedding
Strode platform, in sync with 
bridesmaids erotic moves duetting
In tantric rhapsody, she released 
pheromones his testosterone 
subletting
Enraptured with his riposte jaunts, 
her matrimonial bond shredding
The enamored bridesmaid with lust 
his bare essentials began petting
His betrothed parts to her 
dominatrix will indebting
As the groom climaxed, his phallus 
got entangled in her fish netting
Two truant souls now writhing; 
spent body parts bloodletting
Dislodging their carnal chains, into 
frothy night jetting
To hotel that lodged devoted bride; 
their remaining passions bedding
 Lurid, tawdry tryst not regretting; 
but o'er bawdy exhibition sweating
