A goodbye to royalty

A goodbye to royalty

Dwindling spot of light
sinking in the skies
Ebb of the sun’s rays
  
Wane moon rises high
Dribble of silver oozing
a stream runs through night
  
Reflux of the breeze
Bubbles of air in river
Flow of the current
  
Three weave the stories
Their fingers points of flux gush
with oncoming rush
  
The stars now retreat
The winds drop on rising tides
The throngs flood the gates
  
Drift in the bees’ hive
A goodbye to royalty
stages in decay

On the road to redemption

On the road to redemption

21 September 2018

 

Heavens’ bloom coughed mirth

Opposites struck many deals

Kindred spirits waned

 

Memories clung tight

On the road to redemption

Moonlight composed odes

 

Fierce energies collided

Futures vanished with no trace

Horizons were shorn

 

Heady scents lingered

On the road to redemption

Knees resisted weight

 

Words pricked my eardrums

Dreams of tomorrow caught up

Thoughts’ speed was worthless

 

Bluebells hung their head

On the road to redemption

Castles vanished fast

Wrapping up

Tying the loose ends

In firm knots

They align

Their drooping figures a sign

Of the oncoming

 

Move further

The day’s labour calls

Diligent

Hands obey

Scales for the future they weigh

Disappearing mass

 

The sun sets

On valleys that sway

In tall homes

Preachers pray

Their rosaries a staircase

Between me and I

 

The night breathes

The scent of days churned

Through fingers

Still counting

The total bill amounting

To gate keeper’s fee

 

I fly lone

Through sunrise within

Moon and sun

Face to face

See me through deepest disgrace

Until I reach skies

 

The journey

Carries me through clouds

White and pure

Like his shrouds

He is King of my castle

His light my Kingdom

Ghostly trace

Of a million sighs

Painstaking

Bleak efforts

Toppling over heart denies

As the Earth rumbles

 

Small pittance

The remains of hay

Thrashed over

Wane thresholds

Thunder starts stomachs grumble

Craving grains of wheat

 

Dark castles

They prepare red soils

Fertilized

With the spoils

The heads to one side tumble

Precision in cut

 

Lost the day

When future was bright

The choices

Follow fork

Right or left no in between

Twin future unseen

 

Turn around

Time flows up and down

The middle

A loophole

Breathing space from where we stole

New moratorium

 

White castles

Contrasting landscapes

From bosom

Sigh escapes

For the narrow encounters

Brink of destruction

Angel of Sorrow – Arcana

Losing touch

Losing touch

4-5 April 2016

Caring much

Flames in heart a pyre

Soul outlet

Part regret

Equal portions of the two

The fear, the desire

 

Climb higher

Mountains may have peaks

Yet they stare

Into clouds

Solace a vision of shrouds

On heavenly frame

 

Call my name

In whirling waters

Abyss stares

Into skies

In between a string of lies

Man-made disasters

 

I fly free

The heart in throbbing

Holds the key

To kingdoms

There are castles in the air

Between mind and flair

 

Implosion

Internal order

Aligned streams

Path of dreams

The world less than what it seems

Dissolving matter

 

Rays scatter

Remnants of the fear

Scorching suns

Raise the bar

Feet walking on liquid tar

Roads of redemption

 

Losing touch

Recollections void

Nothingness

A slow spin

Neither lose nor ever win

Souls in between worlds

New found memories

Strike a chord in my heart’s lines

Gathering pieces

 

 

Yesterday’s pride spent

Remembering the playgrounds

Brings thoughts of penance

Nymphs circled around

Clamouring for your presence

Emblem of beauty

 

 

Playful happenings

Jaded other waters swirled

A backdrop of rain

Perhaps they will yet

Within Indian summer’s shade

Raise Love’s pedestal

 

 

Dance to beat of life

Mea culpa is the spin

Blue red purity

Two freedoms entwine

Take the pulse of winds’ movements

Shattering waters

 

 

In sands of Time plunge

Discover the miracles

Find the light of one

Implosion of the senses

Colours my love’s trail

Twirling, dissolving

Within the Eye of the storm

Resurrection green

 

 

Giant leap of faith

Diamonds birth from the pressure

Winds of Love carry

A kiss into Light

Within darkness of woodlands

Twin becomes the flight

 

 

Mythical creatures

Blue freedom on winds of Love

Dance of unicorns

Into light’s stillness

Within mirrors the without

Gifts eternity

 

 

Meet the beloved

Abandoned tower’s safety

To yellow castles

Peace in the Heart’s ways

Alien separation

Spun the enigma

 

 

Tomorrow will tell

When youth and beauty did fade

Forgetting love’s length

Electricity

Common connecting factor

I absorb it in

 

The games we could play

On threshold of new endings

Lighting with it dark

 

Fanciful choices

Tickle me now here and there

Tingle everywhere

 

I speak not you know

Silent communication

Minds in communion

 

Exquisite torture

Unseen but oh so vivid

Placating presence

 

In rapture breath failed

Turning twirling to your touch

Each spot of me lit

 

Castles in Spain built

Upon ceilings in mid-air

Your wing and mine held

 

We sang of wonders

Danced to the replenished moon

That cast its magic

 

Conjuring up hope

As the pace quickened it stilled

Gifting us more Time
