Rotating

Spirals in the air

Yellow beams

Mellow streams

Kaleidoscope of summer

Springtime in the breeze

 

Sunshine’s bloom

Daffodils rising

Grass growing

Soft and sweet

Lips moving as the eyes meet

Remembrance flicker

 

Eagle beak

Touch soft as feather

Sliding panes

Earthen stains

Twinkling in the sky they sway

The reeds in the sun

They tilted

Valentine tainted

Grey pitched sights

Smear painted

Merry and lone acquainted

With fruits of untruth

 

Give up knights

Whispered nightingale

Flying whale

Uploaded

Celebrating wedding rites

Looking up the sites

 

I kissed you

When the moon felt true

Summertime

Waved along

Hearts a hammered path of blue

Flying with the kites

The wild at hearts flare

Like masterpiece of summer

Scorching the dried woods

 

The wildfire a blaze

Best pick of the century

A view nonpareil

 

Trophy of brightness

Uninterrupted by rocks

Moss shriveled by sun

 

Flaming pearl jewel

They attempted taming it

Flushing flash of fire

 

Like stone ornament

Of precious roots uncovered

Sparkler’s crystal light

 

No glass contained it

Conflagration of Senses

The infinite heat

I fall through the cracks

I fall through the cracks

In between tiles that shudder

Winter’s ice-clad touch

 

I fall through the cracks

Dropping from the wall’s peelings

That autumn rain cast

 

I fall through the cracks

From one ledge to another

That summer clad beige

I fall through the cracks

Where the light clung to ceilings

White like spring’s jasmine

I fall through the cracks

As the air opens its pores

Sizzling mist around

 

I fall through the cracks

As the skies open their arms

Shedding me sunrays

 

I fall through the cracks

Between needles and clock’s face

As Time slowly dies

Her Scene – This is Who I Am Now

Rumi – You will not know me

Reinvented spring

Reinvented spring

3 January 2016

 

Spectacles, new eyes

Look within their frame’s focus

Winter’s snow turns crisp

 

Next doors a bird chirps

A leafy tree in desert

Reinvented spring

 

 

Rain’s pitter patter

Upon the meadows flowers

Snow preserved by walls

 

Beach sands extended

Slight rivers joining the sea

Summer kissed winter

I wrote this poem in a series of Haiku bordering on Senryu because it struck me how much it is typical of this country in its winter to know of three seasons within the same time; mainly winter, spring and summer together but during some days winter, spring and autumn bizarrely depending on where you are going. The winter symbol is of course man-made with the construction of ski Dubai in Mall of the Emirates where you can go skiing regardless of the temperature outside. Winter here is the equivalent of spring in Europe and when it is not raining the weather is fantastic, flowers are blooming and birds are chirping everywhere.

Wading its way up

Into winter horizons

The sun reeked of change

 

Shadow of moon wept

Translucent mark in the skies

Ghost of yesterday

 

Your heart slow stammered

Strong were the upcoming tides

That would wash ashore

 

Rejoice for this pause

The calm before the storm’s dark

Winter will see through

Spring will speak of peace

In the whispers of the leaves

Growing on brown stems

 

Blue flowers will bloom

Upon the reddened meadows

Contrast of colours

 

Hearts will know of green

Beating under lush crimson

Metamorphosis

 

In between faces

Recognition but a sign

Renewal of Times

Summer will breathe bliss

Lazy hays that stretch outwards

Into new spaces

 

In between the cracks

Rivers of yesteryears’ gloom

Surfacing bubbles

 

The day will break night

Glorious winged serenity

Guardian of the realms

 

Bubbles will burst breath

Rancid spots on sheet of white

Agonising past

Autumns will bear sheaths

For all daggers of seasons

Stilling mildewed breath

 

The fog and the wind

United in scattering

Closing paths of fear

 

The wheat rolled in piles

A bounty for two morrows

Constructing solace

 

We will knead them bread

From the death of the treasons

Life sprouts from passing
