Whispered end

Whispered end
2 March 2021
Hills turn blue
vapour condenses
illusion 
On white glass
my eye signs off a contract
with the moonlit shades
  
Harrowing
the sights of morrows
they swell slow
into mind
I reshape their existence
with might of the flow
  
Conducive
point of the return
Saddened eye
whispered end
stammers which the mind portends
that the soul now mends

To cradle of light

Mind’s tendrils
nailing the target
course reset
no regret
The hand on my heart measure
of pulsing leisure
  
Within eye
the whispering trees
build gardens 
of morrows
bridges of new intentions
my bosom crosses
  
The journey
a flight within reeds
Ticking clock 
awaits none
Elementary treasures
growing from the shrubs
  
Untangling
sister’s weaving spun
through the heat
that melts all
A riddle for mind to fall
A tale to recall
  
Adventure
the soul has begun
within joints
it anoints
hands drawing cardinal points
spaces the eye seeks
  
The light flows
within my body
It quivers
in rivers
messages it delivers
to cradle of light

The way of the breath

The way of the breath
25 November 2020 
Outlook opening
within the mind a sparkle
zest of life’s vigour
  
Growth of energy
in landscapes of a picture
hanging in my head
  
Seascapes designs show
outline of an entity
forming from essence
  
Contours’ perspective
a vision of a being
prospect of morrows
  
A quick glimpse to view
aspects of the living soul
The look of the heart
  
The stretch of the sight
A scene of silent beauty
The way of the breath

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

Music flooded head
13 November 2020
  
In the beginning
the rhythm set to basic
primordial human
  
Melodies renewed
Frontal lobe early signal
of evolution
  
Healing sounds soothed soul
Leading out of deep caverns
where darkness fought light
  
It mends in two keys
reconciling opposites
the rift now repaired
  
Prime numbers plotted
a pathway to fixing scores
for blindness to treat
  
First light restored sight
Reviving sounds tickled ear
Music flooded head

Pray fall into heart

Pray fall into heart
5 November 2020
   
 Bitter happenings
 of bleak landscapes of the mind
 frozen in the core
  
 Crisp thoughts of morrows
 numbing the flow of heartbeats
 biting raw of flesh
  
 Icy winds swept fast
 through the ebb and flow of time
 They spelt love’s decline
  
 Cool winter mornings
 Chill of a frosty sunshine
 dawned upon our souls
  
 A dip into hope
 Drops of wonder cut through doubt
 A dive into faith
  
 Your hands are so cold
 Warm them upon my bosom
 Pray fall into heart

Wet grass tickled feet

Wet grass tickled feet

30 October 2020

 
  
 Children of morrows;
 their cries ringing everywhere
 soaking Earth purple
  
 Foggy landscapes met
 teary eye saturated
 with pains of fledglings
  
 Stormy weather formed
 flower of life in my chest 
 that drenched my heart red
  
 Pouring rain renewed
 hope in another Earth’s rise
 The bud of my thoughts
  
 Petals bloomed in mind
 blossoms of tomorrow’s world
 that dewy drops spelt
  
 Misty skies breathed soft
 whispers of promises kept
 Wet grass tickled feet

The dust had settled

The dust had settled

20 October 2020

Landscapes gyrating

Moon a backdrop of ashes

the Earth spun onwards


The soot filled the sky

fragments disintegrating

the ground split in flakes


Dirt strewn everywhere

the flowers lost to the weed

battles in gardens


Tea estates littered

cinders from the teeming pit

Magmatic plates moved


Soil’s upheaval

The hills turned into mountains;

valleys disappeared


Churning sand of time

Gradual recovery

the dust had settled

Trace of red teardrops

Trace of red teardrops

Dewdrops in the air

Pearls scattering on my face

the first of the rains


Heads hung low they weep

Zoroastrian filters

drizzle through their plight


Drop by drop gathers

weight of a hundred stones cast

millenary fate


Maidens in tatters

their backs particles of flesh

sprinkled across choice


A dash of freedom

drips through time that seeps in age

beads of silver pain


A splash in the pond

Murky waters now stirring

trace of red teardrops

Prince of Peace anew

Prince of Peace anew

7 October 2020

 
 Scalding memories
 Blisters in the soul that wept
 Abandoned all hope
  
 Scorching sunlight dimmed
 Shadows played with my mind’s eye
 Dusk fell on the plains
  
 A nightingale sang
 Darkness covered the window
 Black spiders shriveled
  
 A flutter in heart
 shaking off obscurity
 Wild thoughts bloomed inward
  
 Parched throat renewed odes
 Charred flowers revived colours
 The blackness withered
  
 A staff split curtains
 Shades of his heart shimmered through
 Prince of Peace anew
