Skies that rise

Forgotten the wise

Set sunrise

On demise

The nothing in glaring beam

To be what they seem

 

Birds that mock

Seasons out of stock

Set the lock

On havoc

Desolation way of stream

In the human dream

 

None to stand

I let go Her hand

Cattle brand

In the land

No power left to rewind

Destiny of blind

 

Sands that grind

Rising seas unkind

Stars that wind

In Her mind

Death oncoming theirs to find

Earth in crust to bind

 

Dust piling

Thunder beguiling

Ropes filing

Times riling

Unshed the voice of the meek

In the desert streak

 

Ceilings peel

Pillars downtown reel

Tendrils feel

Tombstones seal

Winds of raging death that reek

Of destruction’s peak

Dream 1 (Before the wind blows it all away) – Max Richter

Hawk’s eye stirs

Mesmerised iris

Glaring whirs

Into sight

The shadow behind that blurs

Witnesses of light

 

Invoke me

A game to dethrone

Casting stone

In rivers

The thought that blind delivers

From mirrors of old

 

Beat the cold

The breath throbbing drum

In the hum

Tale of two

Passengers that we once knew

In beating temples

Do you Hear

Approaching Thunder

The lightning

Announces

When flesh will be paid ounces

Of the Dark Matter

 

Do you Know

The falling raindrops

They precede

What we heed

To gardens of old we yield

Ivy climbs the walls

 

Now believe

Nothing left to grieve

Repeated

The Advice

Given by the three blind mice

Three with the Heart leave

Undeterred

Blinded hatred herd

Pushing through

Wars of faith

Warlords faithless brink masters

Pushing to blisters

 

Consensus

A brief bleak respite

Nature’s call

Angels fall

Instincts of the animal

Woven in mammal

 

Prime life thoughts

Rhyme forget me nots

Prayers meek

Cathedrals

Art of taking to the peak

Mistakes that they seek

 

All is spent

Pennies and heaven

Pains in souls

Underwent

Momentary bridled lamp

The blind back to camp

 

Treasure map

Splitting in four squares

Hidden wolves

Prepare lairs

In the message look for ark

Brittle noise their bark

 

Orders tight

Like my bosom’s breath

Impending

Lifelike death

The wise point to the blue skies

The fools follow lies

Transient

Sentient status

Of my Heart

Pay no heed

We wallow in ridicule

The killers galore

 

The absent

A status symbol

Of unfed

Mouth to mouth

Respiratory whims fetch

Meanings to the touch

 

The starved clutch

The remnants of chaff

Falling threads

Of a thought

Wheat fleeting commodity

Bread an afterthought

 

Beauty wrought

In sinuous lines

Between peaks

Of despair

Tragedy eye opener

Liner of dark rims

 

The look skims

Bones and milky skin

The silk worn

Pieces torn

Patchwork of a body lain

On bed of roses

 

Blind eye sees

Beyond the matter

At hand waves

Splitting air

The mind never going where

The Heart speaks softly

Sigh – Praful

Tabula rasa

Tabula rasa

Brutal happenings

Dissolution of a life

Identity swept

 

Right off the gridlines

Not a temporary stance

A move off the dance

 

Five six seven eight

The exercise continues

Replacement dons shoes

 

Four three two and one

Count no more for it is done

The clock ticks onward

 

Irretrievable

The resolutions taken

In past extensions

 

Pour me a nightcap

Resolutions lack resolve

When ceilings cave in

 

Oceans covered din

Thunders of a hundred waves

Sealed the leaking tap

 

Trains and boats sink fast

The fish venture unabashed

Reverse aquarium

 

Meek summer nights stall

My quaking communication

A guilt to recall

 

The water the fall

Can you see what I must see

Blinding waterfall

 

Disconnected straits

Bridges of desolation

Pathways for the dead

 

They crawl slow around

Inconsolable white light

The sob heaving chest

 

The city crushes

The will of bleak emptiness

I yearn for forests

 

Within the jungle

Only one kind of law rules

No constricted schools

 

Unmanned the learning

When the forests are burning

All animals flee

 

When all are equal

In problems solutions lie

The friend in rival

 

Give me the blind eye

Let me treasure ignorance

That seeps as I sigh

 

Humanity’s pains

Grit my teeth shatter my bones

Survival in clones

 

Twirl me a new leaf

Grant me renunciation

Turn me the tables

 

Tabula rasa

When all is said and undone

Back to the square one

Their vision scorched me

Thousand soldiers of darkness

Of untruth their flag

 

Is this as it is

The sum of all our hardships

Walking on the knees

 

I roamed the deserts

My hair running its own way

Talks of centuries

 

My shadows cast light

In the silence of their screams

As the widow dreams

 

They hardened their hearts

In the name of freedom’s rings

As their chains tightened

 

Martial waverings

Their walks valleys of despair

As orphans huddled

 

The suns in me tire

Of the cycles of tales dire

Reinventing hope

 

The blind men will grope

Their hands panic stricken tools

Their hearts emptiness

 

Power’s not prowess

Only throne of loneliness

Rotten arm in glove

 

When I live again

Walk with me in the valleys

In the name of Love
