Leaves fall off the tree

Yellow butterflies to ground

Moss heather and stone

Mind’s criss-cross of highs and lows

Tangled webs of slain desires

 

Clouds gathered in skies

Raindrops showering gardens

Pond fish thirst alive

Mind’s preoccupations cloud

Soul reaching out to rainbows

 

Birds’ flight back to nest

Huddled sounds of nestling wings

Pairs to one’s solace

Breath of the divine inside

Alone we are not lonesome

Exam flunked

Student Methodist

Wood artist

With a twist

Presents trophy panelist

A fan to enlist

 

Myth debunked

Shadow turning light

Revived sight

Crouching slight

Figures dancing in the fight

Confusion of plight

 

March defunct

Pulls me to April

Window sill

Peeps on hill

Where the lovers now nest still

Forgotten the kill

Whirling Times

Teach us winds’ lessons

Old treasures

Forgotten

In chest with papers rotten

From centuries past

 

Unbroken

The spine a pillar

Houses built

Without ground

Scarce the love to go around

Intentions that wane

 

Hearts we shun

From webs they have spun

Searing wings

Come undone

In pursuit of happy nest

Place for bones to rest

When the bird chirps soft

Spring softer makes its way through

Flurry of gardens

Within the bosom mellow

Sunshine smiles hummed melodies

 

The nests are now built

Every strand a tireless flight

Parents made myriads

The hands that ironed now rest

Bright uniforms hanging prim

 

Rows of birds gather

Their beaks keen tools of language

Yellow orange flare

Women and children converse

Recommendations for school

 

Birds fly high in skies

Aerial exercise of grace

Coordinated

Mothers watch babies’ movements

Their eyes warm support system

 

A woodpecker cries

Its nest’s entrance occupied

By bees’ colonies

Livelihood created wiped

New livelihood emerges

 

Flowers bloom silent

Resplendent colours gushing

The fading shine bright

I watch harmony within

Losing all yet having all

I fly within a dream a restless nest

I fly within a dream, a restless nest

Wings fluttering keen, Heart spent in earnest

A wicker and flame, rancid pile of coal

Roaring fire to tame, will consume me whole

Smoothing the feathers that smother my breast

 

Carried from yonder of places the best

Enchanted wonder of poets the fest

Now light me ablaze catch fire to soul

I fly within a dream, a restless nest

Wings fluttering keen, Heart spent in earnest

A wicker and flame, rancid pile of coal

 

Windless the night’s peak, no branch here to rest

Of chatter the weak would keep me abreast

The silence within, a gift to console

The blood that ran thin, a tear that heart stole

A look at these doubts, a moment of test

 

I fly within a dream, a restless nest

Wings fluttering keen, Heart spent in earnest

A wicker and flame, rancid pile of coal

Roaring fire to tame, will consume me whole

Smoothing the feathers that smother my breast

Come pose me life’s fires, rhythm me soul

Square my chords amidst sixteen circles of eight gipsies

.

Let purple music be my sunrays

As fog protects the crops be the snow that covers green

.

In structure of sunflowers’ meadows

Make me within their darkest seeds intermittent light

.

Scorch me, piece me fractal, grow me whole

Stroboscopic blue meets the red when skies kiss poppies

.

Stack me in cabins, save me arrays

Bounty for one and for all let your waves be my spleen

.

Scatter me four points cardinal knows

Blend, rise my Arabic and Indian roots into might

Tune short waves the composite and plain

Purple, blue, green, red axis twine and twirl to tropics

.

Searching the skies discover pipelines

Where angels crossing Hearts mirror horizons that glow

.

Three walk away by one in the west

Their curves and their sways shoot into one growing mission

.

End fake unions may they not complain

As above angels so below only Love mimics

.

Shine now through me the one that defines

Under skies of the North the only Love that will flow

.

Three walk by one into sparrows’ nest

Sub dues of the mighty, the unholy transmission
