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

If I am but you

Twining mirror within coils

And you are but me

 

Would it then matter

That I slowly pass you by

In mismatching trains?

 

Synchronised movements

Both winding and unwinding

Directional knot

 

The road to nowhere

Is paved with slow intentions

Fast deaths of morrows

 

I know of a cliff

Bordering the Caspian seas

Where tilting brings height

 

Perspectives in thoughts

People of the shadows roam

Between lost and found

 

They crawl through the caves

While you fly in summer skies

To that road nowhere

 

I curse renewed flights

While maps of Time fail my reach

The limited sights

 

Tired raindrops ebb

Shrivelled outposts of the soul

Withered in the sun

 

In Time we will breed

With the tar and our blood’s flow

The crimson highways

 

Rain and sun will kiss

Upon plains of the Tatars

As shadows dissolve

The chances in ice

Celebrations yet dormant

Within Time’s spaces

 

A cramped sky of white

Clouds gathered competition

The silver linings

 

Birds in flights’ starkness

On backdrops of Heavens’ rims

Surrogate sisters

 

A hand on my knee

Pressure of a thousand cries

Purple dreams’ shadows

 

Your tears in my eyes

As wells brimmed with old despair

Crossed darkness in Heart

 

Summer’s painted skies

Contrasting orange for blue

Mythical morrows

 

Perhaps one Winter

I will swim in the lava

That burns within you

Building mirror’s other reality

Building mirror’s other reality

30 October 2015

 Collecting me

Sometimes, silent, I think of you in fall

It takes all of the dew of autumn leaves

To wet my lip crackling as it now weaves

Rustling edges, Indian summers that call

 

From creek I look at you now birth from caul

Wistful membranes resist as Earth now heaves

The pull, the push shudder as she bereaves

More so the words that I utter to maul

 

Sometimes as winter would dispel meadows

It takes the frost on splintered leaves that lie

To shatter all the shards of memory

 

When I would gaze upon lesser shadows

Filling reducing space from eye to eye

Building mirror’s other reality

Into my slumbers

You seep forth your pressing urge

I greet you with wake

 

Summer bursts with scents

Fountains of joy flourish ripe

With seeds of your fruit

 

Immersed in beauty

Looking into you faceless

Your breath on my shape

 

You knead me desire

I need you infinitely

My soul for you calls

 

The ravens have tired

Bearing you on wings they sit

Guarding our twin souls

 

Morning pigeons coo

As you take a daily leave

Rising with the suns

Demanding mistress

I snatch more of your presence

During waking time

 

Our stolen moments

Leave the daytime unabashed

By our flaming nights

 

Every inch of me

Recognises your fragrance

While you elude me

 

Come into my Life

The nightingales are worn out

In nocturnal watch

 

Gift me your past aches

I will teach you present tense

Submerged by our touch

 

We will invent Time

Infinity will give in

To our radiant Love

I touched your cold face

On a bright summer morning

As the dewdrops fell

 

The Earth welcomed cool

Steaming with the hiss of light

Water fire sinks

 

The cold was your tears

As night’s wake had gifted these

To your marble skin

 

A sob rose in throat

For future lived in past tense

Where hearts would flutter

 

You and I then cried

The loss of what was to be

As neither moved moss

 

Growth is from cutting

Seedlings in another land

Must then be potted

 

I cut through an inch

We winced from the incision

And withdrew silent

 

Hand on your shoulder

Mortal experiences

Treachery of pain

All senses fail me

A sixth came to the rescue

Enhancing your sight

 

Imaginary

Friends reproach me your essence

That they will feel not

 

You dwell in my mind

Your heart reaching through the space

In between photons

 

Mind said you were dead

Perhaps I am your widow

You painted me black

 

Milliseconds’ fleet

From one beam to the other

As I catch your depth

 

Coded in the words

Meaning of a mind spirals

Through a timeless void

  

Loophole carries me

Writhing spirit did battle

Fragmentation tires

 

Living in split worlds

My soul divides a fractal

Embedded in time

Autumn leaves will fall

As the sun will soon grow cold

And the bark will freeze

 

Did you know I’m blue?

Hues bluer than deepest sea

Ice in heart stretches

 

You fail to see it

You would not know what it takes

To break through the ice

 

Faith in you falters

But if you know then pray stay

Dance me to the End

Winter white will call

As the skies will gather snow

And the bears will sleep

 

Did you feel my hugs?

Tighter than the starkest grip

Sleep its warmth fetches

 

You fail to glean it

You would not feel them these quakes

Tremors I convey

 

Warmth in me halters

But if you feel then pray stay

Dance me to the End

Springtime will blossom

As the robins will return

And flowers will bloom

 

Did you need my kiss?

Lighter than the touch of clouds

Heavier than rain

 

You fail to reach it

You would not need these pink lips

Pressure of my soul

 

Velvet silk retracts

But if you need then pray stay

Dance me to the End

Summer will then scorch

As the sun will rise ablaze

And the hay will burn

 

Did you read my heart?

Transparent like a river

Murky like a pond

 

You fail to breach it

You would not read these blue tips

That pump me brick red

 

Life from Love subtracts

But if you read then pray stay

Dance me to the End

The seasons were gone

Even time came to standstill

We dwelt face to face

 

Did you heed my soul?

Overflowing blue-red lake

It merged ice with coal

 

You fail to grasp it

You merely scratch the surface

That shines like mirrors

 

Soul a soul could mute

But if you heed then pray stay

Dance me to the End

Stars shone eerily

Dwarfs competing with giant

Moonlight’s faded thoughts

There was no time I recalled

Where the weaker ever won

 

Withered jasmine died

Summer’s heat was but prelude

For hay set on fire

Shoulders bracing for onslaught

Ice in my heart melted not

 

Daytime’s dust lingered

New stars between Sky and Earth

Spread out shimmering

Like fragmented souls they flew

Wasted speckles of Earth’s skin

 

Distant dogs barked shrill

Crying to the moon they wailed

Loss of their masters

Gone remnants of your essence

What died once will die anew

 

The sea’s hue deepened

The horizons threatened stark

The clouds gathered dark

Mind’s eye looked over the waves

Hoping for glint in black hues
