Kitchen Spring The apron Was on the cooktop And the mittens were On the oven grip The rice cooker stood at The edge of the counter Just like yesteryear I felt the edges of the pantry And gripped the apron Still it was cold and numb As a winter snowman As I looked for a sign of life – For the ...

Dreams A clockwork flesh That grows like a sapling Dreaming of dreamy moments Of mastering a kite or balancing a bicycle When the heart is full Of the currency of dreams Blooming without a price-tag In the curvature of lip-petals And above the balance of wheels And well below the poise of paper Lies the beauty of frailty Mustering strength ...

A Vesak Pandol (Through A Child’s Eyes) Bulbs in bursts of light From a larger than life edifice Where they fire in sequence Around a solitary figure – Legs crossed and meditating In a hermitage –; and from this perch Incandescence streams as straight lines And reflects on tiny irises As they look up bedazzled At the wonder above And from this lowly vantage point Rises ...

Not for a moment of happiness, not for the sake of seeking shade among the misery and darkness. It is for the requirement of unrequited love and affection. That is required to keep me alive. So love me, like the way I love you. No compromises , No commitments. Just true love… required for me to live..

I drew her near Swept her off her feet I took her in my popeye-like arms And laid her on a bed of lilies She looked at me And the first time too had a look about it When the tongue is drenched And the eyes are spring And the lips are swollen to pout And a gale blows ...

Circus The oldest truth is We all love ‘love’ – the notion The feeling and the jargon The gifts and the tokens After all everything cheesy Is impaled by cupid’s arrow Like the cup that reads “true love” Or the card shaped to a heart Yet some people Rarely curdle, jaundice and flavor To the cheesy side of love No ...

(Originally written on a text file) This was a new text document A blank slate A void There was nothing written on it Until now After my keystrokes Paints letters upon it Deflowering it Is one so ugly If one is not pure? Is purity based on being unused? Is it not better instead If we base purity on goodness? ...

Love (Yet Another Poem) Seemingly necessary From the puritan to the erotic Kiss to the bliss And stamped by adhesives – Palms, shoulders and lips – Even held and rocked like a cradle And scribbled on some post-it notes Sticky till everlast And that necessity Which programs to a compulsion Yields fiber that is drift-proof Blind and gullible And lithifies to A bedrock.

Whalers The whaling vessel Still lurks and harpoons still rocket beneath Where rays of light mix with trays of brine As tail-gating whalers Chase the meat of gentle-giants To make strange amulets Distill oil and to carve and tear Some well-cooked flesh With flat incisors and jagged molars And in this strange battle Between monster and meek And metal and ...

Tillage A picnic basket stood In the middle of nowhere There were croissants and marmalade Scones and pastries Some orange juice and a coke bottle We were surrounded By dancing airstreams and tweeting birds And we could hear the grasshoppers And sense the sunbeams bouncing off Our cheekbones And you and I Munched on the sugar treats And sipped some ...

A Refugee Child The kite travelled far Through a bridge of time And a wall of barbed-wire Into a new land, a new country Into the arms of a refugee child Who found a little bit of color On the fringe of a fence And he looked at the flying wonder Stranded on mother earth Knowing he too had a kite in ...

Fate’s Apostle The climber took the spiral path And looked to the sky To gleefully bank A few rays of quanta To face-off life The river curved Even jumped passed Abominable rocks And found a little bit of space To find her surf And I – just like that Found the long way home When big dreams – The castles of ...
