Early morning blues and thoughts,
the dough swells and sifts
through my fingers, course,
 little more water and ghee
the dough so soft and ready
two little sparrows singing
sitting on our window grill
I took back my finger rings;
messages in my mobile,
over the table words peeped
 from open books,
a quiet time of my own,
a muffled laughter knocked
at my silent careless thoughts.

Rewind, and a second look for
a parallel scene that I ignored
two little hands taking away
part of the dough
little funny rotis spread over the stool
marked with little finger prints
and on her table her books
my life, my words, deeds---imprints

another persona in making

each step moving forward
tangles in sharp edged creepers
cutting memories fresh,
red thick heart oozes out;
impressions, every last page, it pricks
the next step forward,
an empty, hollow space screams;
fear lurches like dragons of the myths
yet there is a sky yonder
blue and deep where
dreams do fly like flocks of birds
together, together as
adorable younglings with their mother,
the invisible wings of an unknown beat inside;
love, hope, ecstasy, compassion?
 invisible wings, they are free like those dreams
and they do take you, drag you forward
giving you infinity…

We travel

with me, before me and beyond me
it walks and runs and flies
a handful of small dreams and

moistened little pearls of tears

Oh I made it this was just 9 minutes for the linky widget to expire.....I made it this time....I was always late!!

No "no" to life....

rain washed, guzzled a luminous evening
as night slowly mellowed to a new dawn;
she gazed on clouds to douse, satiate
mid days blistering memories

the city was alive with noises of life,
she watched a bud playing in the breeze;
she set out on the wet road, afresh,
rain washed street, and light breeze
played with her shiny hair

The Sea

dreams of heaven spilled
over the waves and rippled
a silver blanket curled
and spread as mermaids
swam away to sea
to swim in amniotic hug

Here on the shore
an empty body sat
leaving day’s files
and shoes aside

The soft snowy wind sang from across
from afar, from beyond,
swept through the trees of decades.

Memories cornered to the soft couch
evoking colours of life’s
flowers, chrysanthemums, daffodils,
gladiolus, heather, amaryllis, magnolia,
marigold, touching all subtleties.

Invigorating the senses the coffee
shined, milky brown foaming
and weaving patterns with words
encapsulated in books, words
solid, birthed from the winds of decades,
from the memories of flower touched lives
brewing with coffee, encapsulated in books,
reaching back to minds
resting under the shades of books,
forgetting and remembering…

a game

 old man
 little bat
and the moon
they met every night
for a play with cards
from the beginning of times;
intuition and
the time as they are
and they laughed
how mankind loss game spirit
of life

Puzzle continues

Courtesy Google

An owl on the branch
 keep calm and a morose face;
down in the valley many plays,
 where blood flows turbulent
mountains grow high, on skeletons;
deaf, blind, and mute
intelligent apes with big calculations
cutting the branches they sit on
fighting for what seems life;
but life is a scapegoat
with no aim and no reason
where flowers bloom and die
and birds still fly free and nest on cement trees too
where greenery still holds on, a vain hope.
Intelligent apes with big calculations,
calculations, calculations, high on calculations
that they strangle infants and kids
to gain on life,
Life? Life?
An owl on the branch
 keep calm and a morose face

A puzzle that takes you to infinite thoughts
Leaving you lost in unknown aisles of Milky Way
If it is abundant you will be thrown to boredom
If it is scarce you will end up in breath-taking hurry-burry

A puzzle wrapped in His prudence
