Wedded Bliss…

Romantic, Couple, Rainbow, Poetry

 

 

 

 

We undulate to the hum of the night breeze
our bodies in sync with time and rhythm
our eyes hold on to each other for endless moments.

We’re caught in the euphoria of wedded bliss,
where everything melts away into oblivion
we are caught in our own whole new world
where what matters is just you and I.

Chasing A Dream…

In chase of a dream, he kept funnelling their money into his bogus projects and his wife thought he had simply gone mad.

Trodden Soil…

Beaten Path, Poetry, Trodden, Route

I feel you and I
have walked this path,

long ago in the past
where precisely, I don’t know.

I see the beaten route
in the trodden soil

and your words touch me
without your knowing it

they echo in my soul
where I know I’ve heard them before.

Courage! That’s all.

He was not fearless.

As a matter of fact

he was always filled with trepidation.

Yet he always found the courage

that galvanized his actions.

He walked into the burning house

and grabbed the little child.

He knew his soul would haunt him forever

if they burnt to death.

Never again he said to himself.

The memory of his mother

and his little brother

forever seared in his mind.

Nerves of Steel…

 

Our nerves are stretched and frayed
And yes, we champ at our bits by it all
At the spate of hateful and violent attacks
Rocking the World to minutes of silence
…and viral hashtags

How can we condone this?
How can we continue like this?
What kind of horrible lives these people must live.
To harbour souls so embittered?
…and nerves made of steel.

Complete sensitivity is lost to other peoples’ lives
There are hardly words to explain such horror
And the damage that hate can do
As yet again, we are shocked from lulled senses
…and all I ask is when? When will it come to an end?

What are friends for?

Good friends

Friends are family and gifts that we choose for ourselves.

They make us laugh a little harder, cry a little less and smile a lot more.

They are the rainbows and sunshine of our lives.

A Writer’s World…

1458485898659[1]

A Writer’s mind

Is a junk yard

A filigree lace of windows

For flights of fancy.

A convergence of different World’s

Where we create hero’s and villains

Real and surreal.

Weaving intricate webs of words 

and evocative imagery’s 

That transports the mind,

Through apertures, down rabbit and keyholes

Through the wide expanse of French windows,

Into the boggling meadows of other minds.
