Unrehearsed

Wingbeat of an eagle 
Moves the 
Azure of sky...

Lonely day
Living the silence
Blue hour

Dinnertime-
My window opens
To the stars

Twilight breeze--
The shape of wind
In the evening primrose

Cicada songs
Climb the 
Moonlit sky

My wild dreams:
Now there is a 
Stillness inside me.

Midnight---
I spike my coffee
With golden acoustics..

21/03/2020

My compass--
The nib of my pen
Pointing north

On my paper
The hues of silence;
I hear my own
Heartbeat.....

Moonlight--
Cereus scents the night air:
I sleep

One breath 
At a time....
The synapse of heartstrings

In the echo of
The Milky Way-
Dreams become
Poetry...


A March Night

when ink dries on paper

Like physical scars

violence becomes fire

The nib becomes a needle

Digging into your flesh

Tearing into vulnerability

Hopelessness of inevitability

The frailty of feminine strength

Abuse is ink that draws into your soul

Ink that shapes

unspoken words .. ellipses

Leaving you soulfully dead.

In The Eye Of The Corona

It's like living in a submarine
Torpedoed in quarantine.

Bacillus becomes a biometric
A wake-up call going ballistic.

Defying mother nature's laws
Showcasing our human flaws.

Binge buying panicky stockpiling
All in all, my appetite is dying.

Eating right,  fighting fit
Our system needs a health permit.

Looks like an apocalyptic virus
Giving man the price of being lifeless.

A pandemic becoming a tragedy
Epiphany for man's fragility.



dolce far niente

 

a breath of love
wraps me in its embrace...
as i lie dreaming 
under scarlet and violet hues
of subtle odors
lingering in the satiny air..
i lie dreaming in
the embrace of my reveries
 i dream
as moonbeams fall
on midnight dew
brushing somnolent blooms
glazing sleeping wings
moonbeams glitter 
on a breath of love
as it wraps me in its embrace
like nuptials of a new day
day and night twine
at the witching hour..
a surreal bequeathing..

i feel a pain 
in my heart
like an open wound
i feel it bleeding
before i drift off...
and yet
I live..



#vers libre




 

 






A Poem For Me

I write so that my heart can survive
I know that only poetry can revive.

There are things I can't tell anyone
They think I'm silly or just having fun.

Writing keeps my sanity, helps me stay right
Helping me not to give up without a fight.

Like, a sorry is more than an emotion
When hello becomes a goodbye, a teary solution.

Maybe my heart is made up of glass
Too fragile to face life's tough class.

Grief is a bruise that pain cannot control
I'll try to wear a band-aide on my soul.

This poem looks for the right lines, words
To convey all of the emotions stirred.

I still feel short on what I have to say
I think, I still found a way to, anyway.

Maybe, this is not a poem at all
Just my keyboard going for a spin , to sprawl.
