poem

sublime reunion

Posted on Updated on

awake at night, I delight
in conversations
with the light

stars wheel above my head
with them, I keep spinning
I keep spinning in ecstasy
on a carpet white

if I had words,
I would explain
how mad and frenzied
I am carried across the universe
in that silent flight!

heart’s wish

Posted on Updated on

times may change
years may pass
may my heart find peace
only in things that last

at the end of the day
at the end of my life
may it only be meaningful things
for which I strive

may I never be misunderstood
or cause someone pain
may only clarity, selfless love
pulsate through my veins

people might change
they might want to come and go
but when the time is right
just make it easier for me to let go

through this journey, through this life
its your love and light I ask
innocence of a child
kindness in this heart

it is not one less year of this life
it is one year closer to You
in everything I seek, believe and do
may I only appease You

vague remembrance

memories
what are they
a handful of ashes
tossed in the air
slowly fading
into evening mist

cold embers

Posted on Updated on

on days like this
words fail me
lost without you,
my steps falter
these lips tremble
and breath hardens

‘when will you come?’ my heart cries
‘melt my frozen body
in your warm embrace
give me a reason to stay alive,
wipe tears off my face?’

I wish you could see
how I await your arrival
lost in space and time,
wandering between
the dead and the divine

and when only stillness flows
in endless motion
how I lie scattered
in a grave
on the edge
of a glowing ocean

…..

a pleasure to collaborate with an artist whose work has moved me beyond words. Thank you M for being you and the beauty you have brought into my life through your photography – http://myworldonmuteblog.wordpress.com

delusional veil

Posted on Updated on

what a world of illusion you created
a world of maya
where forgetfulness and confusion is the norm
and people seek comfort in each other
trying protecting their wounds
taking each step with caution
not realizing all of us are beggars
with torn clothes and broken hearts
looking for the same gem

like a child
who is given toys
as a distraction
you filled the world
with forms and colors
shapes and feelings
that people spend their whole lives
to own, tolerate and as a tool to find meaning

one person’s hell
is another’s heaven
stepping on each others whims and desires
most people wander around with chains
tied around their necks and bodies
like slaves pulled in all directions
by society, by their own dreams

yet handful, just a handful
the lucky ones, the chosen ones
find liberation, find freedom
while trapped in this body
in this web of delusion!

silent ecstasy

Posted on Updated on

is it music of the waves
or ocean’s poem
liquid flowing lullaby
this prayer in passing
eluding me
into silent ecstasy

naïve heart

Posted on Updated on

with the branches surrounding

the flowers smiling, and the breeze calling

the delicate, lovestruck soul

breathing in unknown rapture

and in harmony with the existence,

blossoms like never before
