Deliquesced

In the murkiest corner of my house, behind vintage armarium lingers shadowy smoke of a lone candle lite once.   The flame long extinguished leaving behind a sooty smog that hovers an abandoned cloud   Reminiscence of days when arrogant flicker competed with the mighty rays of Sun.   Callously it turned its head towards the scorching …

Ram’s Arrival (Ramayan)

The sacred sounds of thousand conch shells piercing through the eerie silences of deafening  decades, a mammoth Himalayan cloud bursted  in the Northern horizons over the legendary kingdom of Ayodhya on the banks of fabled Sarayu River.   The thundering clouds wrestled, the wombs of giant Earth quivered, the regal blue-eyed peahens ruffled their gilded …

A Lone Train

Chuk Chuk Chuk Chuk… A lone train screeches as it travels through the hollower valleys and gasping Wastelands   Chuk Chuk Chuk Chuk… Piercing through the bare empty winds bursting into open clouds thundering straight into the darker nights on narrowest bridges   Chuk Chuk Chuk Chuk… carrying in it the ghost passengers, yes those …

The Greater Tragedy Than Oedipus

Tragic Oedipus  wandered blind In the bazaars of colorful Athens Crimson blood oozing out From  hollowed eyes Cursing gods For his fate so harsh  Carrying shame of Copulation with mother Strong guilt  sits heavy  For slaying, his own father Roaming from street to street Asking same question, “Why was I the chosen one” Begotten out …

A Brute For A Man

What evil dwells in men who lock up their women in golden cages and deny them the freedom which nature bestows upon them the freewill which the lord rests on them  What kind of love justifies binding up feet of their women so they can never walk freely, strangulate their feelings so they never have …

A Wind’s Tale

Started at 3 pm to look for morality, Hours minutes pass by, Walking waiting sleeping But road to morality seemed long On the curvy path few are busy, Some in slumber, some don’t  really care… My guardian angel texted ” do not disturb” Keep on marching, keep on trudging  Perhaps one must ask what is …
