Migrant

A migrant, I’ve no tales of herculean tragedy to my name, you see not every trip is planned nor every destination fixed, it was a chance I stumbled upon few roads knowing one day I’ll go back, I walked hesitatingly   meeting few along ,aware that home is a person we go back to, my golden abode …

Oh! Destiny

Oh ! destiny I’ve been hit hard by waves of rejection A grain of sand I know my worth, I’ve been shown seashore too many times… Oh! Destiny tell me it is not a Sisyphean fate! What I sought I never got! The mighty Gods conspired cornered me to the coast, I cried pellucid tears deliquesced …

Pretension

I had a belief & acceptance that dimpled cheeked Cupid doesn’t knock on every door. The evil-eyed pretension came decked in the glittering robes whispering the thing Poets call Love, rekindling the spark of dormant hope in me, knowing that hope can be a pretension too!  

Murky Clouds

Gentle translucent dew drops brought along murky clouds on grey chariots of northern winds taking me in their mighty clutches  tossing, spinning me to the dimensions of the other world,  as rays of amber Sun descended on the eclipsed horizons, the   mighty chariots of Northern winds   froze in eternity and I once again came back …

The Persian Laila

Her master’s darling she occupied a special place in his cozy lap …

Metamorphosis

I grew up beyond the grey walls….

The Land of Food Lovers

“Mac-Donaldus Tacum,  Infurnus Divina Steakum Panem nostrum daily coffeum withum summum donoughtus”   At every turn a Mac-Donald’s at every curve a Wendy’s, there across the road lay a live breathing hot-dog under the careful gaze of cozy Connecticut Sun.   The lush garden free flows with aroma of Dunkin -Doughnut’s coffee, all I need is …

Wounded

I don’t carry with me golden strings of pompous words, nor an embroidery of the  embellished locutions for  what I carry in me is a bleeding heart from where words gush out a greenish pus from decomposing wounds forever in loop for they never heal, as my brain keep playing the same slapstick movie again and …

Lofty Desires

I aimed for the mountain top while rare florets ooze from the ground beneath me, I longed for the sparkling stars neglecting the lapis lazulis laying on the beds of the mighty rivers  I craved to suckle on the heavenly nectar, while bees synchronized intricate combs in my backyard then when the dusk spread its …
