____________

i walked into the center of broken reveries
befuddled and flummoxed,
i shared a stumped image
of the beginning’s birth
marked moments at the spilled beans
captured the past glories and shames
with recognition or admission of guilt…

Winter’s dreary smirk

___________

the green leaves
dancing with the wind
whichever direction they sway to
they’re all hostile to my sentiments
which exude from an empty smile,
many have observed that i hoard a lot of
winter’s dreary lonesome smirk …

Struggles

_____________

a place of withdrawn importance
left to the exclusion of comfort
he’ll live with it inside
always welcoming a silence

at the boundaries of grief and laughter
hurdling human nature’s limits
inside his heart, mind and spirit
he would be blowing victory’s trumpet

euphoria of stars will finally spark
flashing a thousand words of joy
truth running its course on rivers and streams
launching a thousand honest dreams

the certainty of things bound to begin
driving on the road through thick and thin
shattered struggles breaking some efforts and kill
the prize awaiting up on the hill …

______________

sometimes dreadful words will hurt
sharp as the thinnest edge of a knife
at times a rose can bring the sun up
lighten the sky unbending your twisted life
flowers can be the talk of wisdom
the sunshine of long awaited hope
your source of envisioned strength
to win back the better life you once owned

Either or, neither nor

______________

a prophet speaks theatrically
what tomorrow would bring
his eyes would whisper
either the truth or the lie
but your heart could feel his heart
his truth is another one’s lie
another’s uncertainty is his accuracy
neither he nor the other
can’t tell the genuineness of reality

The ways

_______________

open up the gates
unbolt the locks
unfasten the screws
let the new air navigate the naked mind
let it mingle with the other finds

put a little grease
hammer it to let loose
turn the screws left and right
read if it served your purpose
foil the way leading into a circus

smart bending of sentences
not necessarily to rhyme
unfolding a beautiful story
matters in special ways
hidden in a string of metaphors
