Passing Thoughts

____________

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a place of withdrawn importance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

Moon

i shot the moon with my eyes
i fired bullets and hit it twice
first, it landed on the crust but missed
Lunar Maria and Lunar Terrae
it bore a deep hole into the mantle
reached the core, outer and inner
the hardest part the inner core
like your heart i can’t ignore

the second bullet passed thru your mind
it made some convincing
to be noticed not playing blind
thanks god your outer core have melted
that left the inner core be thawed
softened, moved and beat
towards this heart of mine
may you shine bright all thru the night…

I know not when

_______________

In the midst of the olden days
reeling off from my mind it lays
gone-by moments years i’ve used-up
I only take-in the good ones back

rough forbearance triggered my tears
hurting my heart and it did coerce
rebounding memories keep talking in silence
knocking at the door of my lucid conscience

i will be home i know not when
the good, the bad the excuses and then
prayers were said its righteous acumen
so be it, judgment among men

Searching

i’m looking for you
in this befuddling world
the puzzling troubles and hurts
make this spot a mysterious place
of burning fears and weeps

the deepening dark
can’t figure out the coming night
the dawning light
can’t predict the day to be alright

searching for the honest truth
in the macrocosm of falsehoods and lies
the heart and mind have been the home
of dishonesty seeking for a prize

i can’t talk to charm the crowd
or listen to their thoughts announced
i’ve been hearing all their planted lies
just to appease a master in disguise

time could wait for truth to come
for it to be counted on
other times could go beyond
to be believed by no one
