FEATURED BOOK

POETRY

KITE 

 

Flying colours 

         over the clouds 

With multi - coloured 

           dreams 

Passing the rivers, mountains 

          and fields 

With melodies of 

             hummingbirds 

Freely, coolly you 

             fly afar 

Children waving 

           hands 

With roars of 

       laughter 

Jumping up 

       and up 

Storm, the 

     storm 

Hit ! you are 

       among the branches 

Torn and 

     torn 

Alas! you are 

    Blasted !

__________

CORONA AGAIN

 

The green-eyed monster with its weapon

Laughs at the "Weeping Earth"

"Weeping Earth" lives in isolation with locked feelings 

Victims yelling in pain; neighbors door locked in fear 

Hospitals in burden; streets in fear of "monster"

God, please have mercy on us 

People yelling, crying overnight 

Again, again it's on the platform. 

__________

FADED LOVE 

 

Glancing at stars 

Weeping for the moon 

Sipping  a cup of coffee 

With broken memories 

Recalling the fairy tales 

Chattered till the moon hid among the trees 

The sandcastle; broken; washed with waves 

Counting for warmth with un-melting love 

Eyes in pain with rose thorns 

Heart attack in fire 

Mind in cellar as prisoners 

Murmuring the past gone days 

As a book that lost its pages 

Faded ; Alas ! It's faded .
