poet's dilemma

poet's dilemma

 

staring at a white sheet of paper

can be frightening to a writer

or it can bring joy

that is if the words start to flow

 

okay, I am staring

 

where are the words

fingers long to write

Blue Umbrella

sun shines down on love

rain spatters lonely grief

only my blue umbrella's

Dry

I stare at you across

the empty, scorched desert

that has appeared so gradually

and so imperceptibly between us.

been engulfed in desiccated emotions

now lingering in the vacant space,

hanging like a burning haze,

Dream Boat


Let the dreamless boy to cry 
If his wish to fly has gone 
How his tears going to dry 
If he stays far of sun


Ask dreamless boy be awake 
That the dream, is a part of us 
Tell him: "think of a better talk" 
And to change the dark glass 


Help dreamless boy to be here 
And clear his negative thought 
Once he comes to hear or share 
He will enjoy to dream in a boat

The Goddess is Dancing

 

Far from the powdered sand-tracks

in dunes dry beyond ages,

past unwatered acacias

where the wh...
