Sonnet 18 Revisited

Inspired by an episode of ‘Paddington’

and with apologies to the Bard!

--------------------------------------------------

Shall I compare thee to a marmalade

Sandwich?  Thou art more wholesome and more sweet.

Even if the filling was farmhouse made

And the bread was baked using artisan wheat!

Marm’lade sandwiches have all too short a date.

They’re eaten before the kettle ha...

After The Fifteenth Step…

 

Watching the full moon

Coming out of the monsoon cloud

-In the middle of the lonely night

 

After the downpour

The sky seems to be smiling

Like her eyes

 

Shining bright and vivid

Her eyes; brimming over in ecstasy

 

These sleepless nights

A lot of people I knew
Tried to cross long bridges
Sofia's masterpiece story
Ended among her princes
They wished her to describe the picture

I adored Sofia
But the trees imposed ...

Upon The Quality Of Love

Romeo  Romeo - where for art thou Romeo?

Speak that I should hear your voice, rejoice

that deafened ear should hear you call my name…

_____________

 

The quality of love is not defined,

yet trippeth from the tongue with gentle ease,

to each and every one of us a meaning

as fickle as the feather on a breeze

 

Speak not to me, I pray, of star crossed lovers...
