The flowers brome…

I sat next to a flower once, bold and dared, growing through the ground, making its way into the ether air.

It perplexed me, in mid sentence, I stared, as a whisper came forth from the flower’s brome, hard to grasp in its block and form.

As the words mingled within me, and I stared at the petals mildly, I realized the words had taken on a life of their own, resonating within my heart’s home.

What, you ask, did the flower say to me on that day?

“Grow boldly, love fiercely, and, when in doubt, sit next to me here, and watch, listen, and learn; then, my friend, you will realize what love is all about.”

the red brick wall…

the red brick wall

is covered in stories, holding the heat of 1000 nations,
imbibed with something
extraordinarily

stationed…as
we bear witness to a

façade that cracks,
and crumbles,
as each piece
of story
falls,

and
tumbles…

picked up by passersby, as they journey behind time,
washing themselves in the riddle of
human
kind

leaving their fingerprints upon the surface, adding
their stories to the
collectivity

it is
their
purpose

molding their hearts together, while adding one more
story

to love’s, ever-burning, furnace…

ravens flying on wings, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am excited to share my poem, ravens flying on wings, which is now available at MasticadoresIndia. A big thank you to Terveen Gill, and the entire team at MasticadoresIndia for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.

ravens flying on wings

the curtains, pulled tight, made of silk, and
reminiscent of the night, reminds me of
a time, before transgression,
and

possessions of body and mind…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

the resonance won…

I fell through the mirror once, and on the other side,
was you, hands clasped, and folded
neatly, you did always keep me
completely,
and
as

flowers fell from the sky, you gently made your way forward,
took my hand in yours, and then, the
question of my existence
spread…

arising in mind, the answer flooding my heart, as love
blossomed like the sun, retiring me to your
awaiting arms

the resonance, now,
won…
