I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Placid Sea, is now available atMasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.
The moon, a placid sea, reflecting back
a mantra of meaning
watching the sunset along a coast, depleted and dry
I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
A golden butterfly lurks in dark passageways where walls never age. Gloomy ivory green leaves gleam in dark as the never old, and always immortal butterfly kisses the feet of rose petals; that are shackled to the past of the known and the Unknowns. Butterfly dances on her feet, as the first snow of the year melts the memory of him; holding her hand on the roughest day of 2016. A pink laughter lies to her eyes. Pain engulfs the joy that was never hers. Irony lies in her lies, time slices the old wounds open. Pain and love compromises on the edge of void of tarnished dreams. The butterfly dies at an untimely hour and she thus rises from the ashes of past.
Asleep in her chrysalis, Small and insignificant, She’s waiting, Hesitating, Unsure where she fits in. Her dreams ebb and flow, Gentle and slow; Desire and longing Lie obscured in the mist. She’s safe in this womb, Her cozy cocoon, Where no judgments can drift. But life teems all around: The scents and the sounds, Meter and rhyme forming verses sublime– She breaks free and takes wing. Adrift on a breeze, She spies the nectar she needs; Vast fields of inspiration Fill her heart with elation. Now proud and unafraid, Her emotions are displayed On the outside. No more pseudonyms And no need to hide– She’s finally at peace Inside her own skin.
It’s been an amazing day, and I am celebrating with each of you by sharing Butterfly Love, from Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, which is #1 New Release in Poetry About Love, and is currently #8 overall in this same category. Now available in Paperback and Kindle Editions from Amazon.
Thank you for always being here, and for your unwavering support.
inside the dew drop known to me as you glistening and shimmering
with a vibrancy at noon we dance under the umbrella sky
tinged with blue
and await the love living inside our brambles of truth
