Time’s Ashes, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Time’s Ashes, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Time’s Ashes

I drive in circles
manifesting

a purpose

given to me as a child

it’s these coattails of peace and love
I ride

transcending pain, a realization…

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

paradoxical serenade

I walk through flower fields
feeling of
home

where we once met

long ago

the cattail tops, and butterflies
float in air

transfixed, and
in awe

I compare
the blood running through veins

and the nature
of name

this

a paradoxical serenade


paradoxical serenade was inspired by the poem My Blood, by Eunice Aformanor.

dandelion seed

I sit inside a pool of salt
and sin

looking

into the eyes of dried, and thin
crumbly skin

tired, and looking to the wind

I reminisce.

even when I’d rather not know
the pain, to me

always shows

the effects
of this universal context, deplorable

in times when pain is greatest, and light
like a dandelion seed

when time stops forward progression, looking
for lessons

I await you.

wondering
if you’ll show within my heart soon

smoke and mirrors

wrath is misplaced, as are watching metaphors
dissipate

into smoke and mirrors, telegraphing you from
afar, trees become
me

as I stare into oblivion, violence becoming, nay,
let’s stray, and instead
shelter

peace and love, along the hills we keep running

tips touching, lingering effects take shape, and
into our hearts
stars, and
galaxies

we place, with zeal and frenzy, calling you home,
nested in a heart-shaped
abode

named after you and me, love’s alcove

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!
