cherry blossoms

grapes grow in the sky
while I rely upon the love living

inside
the blossoming cherry trees

they always seem so deliciously vibrant
and in touch with you and me

a love that’s lasted centuries
fills me with a smile, a glee

handed to me, you see?

a sunny afternoon, sitting among the flower beds

I digress, and dress in roses,
my best

laid suit
by the sun’s eyes, disguised

as I learn of the stars in your heart

while a love to me, at last
they impart

the flowers prose…

as the pain grows, it reminds me of the flowers
prose, blooming under the sun, and
often, on the
run

hiding in the shadows, and lurking just beneath
the surface, it rises like the tide, this
swelling in my
chest
it is
a

lifelong romance, just like the joy that lives on the other
side, when we abide, and take the center
in stride
we

come out, wide-eyed, with love as
our guide…

I gently wish upon a star, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am excited to share my poem, I gently wish upon a star, which is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Though this is my last poem of the year with MasticadoresIndia, I am very excited about being a regular monthly contributor next year. Thank you again to Terveen Gill, and the entire team at MasticadoresIndia for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.

I gently wish upon a star

heartaches, reminding me of earthquakes,
experienced in between the lines,
moving past mistakes

of a life, this life, lived in moments unsure,
and in others, grown taller
than the applewood trees flowers…

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

the pages of our story…

you whispered to me once, it came through
the trees, unseen, a beautiful thing
discovered
amidst
the

flowers, and turbulent troubles, left for the moment,
like leaves falling from the sky,
you remind me
of the
why

in existences’ cry….calling to you and me, a
new whisper seen, and felt
in-between
the

pages of our story, lived, loved, and magically
created, like two dancers, entwined
in a kiss so
soft

subtleness

takes on a new form, as realization dawns, and two
hearts are, together, as one,
drawn…
