I sit in the quiet underneath the white oak watch the rain rolling from my left edging the sun towards my right Isn’t that what grief does to us chipping away the simple things we enjoy I remain sitting under the tangled arms unshaken, unmoved, undisturbed Here is my sanctuary and centre of gravity where we once hid from the world’s chaos and found each other locked gaze in awe
It’s the winter sunshine Pale and just warm enough The tangy smell of citrus fruit Warms my nostrils with anticipation Lime and lemons Oranges and kinoes The perfect accompaniments To the afternoon sun in winters Sitting partly in shade, a little in the sun I enjoy our futile debates on theology and politics The memories stay forever in my mind Winter sun, citrus and your invigorating company.
I am excited to announce that I have been asked to be a regular contributor to MasticadoresUSA. I now have the great honor of being a regular contributor to both MasticadoresIndia and MasticadoresUSA. It is a dream come true. You can read more about all of the MasticadoresUSA monthly contributors here.
I would like to thank Gabriela Marie Milton, and the entire time at MasticadoresUSA, for thinking of me and inviting me to be a regular monthly contributor.
Here is the first of my January poetry submissions.
our love, airborne…
the sun rising in the morn, reminding me of times, forlorn, dust-laden hands, breathing in all I can, while looking to the stones in the riverbend
