Musical Heart, Published at MasticadoresIndia

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

Musical Heart

morning tranquility
broken and crumbled, my part

of ashes spread all over the flower garden
and within the nest of my heart

made out of sticks and stones…

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

summertime blossom

look to the sky, my love
and let the sun

arise
a flower blossoming in the summertime

for it is in you, I always confide
a whisper, and a prayer

in the meantime

take me halfway home
to you

in my heart and mind

soft and supple

soft and supple, bending
with the wind

I dream

of a life given
to my heart, getting out of the way
of results

knowing
they belong to the riddle of time
freeing me

like a wind chime

blowing back and forth
making beautiful music out of sounds and notes

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

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
