A little gecko
visited me,
making my day,
standing really still,
he hoped I’d go away…
Trying to go unnoticed
he was taking
quite a risk,
I thought I saw
a movement
I even caught him wink…
He brought me
a message,
from the other side,
I asked him to stay for tea,
but sadly
he declined…

“Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?”
― Charles Bukowski


She was way too alluring
to go unnoticed,
captured by expressions
of a poet’s diagnosis…
gazing in windows
through breathtaking eyes
she dropped the pretense
the veiled disguise…
of who
she thought
she was meant to be
in someone else’s fantasy…

and the explosion of truth was a supernova,
spilling her wounds of ambrosia…

From darkened quarters
her resistance diffused,
and she radiated the credence of faith transfused…

in confessions, beneath unmasked eyes,
her fluency became immortalized…

I wrote your name…

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

wrote your name in the sands

I wrote your name
into the sands,
on long beaches
where seagulls land…
can you see 
from where you are
my bold strokes, this brief memoir?
The effervescence
of radiant shores,
brings peace and joy
and faith restored… in ripples
of unforgiving tides,
still, flow
deep and wide…
your name
may wash away,
and I’ll continue to celebrate,
Because you’re always on my mind,
most beloved
eternal child…

“the soul has been given its own ears
to hear things the mind does not understand!”
― Rumi, Rumi: Poems

inner stillness

I’m aroused
by words,
their power to create
or destroy,
like tiny molecules of perception
being deployed…
their particles fill thin air, with darkness or with light
it’s up to us to harness them
in doing…
our narrations
without judgment
or disguise,
remembering souls are beautiful and made wholly divine…

and in times
of inner stillness, when creation overflows,
thoughts become superfluous,
in the afterglow…

When you found me…

“Some people are truly beautiful. The light of beauty shines through their souls. And the world gets drenched in their inimitable light of love.”
― Avijeet Das

When you found me
in the darkness,
you brought me
back to life,
with calming reassurance 
and I knew I had arrived…
so I reached towards the heavens
where vibrant colors fuse…
realizing it’s possible
that you’ve always been my muse?

Dear Natalie
Oh, how I miss you, my sweet friend,
please say it’s not the end…
of the glorious scent of your perfume,
in gardens
where we rendezvoused…
of listening tones
assuaging my groans,
with your soft voice,
you dulled the noise…

Across immense oceans,
I felt your warm devotion…
in sympathetic words
showing me concern…
I miss your loving presence,
you’ve always been a blessing…

though you’ve changed into light
your radiance is still so bright,
I feel you gently breathing, in gardens of Eden
until we meet again, on this journey that has no end…….
