  9505.     

of gods amongst men.....

man is always
a crowd and gods
mix,

in the confusion
of sorts,
the become one and
the same

all pebbles and sands
and wind
and night

except perhaps
some flickers
could be fireflies
and

zephyrs
stars

diamonds or
mere
grains of sand
reflecting
a late
afternoon sun.

  9506.     

OF GOING BACK

at a certain point
our feet hurts
we want not just to cease walking
but to stop breathing
altogether
some memories await on the other
side of the road
you cross
and look forward
to something new
you sit on the pavement
like a child
waiting for Papa
you hold your favorite toy
and then you stand
and run
back into the lost corners
of your joys
finding the missing steps
the link to
completion

  9507.     

Of Guard Doors And Bird Windows

within four walls
you are enclosed and
you close your eyes
as you opt for the
comfort of darkness
and silence,

you remember words
the come ticking
like the hands of
the clock

each word provides
a scenery of the past

for instance a baby
still struggling to
take its first walk,

a father nearby holding
its hands and watching
so it may not fall,

a mother beside him
with overflowing joy
in her heart,

and so many more
running like a
river from the
forest

you choose the word
which fructify into
ripeness of bliss,

now you are no longer
within the four walls,

the windows come like
sparrows
and the doors standby
like
guarding trees

all of them
provide you
the structures of
openings
like stomata
pores.....


you are free now to
choose
to go where
you want
to


except those
suffocating
walls

  9508.     

of hopping and of hoping

a kangaroo hops
perhaps finding discomfort
on the grass below its feet
or sensing danger
of the strange sound around
it hops
and hopes for something better
on the other hill

i sit here
unable to hop like this silly kangaroo
sensing my gaze
as a dangerous haze

does it ever know
how hopping can destroy
hope that does not know
how to hop?

i hope for some better things
in my life
i will take chances under these trees
resetting some leaves
and twigs
to see the skies
and the sun that must
this morning rise
