Taking A Glance At You

taking a glance at you
is poetry in itself, by itself and for itself.

there are words in my eyes
they speak in silence. They long to tell you what i feel.

there are hands on my lips. There are fingers there.
They long to go near you and kiss your lips too.

i see you as words too. Your eyes are images of my
own happiness. Your lips are shaping the shapes of ships
and they have sails to take me away to ecstacies.

i feel you as words of love, and lust and desire insatiable.
my fingers want to read every syllable in your face.

you have always been my poem.And there are so many of you
in all of them.

words, and images, and ecstacies. faces and compositions.
i love all of them. And this time i take a glance again.
at you. this poem. this is you. Believe me.

Taking Advantage Of The Calamity

I sometimes think that in times of
calamities the wolves are still there
wearing the best sheep's clothes
and in packs they go to the places
where people are asking help and
with their instincts they do what
they always do: taking bites and
finally taking all of them for their
sumptuous dinner.

Not to be outdone are the vultures
who are waiting for their own time.
The dead are useful too for their
breakfast.

There are only few good Samaritans.
And they work without any nameplates
at all.

Taking Courage

there is no escape
when our eyes
meet again
on a morning like this

my feet are tired of
running from the
dreams of
my hands
the heart speaks
and my mind
keeps the intricate
tendrils of its
logic

all of them point to
the flower of love
that blooms

finally i cut it from
its stalk
and deep in the
hollows of my heart
this vase
without water
i shall watch
it wilt

Taking Life As A Friend

life knows
you

and joins you
in the table
of your

joys and
sorrows

give it space
take a chair
give it a glass
of wine that
it deserves

- -
and say cheers!
