Ashes in the Wind

And here comes the dusk uninvited to the burning ground

Breaching hesitations covered with the red tears

Ashes in the wind, trying to find a home in this dark abyss

All that smoke can be – to wander in its rusty nomadic home

Sparks from the fumes where the smoky flames were kindled

All that fire could torch was the form of expression

The forbidden bushes where denial rules and writhes

As a light feather the soul floats wandering paralyzed

Leaving transparent shadows of mysterious reality

The winds have covered a thousand cries beneath

A roaring widow, a hissing mother of a single child

Grappling with the wounds, assuming the being will survive

Look deep within the hollow immortal, give a reason to exist

The Barred Choices

The air filled with mourns
In an empty amphitheater

Waiting for the carnival of souls
Returning to the home ground

As the slowly dropping silence
Melted into the deplored voices

Of the unheard and unwanted
Joy of the barred choices

Every week! Week after week

Pain of feeding the monster, weak
Every week! Week after week

The clock is on the run
Time is having its sweet fun

This is a Friday Pun
Still 2 to go! Hold on Son!

There will be a Monday
After a run over Sunday

“Give me freedom”
And he grunts at your wish

Locked in a 10×20
Caned by words plenty

Revelations
Post-mortem operations

Awakened you will stand
But dance to tunes of same band

Every moment! Week after week
Brutally strangled, is the meek

Cluttered head

There are knots of thoughts
In every corner of my brain

Some needed clutter
And the ache of strain

Unfolding some
Dumping the other

With every passing day
Its only crumbling further

Darkness Departed

Lonely stars splintered
And the darkness departed
Miracles do happen!

*My experiments with Life, Haiku, et al*

Escaped Soul

Happy souls exist forever
Some depart in agony today

Enslaved in mortal covers
Choke up to the harsh reality

Choosing the path of denial
Fly towards the open canopy

Rest in peace my dear friend
Hope there was another end

*In memory of a colleague who lost his life in an unfortunate accident. Please join me while I pray for him. May his soul rest in peace.*
