Lights

Lights slither in
from their source outside
like ochre yellow snakes –
crawling on the walls
throw shadows in the mind –
shadows of memories
of similar lights from
childhood

The dark call

http://elisafox.deviantart.com

One bright night
when she wasn’t very alert
a call from far away

Beckoned her to dark reasons
the cloaks of passion and confusion
hazed the moon

She gasped for air and light
’cause the path she was about to jaunt
was dark, suffocating and deceitful

With indisposition
her heart trended towards
dreary familiar territory

Of deceit, pain and guilt
that will tug at her heart
up and down her life

Human and Animals

This poem is entered for Monday Poetry Potluck at Jingle Poetry and the theme for this week is Nature: Plants, Creatures and the Cosmos.


Picture for WordsWorthMillions

Unsurprisingly in the country
silence, animals, nature and human
live in harmony
unsurprisingly in the country
exotic birds stay perched on roads
undisturbed by human presence
unsurprisingly in the country
deers continue grazing in the dark
un-threatened by vehicles’ head lights
unsurprisingly in the country
monkeys park near the roadside
watching human activities
while humans watch them all
unsurprisingly this will soon be a lost world
where human will fight for survival
animals will fight for survival
surprisingly knowing
that existence of both is essential
for the existence of the other

[Despite the threat to wildlife, our country still enjoy all these scene without having to visit zoos (there are hardly any zoo in the country) and the ‘hazy’ picture here was taken from a distance as not to disturb the birds. ]

Walking into a Sunset

Taking a walk into the sunset
I looked back
saw my life like a movie
I have lived in the dark
in the bright
I have loved women
men
children
I have cried and laughed –
I saw the tears dry
and the laughter continued
to quiver more in my ears
I felt light
I looked in front
I wasn’t walking anymore
I was flying with the cloud
flying away to a new world
to a new beginning
