The Witch

The moon whispers
of spells & secrets
of ancient rituals
of the lands beyond
It called her by a name
The name deep within
The one no one had known
The one from centuries past
And she had changed
She would never be the same
She understood the charge
She now would begin

Who Won The Toss?

Few things remain in mind, which need to be recalled again with time
Rules of the game they don’t change
Better continue playing keeping the same thing in mind.

Impugned

My skull feels twisted
Upside down behind the skin
Brain aquiver and bombinating
Mulling over the night’s events
One step forward and
Fifty years back
Impugned

smells free in my dreams
till I feel the thin mattress
open my eyes and see

Who cares

Helpless like a child
I cry but there’s no mother–
my pain turns monstrous
on a hilly bed I lie
aged burden but who cares

PIECES I KEEP

days gone by
why so much pain
a friendship strong
now silent & gone

how are you?
love you too!
echos beyond time
voices we remember

a shattered heart’s cry
imbued with sadness
one by one
yellow petals fall
from old dry roses
swept far away..
memories yesterdays

We hurry…

Through afternoons of
thunderstorms.
Going home across moist
blackness. This day finished.
Another piece of the puzzle gone.

sunrise

daybreak painting a tin star
autumn leaves and stepping stones
a long goodbye amid raindrops
not a single reason for sadness
drying my tears happy endings

Ticktock Goes The Clock

The clock of life ‘ticktocks’ quickly like silver lightening!
It’s moving hands never stand still as I watch the day slipping into the night.
Stealing hours, minutes and seconds of precious life moments,
Before the clock’s chimes STRIKE an end to the day!
