Couriers

Distribute love
Spreading hate
Parcel bombs
Know your fate

Military missives
Coded letters
Tryst grams
Love matters

Daughter’s plea
Son’s surprises
A letter from papa
Mum’s advices

Lost in the winds
high seas
Darkness gets them
Big freeze

Come from near
or very far
Mere messengers
all they are

Unending journey

deep eyed traveller
your journey has ended
why is it so,
I still feel stranded
thrown up to blue
miles airborne,
or deep within ocean
castaway alone,
days passed in daze,
being left to rot,
no one searching,
not being sought
earth’s forgotten
part of billion souls
unable to participate
has no role
suggestions welcome
death could be one
castigation another
easily done
purpose and such
lost when lost
journey so dark
at soul’s cost
searching redemption
in universe’s hum
a new destination
here I come

Let flowers have their day

summer long gone
evergreens all alone
fallen leaves, distraught trees
with season long memories
requested, pleaded,
guilty as charge,
let flowers have a day,
oh Lord incharge,
let leaves live nostalgia
removing ember traces
for a long moment or two
sunshine on their faces
grey goes green
branches fresh, lean
cold having a recess
colours spread in excess
blues, orange, strong hue
violet, pink, getting their due
sunflower open and fresh
weeds runaway in a dash
grass becoming bare feet plush
roses having a mighty crush
love and merriment in the air
depression crying it is not fair
it is supposed to be her season
rain, cold, illness many reasons
enough is enough, time to rescind
day has passed, deep chill in the wind

Certainty (in colour)

it would happen
perhaps, lately or
now, immediately
out of nowhere,
death will arrive
breath will dive
pulse will slow
pupils dilate
lungs deflate
gasping for air
strength, flair
all left, mind bereft
last few words
I am no more
certainty in store
of death and demise
all truth and lies
one short sigh
to be buried with I

Far away

Miles across valleys
in terraces, ridges, meadows,
sense a presence,
in long dark shadows
a silhouette of past happiness
wish I could reach again
trust I could regain
open your heart
let clouds of my lost wishes in
it is not a sin, to beg forgiveness
