Poetry

In the peak summer heat it rains — 
dark clouds soften the sunlight,
the earthy scent refreshes the senses.
A tender breeze touches
with its cool moist droplets.
Birds rejoice, trees dance, leaves flutter;
and so does the mind.

A poem

I step into your darkness,
but I can't see you.
I hesitate to call out, to intrude,
what if you're asleep?
This pitch-black,
most severe shade of darkness —
could it get any darker!

Blinded by light for too long,
now I cannot see
the figure lying still,
not very far from me…

One line poem

Photo by Aron Visuals on Unsplash

She rocks me on her lap
humming a soft lullaby,
I close my eyes, slip
into night’s deep slumber;
that perfect round dot
on her dark forehead,
wanes into darkness.

In response to this week’s prompt “Moon” by Ana-Maria Schweitzer.

A poem

Photo by Sajina Ignatius

Chug, chug, he chugs along
with a pack of strangers;
boarding, alighting,
then repeating.

Far from home, in many places,
seeking answers from unusual spaces;
a stranger in strange destinations.

Exploring, yet seldom catching
the fleeting glimpses of true meaning.
Walking past streets, often unseeing
the signboards, homeward-pointing;
he struggles, with false belonging…
