just when i think

Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning.”
― Maya AngelouI Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

a word

just when i think
that the words are all said,
colours leak out
of me,
onto my bed

indigo, lavender and a reddish brown,
they won’t let me sleep
till i’ve scribbled them down

in the small hours
of an inconspicuous night,
relentless imaginings
compel me to write

messages overflow and swirl through the air,
surround me, inspire me
with their brazen flair

i try not to rhyme
but the words won’t comply,
they bombard me
with verses
in oversupply

Tangerine sky

“Even after all this time, the sun never says to the Earth,
“You owe me.”
Look what happens with a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”
― Hafiz

tangerine sky

tangerine overtones
beckon the night

an intoxicated mood
holds the light

making a spectacle
in a nonchalant sky

the outpouring of color
intensifies

submerged in the aura
of heavenly tones

the atmosphere gives way
to an amber flow

a divine perspective
of blushing hues

captures the essence
of glory infused

Merging

Don’t let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment.”
― Eckhart TolleA New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

flight of fantasy
epochs
of uncertainty,
stocks fall down,
funds not available,
economies
run aground

developed markets
threaten,
emerging markets
cringe,
essential commodities
hang,
on the outer fringe

escaping the
fast lane,
dodging consumerism’s
tricks,
super powers keep ruling,
with callous politics

transcending
the strategies
of global chit chatter,
merging with
the real source,
of what really matters

Dancing light

“Beauty is the illumination of your soul.”
― John O’DonohueAnam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

kindness 2

hear your
heart,
connect your skin
a cosmos is alive
within

positioned atoms
in their
place,
exquisite dimensions
of inner space

expelled air
of breath’s refrain,
roots of
grace
being proclaimed

gathered from
heavenly dust,
love
enshrined
in kindest touch

surrounded by
dancing light,
hopes
and dreams
endure the night
