Emptiness

Emptiness and I
A solitary trail
Grief, subdued

A couple of haikus


1.
Deserted noon
A fan squeaks
Beneath the hot roof

2.
Its early spring
But in my weary mind
Winter looms large yet..

A haiku

The summit looks
At you, from a distance
Such a still gaze

Haiku

Flock lands on ice
A perfect coherence
The world moves on

Haiku

Day-break
Noises in the background
wheels resuming the whirl..

The Storm

YOU have come to me, on this hot noon
As the desert burns
My thoughts are blue, for a moment
The reckoning of my days
Bestowed on me
My breath is heavy with the dust of decades,
Loneliness.  The descent of a great desert
The say, nor the thought
Neither the sound
Can travel unto the truth;
But it has, behold – there is a storm
That gathers at the far horizon
The great tempest, as it shall be known
Henceforth
And forever

Alchemy

Like the after sex giggle
Or sunlight shining through the slush
Sometimes, it isn’t so complex,
Rather, a well-made soup, the
Perfect  alchemy of colours
Before it slips
From your fingers
Only to be merged with the brook …
