the last sin
  pale ashen sky
a bleary eye
clouds of recurring screams...
i am a zoo
  an octopus leviathan
tentacles into an ocean
of unformed emotions...
syphilis and love  
  syphilitic pall
stifles the clear blue
i contort...
shell and pearl
  amidst highs and lows
in life's ocean flows
a shell peony-mouthed...
i am an unmarried mother
  fed on stings
of barbed milk morality
my child-plankton...
the lovers
  cell upon cell
bridge of their union
hung on the pillars...
  ogre of age
and time cavil
at a warm picture...
the young today
  innocence thaws
at the altar
of ambition...

a seductress of my thoughts

a diva
a devi
an avatar
a beloved
cast in a sensuous cleopatra mould
a mother
an emotion
an idea
a feeling a dream
an illusion
the sun the moon
the stars the sky
the river the ocean
the birds the song
the forest
and the virgin green

she is more than
all my words

twirl of tulips
in her soft cascading hair
gleam of winter sunshine
sketching blossoms
a whirlpool of emotions
in still waters
her countenance
a mirror
to all that is sublime in life

this anniversary i shall get her
a mangalasutra and we shall revisit
a holistic union
of man and wife
