A Frozen Wish

Embrace the  troubled waves To comfort her worries When her ungrateful ships forsook her To conquer new home. Soften  her pain when broken against rough rocks Like a frozen wish broken along the lips of An old woman In  her lonely birthday. Thank  the sea Just as   The  parched desert thanks the rain For…

Was it worth it?

  Was it worth it to let a  friend in need down ?   If you do, who’s then  going to carry your coffin? Only a friend’s shoulder can bear the weight of your cold bones.Was it worth it to scream at your old mother ? If you do, how  then are you going to pay…

When the wind blows out my candle

May that light in those eyes that Have always watched over me As a child  With love , fear and grace , Keep  glowing like shimmering stars. May that smile on your angelic face that has nurtured hope in me , Blooms like  a  dainty rose. I  pray hard  mother that your days will be…

The Sole Moon

  When your night is starless,don’t blame the lonely  moon. Laugh ,because laughter is contagious, and you will see glowing souls  adorning  the bare sky. When your flowers fade away,don’t blame the rain. Cry ,and they will wake up, flowers love playing tricks to see how much you love them.When your heart is broken ,…

My home is a book

I wish my home was a book I would  live in a fairy tale And live happily ever after. I would call children’s stories my grandson and  my grand-daughter . I would steal  a magic wand To rekindle old women’s  smiles, be a knight reign a land wherein bread is for all and water is…

Farewell my love,the earth said

I saw from afar the shy sun untangling her  golden locks, And the dainty moon  trying on  his silver cloak, The  stars  too are  busy polishing their foreheads. I also heard  my arabian roses reproaching the wind For  messing up their beautiful petals And the nightingale is hushing them for The earth is embracing her love…

The lonely guitar dedicated to June Pauline Zent

His forgotten heart Feels lonely.   So does his old guitar. His rough hands molded By faceless  time, Yearn for A  tender touch To rejuvenate His  antiquated melodies. So does his lonesome guitar. The veins of life in the old man Are parching Rust  has made of the strings of  the guitar His eternal home….

Innocence with the bow and arrow

They disrobed him of his innocence And ordained  him a soldier, They smashed his  childhood dreams Under their giant feet, Then scattered them along  the mantle of a heartless life . They effaced his  good name And carved on his fragile heart a bow and arrow . His shrieks torment  the serenity of river’s ripples….

Elusive Love

His hair is disheveled And he is dressing modestly Whispered the Northern star To the  blushing sky The dusk is approaching Urged the solemn night . Their poems Bathed in passionate  tears tears him apart , the sky said , The sigh of  their tortured souls by the whip of  a mortal  love torments him…

Surrender

You reproached me for scratching the fair sky Those are the  love poems My restless  heart  is repleting with And only big sky can contain them so I entrusted her with . You reproached me for disturbing sleepy stars You made a wish  last night I  wanted to give you a shooting star  To mak it come true, That’s why I…

A truce with a pirate

You seized  my  merry love letters and turned  them into  inconsolable paper boats Then summoned seagulls and Declared yourself an emperor Of conquerable words. You stained your sculpted face  with their  ethereal blue dew to feel the softness of  a tortured heart, to pass on  to your deserted veins its sweetness, and take you to…
