Saunter

He sauntered by the ancient grounds
sold to yellow haired tourists

took notice of the innumerable dead
under the soil and above it

Blessing

Share

May you always seek the unbound—I said
bitter-sweet pinch of nettles
the untold may you always eulogize
like a sob in your most profound silence
may you always bless the unachievable
like an uncontested summer dream

With patience and persistence
you coach your body to the ebb
and slow current of melancholy tide
and you go forth and recline back

Avoidance

Comfortable and cozy you are
safety of four walls
pasted in lavish satin
soft hues and golden threads

Old Couple

Long and narrow rusted table
hardly stands motionless
bleached out tablecloth as though
thrown in debts of river for a long time
faded like her eyes gazing the sea’s
agony that reaches the foreign land
where her son has vanished

Burden

He put his bag on the floor
lied next to me
he raised one leg and
leaned it against the wall
as though to leave on it

Even this solemn remnant
of the ancient temple standing
like an anchorite in meditation
by the slope of the tired hill
even this they shall defile
remember this—I said
