I N K E D (poem)

Inked you are
on my immortal soul
engraved deep
leaving a hole
your stardust leaves
a trail and explodes
shimmers on me
and forever holds
indelible and dazzling
glittering like gold
teasing me with your mystery
in layers you unfold
revealing some hazy most
you blow hot and cold
mesmerising me with your
dark and light till i’m sold
inked for eternity
your name on my soul

Fire and Ice (poem)

You the cold indifference
me of burning passion the essence
you the one with the frozen heart
me the fire that devours your art
you reach out not
within me emotions I contain cannot
living apart is perfect
but meeting would create profound effect
would you melt to the ground
or would I freeze till deep down
would we create and excel
or would we fiercely repel
wonder about it I always do
but enough of wondering too
the time has come to put to test
our wills and freeze or burn the rest

reaching out I am
are you willing to lend hand
to end this fire that we’re burning in
are you willing to walk on ice thin
if you melt and engulf me in your love
I promise to be the fire that lights you up

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 morae (or on), in three metrical phrases of 5, 7 and 5 morae respectively,these typically contain a kigo, or seasonal reference, and a kireji, or verbal caesura(cutting word).English-language haiku poets think of this as a Japanese form of poetry generally (but not always) consisting of 17 syllables, usually within three lines, with 5, 7 and 5 syllables.In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line, while in English these usually appear in three lines, to parallel the three metrical phrases of the Japanese form. The essential element of form in English-language is that each haiku is a short one-breath poem that usually contains a juxtaposition of images.Most writers prefer poems that refer to nature and social events, but some of them don’t always place an exacting seasonal word in the poem. Furthermore, a few of them compose on one or two lines in less than 17 syllables. Currently the majority of poems in this form are written in 11 short syllables in a 3-5-3 format.
Senryu is a Japanese form of short poetry similar to haiku in construction: three lines with 17 or fewer morae (or on) in total. However, senryu tend to be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nature, and senryu are often cynical or darkly humorous while the other is more serious. Unlike haiku, senryu do not include a kireji or verbalcaesura (cutting word), and do not generally include a kigo, or seasonal word.It is often said that both forms can be funny, but that if it’s funny, it’s probably senryu. Both can be about nature, but if it’s about nature, it’s probably a haiku. In addition, both can be about nature or human nature. Both can be serious or humorous/satirical. A serious poem about nature is certainly a haiku. And a funny/satirical poem about human nature is certainly a senryu.

Ume Sakura (poem)

The winds bring fragrance
of you to me my beautiful
the sweet sour fragrance
of adolescence

I was at that sweet sour
stage of life myself
when I first met you
you lured me with your
colour and scent
that lingered in the air
where you stood magnificent

I touched you stroking gently
and you stayed with me
throughout the day on
my fingertips and senses
I got so addicted to your sight
that I went looking for you far and wide
saw you bloom in varied hues
pleasing everybody who met you

I long to touch you and take in
your fragrance your sublime presence
I long to capture in my mind
and sight and senses your essence

I’m hopeful that I’ll see you again
atleast once
hopeful that I won’t
be deprived
something that I pray
so consistently and diligently for
hopeful that we’ll meet again my beautiful
hopeful that I’ll be mesmerised again
by your magnificent fragility sight and scent
hopeful that the heavens will unite us again

till then rest assured my delicate
that I carry you in my heart
like I did all these years
the sweetest memory
the sweet sour reminiscence
keeps me going about
I make do with imagining
and your pictures
in my heart I know I’ll see you
please ‘Ume-sakura’ pray
pray that we meet again
pray my dear plum blossom
that we meet again
