Lightmakers (poem)


LIGHTMAKERS
the moon is a huge knot entangled between our skies …
my verses and your’s pulling it from either sides …
the knot gets tighter the moon shines brighter …
basking in poetry we write for each other …
the sky appoints clouds to sweep to gather dust
emanating from the words and letters we rub …
it then makes a round ball of that dust and
when we drained from all that expressing lay down our pens
the sky uses that ball as light and to the earth it lends …
the earth that it so loves …
the sun now lights it up …
their love story …
the earth’s nights and days are always
at the mercy of our verses …
for our verses create the sun and the moon …
so write my love … write love

Songbirds (poem)

There are a thousand different kinds of songbirds in this world and each bird’s song is different from the other, it’s strange how while we humans appreciate the diversity in nature we do not tolerate diversity in our ideas, opinions, voices, way of living.
This world is notorious for calling every body who is different, weird, someone with a voice, opinionated, people with a different way of looking at things, crazy and each day we are taught to fall in line, to be ‘normal’, to be like everyone else. We learn gradually to force ourselves to suppress our voices for fear of being abandoned but those small songbirds that we admire very much teach us an important lesson, to sing our own song. We should pay heed I say, it’s high time we start singing and dancing to our own tunes, the world will fall in line eventually …

Life had suppressed
my voice for too long …
then one day in my ears
poured a little bird it’s song …
a lightning within
my soul struck …
jolting me from my slumber up …
the small insignificant bird
taught me a big lesson …
to put my song out there
for the world to listen …
since then I’ve been singing myself hoarse …
never to lose my voice again
is now my main focus

Tenerife Sea (poem)


Tenerife Sea

I am the sand spread
throughout the shores
of the Tenerife Sea …
patiently waiting to
hear the tread of
your shoes on me …
they say hope
keeps the
world running …
similarly the hope
of seeing you someday
keeps me burning …

I wish you bring your feet
soon to me my beloved
before I burn to glass …
I will be looking for you
on these vessels
which from here everyday pass

Someone Special (micro poem)

Someone special is he who stays forever and Daddy does, in many hearts.

This year September 17th was my father’s 23rd Death Anniversary and it never gets easy, I wonder how can it not, how even after so many years, even after forgetting how his voice sounded, I haven’t healed any. I sometimes wonder if subconsciously I don’t want to, but then it is not in my hands that I cannot forget or recall, I wish it was, I would change how it cripples me to think of his sudden death, his last minutes of his life all alone in a pool of blood and struggle marks on his always well polished brown boots haunt me forever, maybe if he had died in front of me or died because of ill health I wouldn’t miss him much, I am not sure but I do wonder.
Thinking about his last minutes, wondering if death came easy, if he was unconscious when he died or if he was conscious and in great pain with difficulty breathing, wondering if it was even an accident, I cannot, just cannot breathe, I don’t mean to put it all out here, I try to keep it light but then it all comes back to me and I suffer, I don’t expect all to understand but it hurts like hell, I live in a dark place in spite of light around me, his loss, his absence, his death, his words will haunt me forever, maybe haunt is not even the right word, he will forever live in my breaths here, forever, maybe it will make him happy to see how profound an effect he had on me, maybe he lives through me.
As for me I just hope and wish he knows that to me this world has a gigantic hole without him, that he is still someone’s most treasured.
I have been putting off writing this, just his thought, his name and my world scatters again. He was and will always be most special, special maybe because I know so little of him, an enigma my father is and my interest in knowing all of him will never subside, he’ll always remain a mystery, a void in my existence …

Some people come and never leave …
some people leave to never come …
some take a place in your heart …
some take the whole heart with them
leaving behind just a pumping lump …

Interlude (poem)

Interlude was written for my hubby (not for his birthday though), I do love and cherish all that he does for us, so this poem was just to let him know how much I appreciate his presence, his love and the hard work he does to keep our family running, I know that words are never enough but maybe for once words will express more than actions, hopefully(fingers crossed).

I stacked a few clouds
and adjusted them …
with a few more clouds I sewed a blanket …
my weathered heart tonight needed something heavenly
soft and cosy to comfort my broken …
only soft light-toned fluffy clouds stood a chance …
soft fluffy heavenly clouds …
and his calloused palms
