Shy, Soft spoken,Yet

a class of minds quiet, cerebral

Silent! distinct quality, in crowds terrible

Inner strength, magnified in solitude, alone

Dislike limelight listen, watch and mellow

In need of time

Time stretched to accommodate everyone

Focused on the most important tasks to be done

Salient features of neglect and backlog of paperwork

Stocks me like a ghost in the shadows haunt and lurk

whimsy Words

Whimsy Words

Whimsy words onset

Frustration, fury, twin emotions

muddles and blinds the inner eyes

Clogging synapses, the rational gaps

Slowing down the agile acquaintance

Weaken the bond and betray trust

Alienate the celestial confirmations

Silent stiletto

Canopy of dark black clouds

Static irreplaceable titanic troll

Waiting for unassuming misled lads

Lassies widows and blighted brides all,

Lures around the winding steps then the

Hopeless find sense as they fly off the zenith dive.

Nocturnal plight

by Shashi Moore


Nocturnal Plight

As dusk awakes the objects take shape

From vague outline to detailed vivid beings

Nocturnal sight alight peer at crawling delights

Mice, rats or even chicks that come in sight

My eyes wide open, I perch on the birch

Tis different tonight, I have no meal or bite

Ninety nights and nine in row I waited to

Dine with Gale, my blind date.

Scuffle and ruffle a sound too familiar

Creation So Divine!

Creation So Divine!

Each creature unique, yet

has for all, one in common.

Wondered what it could be?

No species complete without the “one”

Too often taken for granted

Have you guessed?

Neck deep I envision for

The one who is Omnipotent to be

I immersed shoulders to see

The Solace that I seek. The Unseen.

Arms and hinds covered with brine

Waiting for the Omnipresent to reveal

Stop the hunger! I plead, where is the sign? I cry,

site for Sight

Hole in One

Is a tale of none,

 who fell Prey to Trump.

Treasure of life once possessed

he traversed length and breath, in search;

 Hot spots left behind for desolate ones

Running from all, hiding the treasure

from those that are shut out from all pleasure.

The tribute to My Parents

by Shashi Moore

(via Looking for the sweet spot)

The tribute to My Parents

Six feet tall

He stands out always in a crowd

Not of his height, but of his charm

Full firm lips yet gentle on my cheeks

My Father

Fell head over heels in love with his petit neighbour

MY Mother

Twilight Zone

by Shashi Moore

(via Humbly, Peax & Love)

Twilight zone

Shadows lengthen

Tentacles of darkness creep

Dusk sounds fill the air, I approach the overgrown courtyard

The hearth was cold with no fire

The boards creek, as I climb the stairs to loft

Remembering the days I curled on downs soft

Reading spooky tales and scaring siblings all,

Old witches with long wiry hair, hook nosed one-eyed monsters

Were some of the tales of childhood days.

Weekend Prey

by Shashi Moore

Tap and jive; on toes wild

The arm twirls; while legs whirl

The music beating silly; the weekend joint jolly

Filled with bodies entwined; she is out for the first time.

Her friend is seasoned to every beat. A lad offers the first timer a wisp

The Bet

The Bet!

Feigning quakes of fear

I enter

Down Valley of steps


to creepy musty world of shadows

I edge into

the abyss of darkness

swallowed in uncanny surrounding;

my shoon squeaks

I jump!

the flutter of wings,

Bats I bothered

Power of prairies

by Shashi Moore


( Muybridge-Buffalo- courtesy Wikipedia)

Power of Prairies

Where the power of prairies pride

Hot snorts gust

Nostrils flare

 Brows clinched eyes glare

Sinews bulge tensed as they glide under

tough hide stretched with caked dirt tangles of dark brown fur

 coming of the herds raises the

dust of the scorched land

parched tongue with thirst

unquenched they tread

in search of waterholes

A typical arid evening in a Plateau City;

Vendors hasten home with baskets on the head,

after a fruitful hawking;

To light the fire for hungry mouths to be fed.

The sun is an hour away from the western horizon

everywhere so calm, not a leaf astir

A quick evening walk should be fair.

The stroll down the road turned several heads in stare

The gentle breeze stronger now, gathered momentum.

It turned to gale in a split second

the wind howled like an old man in despair.
