yellow in swirl, whisper in blue
when silence wears new folds
eyes in green, row over stars
flash a dream for the orange

let me stay on this ground
till it becomes my world

Pigeons

twenty and three pigeons
on arms of uncertain branches
had no arms to stop the doubt
browless in wit, glum in gossip

Ends

by Venkat

wispy memories, swoop raw and deep
claws of gravity, spin lines in blood
love in moonshine gay on its old paw
a planet of nights, on bones I know not
ends I hold, carry lines raw and deep
too cold for knots, so far for thoughts

till they lit the crooked shades

pruned stories, oiled memories
painted distances in neat vials

Fences

by Venkat

fences, they went up in smoke
perforating my glowing doubts
the fence I sweated to defuse
had but barbs of the wired mind

Yesterdays

by Venkat

yesterdays stole my shine
to flaunt their windy pride
I wear no coat for smiles
but buttoned by same dews
each morning, every morrow

Corners

by Venkat

paint them if you will
nailed with your groans
bowls of time on the sill
clock’s tick, fishes moans

Thoughts

now it limped over, green
eyes blown, puffed intents
a quiet cloud, a serene dragonfly

no hooks to keep ears
carry my parched mind
in corners I live not

hang on a tenuous shine

Dream

by Venkat

Pigs they oinked till late
Their mother’s scent wafted
Smoke rings up the air
Moon gave a sigh under the voices
They had no night to dream

Secret

by Venkat

2018-10-05

secrets they stand out
high up, pointed in the ends
in our lives, of spotted gold
in hurry, our nemesis in stone
eyes too close, will see not the end

Triolet : 2018-09-06

by Venkat

where do I hang my thoughts?
when love has lost its home
tables now jaded, speak no more
where do I hang my thoughts?

<!–more–>

windows now strangers
no candles to warm the time
where do I hang my thoughts?
when love has lost its home
