twitch not this silence, my owl
I hear the waves in your eyes
rock not this dark, my owl
I see time gallop down your gaze

drop lights, wrapped in murmurs

rise stars, from your breath
shiver leaves, lounge no more

by hands I know not
found its stairs

Thread of Life

by Venkat

on this round leaf, of blue and brown
you let me in, a tendril with a heart
curling my feelings, of yesterday
thinning my dreams, into tomorrow

in wisdom, paired tall

Of Solid Gold

in glitter it wore hats
of crimson words
in meaning it bore stories
of velvet shades
love yet was not, nor ever
of solid gold

Stones, rolled down her eyes
And the meadows, found a sky
Rain clasped wanderlust leaves
Rolled up a breeze in her moment

Gravitate

by Venkat

off they swirl, your spinning words
between brows, into spaces
meanings bright, meanings dark
Some I read, some too far
gravitate me yet, on orbits apart

Drops, they rained, cavalry in order and shine

Drops, they loved, million brothers divine

Clouds, in murmurs, shook in dance

Suspended in a lightning romance

Limerick – Fall

by Venkat

Mr. and Mrs. Bee went to skydive to be light

Balloons in belly of a sky, in suits tight

Lighter than air, thin as cloud

Feather landing on moon, proud

Quuen-in-law stung, they so fell back in fright

Limerick – Fear

by Venkat

She was an Amazon, nothing to fear

Rivers gave way, her step taps near

Mountains shrunk, melted cheese

Bowing down, low wild white geese

Earth quaked and ate her, no tear

Limerick – Lies

by Venkat

Mrs. Android went to see where truth lies
She surfed through Google sea, being wise
Truths from cocoons be lies in bits
Lies from cocoons be truths in hits
She nodded, ‘Lies are truths written by mice’

Limerick – Age

Limerick – Age
‎01-Dec-2017

-by Venkat

Wrinkles they stood up, lined in stripes
As tigers they held voices, hollow pipes
Life’s jungle, dark stripes in white
Grew eyes to paint the night
Age in shooting aches, gives best wipes

by Venkat

8th Nov 2017

Note the position of the word *do* in each line

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

do we grow bones of mind
or do we mow grime off thoughts
did they do life for horses
or did they do eyes for our hands

Hi Esteemed poets/friends/readers,

As a long time contributor here, I would like to share the launch of my site on learning Good English Usage. I would like to extend it to include creative writing in future – for the larger benefit of those keen to enhance their writing skills.
