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

Marmalades, mellow
Etched eager endeavors
Love laced lazy lakes
Odes, oranges, olives
Dustless doughnuts
Yesterdays young
