Nest of Wonder

by Venkat

fires, they gleam in rings

on your fingers, molten in amber

winds, they clasp as chains
on your eyes, in hollowed homes

snowfall, dance in buried silence

your feet, dream of voices to hold

waters, they clink as fireflies do

your heart, drip thoughts in the dark

into empty stars

rockets, they swoop as eagles

losing wings of breath

this path, of golden pebbles

has thorny copper leaves

this path, of a crushed heart

has a love laid, of fine arms

in the end

grass, of soft fabric

        gave me the sky

when fires dance in the sky

and eyes linger in deep caves

when snow flows into the heart

palms in love with fired coals

when the sky was young
broke in my heart

       they rolled merrily
       with tongues
       on these ears

Drops of light fell
      on my eyes of snow
Drops of light, fresh and wet
Drops from shivering clouds

Waves, they rolled
       on yesterday’s sand
Waves, they filled

Waves, they gave
       a page to dream on
Waves, they took
       words of yesterday

        Moving in line
Scorpions on fire
        On my rocky wall

Your words

Your words
