Constant

by Venkat

orange nails, tiger’s last dream
red smoke, blues, wafered puns
age in its one piece monologue

Sounds

by Venkat

teardrops in red
two by two
estranged
paint one ground
in two worlds

If Yesterday Were a Door

by Venkat

if yesterday were a door
would you find her hand
where the sunset slid

if yesterday were a door
would you hold her smile
where the memories hid

Flight

acres on the palm
when fears grow thin
flights on a rainbow
of circular time

A Bite of Moon

doors melt in my eyes
fishes shiver in fright
if rabbits could count ducks
leaves would spread smiles

Homes

time is water
taped on an unbending light
these pages stand
high eyed frogs
nights hemmed on verdana

Mexico

by Venkat

moments they grow thick
deep pauses in mind
of fresh Nopal, the Mexican pink

held in a temper of love
fills this cupful of heart
in green, white and red
with sublime sounds

A Note

by Venkat

Hi All, it has been a really long time since I posted poems here. Recently I have been working on making music videos with Covid as the theme blended with my guitar compositions (to whatever extent I know to play). I am posting them in my wordpress page – https://quatrainpoems.wordpress.com/

It is not poetry in written form but then is there any thing that does not have poetry underneath? These music videos are a series as part of 30 days challenge I took on myself.

Arrows

by Venkat

arrows
arrows they bled tears
thin sheets of time
split words under water
in jawless whirls
nails in clouds fill my dream

these sheets of tender ink
leave words under stones
to colour these stitches
fetch love in threads

Meaning

by Venkat

time comes with a lid
no handles to hold
the night was a thief
dark thumbs to wear
kept dreams to count
love without doors
leaves but feathers
till days break aloud
to let in theives
for their tall times

you are the wall
you are the mother
you are the duck
you are the music
you are the night
you are the sound
you are the silence

Cosmos

by Venkat

the clever skies come soft
from cocoons of my words
the Sun has its coat aloft
in thick seas of thoughts

Relativity of Life

by Venkat

bright in gold in jars of silence

who hides in wings of time
ever open in bars of distance
to that omnipresent
relativity of life

where waters keep no shadows
where eyes see nothing

so does every stone
some peel with time
some need a hand

Squirrels

squirrels in a basket
shadows long for skies
caves coiled in bellies
munch on pin-hole rays

Pebbles

by Venkat

pebbles on a rustic eye
dophin leather on one
paired to a wrinkled bone
I land from Mt. Cloud
enroute to Dolphin bay

Someday

by Venkat

someday, memories will move
on fine turtle backs
who nailed our skies

someday, your words will come
in the woodpeckers’ ink
which wrote your song

Fences of Time

fences of time
with granite hands
fences of time
no shadows to bend
no stars to spare

Transposes

by Venkat

the lamps croak
their only short hymn
to limp into their buds
where only age dares
wit snug in its egg

Footsteps

footsteps, they tap my mind
footsteps, on the grooves
inches of sounds, snowflakes
bundles of drizzles, yesterdays

Sparrows

sparrows; wore my feelings
in echoes, squeaked my reason
they robbed scraps of my heart
into grey valleys of time

Fires

Fires, they blew sirens
Stones, uncreased in prayer
Fences, in unfolded black
Leaves, trace crude airs

Thoughts

thoughts are not born
grey dolphins in time
up from snake-holes
into clouds’ firm door

Haves and Have Nots

beaks, nudge time off cliffs
into arms, the skies made
roots, roll ambitions into hearts
for desires, the coats hide

memories shrill, floated violins
floated her words, oysters still
doors proud, on a half-lit path

Time

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