pressing into

her limbs in the blue and
ivory seas – the earth

The Wheel

by A. Marie

Inside this cir – cle, ten billion hands are pushing,
wheeling us around the universe,
searching for the light.

We have the torches, but the stars
we are not yet alighting, our agency stunted
by the promises of a silent creator.

From my window, I am watching the spectacle;
it is a ring of fire, plowing over the land,
a racing bright wind, burning and eating.

In The End

by Venkat

this path, of golden pebbles

has thorny copper leaves

in the end


this path, of a crushed heart

has a love laid, of fine arms

in the end

This World, A Seat

by Venkat

when fires dance in the sky

and eyes linger in deep caves

when snow flows into the heart

palms in love with fired coals

A fox
    head high, lips of a cave
    etched a rock

Linger

by Venkat

Drops of light fell
      on my eyes of snow
Drops of light, fresh and wet
Drops from shivering clouds
      clouds, of rain and thunder
They poured the same

The Owl

The dark hollow
of the silent night
Blew into fires of fiery red
Glowing her tucked wings
In molten fear

The Fire Within

by Venkat

image

The fire within, I hold in icy metal
melts every rock, laid high and deep

The lion within, I keep in a fox’s skin
fears no plot, schemed of evil design

The Jungle Book

by Venkat

image

For the deer, I waited as a lion
To the cheetah, I was too late

For the fish, I shot my eye as a stork
To the kingfisher, I was too late

Strange To See

by Venkat

image

A strange life this is, to see
A question not, of to be or not to be
In trying to be
We see not, what we are
In a pride to be
We see not, how we are
In a fear to be
We see not, where we are
In an agony to be
We see not, why we are

Who am I
To set my borders
When I know not
how far I could reach

Who am I
To choose my path
When I know not
where lies the end

Loop Poetry: Who am I?

by Venkat

Poetry challenge: loop poetry.

Who am I?

I am what I don’t see

See my existence unknown

Unknown as my fate to be

Life’s meaning from a question

Question to think hard and deep

Deep as the ocean in a mystery

Mystery to wake us from sleep
