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

Fever, like a wound,
twist of heat and burn,

we use to follow the stars home, we once
thought the Morning Star a god,

Lucifer was once tangled in love,
of Venus hue.

Moulds Polyhedral

I am you in every light

in every bone, on every night

You are me in every mirror

in every dew, and every river

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

and eyes linger in deep caves

when snow flows into the heart

palms in love with fired coals

petals I saw as broken
when the sky was young
broke in my heart

till your light blew
resplendent upon tears

Between words

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Between words

Between words
When spoken, are the painful pauses
The hidden meanings
The thinking time
The space to ruin it all
With a trite response
A hurt reaction
When written?

found dreams to taste

snuggled soft

Stick me not

    Silky mountains

by A. Marie

Heavens crowd me, preachers press on, gurus
Take me outside and lay me in grass to feed me
(They all lay claim to me),
Hastened as monarchs in their migration
For the sweet milkweed.

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

Waves, they rolled
       on yesterday’s sand
Waves, they filled
       footprints of the heart

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

When your eyes

by Venkat


Life is a hen
In search of its chicks, hidden around
Through tunnels
Across rivers
Around mountains
Over seas
On clouds
Into dark planetary space
In thick jungles

Will your wisdom match, a love I know

Let Me Find

Let me find the snowballs
Rolling down this mountain of work
To feel my knees still, on eyes of wonder

And the clouds below
Spilling from my papers
To bring this mind, back on my pen

Self Inquiry – Part 3

by Venkat


As falsity flowed into truth
A river merged into an ocean
And I felt my toes, smooth as water

As the bad came into good
Young drops tapped into a river
And I felt the fingers, shine as water

I found my falsity
And felt the earth, I never touched

Under the skin of good
I found the bad
And felt a pulse, I never knew

Of conical homes
We call life

We slide upon
By gentle breeze of reason
Towards each other

Every opening

Rise, these eyes, as feathers rise
Fly, these truths, as clouds fly
Stop, these shadows dark, as birds stop

I went
Into miles of speeches

Till I felt the edge of silence

Double Lives

Born in a joy, pure
Of a single spirit
Now we lead double lives
With an egoic twin
Of our own
