Unexplored Wilderness

by Venkat


These footholds
Laid by your education
Hardened, with feet
Of able followers, of past
Traverse so, one side
Of my wild world

We are birds, in flight
On varying heights

You see clouds
I do not

Life Scripts

by Heather's Starting End




“Subconsciously aware or consciously unaware”
The script of my life that’s composed each day.
As the seconds sweep by that just don’t last,
As the hours turned day, that I just let pass

The pleasure of love hangs still in the moment,
The moments of sadness when pleasure gets hung
A balance of chapters in our lifes book
Moments like these that go unsung

We are pigeons
Neither at the sky
Nor on the earth

A pigeonhole for each

Elements of Wind

by Heather's Starting End


Daunted by the wind
She is not,
Comfort in opposition
In which she can rise

Unlike the Man
She is
The bird of nature
Fixated on the mission
Of her flight

Clock On The Wall

by Venkat

O clock on the wall
You move on, never slow
As I rise in life or fall
Your lesson, I need to know

Your hands never stop
Never caught in past
Into future you never drop
Only the present does last

The Voice

One day I had a visitor
I don’t know from where it came
A voice to keep me company
In my loneliness and pain

I thought it nice to have a friend
Who seemed to be with me most of the time
I learned too soon it’s reasons
For taking residence in the corners of my mind

It began to tell me how easy it was
To give up and just let go
Put ideas inside my troubled mind
And the thoughts began to grow

Empty Wisdom

by Venkat

Thoughts green and young

Wings of love, passion

Tuning a song unsung

Life, a drop in an ocean

A journey best half way

Actions toward an end

Sunlight best, middle of the day

No road good without a bend

Our World of Relativity

by Venkat

The meaning of matter
In the eye of mind
Sometimes long, sometimes shorter
Contradictory to find

To man’s alarm
The nature of real
At times harsh, at times warm
An illusion, brutal

Whatever stands today
The way of life
Remains present or goes away
A paradox across humanity, rife

“Which One Is It?”



The black sun deepens upon earth’s face
Mercifully reaching to the core of my soul
And binding up my heart—
Mother Earth is breathing under my feet,
Dreaming like God for its fullness to be
I feel her suffering as my fingers trace
The dying child, the empty womb, recalling
A paradise forgotten—
This crevice, this rock from where I watch
Hide me between awe and pain
Like a crying harp—

Secret of Limitation

by Venkat

Man seeks to be free forever

Wanting things unbound

Removing every border

A pursuit he thinks sound

A feeling for more and more

He looks to find

A limitless dream to adore

Unsatisfied in his mind

Purpose of Life

by Venkat

From my archive…

To some, life is love

A way to happiness

To some, a white dove

An inner peace to bless

To some, life is power

A chance to command

To some, a fragrant flower

With nature and woodland

Sorrow: Haiku.

by Author

You can contain only that

much joy in you, as much as

sorrow you’ve been living with.
