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

Winds, in a caress blew

    leaves in new fears

Nights, in winds drew

    stars in new tears

Sticky World

by Venkat

Stick me not

    Silky mountains

    Rivers of tulips

    You love robed, in white snow

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

Come, a cocktail for you
For your mixed feelings
In this hurricane of words

When the skies were wide
And you longed for a game
You loved to stir thoughts
And floated on cubes of wonder

The poet and some troublesome words

by Jem Croucher


As a candle burned into the night
the poet played a game
Chasing words that tried to hide
behind the flickering flame

But however hard the poet tried
he could not catch but one
The words were quick to disappear
as they were having fun

Fair Trial

by Venkat


Us, sane of the mind
Found reasons balanced, for law
To make trials fair and kind
To warm hearts, on sentences raw

The New Year Prayer

by Venkat


These prayers I send
as birds into the sky
Gentle, as flowers bend
to lift clouds from the eye

The Walk

by Venkat


She took me on a walk
And I walked so, on her mind

For moments, it felt water
As I sunk with stones I carried
In my feathered heart
Till I flapped those limbs
To hold edges, back in the eye

Who Am I

by Venkat


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

Lose to Find

by Venkat


To seek freedom, I flew
But these waters, blue
Held my sky

To seek light, I flew
But these waters, amber
Held my Sun

Child of Time

by Venkat


This thought
A child of time
Has no roots, to hold
Has no fruits, to bear
Then come its sisters
And it finds roots, to bear
Then come its brothers
And it finds fruits, to hold

We are birds, in flight
On varying heights

You see clouds
I do not

Shades of Fire

by Venkat


As a spark
This mind flew
Into distances
A meteor, streaked
Fuelled by happiness
In finding shades
of the dark, around

A Jolly Ride

by Venkat


So we all came
for this jolly ride
In perfect, soft shoes
but with a care
to tie those laces

Feelings, Unpunctuated

by Venkat


As the strings
Wrote a song, on my mind
An army of thoughts
Took positions

Rise and Fall

by Venkat


Love, I thought

was from sparkles
in shooting fires
across the dark

September 13, 2015


by Venkat


As marbles we were rolled
Upon this fresh soil called life
Some large, some small
Some fell on silk
Some on grass

Thought is a Bird

by Venkat


Thought is a bird
In these hands
Wings flapping

Thought is a bird
With one home
Seldom on same branch

These riches
These feelings, I sailed on
Of solid gold, held so, these eyes
To gloat in the gains
Created in bricks of sweat
Of yesterdays

your colors, I chase
to capture those pixels
in every inch

A poem in hand
has worth beyond measure for
clarity of mind

June 9, 2015


by Venkat


Being lost, I fear
Thoughts rolling, off this mind
None in hand, to grip
This world speeding away, deep
into my ears

Bare Bones…

So these hands, held
these eyes
from falling off
these bones of success

Empty Spaces

by Venkat


Pain, you are the answer
You show the empty spaces, around me
You show the empty spaces, within me
You show the empty spaces, I thought were full

The New Ice Age

by Venkat


As Earth spins into seasons
We spun snow upon our feet
Immobile, white with frozen eyes
We breathe through cones
A smile, melting into our teeth

Deep Thought

by Venkat


Take root, deep thought
You have the same soil to hold, everywhere
You have the same stalk to traverse, everywhere
You have the same shade to give, everywhere
You have the same fruits to taste, everywhere

by Venkat


These thoughts
These feelings
Flowers, upon thy hands
Hold pollens each, under wraps
Of two spirits, in one
