Innocence

Night will feed the sleep 

sleep will feed the night. 

I will remain awake the whole journey. 



Remove the mask and look straight 

in eyes of evil dark and black 

across the street. 



Violence was lurking in corner 

dogs were barking non-stop 

somebody had shot the moon. 



Give me hand I watch the…

Question, Answer

You have nibbled and eaten raw 

scratching by nails 

talking of a pink rose syndrome 

under the corona of soft spikes. 



Someone talks to you in your brain 

guiding you to guillitone. 

Life was not worth any meaning, 

when questions were none. 



No one to resume, isolate green 

from the grains of empty…

What Ending?

Could not hold it, put it down. 

TIME. 

The words forget you, pass by. 

You remain standing on the brink. 

Now, now, where to go? 



Time avenges, walks on you 

and you cannot catch the breath, 

to fill the space between life and death 

life will not move, death will not stop. 

If not ready to live, death will not look like…

…… Must Unbelieve

No more the sun was hot. 

October shadows were clinging to hills. 

I was ready 

to speak, to negate and to kindle the dust. 



The issues were floating in the wind 

like bleached skin of the dying man. 

You could look through it and beyond. 



Do you think the ageless will die? 

The impotent rage will speak for the…

…… Distant Shores

Twilight song of a cuckoo 

taps the window softly. 

Gothic tree and drooping sky 

humble my thoughts. 

Past was me. 

I will know then 

why your hills turned away my clouds 

by shifting sands. 



Was it a colossal guilt of tomorrow? 

Which never wanted to become present 

and enter my house. 

But my…

You And Everybody

Again you made friends, words 

wanted to leave the paper blank 

for the parched lips, 

crying eyes, 

trembling hands. 



Missing stanzas, 

flowing river, 

rootless floats. 

You did not feel like- 

time filled you every minute, 

you were empty, poor. 



When you read the end 

you…

The Spirit

How long will it go 

this hurricane? 

Let me go, open the sails 

and put the boat on high sea. 



Water is deep and blue, wind is strong 

and I want to do it again 

Tonight I will break the vow of moon 

and bring it down. 



Who knows where I land 

the school of sharks 

or turbulent isle 

the…

Revocation

A grandson sails through the century 

jumps into the chair of grandfather 

and revokes the death penalty 

for the iconoclast who refuses to be alive. 



A truth should be deemed again 

to find the mystery of death. 

Between man and divinity 

lies the fiction 

which no body wants to write off. 



Green goes the sea in full…

Anniversary

Hydrangia was in full bloom 

when I left. 

Machine had failed me, 

when I was looking at the 

third eye of the sun 

in crimson sky of west. 



I was running away from myself 

keys were chasing unbroken latches 

the moon was yet to be born 

in blackness. 



The foetus turns 

strikes the womb with…

…… Stunned Me

It was dull green 

under the weather, 

foliage of a tall weeping Ashoka. 



All day the sun had beaten down mercilessly 

At night, under the shimmering shade of stars 

somebody left a body of a child 

wrapped in a red rag at the foot of the giant, 

where the roots were jutting out from earth like a basket 

to receive a birthday…

Revealation

Acid filters in the cords 

scathing the greens 

frightens the lamb. 

Tiger leaps from the bush 

to make a kill, 

body is cold, blue. 



Ants are dragging carcass now 

of dead beetle 

as an act of benevolence. 



White bones are jutting out of the sand, 

here the beheading was done. 



One rose…

Lone Journey

Goats and camels 

My caravan moves on sand dunes 

to cross the desert of hunger and want. 



Give a sharp prick 

draw the pure blood 

and don’t cry at the sight of violence 

in the sky 

I am not going to die. 



It is galloping dark 

there is absolute stillness in the air 

and I have fallen in…

Morsels

Talking of nameless and unhappy death 

I resume the pathos of recluse 

if not, what do I do after the sunset? 



The shadow themes are picking up 

and I am saying, 'No, I cannot do it, 

may not do it, will not do it.' 

I have been a drifter, did not grow roots 

between the desire and wish. I had been 

hopping from a thing to…

Retreat

Remember it not. 

Oblivion, 

Let it slide into cave. 

The annual rings of old wood are 

hurting. 

Tree of life burning inside. 



It cannot happen 

it can happen. 

There is no certainty. 

this is certainty. 



Bread with hoofs 

no butter, no udder 

no…

…… Small Gods

Shared my solitude, gave me comfort, 

the road, my prelude to a long journey 

moved with me. 



Sensual saints had a break midway 

bolting the stars, when bruised arms 

were building the shelter. 



An offering to genius was not accepted 

cold blooded murder of a dream. 

Overnight my hair turned white 

a genuine tale was…

Wish Rags

Into the dark enters the blue; 

a homeless song punctures the cloud: 

gentle grass was never so green. 



The colors start fading 

there was no other movement. Sun strides in. 

No going, no coming of pain. No propitiatory 

prayer of mine or yours. 

I seek the wisdom of a tree. 



Like hawthorn collecting the wish rags 

fluttering…

Tree Fall

They felled a huge tree. 

Some Druid feared that it had an afterlife 

and it sleepwalked at night 

but it was me. 

My tracery 

my shade. 



Beyond the sounds I had landed 

here as a seed. 

Today I am visiting my ancestral home 

my walls and my soil 

I am I was. 



I am in every…

Micropains

In troubled times 

he just walked away 

carrying the antiquity in briefcase…. 



The new man. 

Ending the anonymity of stubbornness, 

rejects the yesterday 

but I wanted not to be a participant 

of terrible decay. 



Who will understand? Enough was 

the midnight ecstasy, 

for in the hour of…

No Answer

Prisoner of praise 

was slave of anger: 

sucks the rival in high speed. 



The violence travels 

from roots to leaves 

The lake bleaches, puts out the skull 

a myth is washed out 

in complete agony. 

Give me the hemlock 

I am ready to burn inside. 



Crazy moon 

where did you…

Happy Valley Of Stings

I don’t fake the pain 

pain was me. 

A grafted rose opens up along the road rage. 



This was the city of my birth 

my oblivion, my reincarnation 

ejaculated from the dark. 



Here I found the golden dust 

nuggets of truth 

and the nostalgia of a broken moon. 



The marble white love 

and green bowl of…
