On Favoritism...

The artist collapsed in pain at the entrance of a large theater

with seizures all over,

where he was told to wait endlessly;

because, he replied

‘All Greats’ on being asked,

who was his favorite?

Sketched Heart

...draw me your heart...

Whispered She

He
a child at heart
and
a man of love
sketched 
ventricles and valves

...you still are a child...

She mumbled and left
without knowing
every painted artery and vein
had her name
etched on them
and the artist on hand
about to whisper
life in it...

Pageless Author

...absence of pages made him realize;
how poor he was, 

and he thought of being richest, 
while basking 
in glory of few words and verses...

Haiku

After a brief break; I, today squeezed time to allow me write a Haiku. Theme of this Haiku is on change of season. Seasons come and go, change our living, but existence of life does not stop.

showers float aloft –
southern breeze probe eastern sky
new wings pierce cocoon

Nudging Memories

...write not verses
on
trees
clouds and skies
birds and wings
eyes and cries
smiles and laughs
me
dad...

...of what use
will they be
when you won't be around
and
none of these would sing
but
nudge memories of you...

untitled pains...

...he kept on preaching
'time heals'
but his arrogance
hardly could hide
equated instalments
of
piercing tortures
he
bestowed on unwanted loved ones...

Stolen Kiss

...on a thick monsoon night
they both
hug
cuddle
do not kiss
listen favorite
humming in distant paddy
chew pinch of raw tobacco
have a spin
and
think of planting one on each other
just then
a thin shower steals her tender one...
