unerased stubbles no
plant no kiss
your stubbles hurt
its been days
you razed 'em...

...worry not
come closer
allow me erase 'em
I got a new eraser
that you bought last year

...and then
the little girl
dropped new one
and wiped droplets
rolling down
on old flesh...

Munching Words

dump these words down your gut
you idiot
and ask for nothing more
they said
and I munched and munched those short and lengthy flicked at me
till I floated
friendship of the rich toward me
would never elope with dictionaries of the world
they but did
and I died
while waiting for a friendly burp off their palms...

Distant Breeze breeze from distant fields
that used to reach me easily
now battles with towering billboards
without resistance
flies away
toward unknown skies...

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

a child at heart
a man of love
ventricles and valves 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...

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
