Lament


Slender fingers,
piano reeds,
should well satisfy –
all one’s needs.
It’s strange instead
to see them gasping,
with fingers thick,
as they keep WhatSapsping.

Endless — Haiku

why? I wish I knew–

endlessly waited for you–

deserted seashore…

Wary

near burning ground,

vultures flap wings in their nests —

camera wary …

Promise — Haiku


drenched in rain I wait,

unable to find shelter —

don’t fail, she had said …

Vowel Correct


To live,

I believe,

is not a great idea,

when it is time …

to leave.

Crow


A crow I’m told’s a smart lil’ creecha

Which can master, all thachew teecha

Except for singing

For by its upbringing

A crow is supposed to caw excreecha.

 

Poem


A poem a day
Keeps poetry away.
A poem long
Is love without song.

Gastric Pains


Newspapers are known for their crazy newz
Along with garbage and other refewz
Consuming newspapers for breakfests
Invariably causes tummy upfests
But many there are who
Eat more than twenty two
Newspapers every aawa
And suffer ailments seveawa
Their reasons I don’t wish to know I fears
It’s best that I mind my own affears
But I do believe that this wretched earth
Without newspapers will dance in mirth.
