hey there,

just back,
from my galaxy ride

the suns still being born
the stars being torn

void unending
lights all bending

the curl of the gravity
a few gamma ray bursts

firecrackers display like, in those fares
only brighter some million times square

this time around,
it wasnt my broom

just put on my dancing shoes
took a fouette

a twist, a turn
fifth position and a swirl...

took a deep breath
did a grand jete

and landed softly
on a stardrive

the universe, my friend
is not dark as they say
a boiling cauldron
with some brilliant interplay

of light and sounds
actions and reactions
chemistry with a dash of mystery
physics in all its grandeur
harmoniously chaotic

theres a pattern
and theres a design
beyond comparison
above comprehension

imagine your heaven
ice it with faeries
invite a few gnomes

decorate it with particles
and antimatter
break the entire wavelength
do a red and blue shift,

experience the doppler shift
exponential blackholes

and we still dont have the picture...

let the words fail
thoughts fade

dance of the worlds... fantastic!

Long unyielding nights
Soggy sodden memories
Untouched, cold latte mugs

Whiff of breath
Half opened lips
Stinging little moist

A noise, in that obscure corner?

Shadows of few dreams
Whispers of few laugh
Murmur of few tears

And yet, the emptiness…?

Clouded moon
Blurred thought
Misted vision

Did you want to say something?

A little sleepy
A little wakeful
A little glazed

Were those eyes washed with my name?

Dusk of desires

And yet, the longing…?

sometimes its very raw

Slow, tiring sunlight
Gradual rising moon
Deliberate dripping sky

Entwined fingers
No more strangers

Flickering strong flame
Roiling desire
Irrepressible indeed

The rains come, suddenly
Steaming off the rocks

Bathing the tress
Raw fragrance
Rising off the earth

Deep thunders
Roll in, in the distance

Dripping, drenched Nights
