THE LUCENT MEMORY

Do you remember?
Those moments on the chariot of time?
Our mystic eye pupils
wandering from place to place
Decoding the grammar of life

Do you remember?
The slanting rain falls on the cedar tree
The ravishing spectrum of all sweet languages
in the terrace and terrains
The fragrance of jasmine in the ardent spring
The doldrums of light and sound

Do you remember ?
The encounter of your love in the traffic square
The flash of light beam on the car window
Once upon a time we were the equestrians
Now in a deep slumber only questions !!!
Do you remember ….?

 

IN BETWEEN YOUR WORDS

In between your words
You stopped a while
may be searching for something
in the exuberance

You looked towards the sky
then down the ground
You tapped your right foot in a rhythm
With a sync of the spoon on the cup

In between your words
You travelled a lyrical valley
May be the last line of your poem

In between your words
You dazzled and became
a star with the aura

In between your words
You became a river
With the rainbow of emotion

In between your words
You became silent and paused a while
With the lucent satin smile

In between your words
You stopped awhile
And perhaps in the mood
to express the paregoric melody

You gave me a paper
a poetry , on the throne
That you have scribbled last night

In between your words
You became an angel
Holding your pen as the magic wand
And I got the universe in one moment- – – – –
