Cobbled Clutter(a senryu)

weary soul trudges clanging on cobbled clutter of life's edifice

Circle of Life

Lot of water, Under the bridge has flown. Gusts of wind , They have blown the sand away. The verdant bush, Trimmed but has grown all the way. The flowering blossoms, Bloomed to scatter their seeds afar. Bees buzzing, They have found new petals. The twittering birds, They have found new nesting grounds. The hibernating… Continue reading Circle of Life

Shadows have remained

You leave pieces of yourself, Scattered everywhere you frequent, And your memories are suspended in time. Every life that you have brushed up against, Lives with an imprint of you, That is trapped in their mind. Time may change you, But your memory forever remains the same. It's like leaving each place, That you have… Continue reading Shadows have remained

An enigma

She loved herself, And the world did not love her for it. Her radiance shone bright, And the world eclipsed her light. She flew so high, And the world clipped her wings. She sang aloud soulful songs, And the world muted the melody. She dreamed to dream, And the world shattered her reverie. She smiled… Continue reading An enigma

A Tale

Letting go

I held onto things tight, Never letting go of it, even if my fingers hurt, Letting go of it, I would be losing a piece of my soul, Turning into a person unknown. But, A cataclysm, I set it all free, My heart filled with incandescent hope, I took solace in fleeting joy, That taught… Continue reading Letting go

Long time ago

Winds whispered into my ears, The tales of time long ago, Reminding me of things, That were no more. I thought That I could leave it all behind, Nonchalantly surging ahead. But those tiny wisps, They kept floating back. I see my life barren, The sturdy trees of yonder, That blossomed with love to the… Continue reading Long time ago
