A rainless day in museum terrace

Highlights a beautiful sepia dusk

There, we separate with no goodbyes

just leave long grey shadows

And continue the adventures


No scar

We name some bitter hurt scratches within

as a precious poetry of maturity

We need pain anyway to reinforce our fragility

Because only scars the proper tonic

To endure all typhoon of life.




Golden moonlight sweeps across the attic

Gilding the heart, fully romantic

And inside the sphere

Vividly seen as if near

A pareidolia

A Chinese hare

Sending a stare


A longing heart

Heading to a gleaming you


My love,

16.844 kilo meter from here

I clearly hear the melodious heartbeat

Pounding from your beautiful chest

A sweet lullaby

Mentioned my name repeatedly

Caresses the ear skin

Albeit, the voice a bit faint. 


Sublime Tears


Your sublime tears

A melodic rain, flows within the ocean of my heart

watering each and every niche

watering the barren land of

misunderstanding and jealousy

purify the murky waters of emotions



Your sublime tears

A God’s whisper

Pearly drops of divine strength


A Chiffon Universe


It was a chiffon universe

The smoothness caressing our bare legs

A joy journey in golden balloons

No high tension, no depression

Everyone was selfless

Taught my soul about the genuineness


The childhood’s fantasy recedes

The reality crawls into sleeps

A chain of events, etched in memories

Pearly bracelet of hardships and happiness

And the pure heart endlessly fights…..
