First Thing The Thought


Ink comes next.

A white sheet of paper

and then an idea comes from far above

landing on my sheet of paper

like a heavy drop of water

falling suddenly

as a warning for a heavier rain!


It’s a storm which captures the inspiration

for a night, ‘till the ink is over.

Then it’s dawn

my pen bends

and I fall into a deep sweet sleep

within the perfumes of poetry.



Travelling Bird


My handwriting is faster

than the books’ typing

And text editing.

Ideas keep falling

on my head

like rain


that becomes


a stormy chimera.


Sensations come before my thought,

even before pain!

My look starts from the end of earth

my heart gives rhythm to my pen

my blood is like endless ink

never erased by the wind.

I travel upon detached icebergs

with a torn shirt for a sail.

The smiles of polar animals

are my company

and I feel


safe and cosy


on my long journey!



Immature Love


I was seeking for your lightning glance

day and night

I fell in love with you and forgot

my love for school!

My daily route


turned to a fixed orbit

leading to you only

and when our eyes meet

your look captures me

and I paralyze!

I’m confused…!


I don’t know what to do or say..!

I get delirious saying tales

to overcome my bewilderness.

The moments with you

inspired hope to me


in the long road of love.

My senses function,

my eyes talk before I even open them!

My heartbeats

don’t let me talk!


Cloves fall from my hands

 and I rush home

longing for dawn! Expecting to meet love!
