Black and green

on Tuesday, 14 January 2014

The departed chameleon
Under the Gulmohar tree
The yearning of it
Lies in green
Suffused in brownish yellow ochre ground

Embryonic season
Yet to arrive
Shades of the tree
 And the chameleon’s eyes
Still black
In the offing
For version of natures shades

In blossoming season
Soul of chameleon
 Is a withering petal of the flower
Fleeting towards the earth

And the full moon
Budding in reddish orange color
Prayer of parishioners

Terrains of sky and soil
Embroidered in black tinted green dream            


Boundary Wall

on Tuesday, 7 January 2014

Eyes struck to the peripheral horizon
Voices of invisible faces
Heard in my soul

Before the departure and way in
Crossing the corridor line
 Hop, hop on space and time
Living within the fortifications
In-house relations and external associations
They hang on
Like the earrings of gossip mongers  

Even after we vanish from the address
A seed disbursed by the bird
Sprouts in the forbidden partition
The dwelling walls expose countless stories
Akin to the signature of the nest
Resonance from cavity in the trunk
Testimony of the naked earth
An indigenous thought
Dissolving aromatic mist
In mud’s chore

 (6-1-14, to the boundary walls of my abode)
