a scuba diver,
stunned by coral display,
forgets his way back!

copying the sky, I
unable to stop the clouds,
reach infinity!

MAGICAL REALISM
Scoop up time enough,
From any second hand book shop,
Create a New Year!

BARRIER
Against flowing time,
Why erect a barrier?
Imagined New Year!

K Balachandran Dec 2017

On a journey now, am I hurriedly,
to the center within myself,
where I haven't ever tried to enter,
but has a yen to reach effortlessly
at an hour earliest, I can.
I can see how curious you are,
all dressed up and ready to go,
but strange, not going anywhere!

Will you show me the way
as you are dispassionate and calm;
I gather our partnership surely should work!
