Vampire city
of Volterra
eclipses history
newmoon comes

darkness extends
Voldemort reigns
Harry in harrowing distress
no respite in sight
despite I fight
methane poisons
the mushy fountain
legs shake
golden chain
iron fist
breathless forever
tugged in war
losing and winning
travel on cycle
tasteless truth mocks
the Kathleen cakes
haze and clarity
two sole seasons
in between a slice of reason
break down more and more
doubt your self-worth
sudden splash of resurrection
on your divine lips
as Cinderella builds
her own castle to live.

Bed Cover
Postman Sep 2017

Blue heaven like cotton cozy
bountiful of blooming poppy
soaked in azurine shade,
sensual floral wreaths crawl in.


Sky colored little leaves
kiss the spaces in between,
snowy laces like balloon strings
swing free in a suave stream.


Few flaws have added to the grace
we know with time novelty fades
in reverse proportion comfort swells
peacefully I sleep on the florid bed.

On An Adventure
Postman Aug 2017
I am on board on a train
silently making noise
as it crosses miles
amidst wet and velvety green
at times charming spring
sometimes like a romantic dream
or a novel better than the best
often sailing through the blazing sand
like an Arabian adventure 
it feels as the desert drills 
my soaked pores to sow 
the dry seed of aging
as I go on living like a carefree kid
at the doorstep of sweet sixteen
though the real past 
has been anything but
aim based frenzy fragments 
into frivolous pursuits 
Dos and don'ts clouding vision 
lazy days slipping out of hands
it's time to take a decisive action
that is to determine whether it will be
a terrible death on the sandy Sahara
or a walk in the Himalayan clouds.

Fire and Ice
Postman Aug 2017
Laced with serene green ivy,
the entrance was inviting,
the red walls were screaming passion,
as the invisible fire, you were igniting.

Heavy rain drops and droplets started singing against the glass, before us,
like a maddening-meditating-musical.

The fire of love within my heart,
heated you up to a level that
you were not comfortable.

Then those soft water-drops
and suave droplets
hurled on the glass as they froze into
rock solid chunks of lacklustre ice.
Warmth was gone and
it was freezing outside.

The unwelcome chill dared to come in, and brushed against our heated skin.
I shuddered and clung to your steady arm,
the air amidst us was so divinely thin,
that I could inhale you in,
the intoxicating scent sent my mind in haze,
and just there and then sneering fire
broke out, determined to burn us down.
Out it froze even more.

The freezing chill out and
the heavy flames in,
dazed my senses,
helpless indecision
held me stock-still.

The roller-coaster ride of romance
shook me up and out my daydream.
Your love lit such a fervent desire,
that your reality backfired.
Your icy stare and freezing glare
waged a war against my flair.

The ecstasy that your warm spring
flowing as a sweet little stream
down in my heart,
gave birth to a new me
who is now set to die
either in fire or in ice.

Mountains

Hazy veil
of mazy
grey-white-jade
abstract cumulo tangle
quasi-close to the ground
accentuates the beauty
of the mighty river
at the edge
of a dangerous
denim cascade
leading to a free fall.


At every step
fading spiral shades
of lighter hue
entrenched in white
rashly caress
those fine
fascinating fringes.


The rugged rocks
hugging dusky tone
have fought
the flowing frenzy
of the heavy fume,
tried in vain
to obstruct the drain,
but at the end
laced the azure
with a golden chain,
witnesses the green
that grows within.

Equation of Wants
Postman Jul 2017
The warmth of a bonfire is what I seek,
amidst the chilly alpine milieu, under the sky,
a sky that is clear and dark at the same time.

I wish for the densest darkness
as I yearn to witness the brightest glimmer,
the lucid shimmer of the twinkling starlight,
unmarred by a circuit of city-light.

Misty monsoon in a cup of coffee,
in search of milk-warm sunray
with reasons rolled in a scroll,
entwining fantasy on the window pane,
craves for a life as easy as it was
in the book of the binomial theorem.

Scenic Shelter

I am home to the twilight candour,
greenish glamour of the lake below
shimmers in restless ****** thunder,
the white splashes in youthful splendour.

I am crowned with the sun's dusky ruse,
golden galore on the plethora of pine above
in contrast with deepening darkness under,
seeking a wand of wonder to port the cruise.

Chirping spring entwines fragrant coriander
emerald water kisses those shamrock shores
seaweed shades hug the valleys by the lake,
fantasy and reality blend in riverine meander.

The nook of ravishing rendezvous resides
right at this heaven that hides from you and I,
lotus petal like eyes sweeten the salt in sea,
after the storm like a shelter the land smiles.

Dare I care not and

Slaughterous suspicions
conspire to drown the ship
in recurring torrential rain.
Colourfully calm, I'm

would never know, love lies in
my core for guiding me
to the shore.

Brighter Side
Postman Aug 2017
On the balcony I stand
and let my eyes sway
to the sandy waves,
swathing in the moonlight.

The ancient empire that was buried under
the suave sand had been witnessed by
the moon of mountain from a distant land.

The endless tract of greenlessness
under the sparkling platinum moon
is brushing with the hands of air
and making the magnificent dunes.

Mind widens as you witness its wideness
unlike the sea it presents you with quietness.
If you are seeking happiness
this rough terrain will show you,
life isn't after all that hard for you.

Black and blue
of deeper hue
in a swirling fashion
brags milky feral fringe,
in unruly disks
of seamless league
smaller to big
climbs higher up the sky
with zealous urge to ski
goes farther than the blurry gaze
morning sun hides in a haze
when the mazy storm
boasts her rage
as man even today fails
to be able to cage
the natural irreverence.

An Atypical Approach
Postman Jul 2017
Twists and turns,
gorges and meanders,
war against
the watershed
in a relentless desire
to be one.


Complication
is simple
as simplicity
cofuses.


Amidst the maze,
there's barely any haze,
every turn has an end.


A straight long highway
though goes undistorted,
won't let anyone see
what is there ahead.


Eye-sight is sure to fail,
the sight before those
who took the easy trail,
won't either be a help.


As they won't dare to accept
their wise unreasonableness,
dismissal of the their realness!


The righteousness
of the outer world
is enough
to ruin the natural reason
that reigns the land that lies in
the inner world of
green-seed possibility.


A leisure walk
in a labyrinth
doesn't promise a destination.
Then,
there's the threat to be lost.


Confusion
is a constant company,
as advices echo like an earworm.


As there's none
to pat your back
and millions of fingers
pointing at you,
with some dreadful derision.



You end up losing
the slightest peace
as
the precious perennial spring
refuses to flow
in ephemeral unbelief,
repentance wrecks
the very zeal of exploration.


The desire to reach the core
may sink
before meeting the shore.


Doubts may loom
as early as
you step out of
the wise path to doom.


Sometimes it may even seem,
the highway has all the peace
in its offering
for each
of us.


So at times,
the labyrinther meets
the mirror of mockery himself.


But
amidst the darkest of disdain
you must call
someone on the highway
in order to put the mazy route
in comparative sunray.


If
complexity
is your cup of coffee,
simplicity
isn't going
to make you happy.


For a change,
be a fool,
go deep down
the darkest wood.


Ask
the wise-you
to leave some space
for the fool in you.


Allow
the fool
to invigorate
himself
and
let
him
pluck the flowers
of courage
so that he can stand
the breaking barrage of
a game of illusions
called reality.


Okay!
Let's call it
what it is.


A story called life,
with a tiny
variance of choice
made by one
who
sought
an atypical approach!

Postman Aug 2017
I wish to climb up
the way of your mind,
at the peak of the mountain
peace nests in abundance
there from cascades
the charming spring
down the hill,
it becomes a river
when it hugs the plain
soaked in hope
spreads greenery
as it flows,
dances to the wind
that blows in
a rich rhythm,
the water rushes
in a fervent motion
to love the ocean

Blazing Blend
Postman Sep 2017
A child drew a league of orange trees
a fire brewing amidst a turbulent sea
a glass reflecting a transparent bunch
of yellowish unruly green grass,
in place of a pencil he had used his pain
to color the blazing land of vermilion wonder.
Two daughters sat under the blazing Sun
the moon like a mother gifted an invisible coat
that could barely hide the horse taking the ride.
So many colors flooded the frame
reflection of vulture seemed insane
an artistic piece drenched in
destructive Harley kissed the life with a new shade
but fortunately the vitality did not fade,
novelty massacred as the hurricane hurled
the north sea froze in challenge with the Saharan sand,
now I wish to have my own band.

Screaming Senses
Postman Aug 2017
In white
he was dressed
but all my senses screamed red,
dipped in scorching passion
as he came and stood before me
there and then, his plush lips made an O
as he uttered efficiently the word, hello
Oh! holy hell,
my feet went feeble and
my mind somersaulted,
Sudden hormonal rush
made me blush as if
I were a crazy, stupid teenager.
Oh! Please get a grip
my inner goddess pursed her lips.
His tongue rolled, the velvety sound
like a love song dipped in butter
oozed from his deliciously moist mouth,
it made no sense,
but left me soaked in sensation.
Sensuous sound of his voice
was like a melody of monsoon
on a vivaldian violin.
How I wished we were alone,
not amidst the **** crowd,
How I desired your hands
to discover my contour,
contour that craved for you.
Intense inclination induced by
what? love or infatuation?
I simply don't care, now
all I want is to have you right here.

The Breeze of Novelty
Postman Jul 2017
When one fine day,
from the dirt laced window of a public bus,
amidst the world's craziest crowd,
on a time that's least like a fairytale,
suppose, you see your city afresh
with an eye of an explorer, and
your life for a while turns into
an unplanned adventure,
a walk along the pavement becomes
a hike on an exquisite trail,
the regular rail invades the serpentine tunnel.


A city so very beautiful, you wonder, how come hides under the dusty veil of regularity!
Time throbs for a while as a random day inhales the sudden breeze of novelty.
The Sun and the shadow have all the colours trapped in one fine magical maze,
as the splash of monsoon moistens those thick bricks of dry pastels,
that's when I paint my city with the brush of my eyes and the hands of imagination.

The constant cloud cover hides
the picturesque panorama from
my sweet little scenic peninsula,
the wetland of unknown beauty,
the place where reigns the rain.


The cloud always keeps the veil on,
denies the Sun the right to shower
his warm ray to enlighten the land,
although the Sun's been aware of the
mystical treasure hidden down there.


Love and light have the potency to perceive possibilities,
and as you acquire eager yearning for openness,
no cloud can keep you confined to the dark dampness,
and yes, on a fine banal day my land meets her Sun.

Light rushes through her dark and damp valleys,
the ray of righteousness invading her veins
as my dear land encounters enlightenment,
the romantic reality fills her with the fire of fulfillment.

Amazement echoes through her as she greets
the leafy luster and the priceless pearls of those
candid moony mountains that pour magic on her.
The perennial spring of wisdom and enrichment
needs to ramify and rove to experience more.

Months and years pass and now she surmises,
the misty life at every turn surprises,
so she resolves to pursue that fine trait of life,
as she would never cease to explore
the finer version that still remains unexplored
inside her very self with the hope of
the other sun, that is yet come.

serenity soaked economic cacophony

The delightful dawn craves to curve the lips
in semblance of a seamless smile
