Be.

A bee sat on a flower,
A soft pink fading into shades of white flower,
Gentle and fragile and full of life flower.
It wasn’t what the flower wanted,
But as the bee took it’s nectar and left
Leading the flower to its withering and eventual fruition,

Time

I am a merchant of dreams, a buyer of lives,
You can’t refuse to sell but you get to name your price.
He said, “I will take your life one way or another,
What would you like to die for if you had a choice?”

I Wander

Sometimes there is no choice but to explore the world
For it helps you explore yourself.
No, I am not wandering to find myself,
I know who I am.
I am an explorer.
I wander like you breathe.

Someone For The Sunrise

Not a neophyte anymore,
I have been around for a while.
My eyes are deep for they have seen life,
They have seen the storms and the sunrise.
When you are stuck in the storm
Without a sailor or a soul to guide, you realize
You alone and on your own are enough,
And after a few storms I figured
I never needed anyone for the ride. Continue reading “Someone For The Sunrise”

Such Is My Idea Of Life

No one to please,

No one to disappoint
But the ones I chose out of love
And out of love alone.

No possessions to lose,
Nothing I need to find to be wealthy
But only the things that are priceless,
Things one can never lose once found. Continue reading “Such Is My Idea Of Life”

A Snowy Day

LittleĀ piecesĀ of clouds
Falling from the sky
Covering all I see In a
white blanket of snow.

As I see from the window
The valley turns white
Like a blank canvas,
The world a blank page.

Dreams Depreciate

 

I went to the pawnshop
Offered my dreams as collateral
Pawnbroker showed no interest.

I tried to tell him that they were
Perfectly good dreams,
They could give really good returns
To someone who can pursue them,
I am just not in that place right now
Surely he could offer a decent value against them,
I am good for it!

Considerate

No, he didn’t drink to lose himself
He drank to find himself.

On those blurry nights,
At the bottom of the glass
The veil of practicality lifted from reality
And he could meet the side of his
That lived on the other side.
