Timeline







The fine line drawing was beautiful

The intricate detail showing the finesse of the artist

With compelling desire to touch the lines 

I stretched my hands 

Fingers running on the lines

The lines of memories 

Each line a memory of pain and pleasure 

The face in the drawing resembled mine

I looked down to see the signature 

It was written "time".

THE ONE





Scorching heat burnt the skin

It was unable to burn the memories

Oscillating between the past and the future 

Knowing their futile attempts

Although aware, I still act

Enduring the pain and pleasure

I try to find the Unchanging One

Alas! The veiling power of the world obstructs my vision

Preventing me from discerning

I and the "ONE" are the same

Hide and seek




Recycling thoughts appeared once again

Suffering in pain I wondered 

What is it that I am holding on to

Objects, feelings and sensations 

Play hide and seek 

Life laughs and says catch me 

I try to, but in vain

Losing  gracefully I realise

All that is left is fragrance of love

Glistening waters






Aquamarine water glitters under the sun

Naughtily winking at me 

Teasing my toes tempts me 

Promising to hold me 

Resisting the temptation 

I look back to see

All the things I love 

Holding on makes sense

Fear of unknown bars my move

I pause..

Seeing everything 

Letting go of myself

Now I am the water and the waves

I am the ocean and the sky 

Witnessing the merger 

I stand alone

Clouds of memories




When cloud laughs 

I run fast 

Scared of the rain

Washing away the memories 

When sky rips open

Engulfing me with water

I lose my identity 

Freeing my memories 

With the wetness of love 

I laugh at them

Now they are the cloud 

I am the sky

Untouched by time
