— Hungry–

hot molten golden lava,

snacking on earth and rocks,

ran down the hill,

to take

a cold bath

in the

ocean

below.

—————————————————————–

overdue, overfilled,

heavy black cloud,

having given birth

to rain water,

disappeared

in the sky.

———————————————————-

I am with friends,

I am still lonely.

I am in a crowd,

I am still lonely.

I am all alone,

now I am not lonely.

————————————————————-

waves,

big and small

trying to escape from the ocean,

swimming furiously,

came crashing

to the shore,

only to be captured by the

sand and the rocks

and

pulled back in

by the ocean

yet again.

———————————————————————

Ocean water,

flew high above in the sky,

becoming,

water laden heavy,

thick black cloud,

Then

it transformed itself

into pouring rain,

disappearing

into the ocean,

becoming

ocean water

again.

———————————————————————–

Having returned home

after a day’s hard work

on a hot humid day,

tired sun

was greeted

from a spacious pink horizon,

by

a shy blushing

twilight.

—————————————————————————–

twins,

life and its death,

visible and invisible,

born on the same day, at the same time.

life’s dark shadow-day and night

death is omnipresent,

always lurking, threatening,

Death is an enigma.

Is it ugly or handsome,

tall or short, slim or obese, happy or sad,

black, white or brown, young or old,

handsome or ugly, a man or a woman?

Ruthless cruel death

kills the body then steals the life.

Does death have a life?

will it be more humane now?

— A child —

so innocent, so pure, so beautiful,

God must be child-like,

Otherwise he would be

too sinister,

too calculating,

too logical,

too cunning,

too human.

no, no, no.

God can be nothing else but

A child.

—————————————————————–

— Late —

he was never absent,

he was never late,

always on time, all the time,

Then one day,

not only late he was late,

but was also absent,

because that day,

he was busy,

attending

his own

funeral.

Holi festival

It was a crisp clear blue sky,

not a cloud in the sky,

there is no mist,

there is no trace of a rain.

Then suddenly

there was this explosion of colors

all over the place, splashed in the air above,

forming a beautiful colorful rainbow.

This got to be a holi-day,

what else can it be?

yes, of course it is holi- time of the year.

Holi is near.

Holi is here.
