anemone

Gorgeous flower anemone,

Body is venomous,

Pretty faced hegemony

As the prey approaches,

Brilliant coloured anomaly,

Overwhelmingly odorous

As hidden mouth ravenous

Probes its victims body,

Consuming carnivorous,

Holding in pink tentacles

In enchanting paralysis,

Entirely lost

In gorging flower anemone’s

Colourful nemesis.

prototype

A broken thread of trust

Must knot and knot again.

A dark indelible stain

On a white sheet is shame

And boughs that will not bend will break,

Volcanic emotions erupt,

Fiery tempers incinerate,

Still waters run deep,

Resolutions stand like rocks,

Careers at their peaks,

Civilizations that rise must fall like waves,

And males and females in fact

Like opposite poles attract.

 

Prototypes in nature

Frame our very circumstance,

Fix our reflex,

Are the alphabets 

That spell out our context;

 

For problems do resolve like solutions,

Crises precipitate,

Catalysts are also human agents,

Chain reactions can devastate,

In history as in chemistry,

As elements compound 

So issues complicate,

Like an organism

Ideas too can proliferate,

 

 

How curious

that physical analogies

Ring true of our predicaments,

Exist like primordial metaphors,

Define our contours;

The paradigms reaching across

A far flung cosmos.

 

 

comet

Comet in the sky

You smite me distant traveler

With some strange nostalgia,

Far away going away

Every night for a while.

 

Comet in the sky

Your light has tanned

My naked eye,

Touched my retina

With a new age,

Burrowed into my mind.

 

You surprise

Like a distant train

In the wilderness

Hurtling on its way.

 

Siberian crane

You fill me with compassion

For your lonely furious pilgrimage

To another millennium.

 

Visitor from another age,

Your searing glorious passage,

Primordial image,

Like a messiah come

To  disturb our settled equilibrium.
