“OPIATE!!”

path

… Bound in the shallow of an existence,

Every move, safe-measured.

Every pleasure of half step;

Never daring the tide of an aching soul- half curious.

… Peering with soul-like gaze,

Looking, barely seeing.

hearing not listening.

Touching without feeling.

All senses dulled by the opiate of pain, lived or imagined…

… How now the Gordian Knot of my spirit untied?

Your unrelenting heart? Your stoic faithfulness?

Every moment in contemplation, a moment lost!

I am free… To laugh, to weep at all measures.

To try, to fail, to change, to grow.

I am free… To love and to be loved!! …

“ABUNDANT TRAP”

maxresdefault

I slept to the sound of water laps

amidst the doldrums

of life’s abundant traps.

Out of nowhere

you came to see

and woke me

from despondence’s nap.

Breathing hope into the cloth you kiss.

I found direction.

Escaped from all of these

without you there

on my side.

I would have died

drifting in that loneliness!! …

“YEARS AFTER YEARS”

DEPRESSION-122642

Darkest night on stormy sea ravaged,

raped and left to bleed.

A sea of tears, fathoms deep,

fed forever by eyes that weep.

Grabbing, clutching, chasing dawn,

confusion, madness, fear all around.

A little trace of light, the faintest beam,

beckoning softly as if a dream.

Cutting the darkest night,

offering hope and strength to fight.

Calming, soothing, urging on,

promising peaceful days beyond.

Battles rages…

Long and fierce nature wounds.

heart is pierced, agony gnaws,

like a dog with a bone.

No comfort on the sea alone;

but through it all, the light remains.

Burning brighter until it flames;

blazing its way straight into the heart.

Healing, warning, mending the parts-

together anew in the warmth of the glow.

Lifted and carried, the sea far below,

never again to drown in the tears.

The flame burns inside, years after years!! …

“MOLD OF EARTH”

45656187

… I stopped listening to the babbling of a brook!

I crept silently into a nest to look.

At wee hours unfeathered fledglings lifted up their head,

Expecting some morsel to be fed!

… I laid upon the grass and looked up into sky.

I watched the images of white clouds as they drifted by.

I wondered how sun could warm this mighty earth!

I knew with the depth of my soul that happened birth!

… I climbed a mountain high up to its craggy heights!

I looked over its wonder and saw mighty sights.

I watched children play hide and seek;

It seemed as if the world stood still beneath their feet!

… Ah, friend, open up your eyes and know;

No one but God can make these things so…

Only God could mold the earth and hold it in His hand!

He made it all, blessed it all, made human from sand!! …

“TRANQUILITY”

… Ah, the season, that season-

is upon us.

It is in this season,

I stand in solitude;

and when I come to you,

… transcendent of physical bondage-

… that I was born unto-

… and released by an almost perverse proclamation of piety!

… In front of your feet I place-

… the spirit of the eagle-

… the strength of the bear-

… the courage of the lion…

… With the help of our outstretched hand,

… I arise!

… With it you bestow mercy.

At once, I am poised in elegance next to you.

… We merge together, in this way-

… with the knowledge of the forefathers-

… we are fulfilled-

… following the sun-

… under their guidance!

Rejoicing as one, hand in hand…

… Now and forever, we live eternity in one dawn;

invested with the miracle of life!! …

“QUESTION”

What is inside me!

But what is the question?

I don’t know, yet to come.

Yet I have many answers.

So why am I so confused;

And can’t find the question?

Won’t have the answer!

Would too many questions-

Eliminate the answers?

And then…

What if the answers-

Have nothing to do-

Over heights, through chasms,

… Through celestial sends…

Through mist it speaks-

… To a challenged heart.

To stay, to go!

… The road, it starts.

To pull upon-

… Some hidden want.

Come free to life.

And will such the taunt restore me?? …

“METAMORPHOSIS”

A caterpillar single- mindedly weaves-

Slowly, methodically a cocoon lives!

Protection from the elements, so vile,

… So do I in an isle!

Feeling safe at last, he sleeps;

Stirring not, feeling nothing, not even she leaps!

The caterpillar goes through seasons that cast,

… So am I in contrast!

Spring arrives!

The cocoon slowly breaks, reveals and rives!

… THE BUTTERFLY…

His wings unfold for the fly;

Finally feeling freedom after strife!

… So shall I feel life!! …

“DUSK, ‘TILL FOREVER”

… On my soul, now nightfall,

Skimming the sphere of the Moor’s dismal…

Years of fields to wheel;

Nothing wished, hard to deal.

Scattered about, not to forget…

Turning, turning… no regret…

The eventide, the sky merle role,

And over the turns… the cape leave my soul.

Time to end love…

Offer no more… above.

Immerse in solitude of … heart-

… Dusk, ’till forever apart…

… Don’t pass under the dark trees.

Branches that descend to sweep the ground, sprees.

Motivation writhing then healthiest Kudzu’, clump-

Long hair sighted- dripping their chum.

Six foot copper blue wings spans, their branches gleam,

Their sordid scream…

A Mockery… trend-

Of long gone mornings… ascend!! …

“THE TRAP”

tnt

… He’s gone, yet his essence lingers.

To his absence, senses are altered in airs.

A damp earthy sweat from rumpled emerges;

When our passion died, the shroud that held our rages.

… I erase the evidence from out trysting place,

But to no avail I can erase.

Tapestry hairs and lints reveal;

Woven with love and lust still!

… From all visible encounters, the trap is clean;

Now and forever of what have been.

But how do I clean my heart serene?? …

… Love runs on water edge.

Foams of tenderness in water merge.

On a lily pad, flowers pledge.

Turbulent waves beat against the ledge.

Tides crossing with rage.

Season’s heart sends dewdrop with urge.

Waves tossing, converge!

… Blue waters on the banks chime.

Nature’s force washed so sublime.

Sought after each time!

As if love was co-herarsed with rhyme!

… Traveling on a cycle of true-

In water built for two!

As orderly splash, so blue;

Such a sensational dejavoux.

… Clamor of undertone, so insane.

Never to be sane or gain.

Memories of river of love in vain;

Watery, yet in chain!

Mysteries still remain!! …

“CRYSTAL OF TEARS, HERE”

tear1

From time to time

Rays so timid, yet sublime

Pierce the unusual gray sting

Of a wet spring

Where the crystal tears, here

Pass by you, I hear!

As they fall

Incessantly they crawl

Dripping while afraid

Streaming down, then they fade!

Lost, yet no more pure

fall on your shoes, then seek cure!

I pity your white tears;

What if it was near!! …

A cold darkness is returning!

The sound, the flame,

Has been dead ended, no blame…

… Why is it raining?

Darkness shaded- gaining!

It brings about sun,

Above all brightness of fun…

… Warmth and splendor of cloud,

Yet, no change in sound of thud!

I sit and ask, still;

Why is it raining? But it will!! …

… Not long ago, things were so frail!

Leaves fell silently upon a dusty trail.

Toucan sang a tune that no one could hear!

A snake sheltered quietly somewhere near,

Among the nature’s ground!

Oh, sweet friend, you’re not found!

… In the depth of forest wall is a sound,

From far distance in background.

The crackle of fire brings to me-

The eerie help of a crying tree.

The falling of nature in pain;

Memories of things lost in forest rain!

Death of friendship can not-

Be denied or sought.

Oh, the carelessness has a price to pay-

Of the few ignorant night and day.

With the sanctuary wall-

Justice reigns dismal.

Rainforest shall disappear!

So shall we, can you hear?? …

Where do you go when skies are gray?

Where do you hide on a rainy day?

Are you deep inside when there is no pain?

On a lonely night, where do you remain?

Do thoughts spin round your head?

Is there a place to hide from dread?

To freedom, I keep the key!

Scent of love I smell and see.

For just an instant, if I could wait;

Dreams locate my mind of late.

I will tell you where I hide,

If you tell me where you abide!

Is it beneath the purple stone-

Of my mind’s prison, the unknown!! …

… Coals glow in the trees;

Crimson, red, hot ember sprees.

Golden yellow, fiery orange, radiant green,

Melt into brightly burning copper queen;

And smoldering brown at the scene.

… Into a frenzy, wind scatters the leaves.

Forming restless dance in air and trees.

To do pirouettes in the haunted, smoky leaves!

… Autumn, elegant heiress arrives.

Overseer, to summer’s surprise strives.

Slowly, letting down her hair,

So the jewels would be aware.

So her crown of all seasons would not flare.

To shine brightly in fall’s wine-

Colored reflection of divine!

As in a thousand sunlit white shine-

As summer before her sign!! …

And some have spoiled and weeds have grown.

Like spring buds being born by sun.

Nor a dead,

Which they didn’t know

“REVENGE”

girlcrying

Anger and hatred embrace and mingle!

Insensible nerves beneath skin tingle.

Shimmering twilight does not ever last.

The voiceless man sings melodies of past.

The crunchy, parched earth is not at its best.

Dew is what thirsty leaves want for their zest.

Morning mist, tranquility, away from light,

Echoes of past ring inside ears with fright!

A soothing solace, not imageless face,

Righteous mind, not an unsteady case…

A thousand voices howl and call.

The legend is not about spring but fall.

Coming back to where you never left.

Finding things that have been reft!

Is it you, or me or the one,

Who’s stolen heart of beloved and sun?

The sparkling icepick pierces the eyes only.

One, two, three and more, angry and lonely.

Savor of revenge enlightens the air!

Depth of hatred is today’s share!! …

… A leathery, weathered face

… Stoic, sun-burned, no line will erase

Immobile, work-hardened hands

Clasped behind back as he stands.

Weary from the toil of the day

Endowing fields to lay!

With deepest, gazing eye

Sweeping the Western Sky.

Toiling to foretell and guess

Face unrevealing of plan, more or less

Made for sowing tomorrow

If the weather doesn’t bring sorrow…

… Bearing in his brain

The whimsical plain

And beguiling nature’s way!

He thinks what if his tools betray!

If the weather is unfit

For sowing wheat…

… Stand…

Face unreadable in that land!

Leaning against a tree
With shoulders that disagree!! ...

… I would ascertain keenly

the trace of unseen madness

In the fold of his immobile face

In his eyes that showed only emptiness!

… I wanted to open all doors

So the wind blow through his hair.

I would fake that sky was blue!

In and out, everywhere, I stare!

… Then I laughed at my own vision.

I could stop it, if I had only known

That there was a coast laid behind the doors

And there were many who felt very alone.

… Everything white and you were pale.

You were dressed in white, standing in dark.

And avidly should I see

Your slender, transparent body in spark…

…Then we saw together

The beauties such as sky and man

Which were mirrored deep in our eyes.

We had no way out of that projected plan.

… How strange that in this world

I only saw you, heard your song

But you were not a song, you were a man

An insomniac man for so long!

… that light that reflected from you

Was an obscure light

Which rose slowly like a fire.

And burned me all the way to bone.

From the morning sun, radiating the light;

Comes undone my bed that I unravel at night!

Memories of whispers, now silent.

A lost murmuring of laughter and content!

When the eyes sparkle in dewy rose,

The spirit of misty mountain flows!

Like you, they still hover around;

And call your name without a sound.

I want back the part you stole.

You smile bright, glowed like coal!

You left but still hounding!

In my head, you’re painful and pounding!

I still hear your footsteps in my room,

With your false promises, you add to my gloom!

I was blinded by a brilliant sunlight;

And didn’t see you evaporated into night!

Were you  ghost with secrets concealed?

I didn’t know your thoughts, you never revealed!

Dreams of you taking their toll!

Do ghosts die or just haunt your soul? …

Do you know who everyone really is?

Could you ever understand how they thought?

Did you ever cry when reading their poetry?

Did you know what was real or not?

With some their tears fill an ocean or sea.

But their hearts are true and pure like the diamond.

And forever is spoken with heir words!! …

That I am crushing my pride.

I am leaving my ease,

Which only pained my breeze!

Because I was naive,

Now I must grieve!

This is a better way-

Not having listeners who betray!

That my eyes filled with woe!

Joy, thrill and song-

Died for his wrong.

My star, you can tell me-

What will happen to my sanity?

My poems are gone!

I burned them with fun!

… On my empty bed,

Where I have suffered,

I finally retire,

Knowing my poems are in fire.

Where before I lay-

On those lines of dismay!

Now I am in rage-

For burning that long page!!

In the sky, glittering like diamonds!

Ladies and dancers, handsome romancers,

How lost in enchantment am I!

… The rainbow of music, this symphony of colors,

Round the guests swirling, twirling, turning,

Performing his tricks, the saint of Harlequins,

At every girl’s behest, laughing, crooning, crying…

… Descants and minstrels, champagne and crystals,

As the hours pass them by, whirling,

Curled, braided tresses, a lam ode dresses,

Soaring as high like birds…

… How incredible it is, my very first real party!

Off the emeralds in the tree, the moonlight reflecting,

What magical enchanter has turned me into this?

A flirtatious little tease, a burning bright comet…

… For coats and bustles, hurry and hustle,

Oh, the morning draws too quickly nigh!

I remember it always, dark, silent hallways,

They disappear… and leaves behind,

And in a whisper, in a blink-

Only a sigh!! …

The birth happened, something I had not known.

I had little desires, so little, I was so alone!

But now I think of how I was afraid-

On those houses of horror and dread!

I know now those houses are destroyed for so long;

They took my desires of youth along!

I know now the walls were not for climb;

They stopped women to write their rhyme!

All the colors, lives, sighs, even tide,

Stopped me to be me, they took side!

The woman, my mom who gave me birth,

Told me how ACCIDENTALLY I came to earth!

Do flowers return to my space?

Would they find me in my youthful face?

Could I desire again in this place?

Why did my mother bring me ACCIDENTALLY to this place!! …

There is always a giant who has a role.

It is not loud or clear this APPARITION;

For us humans to have better days.

Inspiring us to know wilderness and brawl.

Taming our vision, our purpose and all!

th

… Suddenly blood races through your vein.

Quivering, your heart pounds like falling rain.

How can a heart withstand,

This horror by this treacherous hand?

… Into your heart, let calmness creep.

Tell your senses don’t be afraid or weep.

Let’s soothingly the stillness slowly unfold!

Be tranquil, silent, let’s not your soul be cold!

… When did you see the rough sea?

Where did storm rage, waves moved savagery?

When you submerge yourself in the water’s deep;

And a silent peace finds you when you weep!

… Conflicts bring so much echo to the heart.

Fear is big and tears you apart.

Reason is accepted by all, but senses accepted as fate!

You grab silence, and never are late!! …

LET’S BREAK THE DEATH”

goodbye

When the darkness covers the earth

People who live at night

Stay awake to see the light

To look at unreachable light at far

To be patient for nearing spring

And leaving of dreadful winter!

They take us to where we’ve never seen!

They tell us the secret of flowers and trees

They tell us how to be in love of running water in streams

They never are silent

Stars call on streams

They can hear the call of stars

They find a laughter, a tear, a kiss

They listen to the beauty of sounds

They inhale the fresh air

So they don’t break the peace

So they break the death!! …

Can we survive creator’s world of haze?

… Fated blessing, pondering our limited days.

When the gift come? I hear voices so innocent!

My glorious spirit, I will give you my eternity…

So tenderly, I bury evening, sorrowful sky with burgundy trees.

Come, we are out fate, a random thread of life!

… yet pure, true love can forever await.

When the silvery purple moon sheds its glistening cover,

The echo of our song in unknown world may still hover!

… If this journey shall not past my last breath,

I will endure an infinite inner death.

Look to my eyes when in pain, comfort my soul…

… Am I everything through you, let’s together stroll!

So listen! Silence hears our song till earth is in its mold;

And receive my immortal being that you hold!! …

14947506_1229585103751544_9183988304200330363_n

… Time, dawn…

Sun releases drips of morning dew.

It enhances all the wonders, only for few.

My mind’s eyes glances;

Then take a peek for thinking.

It blinks, knowing that it’s never been caught.

Searching for essence inspiring my thoughts to chime.

Rising again to see the wonder of dawn!

45656187

… Caresses in its gaze are by eyelashes ready to trap…

And hesitations in it never fail to turn time back.

Memories of forever make a sight to see;

A platitude of preeminence of probability!

I find what I looked for, the essence…

Whose presence is sublime!

I rise again to meet the dawn of time!! …

“MOSSY MISTY STAIRS”

12651101_10201422006507649_599300527127082603_n

… Air spirits gathered here,

Length of mossy misty stair.

To the top, reaching in pensive thought,

What a sight! I stop- in rapture caught!

… Almost catching the spirit there,

Almost seems to speak- on mossy misty stair!

Almost guides- softly by the hand,

In dreamy state, yes, I stand.

… Stair made of stone- joyous to climb.

Flight so graceful, invites the thy me.

Spirits live to commune there,

– Upon the height of misty stair!

… Air spirit seems gathering there.

– The length of mossy misty air!

To the top, reaching in pensive thought,

What a sight! I walk in rapture caught!! …

“HIS EYES ARE ON ME”

rain-puddle

… If I could be a raindrop, I would kiss each rose of morn,

And slowly trickle down its stem and rest upon a thorn!

If I could be a gust of wind, the kites I’d ride on high,

And hide among the clouds to chase them across sky.

… If I could be a rainbow, I would follow the passing storm,

And be a colored arch from sky signaling no norm!

If I could be a butterfly, far and free,

I would touch every flower and flutter close to THEE…

… If I could be autumn leaves, my color I would proudly show,

Until the chilling winds of winter lay me beneath the snow.

If I could be a snowflake on winter’s harsh breath, I’d ride,

And take my pure white blanket and hide at countryside.

… If I could be sparrow, the sign of spring that I be,

I’d know I’m always protected cause HIS eyes are always on me!! …

“LOST IN TORMENT”

most-beautiful-eyes-with-tears-wallpapers-12

Farewell to the tears in my eyes,

They shall fall no more!

Farewell to pain in my heart,

It will come to an abrupt end soon!

The pulsating tears in heart consume,

My eyes bleed with this oscillating!

Inevitably I am trapped in love.

In dream…

Soon, so soon, I fear the pain will be gone,

Lying there dying,

While your laughter engulf me!

On my knees, I plead,

For your caresses,

For you consoling my heart.

I close my eyes to hide;

But I see hatred dwell deep in my soul!

Your vision invades my sanctity,

I feel no more!!

I hear a pounding in my head,

Suffocating all around!

So soon I leap to my feet!

I overcome my torture;

Screaming your name!

I feel relief…

All the pains, suffering fade,

Fade to total silence and emptiness…

Until I am alone again.

I force myself to sleep;

Feeling pain abide in my chest!

I cry…

For I know forever I am alone!

Know I will cry only when I am alone!! …

“RAINDROP RUSH”

rain-puddle

… Raindrop rush

From sky pour to wash!

Like a sound of heartbreak

Like a shattered dream

And no hint of hope

They all slowly fading away…

… Raindrop rush

Sounds like a river

Flow over the hills

And the lush valleys

Only to reach the beginning…

18e9bef52131a91b04a850fe5d573cab

… Raindrop rush

Silent hush of a newborn child

Breathe with no worry

Even dreams

Of things to come…

… Raindrop rush

Disappear into a mist

Leave the imagination to wonder

Only to follow

Raindrop rush tied to a rainbow!! …

“WIPE YOUR TEARS”

sensual-woman-lips-1680x1050

A day in pain,

A day in rain,

A day of tears,

A day of fears!

All I have kept away!

None waiting for this day,

To come, except that special one gone away…

… Telling her you miss-

Of her gone away without a kiss.

To feel the joy that is true.

To hope she never forgets you.

Yes, the time of our last,

For the future endures the past…

… Not forgetting that you have come;

Leaving times and changes some!

You hold that special love in heart,

From the beginning of the end to start!

Wipe your tears!

It is not time for fears!

It is time to be glad-

For rejoicing, not to be sad.

Now, I miss you still;

Your heart knows that I will!! …

“DESCENDING SHADOWS”

blue2

The time that is night,

I fear the most, that fright!

Something forbidding is there,

In the descending shadows in air!

Compounds my trepidation so much-

Of other empty nights of such!

Must I preoccupy my mind-

Through the motion kind?

Passage of time is near-

Of that which appear…

I realize that although-

Emptiness envelops me though…

It’s really me-

Knowing my heart is free!! …

“REFORMED, REFINED”

fire-ring-capped

Oh, desolate shell!

Alas, I am free of you.

The molted skin of what I used to be-

Has plummeted toward unknown depths.

____ My soul is now

___ The volcano that was erupted;

___ And became my soul…

… Spewing crimson debris outward,

As it rages…

___ There is no blood or anger,

___ Only love and ambition…

… It explodes, I explode.

Now anything and everything I touch-

Is almost reformed or refined…

… And what is not reformed or refined-

Is beyond the spectacular borders-

Of my grief’s control,

And remains within-

Brilliant confines of-

Yours!! …

“THE SILENT SOUND”

beautiful-blue-flowers-pink-pinkx-favim-com-110272

I shall not build towers;
Skyward flowers to sun.
Lest, in climbing, I be blinded by the light,
And fall, stumbling and blind.
Scattered my broken dream,
On desert sand’s gleam, parch and die!

Instead when skies are gray,
on a day, late autumn,
I would plant soil, pat it to mud;
Slumber season of thud, soon in it!

And when they will have uttered:
“The snowdrifts seemed in its dread,
“That long, dead winter was the worst.”
The brave flower, there in wonder-
Yellowed snowdrops in white radiant lover,
At the site, silently awakening my heart-
To sounds of unseen vibrant earth’s might…

“IN YOU…”

15326329_1179195602136322_9181882411710773379_n

In you-
I see the deep ocean.
I see the brightness of sun.
At its highest point
I see the radiance of the stars.
In the darkest night,
I see behind the darkness of your eyes…

in you-
I see the freedom of your soul.
I see your longing for true love.
I see thee generous heart slowly opening;
And then closes in fear of that love.
I see behind the darkness of your eyes…

In you-
I see my heart entwined with yours.
My soul reaches the depth of yours.
I see my adoring glance reflect in your eyes;
And I wish you see yours in mine…

But what sadness…
For-
In me-
You don’t see the me in you.
And I, you in me!! …

“TEARDROP QUILT”

6524009433_3aab0d352a_z

If there were silver strings,
So delicate to use;
And thin sewing needles,
Tender, so not bruise,
I gather every tear that falls,
From a crushed and broken heart.
I sew together tears into a quilt;
With tender, delicate, strong thread.

So it wouldn’t come apart.
I sew each teardrop with silver strings;
Meanwhile add a little throb.
When you go to bed each night,
You could hear my sob;
And when you cover yourself at night,
You’d be wrapped in my pain.
You would be smothered by this fear-
Of the heart- felt lonely rain.
But after touching all my teardrops,
You’d roll over to find me there.
Adding to this endless quilt,
Another tear, just another tear!! …

You can’t go back

You can’t go back

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

"

After breaking a heart. Better not to look back. Can’t return back to the place of sweetness, after burning down the bridges with bad actions and words.

"

Can’t go back

Last time I saw you. You were covering your face and hiding tears. I knew when I exit the door. I couldn’t return.

I had everything once and wanted more. You told me. “Wild and crazy Johnnie. You must stop and hold on to me.  Even the wild sea knowed calm and must rest. Johnnie, the wars and regret are gone. Stay with me and allow our hearts to grow to everlasting and a good love.”

I left you on a Winter day to go fight wars for men who did not care if I lived or died. I learn life is like an old willow tree. The good branches will…

“NOT LIVE WITHOUT”

Valleys are deep, mountains are high, wind moans, and I am as unpredictable as sky's warth

64fe9dd2333d6f035c88ffb9f292358e1e53d5a7_860

It is on my desk

dry, almost petrified, the rose;

Something I didn’t want or expect

He gave it to me unexpectedly one day.

It pricked my finger.

Blood drops trickled.

A mirror of future twice more,

my blood fell.

Things I didn’t expect or want.

I told him, “no”!

Later I told him more.

I sat back and hoped he’d go.

Now we are alone!

I am always his rose;

and that’s all he’ll know.

Something I didn’t know or expect;

but now could not live without!! …

Tangled vines on the ivy grow,

Intricately vast,

Twined around,

As if afraid to let go…

When one breaks loose from,

Its tongued tangled home,

It sprouts forth a leaf growing,

In its own existence,

At last free to roam…

Let us learn by watching nature unfold,

For as in all living things,

We too, have our time to be.

Knurled and knotted,

We must go.

Only then can we find the-

Freedom to grow,

To be who we are;

Let out stories to be told!! …

19665218_1949405188617659_1726474857348078596_n

I start as a drop, flow as a trickle,

Develop into a stream and gushes a fall.

Dancing down as a Brook, growing like a lake.

I keep flowing and flowing, becoming as a river.

I sometimes flood, I sometimes dry,

Causing people who depend on me and my misery.

I sometines quench the throats of the thirsty;

Invigorating lands which produce plenty!

Men and women, old and young,

All creatures dirty and clean,

Bathe in my bosom-

To enjoy my ever nourishing milk.

I am called Amazon in Brazil.

I am called the long Nile of Egypt.

I become the Sacred Ganges of India;

Raved and worshiped by one and all.

I flow to join the ever big ocean,

Which is always my final Destination,

Which is always my resting place;

Where I have no limits,

No barriers,

No boundaries and no end!! …

Who are the ones who wrote poetry about everyone?

Do you know who everyone really is?

Did you know that a poet thinks of everyone?

Everyone includes you and me…

Have you ever met a poet in everyone?

Could you ever understand how they thought?

Did you ever cry, when reading their poetry?

Did you know what was real or not?

You know a poet can make you think just about everything.

From cats and rats and children and friends;

Of the sky that is red and yellow and burgundy;

To the lands of greens and browns and shores.

Now a poet knows love more than anyone.

With some their tears filled and ocean or sea.

But their hearts are true and pure like the diamond.

And forever is spoken with their words.
