I want to speak one more Language
That everybody can easily speak
Same as our food or as beverage
If not, it means, we are weak

I wish I could deal with people
In everywhere, whatever they are
I hope I can once be able
To become a friend to those are aware

Serious or peaceful situations
Should not affect our hearts
The poverty or luxury nations
Are only our world' parts



Winter creeps,
As fall also crawls,
Grey's "Elegy" and memories!

How we poets can be,
Time can't really separate us.

Charlotte's sweet sister,
Is also my writer-friend.

And John Keats,
Along with Shelley,
Is with me spiritually.

While Wordsworth,
With his "Lucy Grey",
Loves to join our company.

Allan Poe,
Talks of "Annabel Lee",
As I sip my evening tea.

Khayyam too,
Makes himself revel,
With bread, wine and love quatrains.

Ghalib smiles,
As he too comes in,
This 'poetic gathering'...just for me!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is a poem composed as a poetic revelation as the slowly drifting fall-winter afternoon gave way to a sombre evening with me reading and reflecting on the lives and poems of the poets mentioned above. Ghalib is Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib -- the most acclaimed Urdu poet till today. He lived from 1797 to 1869 in Delhi, India.
Readers will have to use their imagination in a poetically spiritual way (Easy for most poets and poetesses) if they want to enjoy the poem.

~Apollo And Daphne~
(Eight By Four)

Apollo's first love
a beautiful
maiden that when
Apollo saw her
in the woods fell
in love with-but
Daphne fled from
him just frightened

Apollo was in
such hot pursuit
that when she felt
his breath she screamed
at her father
the god Peneus
who just changed her
into a tree.

JUST WONDERING(Rhyming Couplets)


~Just Wondering~
(Rhyming Couplets)

You left me a long time ago in such an intolerable suspense
And to me nothing made any sense
Trying to find the broken pieces of my heart again
Only took its toll, and this augmented more my pain.

Everyday I wonder why some many bad things have to happen
Going through so much sorrow just deepen
So many of my emotions and opened more my wounds
Healing comes gradually sometimes just by writing with my pen.

You went somewhere, you just left me and I have to let you go too,
Why did you leave me like this, after all that we’ve gone through?
You tossed away everything that we have had for so very long,
I hope that you know by now that what you did was cruel and wrong.

Sitting here today I can’t help but to wonder most of the time about you
Recalling all the wonderful times we had, when your love was true, to me.

~All In His Unconditional Love~
(Double Cinquain)

In life
I've encountered
For sure problems
But Jesus my Lord is always
With me

He gives
Me conforting
Thoughts and peace within soul
When in plenty of heartaches I
Go through.

~Your Love~

Your love can thrill me
give me lots of delight
your kisses are like honey

For you I am living for
and for eternity I'm yours.

TOMORROW (Quatern)



Yesterday just came and left again
And now it seems just like a dream
It'll be memory in my brain
That may bring sunshines happy gleam.

I just try to enjoy'd what I've got
Yesterday just came and left again
Think I can make it on the dot
I know the effort isn't in vain.

If I can only follow Gods plan
And don't get stuck in the past
Yesterday just came and left again
With all its ups and downs fast.

Everything has its bad good days
Now left holding more memories
But 'morrow sunshine just hopes raises
Yesterday just came and left again.

BROKEN DREAMS (Alliteration/Rhyming Couplets)


~Broken Dreams~
(Alliteration/Rhyming Couplets)

Sharp light falls angrily,
baleful summer entombs bleakly,
As concrete vessel sighs completely,
and vibrant life crashes hypocritically

Uniform dreams craves caressingly,
tribal battle-axe stoops suggestively,
As vestigal coma crashes dazzlingly,
and a broken light languishes sleeplessly

Broken dreams shrieks caressingly,
gray coma nags uncomfortably;
As deliberate creationism dies expectantly,
and soundless enticement capitulates finally

As a drunken light sheds thinly
and broken dreams sighs sullenly!
