Maybe

Maybe short poem

if I write
enough poems
maybe
I’ll get one
or two
right

it doesn’t
really matter
very much
to me

each one
I can read
which helps me
remember

is good enough

dependable
and sturdy
to do me
such a favor

and help me
smile
or wince
and multiply
my lives

and having
very much
a reason
to have been
written
and exist
in my trove

even so
I write for you
too

I can’t really
know
what works
or doesn’t work
for you

so I say

if I write
enough poems
maybe I’ll get
one or two
right

for you

Friend Maybe?

Friend Maybe? prose poem

As I ponder upon the color in my life a friend brought, I fall into a boulevard of meanings which is difficult to sort, Which compounds a lot of emotions together making a heavy stout, The satisfying talks that I

Maybe (mumbai, July 2016) short poem

Maybe, just maybe, love is not a forever thing you know? Maybe it is just an evening spent taking crowded trains to unknown stations figuring announcements in foreign languages and wandering walks through dilapidated bylanes full of squishy muck and

Just Maybe

Just Maybe short poem

Just maybe someday, I could walk the earth, happily with no more despair, with my luggage, roaming the unknown, meeting strangers at stopping points, then we’ll talk about stars and life, and the A.M doesn’t halt us. Just maybe someday,

Forty, Or Maybe Eighty, Winks

Forty, Or Maybe Eighty, Winks long poem

Speckled drifting ochre and sienna, sunshine yellow Shifting and blurring edges of scarlet, dozing again The sky blanched through the pink skin of my eyelid Tapping branch of a tree against the arbour Resonates, vibrates, excites the molecules of the
