Beyond The Wish

Beyond The Wish short poem

I want to sit in the lap of nature,

And hear the murmurs of its bosom,

Unravel the secrets of the here after,

The idle hours, they depart and they come.

I want to lie in dark crevices,

Within the sprawling under growth,

And embrace all creations devices,

The towering hills and pollen afloat.

I wish to feel the caress of the gone,

When I reach my hand out like a child,

And feel the wonder of that child new born,

When I have touched and I have descried.

I wish to place my palms on the moist mud,

And feel the echo of life and death,

That reverberates in my heart beat and blood,

Oh the sagas entwined in each breath.

I wish to inhale the aroma of rain,

And let it enrich my reveries,

And let the subtle strings of human pain,

Weave a sad song of the sighing breeze.

I wish to spark the breath of many a birth,

And know I am a verse, a migrant breath,

Out to quench the inertia of pain and mirth,

And diffuse into the yawning depth.

I wish to close my eyes and wake beyond,

And know no more of the shrill world,

Freed from the umbilical of the mortal bond,

Like a poetry un- writ and unheard.

Always wide eyed with wonder, prone to reveries and restless with an inexplicable yearning to create ever since he was a little boy, Jay wrote his first poem when he was six. He discovered the ore of his creative endeavors in the writings of his sister from which everything else originated, in attics filled with vanilla smelling old books, in savoring the classics and in intricate poems of Wordsworth and William Blake inlaid with rhyme…. His poems have snuck under editorial radars and appeared in global anthologies, magazines, newspapers and online journals. He also runs an idea shop called the Centre of Gravity, draws cartoons, directs animated short films and conceptualizes communication campaigns. All of which originate from the same artery of poetic longing that destiny charmed into his soul.

Well Jay, your poetry is very much “writ and heard” and appreciated by us. As always it feels like a gossamer weave descending slowly and engulfing one’s being with a warm hue. Always a pleasure!

As I walked back to my house, i heard a stranger that passed me by mumbling numbly to himself about why a sidewalk will never unfold itself near the end of a routine and then become a fretwork of shadows.
