A Lost Song

A Lost Song short poem

Reprise from the past,
Bringing back missing notes,
In my heart laden,
Of quote and misquotes.

Some are evident of me,
Others remind me of a child,
A mother’s favorite melody,
On go.. or in a mood mild.

A song that defines the soil,
I breathe it in fresh,
A flower like fragrant air,
Entrapping me in mirthful mesh.

A ballad of two pure souls,
Celestial glowing night.
A humming heart admires,
Adolescence’s delight!

A new world unbolts again,
Full of techno drive,
My seldom refreshed memo,
Grows fainter to survive!

A song is complete only,
When it’s sung from heart,
A memory comes full circle,
Times of yore, I’m back to start!

So I hum a little past,
Merry and cheery once more,
Of an era that had me there,
Lost child in me, I thus restore!

Like An Old Song

Like An Old Song short poem

Walking in mental fog, you become a swaying tree. In mistiness one becomes lonely like a blackbird. Hollyhocks would wait, till the sun comes out. December rain brings the gift― of sleet on lips. ————————————– Walking in mental fog, you

Lost In The Wilderness

Lost In The Wilderness prose poem

Eerie the right and weird the atmosphere, Lightning flashes fearful faces, Giant trees cast sinister shadows, Danger lurks in the oddest of places, I stumbled on a stone and hit my head down, I suddenly realized that I had strayed
