SHAPING CREATION

Shaping Creation

Shaping Creation

Knitting in the round,

intricate shapes

embellish

nature’s doilies.

 

Nurturing hands,

aged

like air-washed glass

fondle

timeless determination.

 

Stitching day to night,

darkened figures

nod seamlessly

shivering

interchangeable designs.

 

Spirited exhaustion

springs awake-

a new day’s

colour.

THE LOST SONG

The Lost Song

The language of unsaying

captivates the soul—

secret codes and phrases

bound in nature’s scroll.

 

Convoluted messages

elude the human mind.

Beginningless—it ends,

lost to all mankind.

REVERIE

Reverie

Windows dipped in abstract quills—

vignette views of coastal hills.

 

A pantomime beneath a chuddar,

fan-shaped hands— a blurry flutter.

 

Heavy thoughts on pillows suede,

reflect in eyes of precious jade.

 

Questions heard but seldom spoke,

afraid of feelings they evoke.

 

Are we not, but children free—

gifts of love from just one tree?
