From my window seat


Of all the countless stars I see
And the dim lights across the field
And the stations carelessly passed
I finally breathe.

When you’re rushing, rushing
against time
And then you look up at the sky
Of all the countless stars you see
One shines bright.

Across the moors there is a frail
road; a lone bike stands by
Staring at the passing train
The calves graze on
Unperturbed, .

A dim lantern keeps its stand
Protector of the muddy homes
Kingdom under thatched roofs –
Of all the darkness that I see
I see you, if I close my eyes.

Sleepless night of sleepy eyes
Herb and water sits by my side.
The train halts as dawn
Creeps in.
I order two butter omelette fries.


Sleepless Nights

What do you do on sleepless nights
with star dipped empty eyes?
Sit ashore crushing shells
One down.
Two too.
Three tripping trance.

The cat mews, stumbles, stares bewildered
The orange moon up the pile
Up; up shadows so high
Swaying east,
Sway west-
Still; the rest erect dangling dead.

The silence of silence
‘as noise within
I knocked thrice,
Skipping a beat.
Answered with gallows of wind
Rancid breath tumbled down-
Breadcrumbs on ashen tresses;
The lone flag whistled back.

As I bare the crests within
Pink darkness smothered its grief
These sleepless nights – mere reluctance
These sleepless nights of emptiness.

You won’t have an Answer

You can ask
Loneliness is?
You won’t have an
It’s not until you
are down there
craving for a
where there are
that you sit and wait
and wait
stopping time
you wait on.

I write in dark spaces
On empty faces of
I play
I caress
I cajole my
existence into…

You can ask
Loneliness is?
You won’t have an
I did
I didn’t none.

Loneliness is the Sun
beneath my vein.
Loneliness is in the dust
On that bookshelf.
Loneliness is in the deep
deafening dull ocean.
Loneliness is in my fist
Bound tight.

But if you ask
Loneliness is?
You won’t have an Answer.
