Sleepy Head

Lying down in bed
across my open window.


The light of the moon beside
hazy and dark outside.

Wavy figures moving to and fro
Sinewy, long, always on the go!

Rustle of the leaves I hear
sway them the branches near
from the gentle wind that gushes.
An occasional bark or meow
distantly far, but my ear it reaches.

There it is again
hiding in the shadows
dancing in between light and harrow.

A figment of my imagination…
care not, for slumber I follow
my head gently hits the pillow!

Get Dreams and Dew

Pill

Awaken me like you do
every morning be it rain, shine or hue.


Build in me your thoughts so free
cause it helps me foresee
this enhancing feel of love and cheer
heartfelt, warm, full of all that is dear.


Allow me the will
to clear for you a place..quiet and still
to feed me with your love-spliced pill!

Mistral Winds

Shelter I seek
from these mistral winds
touching my skin
as ice on fire
melting innately all my ire!

Opening my pores
as the petals of a rose
blooming in abundance
under these rays
of the morning sun affray!

Carry me with you
onto the sea
glistening shades
of the truest blue.

Birds flying high
their spirits roaming
gravity free
making me feel full
of happiness & glee!
