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!

From her book – Dreams and Dew

Get Dreams and Dew

Sheltered Aura

Fight with your heart and mind

Worth it… don’t think it’s kind

Ask me then my opinion

As crazy as it seem to share to millions!

Bring out your love and deeds

Surface of reflection be your heart

Start another race, right on the mark!

Each being create this sheltered aura

Lighten up those positive fires!



A poem by Chriselda Barretto

From her book – “Must Love Poetry

Afflicted

He stood across her, staring in unrefined neglect

Past deeds surfacing, their needs not yet met

“If only”, he thought, let me proceed in unbridled direct

But she was gone, in another’s arm of creed and passion bereft!


Tis what they call another fundamental historic peck?

No signs of remorse, something he so longed to see

Blinded was she, hanging on to her partner’s sleeve

Not even a glance shed in his direction

This marking the beginning of his self-created affliction!

Eat, pray, weep…?


Shelter from heat
Is that all we seek?


Wishing on a passing cloud
Is that all that holds benefitting clout?


Sing in my praise, before they sleep
Eat, pray, weep…is that the order of the sheep?


Come on by with a wistful must
Shatter those chains of an aged past
Unwilling though…you still find trust!


For look ahead, far deep into the light
A challenging sword, in all its might
Clearing boundaries…all around, left and then right
Herein lies my evergreen, vengeful delight!

Moss

Apologies I offer thee in advance
Shedding any hindrance, maintaining my superfluous balance!


For now I shall commence my irrevocable dance
Cursed being, you lost your golden chance!


Shame not in sight, this is my win
Dirt is meant for you, a horrible cringe!


Sorrowful and doomed your existence
No more need for even a simple sentence!


Go about your way, our paths never again to cross
The ultimate fulfilment is to leave behind you, an undeserving rotting moss!

Stroke…

Dreaming silently, watching aimlessly
Trying to figure you out
Feeling your thoughts work away
Splashes of paint all over you
See it now, that visionary pout!


Move on with your precise strokes
Building momentum with each strike
Vibrating colours on different textures
Fingers mixing in that light!


Can this be my unfaithful hoax?
Healing it is just to watch
You be my one and only match!

The Suffragettes….(Happy Mother’s Day)

She cried out of her senses

Sheer despair, beaming at its hinges


Shedding her thoughts and beliefs


Resting in her mind’s deepest crevices!


With every drop, inching out attached negativity


Spreading thin, creeping riddled sensitivities


Cleansing out the coloured palettes


Years of depressed feministic rights and fates


Blooming on with the beautiful suffragettes!
