Lockdown Blues

It used to be called the summer blues

Now though, it’s those lockdown blues

Caught up in these four walls

Memories captivated in just a few scrolls!


Love, passion, pain and boredom

Mingled emotions running high in random

Discoveries made with every secret revealed

Eyes opened, outside all being closed!


You were my lockdown love

Passing our time with every line

Chats on free, images to a pixelated fine

Churning thoughts to a crescendo, all mine!


Oh! Bring back those days and those bright nights

To turn on these dulled out,

“back to normal” lights!

Truth, it be told!

Learned was that race, the blessed

Consciousness teaching on a miniscule

Awaiting sunrise and sunset to prove!

Then they came, they saw and conquered

Kings of emptiness, thinking they be matured.

Far from it, further from the skies above

Digging deeper into their materialistic encode.

Truth, it will now emerge

Engrained in every sand of earth

Blossoms of hope round the corner

Wait for it, it will divinely devour!

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!
