Saturn: The Litany of Mercy

i. The season of winter as it creeps up the palm of your hand, the season of birds as they fly into the moonlight, the glowing silver beneath your feet as the ice tendrils around your grassroot veins. You reach out to the stars and the ground pulls you into Continue Reading

Landing on Jupiter

 

Floating on a cloud of hydrogen and helium; so featherlight,
I’d gaze at the twilight sky turn into night.
Europa, Ganymede, Io, Titan, Sinope…
79 moons of Jupiter adorning the mystifying backdrop. 

778.5 million kilometres away from the Sun

Our distance being worlds apart
I said, “The enigma has long worn Continue Reading

His fingers strum my rustic strings
My core verberates into an ethereal melodic ring.
These soothing pastoral notes make me wonder
‘Bout my lady, swimming off into the money trail yonder.

 

I hear the soulful yearning in my melancholic A-minor,
It’s inviting her to the charming west, pervaded by Continue Reading

Words For My Knife

Let me take you through the lanes of a hype,

On topics heart wrenching and worse,
Intolerance to add some spice to the burns,
Burning a hole in several souls as they build a home of their own.

It begins with some striking … Continue Reading
