A Pedestrian’s Walk

 

 

“The pedestrian walks

Slowly, and friskly towards his destination

Beads of perspiration trickling down the head…

 

Yet he walks,

Trudges under the beating Sun

Gazing vehicles with lustreless eyes

&

Watches the folks

Calming their frayed nerves in airy cars

 

He reaches with a chuckle,

A rhetorical one

To think of those who smirk at him…

 

A smirk to outdo their guilt laced conscience

While speeding their cars…”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Landscape Of Purple Dreams

 

 

“I often find myself on a land

A landscape of purple dreams

In trance of my subliminal commonality

Swooned on frailty of mortal being

 

I gaze beyond the improbables

That smile through beams of crescent moon

Or shaft of a bleak, dark sun

On ageless grounds of dreamer’s whim

 

Her swift and mild gaze

That falls as a drop of sweet adumbra

On withered flower of my pruned soul

Plucked from a nude branch of thoughts

 

Celestial songs she hums

As her lips tremble and quiver

On reciting soliloquy of labyrinthine lanes

The lanes that hold a choked memory;

 

A reminiscence of purple dreams

Glazed in amethystine mist are they;

In boxes of forgotten reveries

 

I sniff the gracious essence of her immortality

That often hides and lingers behind

In rugged fabrics of my inconsequential life.”
