I

Fly swans
and the lake waters
mirroring angular flights
freeze
the  tremulous moments

II

Beach sand-worms
burrow patterns
onto the fossilized footprints
time’s scripts
are redrawn

III

Clocks ‘for sale’
on the roadside stalls
time trapped in dials
peeping inside
I move the needle of hushed memories

IV

Whirling Alastonia leave
collides mid-air
with the pigeon feather
rustle in the silent grove
lovelorn songs

V

An old man strolls today
in temple ruins
or was it yesterday?
for him
time flows in a Minotaur maze
   
VI

I pinch lover’s body
to draw out
a few drops of comfort    
I inhale some and fall asleep
Ends lovemaking

VII

Himalayan winds
rustling through the birch trees
echo
icy heartbreaks
and spent passions

VIII

As leaves depart
the frangipani tree
autumn sun
cheers
the lonesome flowers

  1. Lovely painting. Nature is hard to capture in words.
