gold

A poem written as 3 continuous Haikus..

There she stood gleaming,

like El Dorado, in her

graceful golden garb

Pandemonium

as she twirls and turn around

I’ll be resolute.

Rowdily I risk

it all and play this raucous

roulette of romance…

Limbo II

Inspired by Dante Alhigieri’s masterpiece, the Divine Comedy, Limbo is a series of Haikus that tour the dark expanses of hell.

Limbo II is poem consisting of 5 continuous Haikus.. Keep your eyes peeled for Limbo III

kneel before Hades
as chaotic clouds veil the
blood scarlet skies

 

hear the cackle of
demons and feel the whip sting
bloody tender flesh

 

inhale the odour
of wine blood trickling onto
the blanket of bones

descend deeper down                                       the dark chasms resounding                               the screams of damned souls

 

welcome to torment
the hellish paradise where
you’ll rot forever

Limbo I

Inspired by Dante Alhigieri’s masterpiece, the Divine Comedy, Limbo is a series of Haikus that tour the dark expanses of hell.

Limbo I is poem consisting of 5 continuous Haikus.. Look out for Limbo II

PS- I’m planning to make this a series so stay tuned

 

Choke on clammy air

And feel the wooden walls of

your casket confine

 

descend the stone steps

into the desolate depths

of the neon nether

 

Be engulfed by the

void of the hell’s gaping mouth

A dance with darkness

 

Plunge into fires

of torment and splash around

with Satan’s children

 

In the thick bloody

waters of the swamp like Styx

Ablutions for him

 

When you feel lonely

Take a peek under the bed.

Don’t keep him waiting

Andromeda

A poem written as 3 continuous Haikus..

​That moonless night was

a monotonous canvas

Craving starry shine

passionate poets paint

whimsically worded verse

onto the veiled moon

Illuminating

The noiseless night with starry

Specks of Andromeda

songbird

A poem written as 4 continuous Haikus..

clipped winged captive sings
Immaculate inferno
of warm melodies.

 

symphonies swell like
ripened fruit and vocals rise
and crash, rhythmic waves

 

sending salty sprays
of harmonious lyrics
seaside soprano

 

echoes of peaceful
pandemonium pan the
sonorous skyline.

Mangled Mirror

A poem written as 3 continuous Haikus..

Wade ‘gainst wrathful waves

manifesting the moon like

a murky mirror

 

From purple plumed clouds

the turbulent thunderbolts

lash like a toad’s tongue

 

Eerie echoes of

effervescent emotions

Through a looking glass

Bald Eagle

A poem written as two continuous Haikus..

clenched elfin fingers 

Submerged under crimson pools

And ravaged rubble  

 

blitz the blameless as

diplomats defend discreet

drones: democracy

5^7^5 Haiku

A piece on the American Drone strikes that continue to massacre innocents and how they have kept defending their bike actions

After Valentine’s

A poem written as 3 haikus..

Flowers once cherished

wilt away and chocolates

soft and sticky sweet

 

Beloveds barter

beautiful cards only to

dump them disregard.

 

Bowtied presents are mere

momentos of when pain felt

Peculiarly pleasant
