Hamster Heart

Hamster heart 
caught in a wheel
life runs
out of breath

sometimes 
licking a wound
makes it worse
yet the primal instinct!

soul standing apart
in a Sufi whirl
thinking about
a warm cup of tea

hands holding
other hands
on a cobbled street
trampled memories.

Buddha & I

They came pouring
with labels 
accusatory looks
jibes
raised eyebrows
poison-tipped words
the Buddha 
in the beating lotus
awakens
smiles
holds me tight
repeats
-let it go.
I pity the anguish
I forgive their spite
The palm carrying a burning coal for me
must be burning inside
Shanti! 
Shanti!
Shanti!
I lean over 
to a smiling child
a cup of tea
and pray for the
fanged tribe.

Snippets

Pauses
brief, extended
they are answers.

************************

Silence
heavy like lead settles
sinks the heart.

************************

Words
change meanings
like snakes shed skins.

**************************

Monologues
echo in the soul
To be or not to be.

**************************

Dialogues
essence lost
in between the lines.

***************************

Texts
Two blue ticks
and the anxious wait.
