Scattered Verses

 I am an unknown sculptor

I am in love with the clay

of your unfinished pristine statuette.  


I am alone and sad

Feather of love came to rescue me

Suddenly a smile visited me.


Dreamy wings took me high

Sun and moon went for a ride

Pearls of tears rained down.


The sweet leisurely flying hours

Sketching rainbow colours on the azure sky

and dancing in undisturbed delight.


Dreams are riding on illusions

Mundane life stretch to embrace

Desires are falling leaves of autumn season.


Tears reflecting hues of pain

The resonating smile light of soul

A beautiful contradiction conceals all.
