my pen

My pen has no eyes
Yet it beholds
My pen has no legs
Yet it moves on
My pen is heartless
Yet it feels
My pen cannot read
Yet it writes
My pen is colourless
Yet it writes a rainbow
My pen is not a painter
Yet it draws a beauty
My pen is dumb
Yet it sings
My pen is deaf
Yet it listens
My pen is brainless
Yet it thinks
My pen is not a warrior
Yet it fights
My pen is a loser
Yet it wins
My pen is nothing
Yet it is everything

The Thorns

Another scribble in a gap of few minutes during the evening duty in the OP unit yesterday.
It all started from the word “Abscond”, which just happened to pass my mind. And the first three lines came along with it. But to be honest, I didn’t know what “abscond” meant in dictionary when I wrote the first stanza. I checked later of course. And decided to keep it. And write on.

The ridiculing howls
Of midnight winds
Abscond my dreams ~
They were once
Soothing melodies ~
And the silence is not
Quite lovely…

***

Why I would
Keep dreaming
Is sometimes
Beyond me;
I try to find
Lest I’ll never
Find myself…

***

I glide the pen
Across acres of fields
Of rose beds
And sunflowers;
And yet only
The thorns of roses
Bother to graze…
