    There's a
    transparent ocean
    inside your eyes
    opalescent
    like rivers
    on windshields
    brush strokes
    of autumn rain
    and sapphires
    in the gulfs
    of its tide
    turbulently serene
    untied azures
    breathlessly deep
    burning hearth
    in a twilight
    growing colder
    like Fur Elise,
    submerged
    into a verse
    painted sheets
    in caffeine
    and a stereo
    singing blues
    whilst you danced
    timid and sheen
    swirling glitters
    on sleeves
    frozen diamonds
    of grief
    and butterflies
    on your lavalier
    lilies and
    bluish kisses
    on my shore
    and off you go
    unseen like wind
    out of reach
    merrily fading
    and that's enough,
    enough to me
    to breathe.

    Off you go with the wind,
    and I'll see you off, till you fade.

    I remembered you
    last night, sunken
    in tea leaves,
    melted
    and reminisced
    in the fragrance
    of a town at dusk
    yellow apartments
    twinkle along
    the sleepy hills
    of a street
    gasping
    from a long day
    fallen to murmurs
    undulating distance
    of shady myrtles
    and a snoring child
    on the balcony cot
    cloaked in kisses
    of an exhaling sea
    scent of primroses
    kneading my heart
    far across the bay
    of eclipsed moths
    dancing in light
    on hushed aisles
    an ambling kitten
    twitching the tail
    to a shivering bush
    meandering
    through the mist
    someone singing
    an old song,
    laughing halfway
    fading in the air
    a swing swaying
    slowly in the wind
    rolling drapes and
    falling snow
    moonlight tucking
    silent rooftops
    around our stories
    and then
    you came,
    like those fireflies
    flames of memories
    over my lashes
    and I can't remember
    your name
    in a passing sight
    though I knew you,
    and your scent
    still, a lilting laughter
    shall lit my path
    till I find you
    in the darkling woods
    and I'll wake again
    aching
    like a poet.

    It's been a long time since I went to the beach, to inhale the wilderness of the sea, and the affection of a mother.
    the saltiness of its breeze brushes past my forehead every night. I hear it's ceaseless rustle throughout the sleep, it's calling me.
    The mossy pavements and the lurching hornbeams waved at me as I descended the steps to it's haven.
    Thickened cattails danced in solitude,
    to a cantabile of the distant plovers, and splintered hues of the dawning winked over the grooves of aged boulders.
    Maroon clay tiles of the brick houses hosted flocks of pelicans to receive a gentle sun,
    for years of saline kisses fainted it's limewashed walls.
    An apron was in slumber on a clothesline stretched along the bay laurels, as the vessels quavered in the dock of the breathing sea.
    An old shadow was sailing in memories as his hook was diving to find a sustenance.
    Someone held the palms closer for another long sigh, watching the boats in the boundless azures, as the clouds reminded the polka dots in her favourite sundress.
    Just like the anchors that moor the trawlers to the pier, I held her thoughts in a heart that became fragile in the flaking rust. As the fibre strings of an abandoned net, they're entwined in the depth of the sea within.
    A fisherman passed with a heavy mackerel, grinning like a victor. Everyone has a sea to brave on each fleeting day.
    The sea kept coming back with another tide, taking back all the debris, I felt lighter and lighter in the fading debris of pain
    on my shore along with the waves.
    As I sat on a stone bench stained with mold, casts of crabs rushed along the sand to find it's home.
    I asked the sea, I'm nobody! who are you?
    With another milky kiss to my temples,
    it whispered; I'm life! sail in it.

    Spindrift

    O darling, sail in the sea of life
    when you find the sunset,
    stay anchored in love.

    Do you taste cardamoms in the river
    flown along the minnows in depth
    merged in shards of luminous silvers
    sieves of mornings in pouring light
    cast above the pastures of almonds
    kissing our feet as we sleep on hills
    to raining sparrows, wakes our shell
    heaved again to the cave of dwams
    crowded streets and blinking lanterns
    all the laughter in an eve of summer
    late night chatters on moonlit terraces
    flaxen windows of assorted dwellings
    sunburnt hues in the brows of peasants
    swinging children in an oaken grove
    like transient raptures, they'll evanesce
    paving path to the coldest crystals
    of falling frost, in the milky distance
    in that shivering blanket, mantle the joys
    leaving merrier verses to gloomy days.

    Am I lost somewhere?

    Did I forget something
    Some childhood dreams
    and some bird screams
    Some summer games
    In the sunny flames
    Some heart bond shadows
    In the stream water shallows
    Some grandma stories
    the half slept glories

    Some kings and queens
    and some garden beans
    Some open skies of stellar spread
    calmest flow of moonlight thread
    Some bunch of bees humming high
    and the happy birds on farthest sky
    Scary palms over the sloppy hill
    evil spells that make you still
    Some crying storms over rainy night
    sobbing clouds and thunder fright
    Some wildest fruits on the mossy shrub
    purple mouths that make you rub

    Did I lose something
    Something lost its life on my tale
    pocket machines sing me songs
    Sweeter is where lullabies belong
    Searching memories lost on the trail
    Lost is more of an innocent face
    and a soft heart in case.

    Childhood

    We were butterflies
    in an endless summer,
    is it the winter that killed us?

    And you appeared in chiseled shadows
    far away in the wild, an afterglow
    to my heart that slipped into a fathomless
    abyss of the fleeting moments
    I stood there, till the sycamores
    wavered in the breath of a setting sun
    and canaries filled the dusky heaven
    in echoed chimes of the dying light
    something was strange today,
    the cold breeze brushing past my face
    had numbed my senses, and the scent
    of a distant lover unsettled my inner storm,
    the floor beneath my feet seemed
    to be washed away in an ocean.
    I wasn't scared to leave her, oblivion
    haunted me the most. To forget
    her in the tempest, to die as a stranger.
    I'm old as a hill, for time laughs at me
    like a mischievous kid
    hiding my prayers in its pocket
    as I seek her in the dust.
    To each fading moments,
    I corrode, collapsed into shards
    of a crystal carafe, and somewhere
    in the voids, her memories starts to faint.
    her name, the hessonite in her sight,
    daffodils in the swaying curls,
    they all become dust in the dunes
    of an infinite vacuum.
    Though in that blank emptiness,
    I hear her singing, an unknown rhythm
    to my feeble hearing.
    When I meet her across the sea as a stranger, she'll know me with that song,
    and I'll keep singing it over and over again
    not to forget the rhythm being lost in the
    howling winds.

    Blurred

    There's an abandoned orphan
    in the vastness of my tired arteries,
    exuding cold shivers down
    my shaky spine on starless nights.

    Dead Children

    O yarrows, did you see my child?
    the fragile kid who lost the way home
    when you meet him, give him a kiss
    wipe his tears, and tell him
    his mother awaits him at home.

    Would you fall like rain on my siesta
    tracing sunbeams on window sills
    silken splatter of lukewarm pearls
    on sheeny sleeves of sleeping towns
    tinkling marbles on midsummer straw
    displeased purr of a stargazed chartreux
    scudding mist of afternoons on rooftops
    last drop of cranberries in a sherbet
    stains of fading russets on maple fields
    buttermilk and bee stings on my lips
    sound of a sea rustled along the trees
    fading wails of violas circling cypresses
    flowy muscatel in a rustic hourglass
    smeared honey on a bruised heart
    hallucinations! I adore your ruthless myth
    for I'm free in your summer, like a finch
    to cross the divide of fainted miseries
    and harpoons of fate to hunt my wings
    In those tangled reveries, we aren't apart
    In stories, you and I are withered daisies
    though in my ballads, I'm that romeo
    who still lives with his Juliet.

    I wished as I wandered,
    while billows of antiseptic
    numbness rushed into
    my sedated nostrils
    past the low gleams
    of fluorescent hallways
    mute murmurs of destiny
    another drop of dextrose
    have merged into my veins
    melted into an infinity
    like the hazelnuts in her eyes
    disappeared into the
    wilderness of my ventricles
    I wished if we met,
    all over again in a twinkle
    as two tawny strangers
    below the weeping willows
    amidst the scattered silvers
    of a leeward setting twilight
    thence, we would still laugh
    at our sundae whiskers
    and your twirling tresses,
    amorphous in a williwaw
    and we'll saunter the hills
    of shivering bluebells
    to find our sunset dimming
    over a dusty graveyard
    thence, I would tell you nothing
    yet tears would roll quietly
    on your sight in a silence
    leaving you there,
    in the haze of a last breath
    and, I'll become a stranger
    fallen into betrayals again
    I would leave just a prayer
    to farthest bluish heavens
    'where are thou my lord,
    have you forgotten me?'
    and a wind shall touch me,
    roses will shower their
    fragrances on me.
