    The Wanderer ---

    From brine that comes and goes Across hot sand Into hills and plains and groves My shadow tells the time And ratchets around my toes The mist falls from the ground And plays where it arose Then heights shrink underfoot As my eyes dry by what blows I blink and turn And see the shiny skirt From...

    Carpe Diem

But I took a long break from my love for writing when I started delving myself in everything that was just supposed to keep me busy. But, it never...

    The Generation of the Millennials

    As I think about "the generation of the millennials", I ponder over the changes that they have gone through since the last, umm, Xennials. The period that defines the millennials is if they were born between 1981-1996/1997. Well, welcome then. I am not going to point out the flaws and the lacuna...

    Heaven, Earth, and World

    Heaven, Earth and World Thinking about my past, I remember a K-3 elementary school where I was cornered, during a break period, by an angry group of older kids. One centered me up against a wall, the others boxed me in; preventing me from escaping around them. Shouting proof, after proof...

    I know one thing, that I know nothing … (Socrates)

    From an Otherwise Comfortable Room

    [Shhh] I’m an island with a ghost in my head. I’m a rolling hill of grass. I’m a bird, an eagle or a sparrow. I’m a stag in the forest, a shadow in shadows. I’m a continent joining sunrise and sunset. I’m a saline sea whose waves are years. I’m a traveler and a homebody. I’m an artist...
