    In the Mist

    mist fills the night— there are no ghosts, just my self and me in mellow light I pause only to listen to rustling in the trees, where secrets like my own might be guarded mystery it’s not for me to know what those might be, it is a comfort just to feel a kindred familiarity (c) Neetu Malik

    Regardless of what, it will surely be.

    The days have gone, the days have come, Renewed what was and will continue to be, Through stormy skies, and the breaking of sunrise, Only then, will the eyes then see. Despite the lingering days of shadow, Our hearts then yearn to be free, Through winter days where the heart relays, Of how much...

    Cockney Speak

    Cockney speak is rhyming slang and what we use when in the gang. So listen well my foreign friends, don’t think too much and just pretend this nonsense you don’t understand, is not planned - just rhyming slang. I’ll start my lesson so listen well and as for meaning - try not to dwell as to why...

    Stillness despite the rainfall.

    Through thick and thin, through every sin, Through every storm before the win, While shadows lurk and doubt would creep, While hearts would mourn and eyes would weep, Before the storm, remaining calm, With hand in hand, without a qualm, A steadfast stillness despite the clash, Where...

    The miner carves out a niche:

    Each scrape of the shovel every dug out notch or carved tunnel feeds the ache that is carried in hands permanently blackened and a heart lost in the timelessness of day to day searches and demands never able to be met. Like the puppet that walked, it amazes everyone he rises each day...

    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...

    Free Poetry

    Are there any hard-and-fast rules about writing free poetry. I am in the learning curve. Thank you!

    All energy speaks from the same tongue Individual thought shapes individual reality. Hostility stems from the ego. Questions of who is right. Neglecting that the answer may be Anyone. Chanting recognizes Praying recognizes Mediating. All emanation of related vibrations. Full hearted belief...

    Security Blanket

    Wishful Teachings

    I long to learn the dance of the dandelion; To grow outwards as the sun hits me so To grant wishes through breaths and once blown away to grow through new opportunities wherever my pieces may land.
