Mixed Nuggets


Numbers are cascading
Flowing in endless stream
Flooding the columns
Gushing in the rows of my dreams


They whined and whined
But grabbed the dough then dined
More whines…more whines
Grab more dough for wine


Be not like anybody
Be the best that you can be
Hold the reins of destiny
Create a niche fit for thee


Poem’s a furnace
Where thoughts are forged
Verses are webs
Where dreams are caught


Offer  not your dreams
To the beast called doubt
Fly high flap your wings
Soar high touch the clouds


Grapes of triumph taste sweet
If through hard work were reaped
Victory earned by deceit
A bitter fruit of greed


Hold your own barometer
When appraising your success
Set your own parameters
When defining happiness


If heights of fears you have scaled
If against all odds you did prevail
If bout with doubts you have mastered
What else is there you won’t conquer


In an ocean of white
We see black so tiny
Bad things we recognize
But the good we can’t see


Like the leaves in autumn –
Some hope and dreams wither.
Soon they’ll hit the bottom,
Then blown hither… thither.
The wind decides their faith,
The wind assigns their grave.


The SOUNDS are needles no more
They cease to pierce my soul
The SYMBOLS are no longer rocks falling
But flowers ready to bloom in my next spring


Songs the wind breathes to my ears
Strum both anguish and cheers
The notes and rhyme I hear
Echo laughters and tears


Surfed atop the waves of white
Far below are dots of light
From the roof hung a lamp so bright
Granted our bird a blissful flight
