(28 October / Lucknow (U.P.) India)

font color='black'bI didn't start the fire..


Fire is like anger,
Anger is fire in my soul!
It grabs me with a word or a deed like the tiny spark
that creates a flame.
Anger like fire can consume me
if I don't control it.
Allowing it to smoulder with unspoken anger
erupting into fierce,
consuming flames
that could leave just a shell
and being behind!

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
