indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

For whom i know not...5


Throes of desire
Throws me into ecstatic Helplessness

Tears of
A moment once lived
Flow on slopes of life

Come,
Clasp my hand
In yours while
Walking on
Slippery slopes

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
