Word-lit dreams
Waxed colourful
Waning to a blank decline
Recuperate, wax again
Psychedelically perfuming
Metaphor, simile, metre
Rhetorically cut, collect syncopating
Yet blank decline once again
Unthematic, dissatisfactory
Seeking materials waxing the thickest
Nature, man-heterodox, orthodox
Stories, history
Domestic complexity, social perplexity
Repeating, repeating
Dreams-word-lit true

    Writing to me is like drying the tears I constantly dropp either
    from love or pain for a lost-love...
    to me drowning in a valley of tears
    Is my life manifesting itself at this time...
    Great piece of work, , , , Romeo (Report) Reply

    writing is the only way we can express.......that not only depicts inner thoughts but bringout bravery, passion and love to others in a clear picture.....a beautiful vision is nice....the last lines clearly speaks..... (Report) Reply

    ' Word-lit dreams '

    What in case, the dreams are DISSOLVED!
    With the vibrations of the WORD-
    Like in the Beeja - Mantra........
    Is lit with the LIGHT WITHIN..........
    And everything else comes to STILNESS..............!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
