    My friend, tis I, keep searching for that reason to write. It is sincerely something spiritual and altogether walled off from the world, but still it is always deriving, always analyzing, always inspiring the muse within you from with out.

    May I recommend the poet, RAINER MARIA RILKE he has influenced my poetry through his verse and his notations of reality, and I think you would enjoy his works as well.

(aaa) Sojourner

Walking through the lives we tread
Mostly unknown where the final destination
Amidst the complexities of an abyss materialism
Perflexed and chagrined by the question

What lies below the Hades where souls abound
Will they continue to rot forever and be helpless
Once arrogantly displayed invulnerability
Fearless, daring and unabashed careless fool

One day will succumbed for your arrogance
Then that is the time you'll have to say
You're a sojourner in a world of hypocrites
Where shameless world and rotten fools abound

Yes sojourner and vulnerable ...

(aaj) Not In My Dream

The world now beholds
is not my dream,
The chaos, the turmoil
and the plague is not in my dream

The promiscuousity, the non-respect
for the olds and the corruption
is not my in my dream
