The Garland of Diamonds

The Garland of Diamonds

stars wore a garland of diamonds

holding the beads they danced in the sky

were they happy or they were crying

I couldn’t decide as they shed snow flakes

a union of sparkle and of those white tears

images were formed as my eyes could witness

one after the other they changed in the sky

a mother singing a lullaby to her new born

sisters playing and laughing together

a son burying the coffin of his father

two lovers looking into each other’s eyes

such a sight I may never see again

all emotions being played one after the other

all that I could strongly feel in that moment

I lived a full life that night

just by looking into the sky

to the Land of Fantasy

to the Land of Fantasy

I wish the moon to jump its way

I wish the sun to cool down for a while

I wish the stars to come a little closer

I wish to see a little magic in the sky

I wish the rainbow to change its colors

I wish the clouds to form a palace

I wish the rain to bathe us of divinity

I wish the ocean to shine too bright

I wish the birds to learn to swim

I wish the trees to walk a bit

I wish the mountains to bow for once

I wish the fish to learn to fly

all of this and much much more

a list of my wishes somehow eternal

to make them come true for even once

guess I need to travel to the world another

the world another, a world impossible

travel my way the Fantasy land

mySestina Wonderland

mySestina Wonderland

my little salt, little pepper like heart

beating for broccoli and spring onions

peri peri sauce for a tinge of excitement

i need some wine

i need a vacation

o dear chicken of imagination

bring me a plane to my destination

serve me a beach of salads of all kinds

some bread and donuts by the side

i want my knives and forks all clean

cover me with a napkin of peace

lying down all day the sunny side way

to not let Mr. Time to pass too fast

I am holding a clock in my hand

for I want to stay a little longer here

in mySestina wonderland

to make her mine

to make her mine

if only they had discovered a magical sphere

with a little space to fit me in

I would fasten all my seat belts carefully

for a journey to be traveled to pure my soul

to beat the light for its unbeatable speed

Yes, I would travel Back in Time

I would amend all the wrongs I have done

I would un- break the heart that I broke once

I would stop those ugly words in my throat

words that separated her from me

I would kiss her, caress her and just not stop

I am worthy of her blame

I didn’t do it when I had the chance

I would tell her, I love her a zillion times

I didn’t say it when she craved for those words

I would do everything to undo the hurt

wouldn’t let her cry those precious tears

would hold her tight, not let her go

would soothe her anxiety, soothe her soul

only if they had discovered a magical sphere

that could make me travel, back in time

I would rush to her, wouldn’t make any delay

to bring her back, to make her mine

a New Me – Born

a New Me – Born

that day, the child in me

told me to fly

so i jumped, jumped higher

to touch the sky

each time, I used a little more of my strength

wondering, how much more can I use

hoping, to go a little higher with each try

 

the cotton like clouds smiled at me

urging me to reach to kiss them

that smile on their face, made me a little shy

 

the birds flying, making patterns pretty

encouraged me to go, join their flock

to go to a world of dreams

so I never would have to cry

 

that day….

as the child in me, told me to fly

i tried & with each try 

was born – a new me….

mySestina Dreampack

mySestina Dreampack

dare I today to go ahead and dream

dare I today to Dream of a Dreampack

to consist of a world must we create

A world so full of compassion, genuineness

With no hatred in the hearts staying there

Where sorrow is never to follow no one

Loneliness to have no place to survive

Merriment and giggles spread all around

A world where no one ever to sleep hungry

With a home to belong to every soul

Warm clothes to save skin from freezing

Cool breeze to soothe from the burning sun

A Dreampack to offer eternal love

Where souls connect with their soul mate

Holding each other in their arms so loving

Their eyes to see the reflection of each other

Lips to kiss, to speak the words of affection

They would cry together if they must

Laughter to be shared eating dinner together

Never to cause hurt, no harm in any form..

The Dreampack to consist of another dream

A place where we can see the nature glowing

lush green trees, no cemented towers

pure water to fall from the mountains

to bathe mother earth, make it flourish

animals don’t need to die of human greed

they too have a home to make their young ones to sleep

a river to flow for each one of them

together they all to drink water with no poison

My Dreampack to have much more on the list

Am I asking for a little too much

Must I not make any sacrifice

Must I include as much as I want

After all

It’s a Dreampack

Must I not, deny it

Of any Dreams, I may ever Dream of

***

Huge thanks to my Dear friend – Patty Wolters of Kruidje-Roer-Me-Niet to inspire me to build this Dreampack.

an Island Magical

an Island Magical

where, there would be

flowers of all kinds

there, where we will have

LOVE to bind

where, there shall be

no place for pain

there, where we will have

happiness to rain

where, there everyone

will get to LIVE their dream

there, where each soul

is eager to GIVE

am I imagining

a place Unimaginable

is it possible

to have this place on earth

or can we only get to see it

in the heaven of the almighty

are we all not tired

of this old world of ours

are we all not craving

for a fresh & peaceful

an Island so Magical

oh Dreams & the other State of Us

oh Dreams & the other State of Us

ambiguous lives, lived by the living

in twin states of being awake or dreaming

overwhelming yet secretive

intrigues us souls to discover the relevance

the genuineness or the forgery

of both the worlds we spend our breaths in

are we real with these eyelids shut

or the color with our eyes open, is faithful

a mystery to remain so, never to be revealed

oh dreams and the other state of us

The Red Eyed Dragon

The Red Eyed Dragon

A Palace

gloomy and dull

countless rooms with no windows

forbidding the sun, to light its darkness

heavy smell of rust in its walls

the ceiling, disturbingly high

as if some giant was to walk inside

no movements, no signs of life

the only sound coming from its thick silence

a heavy continuous snore

the pitch of it going too high, then coming low

making heavy music, fearsome to the ears

inside the palace so strangely awkward

deep in the room in the most center

lazying, on the coins of gold

watching over the treasure prodigious

The Red Eyed Dragon
