Caretaker

Caretaker

Those who take care of us
They are our breathing mates
Absorbing our filth
Without complaining a thing
Can there be anything more good than trees?

Jogging Along

Jogging Along

Jogging along the friendly path
Trut, trut, trut, trut
Early morning held sway
Rhythm of the legs dissolving
Into the rhyme of the ancient mariner
While eyes falling into a pattern
Like searching for a lost treasure
Trut, trut
Jogging back the same path
Another rhythm…another rhyme

Hour 13

A Man of Compassion

A Man of Compassion

A man of his compassion
Deserved something better
Than Shahpur, the place he lost everything
His dwelling, longing and belonging
Where his heart stifled a quarter
And met his life and destination

Hour 12

Grass

Grass

Green swaying in the winds
Rain lashed figures enjoying the rainbow
Afternoon song comatose
Sweet popcorn
Selfie life

Hour 11

@varenyas

Moonshadow

Moonshadow

Running after the moonshadow
Over the clouds
Over the hills and over the plains
Holding the elusive streak of light
Lost in the meadows
Down to my last breath
Gasping and gasping…
The shadowless me wakes up
Moon goes over the bend casting a veil
Passing a secret smile

Hour 10

@varenyas

Stranger

Stranger

The man with a strange mask
Carries firefly caged in a bottle
Set out for a difficult task
To heat the porridge
For the uninvited guest
Staying in the invisible cottage

Hour 9

@varenyas

Tiger

Tiger

Tiger! Tiger! burning bright

In the forest of the night

What immortal hand or eye

Could frame thy fearful symmetry

Hour 8

@varenyas

Season of the Virus

Season of the Virus

The ancestor rises again
In its atavistic moment
Blanket spreads the entire humanity
Before one could forment
Swaths of territory won
As we face our gravest reality

Hour 7

@varenyas

Ideal Day

Ideal Day

Walking by the lake one early morning
I heard the sirens call
All precious things that the world can have
But the most precious of them all
Promised to be mine in the end
Was the auctioning of one ideal day
Where I can watch the Caterpillar turn into Butterfly
And old life begins again newly

Hour 6

@varenyas

Birth of the Suns

Birth of the Suns

Cosmic light rises inside the darkness
That the mountains envelop
Stealing its golden hue
Entrapped in the folds of the sky
And slowly spreads
