Heart needs few words

He kept on giving
And details……..
On and on……..

She calmly listened.....
Without saying a word.

At last when he was exhausted,

She slowly put her hands on his.
Her eyelids closing slowly,
……Pause of few moments
Transmitted the essence.

“I am sorry”
Was his response


Tears from his eyes carried with it
Hollow logic.

Not Funny!

Not  funny!

He said no, she accepted,
He was not cooperative, she was patient
He threw tantrums, she kept quiet
He lied, she understood
He ignored, she tolerated
He criticized, she remained positive.

When he turned sarcastic:
Witty though it seemed
It pierced deep,
Hurting CHILD in her.

Reacting sharply,
She exited the scene.

OSI prompt : Sarcastic

Passions...... Pain & Pleasure

Passions…. pain  &  pleasure

Want to win, control, gain…..
Ego rules,
Passions run high
Reasons are subordinated.
Reasons followed as fear looms
Pain persists.

When her conscious turned to giving,
Passions take different shape.
Creativity and enthusiasm.
Heart sings.
Passionate about her work,
Joy and love flows.
OSI Prompt  : Passionate

A Mom.

To many she may appear to be
Burning out…..

She is just fulfilling
Her need within,
To love.

Her Family.

A Bird

How does it matter what reigns?
Winter or spring,
Summer or rains?

Seasons for flowers to blossom or not…
All that matters is
I am in harmony,
And love blooms within.

I have wings or not……
Am I light enough to glide
And silently
Enter your heart?

(OSI Prompt: Humility. Thanks to my friend from Athen,  ρομπερτ)

Evening. Closer to truth.

 As a day slowly turns into an evening,
Brightness, shine and brilliance fade,
Vigor diminishes.

Revealed are true colors,
Beauty that cools.

Consciousness reveals itself easily
Through a fading form.
Sense of beingness begins to free
From mix up with form.

Form will dissolve.
Day will be over.

Stillness of night
Is eternal.
Expressed again as Dawn.

(OSI Prompt : Evening)
