What’s Cooking? Not Food…

Theme Thursday, What’s Cooking?

what’s cooking

in that troubled forest
where the tree tops
touch the arms of clouds
and where shrubs caress
the ears of the deer 

what’s cooking
now in their minds –
of those who try to read the sky
by speaking non-existing mouths 

what’s cooking
will be laid
on the tray of truth
and eaten

Season change

Theme Thursday, March 15 – Season

It’s a sentence in a prison – every season.
Locked inside it you will find
weather, climate, temperatures that drop or rise.

Once it’s over,
with a feeling of relief,
simply step on forward
to the next dream of release. 

Seasons change
and then again
You rearrange
your dress and habits
to suit the outside
with its measures
and bring about
all-seasons pleasure.

Memory of a Glass House

One Single Impression – Betrayal; Poets United – Glass Houses; We Write Poems – Better out than in; Theme Thursday – Memory


I remember a winter

in a house made of glass

naked, numb, stupefied


I remember yearning to go

and get lost in the snow

But how would you know?

Almost a poem, NaPoWriMo, day 11

Here are the prompts on which I acted: Sunday Scribblings – Messenger; One Single Impression – Epidemic; Poets United – Headlines; Theme Thursday – Face; We Write Poems – Almost a poem; Three Word Wednesday – Adamant-Fabricate-Peculiar

The messenger was adamant:
Those headlines had not been fabricated
And we were facing
A peculiar and epidemic poem,
Whose weirdest peculiarity
That it was “almost a poem”.

Theme Thursday said “paper”; One Single Impression suggested “sarcastic”; Sunday Scribblings prompted “free”. A combination reads as follows:


A letter coming slow and late

Reading in a cold, sarcastic tone,

in fact, is license to be free.

Secret Space

Theme Thursday said Space; Writer’s Island said Secret. I combined.


A secret lies in outer space

concealing teasers to replace

the double-edged truth we seek

so we may bore ourselves to death in just a week.
