Nature’s Versatile Vignettes…

Standard

gravid
a slate-grey sky
frowning its wrath
amid tantrum throwing clouds,
showers blessings
of fluid poetry,

night dissolves
in its own pessimism,
leaving the moon forlorn
to blend in tequila sunshine
like ice-cream scoop
on mango jelly,
and orphaned stars
are adopted by benevolent bay
abounding in constellations.

whispers
of snow peppered
on wizened brow of winter,
echo in eerie night
moon shivers
and wraps itself
in warmth of muffler clouds
and stars hide
beneath the quilt of mist.

purple orchids
are syllables of evensongs,
reverberating
their exuberance under
the golden glow of sunbeams.

Snippets of Life…

Standard

haywire thoughts
are leaking fountain pens
spilling indigo selves
o’er carefree bosom
of azure cornflower skies,
to paint a nocturne
strewn in starlit whimsy.

oft the clouds
stealing meads’ hues,
drenched in versatile shades
with many a tale hidden
in their vagrant stride,
are my poetic muse.

crayons streak
a sunset on virgin white,
filling imagination
into sinews
of shriveling poetry.

kohl stains
untouched, unsuspecting blues,
of a Renoir sky,
periwinkles bloom
on horizons
as daylight tip-toes away
leaving chiaroscuros
etched on nascent night.

frosted cheeks
of wizened wrinkled winter,
glaze honeydew morns
in sepia tones
of caramelized sugar,
somewhere a cappuccino
breathes exotic whispers
of frothy dreams.

silent skies
are scattered in avian verbiage
while lotuses slumber
on sun-kissed ripples,
tall eucalyptuses
paint tall tales in fading light.
