Tropical Flower



are embedded

in nature.

Like sudden


Gone in a



The expiry dates


on 'rinanubandha'.

How to comprehend,

let alone

fight such

vagaries of destiny?

When lacerations,

begin to close in,


may learn to

bow down,

in gratitude,


equally arbitrarily,

what was cherished,

might never ever

have even

come to be.

Pastel Bird

She removes her hat

Prayer flags flutter in her hair

She smells of Winter

In high mountain passes

Our spirits catch fire

We rise with her on the crisp clean air

Joyful at her return

Praying for Peace

Winding down the day
I feel the energies ebb
as the world finds sleep

Each morning bears the potential
for revival

As the flower wakes to the rising sun
with brilliant energy and vibrant color

So too can we greet the day

A revival of our spirit
A fresh new start
with stunning potential
