Last Tryst





This city
witness of my
Anniversaries
of birth, death
and a million
in-betweens

sprinkled with
memories
of loss and love
of lessons
and joys

of aging
ripening, growing
wounds of evolution
and love bites
of knowing

hundreds of 
goodbyes
await me
in every
nook and cranny

My soul
whirls
in your circular heart
and sprinkles
itself generously

chanting
last birth
last tryst !

Farewell Notes to Love








I touched love briefly
like an eclipse 
touches the moon

tides and journeys
same and yet
never the same again

you will be
a milestone
and my whole journey
home.

-------------------------------------------

the joys
can become sorrows
or lessons
or nothing

Love is a
versatile alchemist

--------------------------------------------

Longing is
not the worse
the worse
is 
hopeless longing

--------------------------------------------

sometimes healing
is impossible
or may take forever
sometimes
it just takes
a glance, a gaze.

-----------------------------------------

Farewells
are never easy
sometimes what we bid
goodbye, stays
what we carry
gets lost to life.
