somewhere ~ a decima

somewhere near the afternoon
the sun lit up a dream I'd drawn
with true colours of my life's storm
that turns, on a whim, glee to gloom
or takes me right up to the moon
and back for breakfast served
- a shot of coffee, extra verve
only for me, that little more
of my sweet life that I adore,
...all that I totally deserve!

the way down ~ a decima

from mountain tops my journey starts
skiing, spraying powder white snow
sprinkling sunkissed glee on the go
skirting trees, through hurdles I dart
leaving footprints on nature's art sliding slopes till the day is done
living the moment on the run
falling in love with surrender
making a note to remember
the way down can be just as fun

deeper ~ #writephoto

Deeper and deeper into Time
where when warps and does a cartwheel
for free romantic hearts to steal
moments for each other to rhyme
floating off to a space sublime
Stars burst in synchronicity
laughing with clocks and gravity
oneness of the universe smiles
when souls meld, we stop a while
we wonder…in the infinity

To believe ~ a decima

Lighting up the way to heaven
she points her finger at the stars
arching herself to reach afar
humming a big dream to live in
rooted firm in truly being
all of the selves that she can be
even beyond her destiny
plunging into futures with care
calm, confident, with her feet bare
to make her choices. To believe.

travels in the wild ~ a decima

music travels weird in my wild

white whimsical mind; yellows seep

whenever hues of jazz and blues weep

silver rivulets of rhythms mild,

mauves and purples flash a shy smile

strumming pink on joyous eardrums

chiming ta- ta-rum-pum-pums

to heartbeats running unstable

as crescendo hushes hazel

and soul’s rhapsody blushes plum

Fizz ~ a decina

Awoken by the sound of fizz

I peeped through my lashes of sleep

plucked up temerity to peep

and found my friends thrilled to their gills

laughing loud over lagerfills

They saw me on the top of the stairs

and aimed a can up in the air

the draught brought the beer straight to me

which I caught with dexterity

This sip of fizz beyond compare

Synesthesia ~ in a decima

Zebra crossing calls cheerily

black hallelujahs, white hurrahs

inviting me to run across

Green signal singing ‘Come to me’

Feet tip-tapping Piano keys

Amber staccato then prevails

I skip hurriedly and exhale

Red spotlighting an orchestra

symphony colours my aura

blissed in synesthetic cocktail

I picked ~ a decima

I picked sea shells crusted with white

pickled in ancient ocean spice

I dug my toes in, it felt nice

till a crab crawled up for some light

and gave me a terrible fright

My three year old lungs yelled out loud

spraying sand and shells all around

I lost my balance and flat fell

face down on that crawling crab shell

running my little pride aground

magnetic ~ a decima

Considering we’re poles apart

and yet together we’re great,

Why do opposites attract fate?

Definitely doesn’t seem smart

especially at every  start

squishing tightly, one negative

with one exultant positive

But somehow magnetic charm

amalgamates flower and thorn

And therefore in oneness we live

Reena’s exploration challenge – singularity

the more I live ~ a decima

Of Time and lifetime of a kiss

the more I live, the less I know

of moments moving fast or slow

of memories we made to miss

of ecstacy and lulling bliss

of the mulled minutes we pine for

of yesterday and tomorrow

of that one precious pink sunset

of that lifetime our lips first met

the more I live, the less I know


Linked to lulling ~ a haiku

in the fading light

time drips drops of memories

lulling reality
