Trees Uprooted

There was a time When man and wild  Lived together for quite a while The sun the moon the planets too Took care to nourish both and true The gradual years as they rolled by Tore the bond that grew and bound The two together soon tore apart When greed […]

The Flight

Out of Blue He flew Down, into my terrain, Not like bird, but Like an aero plane Promising to take me away Far, far, away Beyond distant horizon Towards heaven’s gateway. Swept me off my feet A rare exotic treat Sheer bliss I closed my eyes Still saw fluttering fireflies […]
