Lets Talk

They Say Distances disintegrate
When people talk.
We tried did we not?
We made sounds like shrieks
And invoked storms and thunder
Within our widely spaced out lives
We talked... and disintegrated

Often, looking back I believe
We should have shared some more days
Of silences
And the storm would have ebbed
We would have been together again.

Desperate in our distances
Confined in our closeness
I wish we were like winds
One within the other

The trees would have done the talking.

Long Winter Chill

If I could do a Neruda,
You would have smelt of summer roses
And Autumn pine.
There would have been sheer love
Of the kind that causes our hearts to ache
And loneliness bordering the divine.
You would have had so many secrets
Welling up as in a girly giggle
And so few friends who would hear them all.I am no Neruda
I can't paint you a Summer breeze
Amidst this long winter chill.

The Color That Blinds

Every time I close my eyes
I see the green of Kerala countryside
The dark greens of lumbering rubber trees
The even tranquil green of silent paddy fields
The light lemon yellow green from tender clover leaves 

And then I remember your dupatta
Deep red or possibly maroon
Standing out among the Kerala countrysides.

Hush

You don't have to tell me.
I just know.
Its that little sniffle that comes through
The unexplained pauses
The slow responsesI know when you call
Just because you needed to cry.
