Electrical wirings...


Insular feelings that’s what we all share
Electrical wirings vibrating the air!

One impulse to hold - another to leap!
…Rollover and fall asleep - counting sheep.

Insular feelings hold the lightning in the cloud:
It’s here now our passions long to be free and proud.

Sitting alone is bitter, gazing out-
The window, when you’re in your lonely hideout.

It’s much better to be a rainbow, ‘Honey’—
Let the pot of gold in your heart mint-money.

Love, is just an electrical pulse—if
…If your body and soul, can’t read them hieroglyphs.

Insular feelings crackle inside my head…
“Is this the girl the firecracker - I’m to wed? ”

One more impulse like this, and I’ll propose
Too climb a steeple, without any clothes.

Just to see her insular feelings exposed…
I’ll crack a joke! Leave her feelings juxtaposed.

Electrical wirings vibrating the air!
Guess I’ve given-up playing solitaire.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
