indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

For whom i know not...5


Throes of desire
Throws me into ecstatic Helplessness

Tears of
A moment once lived
Flow on slopes of life

Come,
Clasp my hand
In yours while
Walking on
Slippery slopes

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
