Williamsji Maveli Poems
My boat never sinks
My boat never sinks While you board my life boat I assure, a decorated seat
No Fear At All...................
Within you, my dearest, the most Elegant, charming, celestial women, hidden is my own infinite powers, and other endless possibilities,
Yesterday gas gone; All I wish for you, Is my heart at your altar… This will never change.
Never Alone Every sunrise is opening new windows with vivid colours,
Beauty old…… on the top of the mountain stones Amidst the huge heaps of the sands
Desert Love Staying for long in a barren land of desert Me and you never ever in life to depart
Still i remember the first day when we met on a sea shore during dusk, we both sat in a celestial lordliness you came and stood biting your nail tops, in a desperate mood
I see eternity in a morsel of sand and infinity in an olive leaf
Never go away
Never go far and away, not even for a second! I stay closer to worship you always I will be waiting for you, at a crowded station when the train arrives from unknown destination
The Desert Flames
desert flames I woke up today in the early morning In darkness of yesterday's mourning
My third Eye
With my third eye With my third eye, I can visualize always, my dear
The Life book
Alphabets were heart broken Left leg of 'A' is missing Words are sentenced for Lifelong imprisonment
The Desert Path.....
Walking along the desert Path, loneliness of the flaming sunlight reigning down…refining all it's touches Hard rocks, small plants…and even hearts
It snows heavily on hillside Light breeze stretches wide, The body alters….. It rains lightly outside
It snows heavily on hillside
Light breeze stretches wide,
The body alters…..
It rains lightly outside
Sun light close its shade
The soul departs……
I crossed the boundary
in silence till the end
of my dreams
I will see you no more
No more lights….
No more shades
