You only imagined it, cause it was already there..it probably did happen..Perhaps a mere momentary lapse it was...but it was always there... it still is... you just can’t see it any-more, you opened your eyes too soon, ..

Life goes on...

Just another....
Saw a man today, a cigarette hung out his mouth, .. A banana in his hand, he stood there on the side of the road, looking to the other side.. Saying ba ba, holding is hand out, and then as if asking someone to wait, he raised his hand... I looked.. A cow stood there, looking over its shoulder at him.. He scuttled across the street, nearly bumping into someone who looked like he’d just come back from a bob marley concert.. Hair doo and all..

He rushed across.. Bent down, and put the banana in front of the cows mouth, cigarette still dangling.. It ate.. He spoke to it gently, like one would do his child.. It chewed,  ..  he seems to massage the banana gently in its mouth,..His left patting its head.. Slowly running is hands along the full length of its body stopping at its stomach, and then touching his fingers to his lips and back on the stomach.. A ritual, a sign of respect, endearment, awe even...., straightening up, he touched its head again and began to walk away.. Not before looking back at the cow , and pointing ahead as if explaining where he was going.. He was explaining.. The cow stood there.. Looked at him, he walked a few steps and the cow walked as well..

No one stopped to see, or gave these actions of this man a second glance.. Cars, bikes cyclists, pedestrians walked by.. Life went on..
I bid my mechanic a goodbye,, whose garage I was at,.. Walked to my bike, got on and rode off..
Just another, man
Just another cow
Just another pedestrian
Just another biker
Just another .. .... .... ... . ...
Just another day in India..
Life goes on…

Hush...

Don't mind the darkness,
I'll find a way,
Its just a different dawn of light...
a darker light they say...

  The Snake..

The wise arse toad : - never trust a snake, who goes on about not being poisonous..he's obviously a constrictor..a snake's a snake..

Dancing and why..




Actions do speak louder than words the owl thought to himself, as he sat and watched his friend the toad do a mean shimmy shingle atop a branch on a tree across the stream..

The toad had sat there all evening, atop a jutting rock in the gentle stream which flowed aimlessly out to nowhere..… croaking in his grandest of tones about his love for dance.. Yet not moving, not an inch.... just croak ..ribbid..ribbid..croak..ribbid...

As if struck by sudden wisdom in the form of a lash on his back.. He suddenly stopped, looked around, looked up ..and leaped into the air, landing on an overhanging branch that gently brushed the stream..

He began to dance …he danced and he danced….The  moon looked on as if already knowing each move the toad legged..as if  he had seen it being rehearsed a 100 times before....he watched on smiling..as he quietly coordinated with passing clouds, to provide  perfect stage- light , that seemed to highlight the toads ever so brilliant footwork..
 
He danced all night he did… croaked a little too… I love to dance… I love to dance..
He danced all night...he danced all right..

Music for the night was provided by the creaking trees..The hustling leaves, the wind and his howl..Amidst the cacophony of various creatures of the night..They joined in from time to time in perfect chorus like a well rehearsed band ....the owl joined in too...It all fell into place..

I waited for you at sundown..


 I waited for you at sundown...

i saw you in an egret..
and watched you while you danced..

the gold seemed to devour you
as you stopped and shot me a glance...
 

dance bella dance i hushed.... we have time yet...

always time and never enough with you..you quietly said with fret... ( heh heh heh )


so u danced a little..very shy at first ..
while all i could do right then
was sit and watch with thirst...

Then the dark came quietly..

and u faded into the night...
i looked for you suddenly..
but you were nowhere in sight...

dance bello dance,.. i now heard a soft voice say
and there you were my starlight, shining bright as day..

Solo...



i lie in wait...
with gilded breath...
u crawl up my skin
like the hang-mans death

if i shed a tear by any chance

please remember
its just the stars that dance...
 
If by chance you see a white crow...
please remember  

he is just my soul in tow..

i only gave you all i could...

am sorry i was misunderstood...

raise your axe now high and dry..

don't mind the winds howl and muffled cries...

send me to a place called home...

where everything is bright..dry and gold..

now if by chance your blade goes a amiss..

carry me please through this dark wet abyss...

i only wanted to hold your hand..

now instead...
am in no man's land...
 
Is that sympathy i see in your eye...
or just a burning past that's hungry to die...

if by chance u take again to me...

please just remember, its still simple me..

Once you promised ... once u told...

of stories so nice..
they were covered in gold...

I smiled back then...

& laughed with the wind..
or perhaps that really never did begin...

Now come fast & lay me to sleep...

the hangman's has his duty to upkeep....

I bid you farewell now

my sparkling one...
Am just a simple man.
you've completely undone....
