Forever A Tourist

Forever A Tourist

Forever A Tourist On the highway  Of life I am  Forever a tourist. Insignificant, maybe, But not a shadow on the sidewalk of society; Borrowing the experiences of others — Continuing on my merry way.

To The Night’s Dark Seduction

To The Night’s Dark Seduction A ripple;  A downpour, Vibrant waters, Of love and ecstasy, Every drop an elixir, Urging. Coaxing. Inviting To take a plunge. Drenched with vibrancy, Ablution of negativity, And distrust, You, holding my hand And me, Holding my breath, Uncertain. Unknowing. Together, Taking a deep breath, Under the water, There’s another … Read more

Footsteps of Perfection

Metamorphosing from a reckless youngster, To being a responsible father, Getting only a few moments to prepare for fatherhood, As your little angles emerged in the world, Wriggling in your arms, While you absorbed the reality of your daughters’ arrival, Singing songs to being nonpareil storyteller, You completely absorbed the switchover of the role. ….. … Read more
