Deep Ocean Fish

I believe I had seen

Far in depth of water clean

A lightening Bolt of marine

A darker ghost golden green.

As I swam past the trench

Crushing load was immense

Swimsuit! thanks for defence

Helmet light added sense.

And then it passed me

Swimming across me

I can’t made it out,

Curious blob of

Unseen world that

I couldn’t even shout.

Then It shied off the trail

I followed its glistening tail

Faster than Usain’s scale

I can’t keep up so I failed.

I looked for it everywhere

In deeper vents and coral spheres

But hard luck, had it there

In darker place it wasn’t fair.

Then Oxygen depleted

In my cylinder

So I finally swam out,

Deep Ocean Fish 

Would I see you again?

I really have my doubts.


Desert Wind

To my lost she sang

A choir of a stream

In the music of the sand

Kindled at its seams.

Wider than a thar

And lonesome more than moon

Further than a far

And swooner than a swoon.

So I sat and heard

We laughed and too cried

She swore at every word

And caressed me in the nights.

The dunes were her friend

And rattle was musician

Cactus was her child and

Water was magician.

I heard her for the days

I walked along with her

When angered she dismays

Yet songs were never bitter.

So proud of her sand

And folks with whom she played

When I found my homage land

With last rhyme she swayed.

Sang, ‘I am a desert wind,

‘I sing about my all

‘If you hear I never change

‘winter, autumn or fall.’
