a worm-hole took me home

on my way to the wood,
i once saw rivers,
with crazy turbulence
on the concentric lives
of a fallen tree-

and the micro-trajectories
of little atoms
on the wall
of an eroded rock-face-

while a spider by the side
was silently
weaving a space-time rupture

to take me to the world,
that has somehow gone
into a comfortable oblivion-

amidst the countless
rat-races, i am supposed to come first.

 the sacred dragonflies

the green of the mountains
encircling the holiness
of my mother, 
are now covered
in milky white drapes;

the temples are quiet,
silently watching
over the sufferings,

still you can hear
the gods talking, and
the buzz of dragonflies
flying like helicopters

over the little
patches of her distant remains. 


we somehow look
into your distant past
when you were there
all alone-

making a rupture
in timelessness-

drinking beams of light
and the liquid fields
of cosmic architecture
to be
the unseen lonely one.

is not that strange ?
the way a being bathed
in super-seas of light,

somehow appears
to be the darkest one,
a beautiful yin and yang-

painted on the canvass
of an inconceivable breadth.
