Mary’s Christmas

Once upon a midnight clear, when the cold, cozy breeze consumed December’s time. There was a child so dear, her lovely hums I hear, like a kid given a hundred dime, Walking along the sidewalk made with bricks, hopping merrily, with an ice bag full of candies in her hand “Hello Mary, you’re up so […]

Maybe Tomorrow

Today is the day I will make it Take a step forward I can hear my heartbeat I can hear my heart beat Take a step forward I will make it Today is the day 1 Views

What Survives

What survives a fire? Let me catalogue for you what the flames didn’t steal from me. Her diamond ring (it never quite matched the sparkle in my baby’s eye). Her carbon-fiber skis (a must-have for the St. Moritz crowd, even though she didn’t ski). Her sterling silver tea service (a display item for others to […]

Over Time

I waited for you to come back for days, weeks, years perhaps lifelong since I can remember And you never came back You always in my dreams You always in my hopes Always you And now I see you again I do not need you anymore. 3 Views


I woke up late this morning to an empty cup, an empty bed, a forlorn message in my head, all I ever left unsaid, just an old man nearly dead, forgetting all the love I lost, grandchildren who’ll forget me too, regretting what I didn’t do, realizing too late to even move, I’ll die unfulfilled […]

I’m Counting My Days; I’m Counting My Blessings

The Singing Ship Tale

Immortal he was, but he did not know, Till a deadly plague hit his crew in open sea, Death was certain, but they would never bow, As men when they are sailing, they are always free. So with music they decided to welcome death, Septet, sextet, quintet, quartet, trio, duet, One by one they all […]

Monica Only Had One Ear

Monica only had one ear. In all her years she’d never heard the call of love, Or the call of the market trader who sold prescription sunglasses She’d never be able to wear. “Only Five Pounds a Pair!” He thought she had lovely hair and sad eyes. She passed him by every morning Never knowing […]
