Vermin Drabbles of Disquiet

Vermin Drabbles of Disquiet
Like a monsoon
Drifting on the Aegean sea
You made promises of love
A winter rainy
Spellbound in life’s Sahara
You made promises of love

My Banjara evenings
Drowned in tea cups
Made no noise
Vermin drabbles of disquiet
Had no poise

Getting dry in spells of rain
Is your old habit
I know
Measures of your laughter
Never mine you know?

There are times when you love to love the times
A cliche
Tired of times
I wonder
If time had two dimensions
Could have drawn a perfect circle
On a perfect plane
With two centers
(A realist you know!)
But dimensions are three
And you!

These wasted hours
Could have fetched the best prices
If traded like commodities
In Futures market
I wish!
But I can’t
Dear love…
Like a monsoon drowned in The Aegean sea
You made promises of love
Of  love, monsoons and recollections.
