Two poems by Ananya S Guha

I am not a silent poet

1
A crutch
I hold on
to
a swivel of hope
in
tantalising wind
the flesh summons
and the wind blows
into
skies as luminous
lights spread into
eerie silence.
2
Umbrellas are painted
sticks to ward off
evil and rains
also the encroaching
heat as a stick
is a rejoinder
to what is happening
in sun and sky.

Four poems by Dah Helmer

the curly mind linguistically innovative poetry - weird & risky

Seed

,,
Without knowing
our beginning
we do not know
how far we have come
,,
The first seed sprouted
as wordless space
,,
Yes, we have named it
many times
and still
we do not know it

,,
,,

Vapor
..
If only to drift away
to another universe
that knows
no objects
no boundaries
no suffering

,,
,,

Rocks
..
We are like rocks
held in
deep agony
,,
Sealed inside
the high pitched squeal
the shuddering heart

,,
,,

Man
..
I say this softly / Man,
a forceful creature / a living
misfortune
misguided
and misdirected

,,
