Palms and Hearts


Blows blasted cases
By egotists - termed leaders;
Censoring for the fools…


the only honey
that plant grooms in tick desert
with no spoiling date.


Used to create the orb;
And things within and without;
And for steering beings…

My Reading Room:

Paints my page with reed;
Tames my palm to speak to eyes
And my brain to blow…

The Screen:

supports glassy eyes
and unglassed to glance for views
to just hiss and kiss.
Haiku is concise
and can sometimes be enjoyed
by rendering like song...

You'll live a lonely
Life without a lovely wife
And a caring one...

Kiss can kill a man;
Breast can buy his brain and make
his tongue to just flow...

When a man is not
happy, call his life partner -
joy will come closer...

In case they call me;
reveal to them my lyrics
and just seal your tongue...
