Loneliness is magical Dewy tears in a dark space Conjuring images of you; Breathless whispers turn To a white noise, yet Sleep eludes, and I embrace Another wakeful night. When the fog rolls in The mist kisses all of me Warm, clammy, musky. Wild scents of promises Permeates, as muted sighs Only to remind of tenderness And endless snuggles Under winter afghans!
This weekend, I wrote for a new poetry prompt and experimented with AI- generated visual art. Here is what I created:
In quiet slumber Warm against the fireplace Memories of a lifetime wrapped In woven wool and frosted cap Frayed edges of time, heaving In tandem with the seasons A love that often whithered, Bloomed again but never drowned In destiny’s torrential rains
I opened my eyes To the blazing starlights Wrapped in reveries of love That once was wild and young Now succumbed to words Creating a yawning cavern With unbridled harshness No bridge to cover the distance; That wayward moment beckons With melting goodbyes To let go of all the gripe Follow the beloved Where the paths diverted, And in that sleepless night I heard the creak of longing – There was one shoe on the step
One day we’ll meet Under the Gulmohur tree Not to find shaded solace From the dripping summer heat But to touch its crimson blooms That carry the flamboyance Of a forever romance We’ll stand there at sunset Fingers entwined, waiting For that carefree innocence To slowly rub into our veins And make our forgetful souls Remember our lost love again
