• Watchtower… a dog becomes concrete and large enough to house men. An ocean is its reign. The is n say what will rise with the waves, what will suddenly appear across the horizon, pirated treasures or monsters of the deep.

    The power of your presence, like breath too long, too short, too loud, but essential to living. The grip of your gaze, the smile that spills the secrets of the heart even as it tries to hide them… you influence me in so many ways.

    It is not adorned, my heart. Vulnerable and fresh like a delicate flower, it dares to open its petals towards you.

    The rocks folded holding layers of secrets, calcified moments, who would reveal their stories to only the deserving. Those who could un-code the language of history not written in books, not whispered or shouted, but hangs silently, waiting for the ripe mind.

    Will you keep me in that trial box till I rot or plead guilty..? I didn’t know it was a crime! I didn’t know it was possible even – till it happened. You look for a noose, I’m a two timer after all. Wrong. It was […]

    It must have been ice – thin, transparent treacherous, like a cunning lover who wants to hold onto you, trapping you in his web or intrigues only his spidery mind can weave…

  • They whisper in the night, tickling the stars to laugh away their light. Words – hums without sound. Saying nothing, saying all. They float in the air and if you breathe right, breathe deep, they’ll dissolve in […]

  • Harvinder commented on the post, engine 6 years, 11 months ago

    It’s the power that comes from a focus, knowing where you are going. Having fuel in you and someone to navigate so you don’t go off the path… but above all it’s driving force that comes from having a goal, that […]

    They crawl in my head, sometimes I’m tickled and laugh. Since no one can see them crawling inside, they think I’m mad. When they sink their cruel fangs and bite my brain, groans burst like window panes in a […]

    He’d plucked the two blue flowers with the delicate petals, carefully avoiding the thorns so that the hint of white in the center of the flower wouldn’t tear. He gave them to her with a quiet look, she smiled and […]

    Your face, a perfect poster. Chiseled, planned, meant for an audience, for a response. Cunning. I’m waiting for it to peel off.

  • Harvinder commented on the post, obey 7 years, 4 months ago

    I know only the sync that my heart finds with the universe, it requires no conscious obedience. It is simply things falling into their right places, no rebellion, no struggle, no sacrifice. A cosmic harmony.

    The rain drop trickling down the leaf, like sculptor’s eye over the stone. Blue mountains on a dewy morning, like your dreamless eyes..

  • Harvinder commented on the post, abstract 7 years, 5 months ago

    The acid in stomach that becomes a growl, that’s not abstract!
    “Love is” you say? Watch your breath, it writes love stories with vapour on cold windows…

  • Harvinder commented on the post, artistry 7 years, 6 months ago

    I have none of it, except the question marks my eyebrows become when you spread your words out like medals, or the curve of the hip perhaps as it swings under your sly gaze, I have no talent, my voice is a guileless wave, if you are swept you are ready.

  • Harvinder commented on the post, mutual 7 years, 6 months ago

    Your eyes turn away icy polite, denying a bridge of fire its rope between us. I let the trap down on my heart. We are in our glass houses now, sealed. You can’t make love through glass.

  • Harvinder commented on the post, conviction 7 years, 6 months ago

    I am convinced you are there – as surely as I am there – as empowered, as helpless, as eager, as hopeful. I am in the body, you’re not, that’s all.

  • Harvinder commented on the post, stacks 7 years, 6 months ago

    There they are. The sock with the hole from where our secrets slipped through. The shawl, still stained with your acid tears. The bra with the lipstick, telling scarlet tales. All there, even the ribbon that braided popcorn memories of childhood, in funny patterns. The wardrobe is a secret door to Wonderland. Come, let’s snuggle […]

  • Harvinder commented on the post, port 7 years, 7 months ago

    Go. I’ve parked my heart – for a while. I will not sail – for a while. The wind has howled too loudly, the waves have licked with poisonous tongues, the moon has enticed and misled, like you, like you. I will let the gentle lap of the water at the shore rub against my […]

  • Harvinder commented on the post, average 7 years, 7 months ago

    It doesn’t exist. There is no such thing as ‘average’! It is mind’s ‘maya-creation’ – we think it’s real, but it doesn’t exist. The average student, the average housewife, the average age… a figure that points to a nebulous space that we can’t pin down, except by coming to an imprecise figure.
