calligraphy ink
drips from a tip
of the finger
in my mind those words
I never said

  in this world
of cell phone selfies
I lift a pen
to ply the dim seas of mind
to discover the shape of me

    after our summer
her cold note
I re-trace my steps
                  to the exit

popping aspirin
did little to lessen
the sting
of those spiked words …
I wait for the night to pass

space Kala Ramesh - India

  ice calving
as another berg slips
into the sea ...
effects we don’t intend
ripple all around us

    freshly green
leaves fall among
the litter
on every step …
oh what might have been
