Three Ravens

In the morning while I wandered, three ravens

took flight while leaving me quite startled

I wondered of their presence, so soon their haven

suddenly disrupted, though I chortled.

How odd to see such masked creature

on a day that does tease nature.

~

While I thought quite little of their departure

I did chuckle in my own quiet

how is it this day the begin their venture

as in their way I appear to riot.

Much life is often coincidental

seldom thought of as easily incidental.

~

I won’t pretend to have Edgar’s prowess with a bird

Just a Happy Halloween with words rather absurd.

Reeling in Midnight’s Anxiety

Glance toward the sky

the mood,

the more I think about

the lunacy; the absurd

notions sweep

across mind’s eye

~

Guide me through the havoc,

let me at least

find a way to calm

an edgy hallowing urgency,

cross paths with my ego,

find the setting sun to be surreal.

~

Grant me one wish

while baying at the shadowed

illumination. Every participant,

each contribution

clouds, a steady breeze, night chill,

the lights of the city mean little to me tonight.

~

I felt the presence of a strange reality,

then the sky arose to speak of sanity.

What Frightens a Ghost?

GHOSTS OF PUBLIC SPACES / ACTIONS ! – NIMALAN YOGANATHAN

Chilling season

Cowering moments

Medley of circumstance

~

When the world stops

Our reality becomes suspect

An indecisive gesture

~

Walking towards

An active classroom

Should doors open?

~

How many eyes

Will suddenly observe

Every step toward …

~

What if I trip?

Perhaps a sneeze

Watch me cry

~

Seems the season

Is right for peril

Masks consume the night

~

Yet the light of day

Frightens my mind

When asked to reveal

~

Open wounds

Hindered gait

In the eye of my peers

~

I am a ghost

Inside my own

Predicated world

~

Catastrophic tendencies

Prevent security

Night terrors consume

~

My mind as I enter

A room of certain scorn

Is this a God moment?
