Home is where my shadow grows, the soaring spirits leap.
I chase for idioms; tame them
to my need of pulsating my silences.
I script Gandhāra. It grants me the fierce tenderness
of watching my spine, my muscle in art.
Poems sizzle on the white page/s.
A breathing spirit that guides me in life.
Harp of my tradition , let me strike the strain
immersed in mists.
It restores the child in us and those missing senses.
Four walls form a powerful song that erupts suddenly
in dark recesses of soul, home takes me complete and cured!
I navigate my kite, the sky is
my dear sheer blue life.
