In a choice between good and evil, people will always choose what 'they perceive to be good'.- Sasha Gracious

Veil Of Winter

It blew and blew, the winter wind, It blew to kiss my window pane; A kiss it was, like lovers do, Two bodies entwined in a firefly lane. Late is the winter sun to rise, I stoke embers beneath the mantlepiece; Sweater and stockings and scarves and gloves, By the fire I thaw my frozen... Continue Reading →

The Imprudent Wife

Rain whipped a torrent among the gusty trees, She knelt to kindle the sooted hearth, Embers refused to yield her pleas, She sobbed helpless to the nature's wrath. Winds roared and rustled in the nearby vales, Cattle bellowed in the quivering crib, She stormed to save the rain-soaked bales, But in vain and helpless like... Continue Reading →

Daddy’s Little Girl

She nestled in his arms a bird newborn, Eyes of pearls and a Roman nose. Asleep by his heart, her fingers curled his own, Oblivious and away from the worldly woes.

When It Rains

Skies swollen grey with tints of majesty, Trees slumber under a misty spell, Billowy clouds part momentary, Sunbeams dive deep into the verdant dell. Wings of winds deliver your scent, I'm bathed, I'm drenched, I smell of you. Where art thou, O' angel of torment? Do the winds not whisper how I burn for you?... Continue Reading →


Dragon of fear I've slayed, ferocious in the face of life, Persistent and powerful, I wade through the river of strife. Shattered, a wavebeaten ship on the shore, Make no mistake, I'm a diamond alive in the ore. Misunderstood I am for my reasoning and rebellion, Silence is a weakness I forgive this mindless assumption.... Continue Reading →
