Soulful canvas


the suburban road rushed
its dreams shimmering in flowing craving lights
tied to building blocks and building egos
vicious grooves    like patchy skin   discolored  soulless guises

a few stars i gathered   tied in words
an apple can be an apple without label
and the soul can walk high
among stars   bathing in celestial glow
keeping a friend in ever dyeing and ever rising moon


pastures unbounded   thorn less   canvas
nurtures without asking   soulful dreams

  4. I specially like the second stanza, to find meaning and bathe in the celestial glow ~ These dreams nurture us and make us paint beautiful canvas ~

  7. It's kind of whimsical, like a dream-state somewhere close to waking, very moving.

    Yes, Sreeja! We often wish the best for those close to our hearts. The best thing sometimes friends can be more receptive to our needs than family members! Great write!
