dunes 1

Sat Shri Akal!


On Solarider's blog i saw these very beautiful pictures. He called them " Sofa Dunes".
Immediately i was inspired by these pics. I tried to more or less copy them, but his are far more better.
When i started writing this poem, so many thoughts were running through my mind. Too many thoughts. So i decided to make a series of poems on this "dune-theme". A few of them are roughly drawn already. This one is more or less in its final state. But knowing myself, you never know for sure.

dunes 1
why ask for more
out of pure syllables
fell yet my heart
you asked my head
i ran
i ran
into your rippled world
a morning and a noon
stumbled, stranded
in your secret dunes
i ran aground
to read and read again
your sacred runes
that night
eternity waved
in a cuneiform

Brilliant.
Love the way you've woven in what I perceive to be such a personalreflection of Sikhi from such a simple picture.

"you asked for my head"

Waheguru!

Thank you, Solarider Ji.

For the inspiration and for taking care of the mistakes.
For the words of encouragement too.

Sorry I'm not sure how you do that on blogger.com but the mistakes (if any) are nothing to worry about.

It's just fine as it is.

If ever there is a mistake in the text or any other alteration to the post after having published it - go back to the dashboard and click on edit posts. That'll do!
