Dear Photograph

It was taken here, perhaps eons ago
Over by the building that stands no more.
A person stood by quivering, lips so pale,
Staring at a photo, with a silence stone cold.

Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

A Shortcut to Heaven

Hell’s gate opened up
Swallowing me in whole
Crazy as it may seem
’twas not too bad at all.

Leading to nowhere sure.
The way was not that scenic
At least I wasn’t there alone.

I stood by the ancient fire
One that the souls endure
Neither quelled, nor quenched
With a pang, my heart wrenched.

Started with a benign fondle
Sparked by a Love so pure
Oh ye mother, who stayed strong
How could your ember go so wrong?

Or anguish and disdain?

God then told the world this was one of the finest creations; that it was meant to change the world! When everyone came to know of this they thronged to see what special power this tiny creation of God can hold and realized soon that it had none at all. Surely it would perish in a world that was not meant for those with a tender heart.

Oktoberfest 2008

I think the name spells Beer to millions of people around the world, but to a traditional Bavarian it is more of a way of having good fun (of course coupled with beer)!

The Eternal Quest

And here I lie
Trapped in ethereal waters
Of joy and sorrow,
Of ecstasy and pain,
Of life and death!
