"Ask the moon"


"Ask the moon"


Over the hills and deep valleys


flowing between the clouds


and floating in the


savory eyes of lake


a silent little lonely peice of moon


wrapped in sparkle of twinkling stars


constantly moves around


between day and night


how it feels to live in solitude


Ask the moon......

Words have begged



'Words have begged "

Sitting on the surface of paper

words have begged

from the Emotion to suffer

Distracted mind is helpless

Waiting scattered

and talking about past moments..

Memories out of the corridor

incomplete desires are

raining rediculasly

evening of Beauty

Washed aside by flying

Agile dust crossing the circles to

to take away days shine.....

"Remember still come"

"Remember still come"

Picture marks on the soul of heart
will go to bleak sudden
but Remember still come
Crying laughing singing song
Furnishing of melody tones
you will Take the word rhythm
but Remember still come
lonely path, holding the walk
together spent time swindle
All will vacant
but Remember still come
head on shoulder and ring of touch
on the face of night the moon wreath
Everything will be isolated
but Remember still come

'Valley of words '

In the Valley of words
These swirling mind,
Looking for some particles
which can express with dignity
beautiful anthem of love,
Hidden ambition of life
Suppressed curiosity in the eyes
Static language of silence,
In terms of the litigants
These swirling mind,
Looking for ......

Writing passion


Writing passion

On the bright tail of the lake
Contribution from the bright rays
I put part of the writing passion
holding my loves finger
Hiding from the world's eyes
I hav to go flying across the sky
with stars filled in my hands
flowing in your love ocean
wanna go deep down high
When you step down gently
in deep water of the lake
go quietly tocuhing your lips
These spry waves falling shy
