Ephemeral : A poem

I could only sit and watch
The night as it slowly pass
Moon blinked away so fast
Am I caged or free at last?

I could never utter truth
Wishes buried under roots
Trees are branched up to roofs
Few are weak, never sure their foot

Proud or crying out in pain
I watch as everything fade
Stars and moon all away
Tears dripped and appear a way

Way to nowhere, sure it was
Wondering whether to lose or grasp
Threads are fragile and lies are plans
Moon disappear, slowly the stars

A new morning : A poem

A shade of gray in the sky
“Morning coming,” says a cry
Darkness lifts as moon says bye
Light showers at right time

Sun is in an orange hue
Sky is no longer the darkest blue
Trees are lit and birds they sing
Then fly over high with little wings

Light spreads slow and slow
Chirping of birds heard loud and low
Sun now shine up in the sky
It’s morning, open your lazy eyes

Morning is bright and free
I look at the sky and feel the breeze
Sorrows are old while love is seen
A day of mystery, calls for me

Even the darkest night will end and the Sun will rise.

– Victor Hugo

Prologue: A poem

Hundred people in the room
My face holding all the gloom
Withered flowers was once a bloom
Aching, shaking misery loomed

Windows held brilliant views
Clocks ran as time went soon 
Faces held in smiles and hues
I lost music dancing to their tune

People, people all around
Nobody came to make a sound
I was from the other town
They whispered but all aloud

I was there but nobody could see
Standing by the wall was little me
Laugh and play, sway in the tree
Fly away soon, while in the breeze

Rainy Day: A poem

I went on a walk a rainy day
A hundred memories came to play 
I asked the rain to stay with me
As I drowned myself in a past unseen

An old path lay infront of me
I slowly walked like through a sea
I stretched my arms to catch the breeze
An unforgettable memory this would be

I painted pictures in the rainy sand
No bystanders there to watch
I smiled at myself and then the land
Waters splashed down from my hand

I then walked back to my tent
As it was the home I now dwelled
I went back through the rainy bends
A joyful memory in my head

Beyond and forever I would say
And remember about this rainy day
When rainy waters failed to stay
Anywhere but in my heart it still lay

Far away lands: A poem

With wet feet I would run down the stairs
My footsteps echoes in the hall
Then I would disappear, fast and fair
I won’t listen to their calls

Past the buildings lined with misery
A bullet staring at the heart
I would compose a contrast elegy
Away and away, I would then float

I would run to that moddish meadow
And grasslands standing there tall
I would never return to that old willow
To joys and sorrows small

Here I would leave people far behind
A hidden rock in the banks
I would put in my pocket there to remind
My past falling through the cracks

Rhymes to the sky I would sing
Then a lullaby one for the sad
Then to the broken branches I cling
Away I would go to far away lands

– Jan @jahnavigouri

Mystery: A poem

Nostalgia drummed, memories old
Heart intese, a piano song
Radio played a tune unknown
People today, ancient towns

History recited, kings and queens
An old civilization, not to be seen
Today’s and tomorrow’s, falling leaves
Miracles hung above bending trees

I read through verses of joy and pain
They walk me down a historical lane
Many many truths walking unpaid
Old sayings become my guide

Wings wounded fly above the sky
Stories alive inside every mind
Scars surfaced in tales erased by time
They walk on mysteries, no one to find

– Jan @jahnavigouri

Blue as dusk: A poem

Eyes twinkle, stolen glitter
I wonder, they chat
Speak now and ask never
Teach them not to start

Hands together hold water
As they slip through, the crack
Mirrors fall and they shatter
Bruises in painted gaps

Ink stains and lost meadows
Endangered little hearts
Lost diaries, dark pirates
Ships sank, waters sad

Howling winds, copper breeze
Heart hollow, sadness freeze
Goodness came, I can’t release
Lone as ocean and dusk, my tea

Sun in brown, moon in blue
Nature gave its charm to you
Yellow silk, pretty hue
Happy times would arrive soon

– Jan @jahnavigouri

By the window: A poem

Moon in my window
I can see that you’re watching me
Soon by my willow
I can hear your voice in the sea

Thousand miles we go
It is not that old little me
Million memories grow
In bend and forgotten trees

Ancient rhythms sow
A tale so old to preach
My mind it sings low
For a nameless land I reach

I see my window
It stands miles away from me
My old bend willow
Your thoughts drown now in my sea

-Jan @jahnavigouri

Golden Cage: A Poem

I asked for pebbles as I fell to the sand
Wickedness exploding in a kind looking hand
I walked away from my one and only land
Loneliness has now become my magic wand

Sky is dark as the night came by
Stars twinkled as my mind asked why
Dungeon of sadness, foolish I
Misery, misery I could never say bye

A land of happiness awaits me
A way to get there I don’t seem to see
Monsters of dark is now clutching to me
I always fail when I try to flee

Once kind people have turned distant now
Smile with a cost, I don’t know how
Distant is good and came fragile love
Fly away, fly away my precious dove

I have waited for something meant to be
Bonded in a golden cage, I tried to flee
A new path opened but just not lovely to me
As it was not the path, I have waited all my life to see
