Update

I have not written here for a long time.

I have been thinking about what to do with this blog. While I like the content and the visitors this blog has accumulated so far, I feel as if I have out-grown it, somehow.

I either want to take this blog in a different direction, or stop using this space altogether. I want to blog more about some of my readings, and my different thought processes on more serious topics.

The other problem is that I no longer like the Blogger platform. The technology is just too outdated for me to enjoy using it. I might move the entire blog and all of the content to Wordpress, or some other platform (the logistics of doing that is too much for me to think about right now).

Antarctica

30 Day Poetry Challenge Day 15
Prompt: snow deeper than thoughts


Beneath this one mile
thicket of snow
an entire life stream
of beautiful bacteria
and frozen starfish
reside.

The streams of salt
stab at every corner
until all creatures
are asleep and dead.

Beyond my understanding
dwells a plethora
of magnificence.

Comeuppance

30 Day Poetry Challenge Day 14
Prompt: trickle down


The jaundiced eye
opens and closes
and sets its gaze
upon the world.

Yet a trickle of tears
rolls out of the corner
and settles on the cheeks.

Each inch
of names and numbers
a universe of lives.

Foreign

30 Day Poetry Challenge Day 12
Prompt: subliminal subluxation


 Angrez.

It is not a corruption
but an improvement.

Who has the time
to pronounce
Anglais
in an uppity accent?

Dustbin Man

30 Day Poetry Challenge Day 10
Prompt: windshield wipers


How nice
to see a desolate man,
a deprived, shanty man
wake up in the morning dew,
in the soft shadow
of a municipal dustbin.
