Tanned

Flat-chest, I was catwalking down the aisle on a brand-new fashion street, Discriminated thy bruised and fatigued tissues, Alas! Homecoming with shoe-bite feet. “Mama” said she, my five years old Cameroon Baby Abidemi, Recalling her birth-day, a female wail off-spring, shadow-less beneath her fatherly tree in late eighties, Solitude blue night, my chilled bones burdened …

Madame Barbossa

Sybarite lady, Madame Barbossa catwalks holding a glass of red wine. The gala stops as all men’s eyes laid on her cleavage line. Gracious fake smile, perfect hairdo, cosmetic face and little white lies, She wished to be rescued by a gentleman of faith and divine. Prince Charming walks in, bravehearted, stare straight into her …

Silent Bravehearts

Ruchi Acharya-Silent Bravehearts The midnight scars tell tales of all! Of courageous, bravehearted, polished, mighty heroes they call. Stalwarts marched forward pounding boots on the ground More tanks,  More gunners, More men, All down. Whistling bullets hits on the torso of noble-spirited, Marrow freezes, tank sneezes; festering with hatred we drifted. Invincible fires, fired the …

Seasons go by

  Summer, spring and winter go by But time stood still, no reason why? Embrace yourself, yet worst to come Dew drops along with morning bees hum, Two pieces of a broken heart falls; The following afternoon, a cuckoo’s calls Tweeters tweets, love birds meets If one dies the other dies, a curse Felony bagpipers …

Long wait walls never fall

Tonight twain interlaced fingers across Wrapped in winter blanket with embraced warmth Wind swirls along with Maple around, Death sleeps at peace beneath the ground October heart breaks due to long distance emboss.

Long distant call

Forlorn room walls speaks of all, Silent Rosaline died before the fall. Driveways remind late night’s crawls. Cosmetic face rusted like a dusty doll. “Here goes my long distant call.” We planted seed, solitude wrath upon its breed. Bruised, storm, break-ups, fall; but always stood still. Great Lord! Time heals, enables wounds thy sealed. My …

I make summer stay

Ruchi Acharya “Of all the ways, I make summer stay”, Sings the poppy flakes. Amidst the cuckoo’s vocal breaks. Rear field whereabouts potatoes sprouts, A campfire set by school kids scouts. Small bird twitter; Peacock glitter. Tulips withered; Brown horses untethered. In reddish hue Maple woods drest alike Summer stays amid longer days and shorter …

Sandy Footprints

MAHABALIPURAM: Taking a print, Leaving a print by Ruchi Acharya “The sea was ornamental blue starving the beachgoers to their endless desire. I remember how long I stood there in the humid light of Sun, tanning my skin until I satisfied myself completely. I was staring at the sea waves, it seems like melodious wave was …

Lady Love

The pain craved in one’s heart. Ramshackle, tackled into two pieces apart. Lady love sings, “My love has gone too far, Outreach from me into indistinct stars. There’s essence of love engraved in your soul. To me love songs, ballads and sonnets’ consoles. Eyes can still find him. In the depth of my dreams. Intellect …
