You Idiot!!

I stood in front of the mirror looking at myself. I had my beard all grown up, and kept looking at myself continuously for a while. Then a faint smile rose from the corner of my lips and I asked myself ,”Why do I look like an idiot?”. Then I replied back to my reflection in mirror… Because you are one, you dumbass…and then I started laughing…

 

Such silly incidents are part and parcel of my life. However bad the day might me, I try to find my moment of Zen one way or another (that includes acting like an idiot, or maybe being one. Am I?).

Poems & Me

Every poem I write
A piece of me goes
Into the unknown
In your mind.

My imagery, my thoughts
Inspired by the world
Created by words
Connecting the dots.

At times I’m on fire
Words and syllables
Flow unabrupt
Mind doesn’t tire.
