Two Poems


Woohooo! I cannot help but hoot in joy! This is a first for the eccentric rambler, who randomly runs away with the words burgeoning, and wonders how they wove themselves so 🙂 , to have her verse published online 🙂 Thank you Cafe Dissensus for accepting and publishing these in your blogl! Phew! So there we are!!!

Cafe Dissensus Everyday

By Usha Pisharody 


Poetry. Such tremulous
Sheer evocative tingling poetry
Comes to me
Inside closed eyes,
Etchings on the inner lid,
Trailing out of fingertips
Itching to be written.

The self is but a conduit;
The source is not within
But in the gossamer threads
That weave themselves into
Pretty magical winged words.
I know it’s useless to
Capture them on paper,
Onto a screen here.

They’re there, those poems,

Into such images and metaphors
Have left their searing touch
Under my skin…
Only to disappear, when eyes open.

  2. ‘Keep calm and write poetry’ says her poster
    Then she takes us on a roller coaster
    From words she winkles
    A poem that twinkles
    And another published makes her a coy boaster!


Thank you for reading. Do stop a while and write in too... :)
