Illustration Friday ...."Jump"

An Ode to
The Ancient Martial Art of Kalaripayattu 
of South India

A twist, a turn, a lightening sword,
A Rhythmic jump, swift to fall,
Leaping as a leopard, ready to fly
To touch the clouds, to reach the sky.

Illustration Friday..."Heights"


From the jagged heights of the majestic Himalayas
To the depths of serenity ....walk silently
... walk alone.

Illustration Friday....."Puzzled"


I climb the spiral staircase, one step at a time,
I seem to walk in circles, morning, noon and night.

Nothing ever changes, yet nothing is the same,
So subtle are my footsteps, yet I falter again.

Peaceful is the tread, slippery is the edge,
With laughter and joy, or despair sharp as a knife,

Every step leaves me puzzled,
On the spiral staircase of life.

Illustration Friday...."Vocal"

Voices Unknown

In a room I sit alone,
In the company of voices unknown,
Whispers that seem so loud, so vocal,
Exploding in my head, so real so soulful.

A haze of figures float by,
Whirling, talking as they fly,
Shapes that melt, faces that endure,
I see them closely...the faces are my own.
