Between the Lines by Neetu

parallel lines

Between the Lines

a comma, a pause—
maybe even a full stop
heaves its way
between the lines

silence lingers to make
a statement, take
a breath, wait
between the lines

no words to complete
just      spaces       that speak
oceans           that flow
between the lines

Endurance by Neetu

Endurance

a feeble flame
does not illuminate
my path on this
dark night

I must stop
until day breaks
and shows me the road
that lies ahead

if there be one
in such dolorous times

Forsythia Blooms by Neetu Malik

Forsythia Blooms


We meet here again
but I am alone

shielded by forsythia
behind memories
forged and forgotten
in fields that have
seen snow and rain

lain desolate 
before seasons change
and drifting winds carry
sounds of birdsong
to end winter's silence.

We meet again but
I am alone

with golden bells that
chime your presence
as they rise from the earth
warm once more.

Yearning by Neetu

Yearning
 
I glisten in tears
like an April dawn,
 
covered in dew
like blades of grass,
 
whispering notes
like softly falling raindrops,
 
I call your name
like one who is lost –
 
listen achingly for the sound
of your answering call.

The Gardener by Neetu Malik

The Gardener

You water me 
that I may grow
lush and luxurious
 
you prune me
when my branches stray
too far out or too high
 
you mulch me when
you think I may
wilt or die
 
you nurture me as if
I’m too frail to stand
on my own
 
as if without you
I may fail to thrive
 
in truth, maybe it is you
who needs me,
to survive.
