Woman

candle’s tireless flame
burns to stub
in melting wax
staying lit
when darkness calls

  • Woman by Neetu

    candle’s tireless flame
    burns to stub

  • Epiphany by Neetu

    into this moment
    I fall

    weightless in a space
    no ground
    no walls

    oblivious
    to past or future

  • Wendell Eugene: A Night to Remember by Neetu

    Wendell Eugene: A Night to Remember ~ by Neetu ~
    Rain drops drizzled
    from the night sky,
    café lights twinkled
    in dream-lit New Orleans

  • Snow Angel by Neetu

    I shaped you in the snow
    the last time it descended
    from the misty sky above

  • Between the Lines by Neetu

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