Wonderland

First Published in the VIsual Verse 5th Vol6 Chapter 01

A collage,

a mish-mash of the talent brimming

from every corner and crevice of the world

the congregation,

coming together

and scattering like

a white light from the prism

sacred mouths speaking in the

unborn tongues

the surreal poetry,

language unknown

but piercing hearts and souls

 

A potpourri of emotions,

a litany of worries and angst written across our faces

still singing songs of beauty

of diversity,

of pain,

of hunger,

this arresting beauty spreads

everywhere through words

the absence of pain

hides the indifference

 

This diaspora,

a confederacy of poetic hearts

this ebb of flow of thoughts and opinions

flows unrestricted

thoughts always forming

slowly and surely

like the old dilapidated warehouse

ongoing a facelift

a construction,

rebuilding our future from the

broken and crumbled past

we rise through our pain.

 

This serendipitous convergence

of our aberrant thoughts

rising in our sullen minds

pain is carved out of our

discordant bodies and mind

when our beautiful verses

are our vehicle

to carry the cavalcade of our

resplendent thoughts

bridging the gap

spreading the light

 

This patchwork of the

surreal beauty

molded and morphed out of our hope

cradled in our trembling hands

an alchemy of breath into expression

holding the ink of the forgotten city

we slowly create

our lost wonderland.
