Poem: Confined in freedom

How strange is the plight of humans, Who spend years in self-confinement, Convincing their reasoning mind to wait for eternity, Before relishing the imagined moment, Where happiness awaits in abundance. Multitude of such moments, They live in, unaware, Are moments like the ordinary, Where happiness seeks no yearning to readily bloom. - The Last Nomad

Poem: Q&A

In music, does the silence shape sound or sound shapes silence? In life, do the happenings shape us or we shape the happenings? Do questions seek answers or answers create questions? - The Last Nomad

Poem: Bloom

Vibrant flowers, Fall on the ground, As their sweet fragrance escapes into thin air, And intricate being becomes earth again. Memories we caress by framing their pictures, And reminiscing their scent, While the tree is ecstatic, With a thousand blooming buds. - The Last Nomad

Poem: Unsold art

Year after year, Staring at hundreds of paintings hung in decorated frames, Basking in the glamour of handsome patronage, He wondered what made people buy art, And why his paintings never found their rightful collector. Devoid of their thick coat of affluence, The art buyers were everything but interesting. All he dreamt of that night were empty frames, Hung on trees and burning bright. Startled, he rushed onto the streets in search of flaming trees, And all he found was a woman at the traffic signal, With a basketful of unsold earthen toys. - The Last Nomad

Poem: The empty act

No matter how concrete it all seems, You know every moment, When it nibbles into your being, That the act has always been empty. Then you wear the mask, And get onto the stage, To shine in the darkness, And sing the silent song. - The Last Nomad

Poem: In search of the elixir

Dragging his feet through the muck, He walked for miles, witnessing the maddening chaos. Noise, lights, blood and sweat, Toiling day and night, In search of the unknown elixir of joy. A drop of inner madness quenched his thirst, And the world seemed never better. - The Last Nomad
