Dear Poet Me

Dear Poet Me

A Poem by Balkaran Sidhu

Dear poet, within me
Do not lose tomorrow’s eyes
Don’t churn too much beneath
Your stranger skies,
tides of love and loss

Re-rise to explore
the crystal colored honesty in you
You who was carved out of the sun
made out of the water tipped stones
With slack markings for your
typhlotic guests
Let them come and let them go

Dear poet me, Do not look for beauty
In every chunk of time
linear, like a flat circle
Don’t harvest beauty behemothic
That this world looks grisly

Don’t mine secrets so abstract
That shift as bright as a light-bolt
The crest calls for you
The epilogue remains hidden in your Heart

You have been hiding for long now
In your timid memory of love
The one whom I can only know
In your writing, whose volume is limitless

Ancient with yearning, dear poet
Priest of the ocular Word
Unfolding floating islands of light
Don’t weep with the calligraphy
Of the daunting night.

Welcome the present with a Farewell
A farewell too heavy to catalog
Sip the past for new amazement
That must borne out of other minds

Dear poet me, your heart is the bridge
that links the ever churning heartbeat
of a true lover, like your
Incandescent subtlety of naked whispers
That renew our intricate psyche.

We must all write to the writer within sometimes, to stop it being a slave to the muse...
