My tanka published on Scarlet Dragonfly Journal

 


February 26, 2024


foggy morning
choke humans and animals
icy darkness
around fire on the roadside
they smoke bidi with chai

NOISES published on the Edge of Humanity

 My poem NOISES appears on Edge of Humanity, 27 February 2024:


I can’t hear my self

their noises erase my world

choices are denied-

questions of being wound me

courage and strength fade away


noises mute my voice

distract us from the truth

crowns change with the wind

and they play chess with our lives


they feed us dust and potions

in their new temples

arouse their magic deities

make us yell loud

and hang us upside down.

My Poems in Chinese

My tanka poems appear in POLEART, No. 27, 2024

 





LOVE MOMENTS: A SNIPPET

While I sweat
in mosquito-net
waiting for a kiss
she goes to sleep
loosening her breasts and
removing her feet and eyes
and covers them under the sheet
for safe-keeping

***
between her coming
to bed and sleep
a burial of longing:
her indifference widens
even touch is a no

***
await setting of
burning sun and arrival
of night to go out
for a beer and chips to soothe
her hurt spirit in moon light

***

at the swimming pool
he asks if he could borrow
her underwear just
to feel her from inside
with fidgeting currents

***
while I enclose her
in my arms
to express my affection
she suspects
I’m going to devour her
with kisses
she pierces fingernails
into my innocence

***
unzipping her cleavage
he ransacks the shelf
for the safely-kept condom:
she whispers smilingly
try something new
innovation, you know
double-barreled gun!

***
softness dies
in his pressure
much pleasure
melting elements
feed the soul in flesh

***

call it spoof
or nirvana
if you like
hidden between thighs
is the spring music
beyond birth

--R.K.Singh

Published 'War in Gaza'

 


War In Gaza

Unchanged human nature

eternity passed with each prophet

spirit’s realms in rumbles…

how to search peace in depths of tunnels

through misery and degradation?

 

A sick generation

till elimination they won’t stop

for lasting peace they say they kill

unaware they too may become dust

in the catastrophe they have wrought.

 

Cursed Gaza awaits

a miracle to rise a new phoenix

to exist with Israel

despite the devil’s designs

for perpetual desolation.

Samo Kreutz translates my Haiku into Slovene

drowsy eyes
sun behind the clouds
dreams wrapped up

zaspane oči
sonce izza oblakov
ovito v sanje
