Hewing meadow conjoined the shadowy stars

Thick shade of the gloomy moon erected a tent of content

Bedroom of abyss birthed the running lines of brightening bay

Three legged lightning rent the haughty garment of welkin

Early mountain dew offered obeisance to the smoky winged chariot.

Face of the deep mirrors irregularities lingering on sunset

Blind illumination weakened thrilling dianthus of decorated valley

Shackles of wind wriggles over the perforated mislaid musing map

Broken walls failed to retrieve the consciousness of the muddy alcove

Mosquitoes of ages betrayed the busy blood of many toiling workers.


I will walk pleasurably on the broken thorns of many branches

I will sit on the mocking hills that birthed and nurtured ignorance

I will chop down the giant tree obstructing at the center of T-junction

I will incinerate the dancing masquerade racing furiously with hungry cow

I will bury undertakers of desperation and mothers of forlorn hopes.


Uncovered hands to pluck the ripe oranges among thirsty bees

Wounded purloiner to unnoticeably snatched entrance from gunner

Featherless flamingo to crawl through the higher crystal canopy

Ageless mushroom to untie the wanting gypsy in the scorching sun

Sharpened pencil to sketch the moving shadow of the singing dragon.


Knock vigorously on the doors of brass and windows of iron

Discern the warnings of the sonorous messages of nightingale

Lioness can be send on errand across the taming streets of trust

Handpicked the radiant keys from gutters to unlock the treasure

Carpenters of coffin should measure the height of mulish corpse.


Dead stone will resurrect as the blazing diamond of many colours

Lushness will hold a meeting with comfort in the compound of rainbow

Apotheosis of bitter strength sediments in the rushing mighty waters

Echoes of faithful digging passes through the hidden drums of denizens

On this narrow path will hang the dark garments of these chameleons.
