The Brothers Karamazov (Recommended Reads)

Recommended Reads The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky My rating: 5 of 5 stars I have often found it hard to focus through and complete a large novel. The Brothers Karamazov is probably the longest one I have read – and what a terrific one it is! Taking nearly year of on-off reading, this set…

Self check (Poem)

They warned of the dangers of a self-check, To realise how I may dispense hate Or how my labelling of others Can irritate their stay As I cash in the cheque of self, Signed by the soul I tried to bargain with, Playback my Dictaphone of record sales, I can hear my own heart hardening…

Layers of being (Poem)

Aesthetics of covering cosmetics can keep appeal, as I’ve yet to be peeled Chopped or diced, from farmers market to exposed in the basket, for I’m not like others more fruitful.   Banana skins protect their sweetness, and citrus sits to rest on tongues, Yet I speak from different scales, enveloping the bitterness to soak…

Practice what you preach (Poem)

It seems for many of us we are enslaved to engaging in debates reflecting on our helpless case as we negate and abrogate.   Though most the time its hard to say whose are who’s views, glued to news frames that are framed around tricks, and fabricate to induce manic, and panicked states   Yet rather…

When senses regained (Poem)

Vice – coveter of lenses. Our pre-tense Overlay with pretences We pretended… Preoccupied As then recommended.   Now we look on post sense of tension we mention, post-interventions and we post the question… how else it could have ended.   Epidemic of fever, caught diseases no caution and heedless, yet talk of treatments how frequently, we…

My-oh-genic (Poem)

Once solitude in this treasure chest Yet from all directions now – scathed and torn Be it sleeve or breast, for you to rest.. I contest, where best you are worn. Is it in the fields of ethnicity and predecessors? Or do the lands of your birth hold the throne? Volcanic eruptions burn victim and…

Preyer (Poem)

First time in decades, they rose to their feet, Realising where their hope lay, conceding defeat, A great feat, how successive pitfalls had led to this moment, Now no more doors to open, the light inside had shown them, Standing in front of their Lord, while time had been so generous, Submitting to His splendour,…

All and nothing (Poem)

Possibilities beyond quantification, In a paradox of paralysing limitations, Beneath endless skies and horizons, We are but specs among specs.   Yet we are planets amidst planets, Solar systems within our anatomy, Lustful appetites left us famished, Vivid dreamers in a phantom sleep.   How bittersweet this reality, Teaches love and taunts with anguish, Where…
