With bare honed teeth-comb of serenity
I brush long wavy hair of intentions and chances
Brambly is hair of my circumstances
Knotted in places where I’ve missed incisive combing
Splitted on ends are coincidences
As a taunt for a lack of calling
Broken wishes
Barred to ever see light of sun-lay mangled in canine brush-bite of destiny
I roll them in a ball to floor
Resolute with hope the sable mane grows
I gel long inky tenacity of curly hankerings
With balmy calmness of jasmine
Gently braid stray chances, wasted intentions, washed clean coincidences
Tie them delicately with hair-tie of content
Close my eyes to grace of a new day
That’ll bring yet another set of tangled happenstances
With a grooming brush of becoming-
I’ll once again tame fresh set of dreams and musings
And learn the art to-
Just ‘Be’

MasticadoresUSA features talented writers of poetry and short prose. We primarily publish writers who write in English, and are based in the USA. However, while the publication language remains English, we also welcome the work of our fellow writers from all over the world.

What do we want to bring to our readers? Edgar Allan Poe once wrote: Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. This is what we are committed to bringing to you. And that’s not an easy endeavor.

In addition to the piece(s), you want to have published, we need your name, and the address of your site. Submit your work as a docx attachment – not in the body of the email.

  1. Sarika, you have woven an intricate metaphor in your sable hair..I love how you brushed and groomed all those broken wishes, and brambles of Life and tied it all up to live…until the next brushing is needed..Love the image of “Barred to ever see light of sun-lay mangled in canine brush-bite of destiny
    I roll them in a ball to floor”
    Your lines and your adjectives are surprising and fresh.. which has given such a unique over- all feeling to your poem!

    I love this I am under a dryer at a salon and I know this is metaphorically written but I was smiling.
