Life
Ashwin Atre

I run from fright,
from failure, the unfamiliar.
I run from life, running faster
as each day passes,
fatigued,
but from what…
From nothing…
and…
still…
I run
because this run,
this is Life.


Science
Ashwin Atre

I open the physics book,
Read the problem,
And I fall.
A perfect sphere, a perfect cliff beside me,
Abiding by the precise formulas that apply to all.

Defying some of the simplest concepts,
The sphere and I bound by some unknown
Meet the ground in a textbook moment.
I know gravity, but
We do not bounce.

In an ideal dimension, I know all,
There is an explanation
But why?
What is a ruler’s purpose?

With the ability to appreciate
To touch
To sense
To understand a sunset.

My Love
Ashwin Atre

She glistens,
the midday sun
shining brilliantly
upon her crown.
There she rests,
on the edge
of the pool,
patiently awaiting
my arrival.
Pshhhh.
Ahh, her whisper beckons,
I draw her closer.
As I gently embrace
her elegant figure
I can feel the perspiration
dripping down her sides.
Finally touching her
mouth to mine,
a sense of refreshment
overwhelms me.
