Refulgent Eyes

There is dance in your brown eyes today-
wonder what music they see.
Bounce, and sparkle, and my heart they slay.
Pure, unfazed, and far beyond can gaze, untraced.
But when their colours fade, I tingle,
and deep down tears blur me.
Would an ice cream bring back that twinkle?

A Dog Called Scotch

A stray dog dozed outside a palace
of a king unmatched in fame-
unaware of fate that blessed His Grace.
People thronged all day long, Scotch merrily yawned.
Events transpire within four walls-
wild, and if known, would defame.
Scotch blinks, shakes his head and lolls.
