Feather touch…….

 

 

My soul was in a slumber

Then you came and showered

Your fragrance through your kisses

And awakened me from my sleep…..

 

I am now imprisoned in a solitary

Cell, of your ardent love.

The heart yearns for looking out,

To see the vistas of green plush valleys;

Sylvan hills, where the nymphs roam;

The stream where the thousand suns

Envisions through bubbles and foams;

Where the green paddy fields ripple

In the breeze, and the lonely man angling

For a stray fish and sings his

Favorite lines, of a popular ballad;

Where, the one legged stork watch

The clouds wandering over the distant

Horizon, casting a shadow, over the

Dales. and the hills on its sojourn;

Where, the boatman sings a mournful lyric

And rows happily against the tide….

 

The rain splattering on the placid lake

Making tiny holes in the surface….

Where the rain drips through the leaves

Of the needle trees, in lustrous rivulets;

Where the urchins play and gleefully

Jump naked, into the murky pond.

 

Your soothing fingers caressing my nape

While you stand close, embracing me

Arouse me from these reveries of the

Long forgotten fantasies, suddenly

I realize, that all these are embedded

In your feather touch…………

Footprints on the sand…

 

 

Sitting on the window sill, I strained my ears

To hearken the voice of your treads.

I searched for your foot prints,

On the courtyard of my house, in the sand

The tinkle of your bangles rustling

Against your attire, was heard

Somewhere, through the air.

In my yearning to hear the soft music

Of your love, I heard the vailing of

A nightingale, singing to its mate.

I saw a shadow in the twilight

On the footpath, leading to my house.

Was that an apparition?

 

A thousand tidings, I wanted to tell you;

Soothing your love stricken heart;

Wiping, the crystal drops of tears in your eyes.

To enliven your insipid passions,

To take you away into the land of the rainbows,

Among, the wandering clouds, where the moon

Traverse leisurely among the stars.

There we will find our tenement

And live for ever and ever in our love.

 

 

A Hornbill…

My beloved! My sighs are cast as flowers in your path
Can’t you see? Where did you go?
Leaving ceaseless grief in my heart,
Without ever telling me?

The blooms of desires you showered in my memory,
The mute signs you conveyed through your eyes,
The songs of love you chanted for me…
All the pages of my mind is filled with those
Pictures, you painted with the brush dipped
In your eternal love, and your affection
Wrote the epics of love you endured…
The colours have faded and moldy.
My songs have become wingless flies;
My sky has turned into blackened dusk;
My tread are stumbling, I am groping
To find my goal.

Time, eternal time, on the wings of a chariot
Of four seasons, is passing away.
I still wait for you with a feeble hope
Of a hornbill for the rain in the summer.

Feathertouch…

My soul was in a slumber.
Then you came and showered
Your fragrance, through your kisses
And awakened me from my sleep…..

I am, now imprisoned in a solitary
Cell, of your ardent love.
The heart yearns for looking out
To see the vistas of green plush valleys;
Sylvan hills, where the nymphs roam;
The stream where the thousand suns
Envisions through bubbles and foams;
Where the green paddy fields ripple
In the breeze, and the lonely man angling
For a stray fish and sings his
Favorite lines, of a popular ballad;
Where, the one legged stork watch
The clouds wandering over the distant
Horizon, casting a shadow, over the
Dales. and the hills on its sojourn;
Where, the boatman sings a mournful lyric
And rows happily against the tide….

The rain splattering on the placid lake
Making tiny holes in the surface….
Where the rain drips through the leaves
Of the needle trees, in lustrous rivulets;
Where the urchins play, and gleefully
Jump naked, into the murky pond.

Your soothing fingers caressing my nape
While you stand close, embracing me
Arouse me from these reveries of the
Long forgotten fantasies; suddenly
I realize, that all these are embedded
In your feather touch…………
