Kavyakankshini...bewitching words spun with spindles of thought and quicksilver yarn...: 2014


Passion like fireflies

Passion like fireflies
Flitting here n there
Glowing brightly in the deep forests of desire
Just on and off
Passion graceful as ever
As deer in the valley
Darting forth with quivering anxiety
Eager to touch the tenderness yonder
The night aglow with melting warmth of our beings
The night cold as the pulse of the moon
The night full of pure melding joy
Two glowing lovers
Tender by the touch, aglow with passion
Meeting, mating in the deep forests of desire...
Fireflies resting at dawn...
All faint dreamy and still glowing...



On the dark stony rock of solitude
I want to carve out a headless sphinx
Sheer dormant power
Wings etched in stone
Waiting to take off to an unknown
where its sightless eyes cannot see
Dust, air, rain
Tears, sweat, pain
Nothing affects him
The headless mammoth sphinx
Drawn out and frozen claws
Scratched on the wasted land
There he stands in
All majestic headless
Magical glory....
