Treasure Island

Kesav Venkat Easwaran

(June 5th / Palghat- Kerala- India)

A Budding Bloom…

Dear me! You wax and wane
Akin to moon
Display a crescent to full
Differ lovingly day by day...
A no-moon day too gives
The longing to watch
A nascent frill on sky next day...

    This poem is like comparing a woman at an unsure stage of her life to the moon and how she reacts in showing her phases (faces), beautifully written. Thanks, mandara (Report) Reply

    The moon represents the depth of our subconscious and shows how we express our emotions and nurturing skills, and it is the feminine side of our nature. And she can be quite fickle as your poem creatively shows. Interesting work.... Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    yes i'm afraid so.............the female of the species, being as we are affected by all of that in a tidal fashion (Report) Reply

    That's a good baby song...a little baby or your beloved one...Listen to Elvis Presley's 'Moody Blues'...regarding the missus.
    As for the little baby, you can croon your lovely poem as a lullaby..

    a budding bloom teaches the magnificient use of imagery, simply an exquisite vision that emitts all flesh and blood.....the real zest, the endless passion of mankind...the never ending and unquenched thirst of love..........sweeeeeeeeeeet

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
