A Fantasy

Dozing on a hammock
Strung between two towering pines
With the sky above-
colour washed in turquoise blue
and the waters below
reflecting that heavenly hue,
you came to me
sailing in a dream
like the strains of a symphony
causing endless vibrations
in my solitary heart

you showed up
all too sudden
like a rainbow on my vacant sky
after a cloud burst of cloistered grief
to blaze it with iridescent shades

Your smile
embalmed my bruised spirit
with the coolness of a summer drizzle
falling, like manna
over starved Israelites
in their arduous odyssey
through blistering sands

Your passionate breath,
spewed on my face
bore the scent of opening buds
in the mazy tangle of wild creepers
growing dense in nearby woods.

Your amorous whispers
fell in my ears
*with the sweetness of the melody
from Krishna's flute
with Radha near, love sick
her lips curled in an immaculate smile.

Your soft footsteps
like the jingle of a court dancer
echoed in the silence of my soul
with a hundred evocations

As the jingles
came nearer in synchronizing rhythm
I held out my arms
to clasp you in tight embrace
and reel you in frenzied jig

But you vanished,
with the swiftness
of bubbles rising and breaking
in a beer glass,
leaving me to my desolate zone

The sky overhead had changed
into another shade

Still I lay in mid air,
with my eyes sealed tight
to re-live that dream
once again!

    Breathtaking! Complex. Delicate. precise imaging & cadence. subtle, jarring. masterful weaving. just the first impressions of a drop-in.

    A fantastic poem about fantasy- -The romance of Radha and Krishna is well imagined and rendered.!

  • Neela Nath (11/12/2012 10:29:00 PM)

    Radha and Krishna are according to Indian philosophy, Prakiti and Purush, Atma and Paramatma. Radha's love for Krishna is meant to be one with Paramatma. Very nice maam.

    Romantically piece of fascinating

    I know nothin about Radhika and Krishna in the Hinduism.but i searched a little about it.what i learn from it, is that Radha was Krishna's lover or as it is written Atma Tu Radhika Tasya which u know the meaning better than me.
    I believe that we can learn alot from their love and relationship.the impression that a lover could have on his/her mate.Their relationship or the impressions on their eachother's minds.
    In our tradition poetry we have the same poems and the stories about lovers like (Shirin and Farhad) or (Lyla and Majnoon) .
    I learned alot from this poem.\\\\Muchas gracias for sharing
