Treasure Island

Kesav Venkat Easwaran

(June 5th / Palghat- Kerala- India)

A Flower In Disguise…

Filling the air around
Sublime a fragrance strikes!
Alluring sweet ’n soft
This soothing smell arrives
My sense rears to find
From where this feel derives
But fails to place the source
Who sends this scent divine?

Oh! Dear! I now hear
Arousing words yours,
Passion honey to share
Profound burning fire;
Before the sleepless night
Disheartened goes tired,
It’s your flower
Inviting me to there!

    This is clever and also very sweet. Any flower would be proud to have this written in its honor, I might add. (smile) (Report) Reply

    Who could this truly be?
    Sublime and fancy free?
    Alluring sweet and soft
    Your sense to soar aloft?
    So may the fire burn
    As sleepless should you turn
    Aroused in passion's fire
    Disguised but causing ire
    (I pray that this be a fitting tribute to your outstanding love potion) (Report) Reply

    Elusive is the is the allusion attached to it. Sometimes the aura surrounding the mystery is far more alluring than flesh and blood described by you (or not) . Such is the power of illusion! !
    Keep on loving, Kesav..

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
