A Thing Of Beauty - Poem by sathya narayana

Staring at nothing
In a dreamy distrait
When she started humming
Her mesmerizing lilt
How many hearts went distraught?

Her eyes like deep ocean blues
Treasure how many lovely clues
Wooing many a craving beau

When she laughed in rejoice
As if stars are showering from skies
Soaked are the relishing Romeos
In an inexplicable rapturous glow

Flaunted is the avenue she ambled
With beauty-battered machismos
Holding their bleeding hearts
Falling one after another at her feet
On their enfeebled knees
Yielding to her stealing allure

God must have strained for eons
To shape this beautiful woman
Few minutes with her I spent
Years after, I still sense her scent
Like an enshrouding bouquet
Whenever I felt my times difficult
She usurped into my thoughts
Like a swirling rivulet
Washing away every hurting gloomy dirt

Sathya…..

    Poet John Keats wrote, 'A thing of beauty is joy for ever.' So, anything beautiful keeps one happy and gay, no doubt in it. (Report) Reply
