About My Love

Sitting with a bunch of friends
Each one is talking about love
And saying about their own love
One among them turned to me
And asked me about my love

Asked me, who is my love?
One asked, how she looks?
Other one, what she does?
And other, where is she?
Tell us about her, they said

I looked at each ones face
With arched eyebrows on my face
And said, who is my love?
I am not sure about that
But this is how she is

She may be elder than me
She may be younger than me
Or she may be of my age
What ever may be her age?
She is as wise as old

She may be too fat
She may be very short
She may be even black
How ever she may look?
She is gorgeous to me

She may be uneducated
She may be unemployed
She may be very poor
What ever she may be?
She is rich at her heart

She may be blind
She may be dumb
She may be deaf
What ever it may be?
She can sense my heart beat

My relations may leave me
My friends may leave me
My blood may leave me
Everyone may leave me, but
She will always hug me

I may know her or not
I have seen her or not
I have met her or not
She is with me or not
This is what my love is

I said and left with tears.

    ‘…She may be blind
    She may be dumb
    She may be deaf
    What ever it may be?
    She can sense my heart beat…’

    It’s the bottomline of whole poem…and your humaneness sparkling thro’ it…because you’re a Poet

    Kranthi, ah, you are a man of enormous generosity, tenderness, respect, acceptance and love. Your words declare that love is not governed by 'have gots', but that it is the essence, the spirit, the connection with nature and life, real life, that attracts you to a woman. What is within her, what she radiates and what she shares with those around her in a healing, loving manner is important. You are quite a gentleman! ! ! May all your dreams come true.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
