Treasure Island

krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

(1964 and doing pretty good.. / Thiruvalla, Kerala)

And I remember that night........


And I remember the night
We walked or rather I walked you
Under a shared umbrella
In pouring rain and street lamps
Pouring shafts of shower lights
Into blazing puddles of water
Into which we stepped carelessly
Hot shoulders touching, rubbing
Wet clothes, wet skins
Not talking and yet conversing
As man and woman does
When they walk as such
In the darkening night
A night of such pouring rain
With street lamps pouring lights
And not defining what each feels
Yet experiencing beyond mere words
Things all can feel in hot shoulders
Rubbing each other in the darkening night
A night of pouring rain and pouring lights............

    A beautiful shower of light and rain and unspoken love or is it desire, the lines so thin between them. I wonder if men and women do would sound better than as man and woman does, to keep it in the past tense. However it's your poem so for you to decide but a very enjoyable write. 10/10 BB: O) (Report) Reply

    The stage so beautifully set
    For two souls ignited in passion to meet
    Allowing the readers scope
    To guess the chance of an elope....(Ha! Ha!)

    Enjoyed this beautiful shower! ! (Report) Reply

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.
