swetha vankayalapati

As If

in streets of tears, darkness as trees,
in graves lie dreams, agony rustles
as there comes a serein,
thy always brought up a rosarin!

He sews gossamers of hues
with sun rays as needles,
on every rose leaf to another,
to bathe and flux in leaf greens!

'gliding gliding in pools of
rushing rushing on gossamers,
swirling swirling in honey,
not an interlude I land
here shaking hand with an ant,
touching backs of glow worms! '

By now tired, look up for delicious night;
He sits on the crescent moon
filling voids of hunger by music
of bloating stars at his finger tips!

Of no residence, every hook I rejoice
in conveyance, He use no corner to sermonize,
carry my senses through his sight
encircling distances despite!

in quiver, its warmth upto brims
rolling down as I breathe,
a mere time enclosed between
percolating water drops,
flapping wings.......
......only tears pure of joy
short for a while!

    The rich use of metaphor and a little simile created these unique original images. The repetition in the third stanza moves the poem along. It rise and falls magicaly like a story line, sure dreams do. Its a masterpiece! (Report) Reply

    Not easy to interpret fast but I see it as a wonderful voyage in the dreams of a person who is elevated from his suffering by daring to imagine wonderful things at the time of sunset, and who shares his flight of ideas with you.
    Even without understanding the true story behind the poem, it is a pleasure to read the wonderful images you paint in this surreal masterpiece. (Report) Reply

    Brilliant! Beautiful written, I could guess the huge happiness of one special moment of infinite unity. Those moments we feel one with the Universe. If my guess is correct, then I wonder have you written it out of memory or being in that state. Thank you for share, loved your poem! (Report) Reply

    Interesting language and very descriptive. Not familiar with serenin and rosarin and it may have assisted to define these words in the Notes section to enhance the readers understanding.  (Report) Reply

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
