Treasure Island

ANJALI SINHA


* FOR YOUR EYES ONLY **


Shalom, shalom, my beloved
For your eyes only
Did I not traverse this far…
Crossing the mirage towards oasis
Through cobbled dark blithering dreary alleys
But with the scent of the jasmine in your love
I could fight with coup de grace, all those omnivorous sorrows
Sweep away those cobwebs of onerous burdens
And now be able to wipe the dews
On the rose of my cheek

Shalom, shalom, my beloved
For your eyes only
See what I will do…….
Among the chenille petals in the pimpernel of your love
Let me add my own among them
So that when you caress the chervil bouquet
The chartreuse will break the silence
And then my heart will be one with your estoteric fragrance

Shalom, shalom, my beloved
For your eyes only
This is what I wish…….
In the cosmogony of the numberless stars
I wannabe that lantern of ethereal light
The dazzling one among the brightest
So that, in the dance of the festival of lights
My heart will swing with enrapturous delight
And my life will be one, with your panoramic smile.

    What a timeless beauty this poem contains, that anyone at any period of time can borrow from you the style of expressions and the claims that bear the self confidence... (Report) Reply

    Fantastic poem Anjali. I wannabe that lantern of ethereal light
    You write so nicely. Eyes having so great attraction... but eyes are not here.
    It is the eye of the mind.Your sensuousness reaches a height in your sublime expressions. I only felt that I was blind to see your talent.. (Report) Reply
