Treasure Island

indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

hey...spring again!

the veil of fog
gets thinner and thinner
the seasonal flowers
lose their color
as the sun's chariot
gets rolled as it should
the koel fills the ears
with its cooing fed on
the tender mango-flower
that renders more sweetness
to a voice already sweeter
every vegetation begins to breathe
resurrecting life once again

after sluggish winter
birds chirp
bees buzz
hearts long
as spring slowly unfolds
its drama of desire
once again...!

    Lovely spring imagery from halfway around the world.
    Here small daffodils are struggling to lift
    their fragile blooms above the snow. But
    sometimes there is great strength in
    fragility.10++ for you.

    Beautiful! I really like the way you try to entice the seasonal change with the 'koel fills the ears with its cooing' and 'every vegetation begins to breathe/resurrecting life once again'. Rich imagery bringing spring to life.
    Enjoy the read.
    Thnx for sharing.
