love


When the lovely night embraces me in a deep sensous
pleasure
I watch the jasmine gets jealous green
she sheds a beautiful sensual fragrance around the thin air
gives me a perfect smile
just then the moon sheds her true love on the jasmine
her beams start kissing every soft lips of the petals
yet the jasmine takes her lovely face away from the moon
I see her getting jealous greener
and I can not help thinking about love again
that love is so stunningly a betrayer
a green insect eating the petals of a love flower
and then start forgetting the sensous night
the green jealous jasmine
the poor moon

My heart is now filled with the true love!

    ‘…I watch the jasmine gets jealous green…’

    Imagery candid and splendid…but poetic twist at end….melancholy and it is poetically profound....

    Hey Shamik...I really loved this poem...So beautifully you've tackled the notion of love...and in that way few facts about love have been unfathomed.... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
