Dr Tapan Kumar Pradhan

(October 22,1972 / Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India)

Picture Perfect


full bare breasts clasped
in a tight embrace, lips
glued to the jutting nipple


eye lids tightly shut
in supreme ecstasy, hers
semi closed in a trance


two bare bodies bathed
in the halo of the bright
glow of the morning light



woman
in eternal
communion
with child

    Such a beautiful write about the closeness of a mother and child. Both
    were well satisfied and delighted in this very special bond. You amazed
    me with this poem. Very good indeed. (Report) Reply

    this poem teaches you not to judge too quickly... On first sight, one is inclined to judge this poem as very erotic based on its title and first three stanzas! The last stanza made a ridicule out of me. Thanks for your masterpiece... (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
