Rookie - 40 Points (visakhapatnam, india)

Raat ki Raani (Night Queen)

Night-queen sparkled
Amidst fresh green leaves
Perfume in bunches!

Leaves hide
Behind bunches of flowers
Perfumed night!

Tiny petals
Five in numbers in
Perfect symmetry

and by morning

Some offered to earth
In gratitude for
Another day

The night queen
Sprayed an exotic perfume
Distinct from night's scent

The moon heady
With the night's scent
Slept satiated

But the sun glowed
And glowered helpless
In passion, unbound

    Maybe the title should be Night Queen (Raat ki Raani) since what is in parenthesis does not appear in the poem. Beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Certainly a fragrant poem, and if we talk in terms of the tools of the poetry business, the olfactory sense is invoked with v suitable images...this poem tells us about the pleasant wonder of nature... raat ki rani...thx for the feast indira ji.... (Report) Reply
