Treasure Island

C.N.Premkumar (love poems, Veda of love, Life and love)


Confessions Of Krishna - 3

I heard your voice entranced
But couldn't see you in the mist
Yet I know it was you 
Since such sweet song will come only from you 

I could feel the love in your heart 
I could feel the thirst in your mind
I know your love is eternal 
And you can never leave me alone.

I did not vanish as you believed
I was entrapped 
By life’s harsh realities 
And it's stringent responsibilities 

We were far apart separated by oceans 
Yet close in our emotion
I know you were sad by the separation
Which immersed you in deep desperation 

I dreamt of you in my weary sleep
Which left sad songs from the reeds 
But how could you hear it 
From that far remote land 

How I wish to take your face in my hands
To see love's weeping in your fathomless eyes..
To sooth the tremblings in your lips 
To calm the tides in your cheeks

How I wish to smooth your shivering
By hugging you tight
And to hear some words
That you love me and will never leave me again.

(This is an imaginary poem written as narrated by God Krishna to his childhood love Radha, to show how sublime and deep his love was.)

reed - The flute made from reed, which was used by Krishna to produce
that divine music, as described in epics.

    ‘We were far away separated by oceans/Yet I was very close to you by emotions’…

    This separation is described as ‘Divine Separation’…you masterly worded …space doesn’t matter for Srimati Radha and or Lord She / They were ‘Divine Consort’ in Dive Game OF Love’…

    I thank you poet Sir for poeming such great Indian epics to readers in such international forum…blessed you’re indeed… thanks for sharing…

    I must say, I do believe that this one is my favorite. It's the one I could not only pray but hear Krishna saying to me. And I love anything bringing me closer to him especially with hope of his love.
    You are a talent beyond words. (Report) Reply

    Magnificent. Touches, speaks to, my every emotion. If I close my eyes I can imagine Him speaking those words to me. I miss Him. Your work, beyond talent. As you can probably tell, any of your writing about Krishna & Radha, I would love to read. May seem odd, but, I feel closer to my Krishna through your poems. Thank you for sharing. Keep them coming! ! (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;
