! ! ! ! ! Wardhan-I 'Mist of Lavender'

Do you burn incense? ?
Do you like the willowy tendrils of aroma
caressing your lithe body..
today when I smelt lavender
I thought of you and
of the possibility of smuggling the fragrance
into your realm through the many treacheries of time …

I couldn’t find any courier, carrier or courtier…
so it remains …atremble..
a captive in its glass mausoleum..
un-smelt, unborn
so there will be irate oracles
on tangent as their haughty nostrils
were not flooded with the waft of supplication;
there will be burials unwept
as the ephemeral balm of ritual
went sadly amiss …..

I’m resigned to a life
Undrencehed in the lavender
Of your love
till a new uprising,
till a new intrigue or
till a courtier carrier or a courier..
lighter than breath
is born …

    Rehan, the poem is sublime and the lavender lingers on, born again, the scent intensifies, a lotus flower blooms swimming in the open waters surrounded by the presence of cloves, color unknown in its own breath it appears, a reflection of its own self, so gently broken before, once more alive.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
