When Love Speaks! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

The first showers of rain when it sprays on the earth
As if the earth eagerly waiting to quench its thirst
It Spread the aroma of love all around
Which Knocked my heart and felt as if new love was born.

When the first virgin sun rays touched the earth and
Spread the warmth of love
The earth waiting to feel the warmth of touch
Felt as if the warmth touched my heart speaking of love.

The colourful butterflies were so naughty
asked me teasingly
Whats going on in your heart
That you are blushing with love.

The beautiful fragrance of flowers
Spreading their fragrance all around
Made me feel that as if essence of love is
Covering me all around.

The mischievous waves came running towards me
And splashed the waters and showering me with love
I don't know when I missed my steps and fell into the love
And it hugged me so tightly and took me deep into its heart.

Love always comes in disguise
And it grip you so tightly that one cannot escape.

    The aroma of wet earth
    Signs of a new birth
