05. Fragrant Jasmine - Poem by Praveen Kumar in Simply Yours

I adore you for your innocence,
For the crystal purities of the morn dew,
For the sterling glow that streams from you;
Simplicity you wear and humility you bear
Shock the senses to natural ways.

You sit on soul like fragrant jasmine,
You touch my soul like velvet feathers;
The warmth you radiate melts all gloom,
Sunshine you spread enwraps my soul
And I transfigure like God in your presence.

You are my peace, you are my grace,
You still disturbance deep in soul;
Tall tides of quiet joy floods my life
While sparkles I see in your eyes
And blooms of smile I trace on lips.

You are gentle queen on noble throne,
You are holy heaven brought on mundane world;
You are refreshing dawn invading long night,
You refresh my world and instill pure joy,
You stir my soul to enlightened heights.

You are pure flame of noble kind,
You spread gentle glow all around you,
You brighten things, brighten soul within
And gently lead self to righteous world
And stir conscience to nobler deeds.

I adore you for your quietude,
The serene awaken ness inherent in you
That blossoms soul, captures heart,
And spreads soft harmony everywhere;
Sunshine you do bring to my gloomy life.

You readily acquiesce within frame,
Gently stand up while things are wrong;
You hurt yourself, never hurt other souls,
Seeking for self is alien in you –
You burn yourself to shed light outward.

You are pure gold, diamond in strength,
You are my soul, the soul of my soul,
You are my drive for perfection;
You spur vitalities and sprout wings
To cover all heaven and hell alike.

    Sir best poetry on flower I’ve ever read…you’ve placed and parked Jasmine to that celestial plane from where only Divinity transcends …metaphorical excellence on canvas of serenity purity and best attributes [un]imaginable painted in words …thanks for sharing…
