A Glance Says All

Rating: 4.8
Glowing as a lamp I saw a lone onlooker,
adorned with the flares of sun - one Gloria;
Unleashing a blaze of beauty around her,
lighted my heart's patio with her wine aura.

Thousand arrows pierced through my heart
when I looked into the eyes of that shooter;
My life ceased to matter for me since then,
I'm moved by the finesse of my fair mimer.'

Gleaming glory of that demure damsel
was accentuated by her decorous dealings;
After years I inferred that - 'A glance says all.'
'One's savoir-faire reveals one's placing.'

It was like watching her from a distant shore,
calmly sailing a canoe on the shiny ripples;
Until now, I've kept a storm in my fragile heart.
Never saw a peace dove in a land of ruffled souls.

Her hazel eyes were on me, her lips were sealed
it was our reticence that were in conversation;
A dialect that I spoke the very first and the last time.
All along it was neither a voiced nor a quiet session.

After years I inferred that - 'A glance says all.' 'One's savoir-faire reveals one's placing.'..... how wonderfully you have expressed here the love in that glance; that's a glance where love lives with the long life dream; it's not a day dreaming but a life where comes not separation, comes not pain, comes not distrustful; this glance creates in the realm of heart just love and divine feelings; delightfully written this poem on love; I enjoyed

A look or glance is enough to give a chilling thrill to the body. Meeting of eyes tells every thing which words fails to convey many a time. A thoughtful and articulate poem. Enjoyed reading it.10++
