A Love Theme - Poem by Satish Verma

Dusting a rose
dissecting a heart. There was wilder-
ness in the woods.

I cannot touch you
O, wood sage
you were so ephemeral.

Your hands were
knitting a bright wound in the air.
Where was the moon?

Not a kiss,
the prodigal sun
wants a death wish of a canary.

The snow on the
eyes. I wished I had
met you earlier.

    A rose is one of those strange flowers with thorns for its protection and often is the flower to give to a love one during courtship when people are still on their guard (thorns) despite being attracted (flower) . Some fear to touch flowers because of that but not sure since you have a break between the 2 stanzas. Sometimes thorns can prick hands and cause bleeding wounds. The moon a light in the evening, followed by the sun in the day, but no kiss all that time? Not sure about snow on the eyes, but realization that it may be too late for anything to happen.
