As Beautiful As Me (Part 3) - Poem by Reshma Ramesh

You say you find me in the gathering stars,
Evanescent beauty, iam no shooting star
But I am as beautiful as the midnight sun.
You say you find me in the roses.
Fugacious blossoms, iam no flower of an hour
I am the quintessential wild vanilla

You say age is my foe but he is my confederator
Because with age I spice up like pickle.
My dear, you better not dwell on my verses
For it ain't worth your tending and musings
They are only my thoughts taking a stroll.

I make no pretenses what so ever
For I wear no veil, I am as open as the sky
I avow my beauty is nothing
In front of the beauty of my mind
For it is as truthful as gospel
It knows great fortitude and love

I can't help it if you find me amusing
I aver I am as strong as courage,
It aint my fault you cant stop laughing
I am as clumsy as an oaf, neotic Venus
I am one of a kind, only as beautiful as me.

(A sequel to ‘The Temptress I’ by poet Sadiqullah Khan)

    This third part of your great poem was equally as interesting and charming as the first two parts, Reshma, and I liked your repetition of that great ending line from your first poem in these latter two parts as well. Your use of the phrase neotic venus late in this poem has me wondering if you meant neoteric (a modern writer/thinker) or neurotic (a medical term for being nervous) ? Overall, however, your poetic talent shines in all three of these wonderful poems. Carl. (Report) Reply
