Curved Eyelash

I could feel the vibration of your screams in the air.
'Twas in a curve of the time.
Your sight was in touch with this vibration.

I could understand this vibrating touch.
The curved time had a sense.

'Twas like a sigmoid curve.

The air was very much compressed to make a sound...

A twinkle in your eye was assailed
to reach the ground
while gliding rapidly along your very long, curved eyelash...

You would re-enter your own world, deep inside you,
You would become the curve in itself
to make love become an unstable point of equilibrium...

A gray cloud formed, when the air was heated by the sun.

A sphere of incumbency would engrave
your insular thinking, nor your thinking
would be able to keep the memory of

that second any more. That second of time
could glide between my fingers

for a prayer.

The horizon of the sea
was photoengraved with corals and shells...

The eye on the horizon received the wholeness for comprehensiveness....

This comprehensiveness could shiver the universe...

You would be awakened, and you would be able to be revived...

    this poem depicts the real feeling of having our eyelash curved...a moment of awakening, a sign of happiness... brings joy to whom ever our eyes would set in.

    nice words, nice flow

    A lovely poem transporting from sensuousness to super-consciousness.

    Hey Dear Poet lend me your poetic imagination…please please...

    Imagery has come live and alive…palpable and pulsatile…

    I can ‘listen’ the subsubtle quiver of Curved Eyelash...

    Exquisite read for me on 1 January 1,2010 and poetically I’m filled up and flying…

    Flying 10+++

    This poem i feel, must be read along with your poem- 'Flight'...much connection i notice...the curve and the air are the poetic tools in this poem...rainbow and flight in the other...
    Apart from a curved eye brow, the caption curved eye-lash takes the poem to a mystic surreal level...the theme underlying i feel is the hopes in life...and the uncertainty of the latter...10

    sweet poem for the one who stay inside you.. your imagination for him or her is wonderful, he is not before your eyes..but you skectk his face and feel that the air which is touching his body smells you his presence.. mtaphore.. pictographic effects are found in this poem.. but again in deep conceiving style of romance.. your poems are like melodies of love..life and like the fantasies that you mix with your love feelings for unknown but IDEAL of oepne eyes dreams.. really a good poem..10/10

    The air would assemble in a gray cloud,
    By wrapping your insular thought
    The thought inside the glided silence
    To the autumnal leaves.
    I couldn’t keep that second anymore.
    The second glided between my fingers....what an imagination of beloved... i liked the idea so much and may cherish for longer period...i loved it and taking as poet's gift....10

    I couldn’t keep that second anymore.
    The second glided between my fingers
    My praying fingers.
    The horizon of the sea
    Notch corals and shells
    In the horizon of the eye,
    In offing.
    It seems to prepare
    The awake of the shiver,
    For being revived

    Curves leading to an unstable equilbrium-fantastic metaphot=r. It leads to many tangents that I could mention, but I prefer to leave the poem untouched, since it is perfect.

    'The vibration of the air,
    Around you
    Would be touched
    By your sight,
    By curving the time.'

    Really your poems deserve to be read many times. They have a poetic taste. And they reveal the unseen, and the unwritten.10.

    I love the way it gows from a tiny speck in the eye till it engulfs the hole person. It flows and grows. Truly great!
