Let The Body Speak'

Rating: 5.0
do you know
that this ancient body
longs to speak
devoid of niceties
bereft of metaphors
the only language it knows-
the language of
agony and ecstasy
when desire strikes with
the intensity of a boomerang
hurled eons ago when
we roamed the earth?
…it’s the same
unsettling feeling
then and now too...
and when the body
begins to speak
scrawling its unique alphabet
without guilt
without frills
there arises one single
moan of ecstasy
in its pristine form
paralyzing yet vibrating
through the entwined
limbs and nerves
it strikes the frozen darkness
till then lying fossiled within
the inner walls with the
sublimity and alacrity of
a lightning…
for once
for one fleeting moment
though within the other’s grasp
your body and mine
go beyond us as
each nuance tickles us in
an ecstatic joy…

from nikunj: this is beautiful Indira...this has finesse, this has grace and the respect for one of the most sought after desire since ages. you have used the simple words here very well...I liked....1. a boomerang hurled eons ago when we roamed the earth - nice way to put the essential elements of project the innermost needs in words..2. scrawling its unique alphabet without guilt...this is divine and mystical....physics at its best, wrapped in chemistry...3. frozen darkness till then lying fossiled within............this is delicious to the poetic appetite...Indira you are a magician with all I can say on let the body speak From Nikunj

The body indeed has a language of its own which has been brilliantly versified in this write, a poem which raises sensuousness to an almost spiritual level.

'…it’s the same unsettling feeling then and now too...' I often use this expression while discussing about civilization or the so called evolution of mankind. Feels good to see it a poetic form that too penned by my beloved teacher.

The ancient art of body talk, communication of the primal kind, we all know that language deep inside, that's where our true self resides... Andy 10

Body language is a fascinating subject and it really interests me, particularly when people communicate with the opposite sex. Once we understand what our bodies tell us, it can make life so much easier, although when one is in a stressful job as many are now, it is difficult to do what one wants to at the time. Your poem is outstanding and emotional, loving, thought provoking and written with imagery, wonderful vocabulary and flair. 10 love Karin

devoid of niceties bereft of metaphors the only language it knows- the language of agony and ecstasy -- I must say Indira, this is a truthful write... Nude and pure... But obviously not obscene... your body and mine go beyond us as each nuance tickles us in an ecstatic joy… --- Body has surely its own language and sometimes we should let it speak freely and should put so called imposed constraints on the side... for the freedom of heart, mind and soul; the body should enjoy freedom as it requires...
