Reshma Ramesh

Looking Down From My Balcony

As I sit on my bed
Golden orange sheets,
Made of silk, my head
Tilted, combing my hair,
The wind pushes the
Wooden door of the balcony
Slightly ajar bringing
In the melancholy tunes
Which you sing for me,
The ivory comb drops
To the marble floor
My white veil touching
The floor, rush to the
Door pushing it apart
With my pink hands
And enter the balcony,
The peacock dances
In the lush lawns,
Roses bloom, Nightingale
Sings and there I see
You my handsome Prince
Standing with arms folded
Over your broad chest
Looking up at me with
A smile as I look down
From my balcony

    The scene you depict in such lush detail might have come from a Bollywood movie. You take the reader to a far-away land where the air is filled with the scent of sandalwood and the eye, dazzled by a confusion of sumptuous colour. A romantic poem from a romantic heart. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    Of the passions did I speak
    From books old or music
    In syntheses
    Moses and Christ and the others
    My masters in the tavern
    With “Paris” did I cross
    The sword as in Romeo and Juliet
    Shakespeare might have read
    Or heard the story from the city of love

    Standing are you on the balcony in Verona
    “The mole on the cheek of my love”
    So went I in passions when I asked
    The friends to hear me in the city dear

    Known am I in the world of love
    My self you have become as for me
    My identity are you for my love
    Like my address on the wall of my home
    In the tavern when I sip the cup
    I see the reflection of the eyes drunk
    In passion I see for reason is not mine

    When your sweet words descend on me
    From up above the balcony in my search
    You told not to speak of the philosophies
    Of love and be the initiate

    When my cheek speaketh the love you seek
    Lost are why you in the world
    Did not I tell you are drunk with the wine
    Nature is me and the universe I hold
    Of earth and mars and canyons great
    You speaketh for me they quote to listen
    The seduction of my eyes they shall never forget
    My head in your lap but they look at my eyes

    Like an unsheathed sword am I
    Tread softly for the path is dear

    This is a vivid free verse poem, Reshma, filled with superb imagery in nearly every line. It tells a beautiful story very well and your descriptive phrasing is outstanding.

    Thank you. A visual scene from my younger days when I daydreamed of (to me) alien and exotic cultures.
