My Gift - Poem by sekharan pookkat

Backwaters whispered in my ears
A song of lust, love and lustrous
Palm leaves repeated the lines
To exchange a gift for my Princess

She was moving with her friends
Towards the holy altar
In a chariot of ivory
To show her beauty and majesty.

Her heyday of youth
Made my old lyre active
And played the primordial symphony
To prove my utter poorness

Backwaters whispered in my ears
The ring finger should not be empty
On the eve of rendezvous
And remembered for ever.

We yelled on her arrival at the holy daises
And stood for a moment and exchanged a ring
Half gold and half silver
As a token of my love and fondness.

Mountains smiled slightly pouring snow
Dale hugged in surprise with flowers
Sky screened in blue with rainbow
Wind embarrassed me slightly and tightly

    When heart is filled with love
    a torrent flow starts from the inner soul
    without knowing anything in front of me.

    Stay away from the backwaters
    lest they tempt you again
    With the mind willing and body wanting
    And fail in the real bargain.......

    Thought provoking and good poem Sir. I invite you to my page too for critical comments please
