Of Thirst Hunger And Sleep... - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

Thirst...

Parting between lips
drops a cup of hissing feels
sweet and kiss thirsty…

Hunger...

Perching on the mind
searches out for tasty food
down yard lust hungry…

And Sleep...

Eaten swollen breads
drunk on sweetened bottle wine
lie bodies half sleepy...

    Sensual underpinnings...penned with much taste....I see that two of the three verses are in perfect traditional Zen Haiku metreing(5-7-5) ....And i don't think this was by accident!
    Astute, & innovative write, Kesav...
    P.S...If you so celebrate, i herenow wish you a joyous, and reflective Diwali Feast.May the power of Knowledge, and spiritual light be with you & yours.
