Portrait - Poem by R.K Das

As I gaze blink-less
At the bare beauty of your persona
Behind the thin satin coat
Your portrait steps out alive
Out of the golden frame.

Your portrait generates
A multitude of elemental emotions,
Some romantically elusive like fluttering butterflies,
Others tangible like love-making,
Yet some others audible like the dying cadence
Of a stringed music played on my lyre.

Am churned by the immaculate portrait
Like the ocean
And I deliver nectar and parijat
From the dark womb of my private secrecy.

I owe it to your portrait timeless,
As I take the yet-to-be christened
Eleventh incarnation of Indian pantheon
Embodying love and truth
With an assured confidence.

    Shahzia was right, and the poem creatively done, as what shahzia said below...there must be a phase where you see anything and create things as the beautiful arts...keep it up_Soul (Report) Reply

    There is a phase in the life of man a creative being when art shows through many forms, and he becomes all in one...a poet, apainter, a sculptor...whether he uses words through colors, or colors through words...no difference! the strength of images makes the persona addressed step out alive out of the golden frame of the poem...
