ANJALI SINHA

** Slow And Slow ***

Sans rituals
slipped the costume
down the mounds,
silk and the zephyr
lit the fire of love
with the vintage wine,
for another night
in the nest of love

she gave in at last
slow slow the visions show
to the depth of your love
amidst the tinkle of music
for eternal breath
in the open skies

    Slow although, she gave in nevertheless
    under the open skies where the stars and the moon
    were witnessing the surrender.
    Lovely again.

    Lovely nice poem. I express it through this:
    Love really comes in a slow manner,
    I am your ardent admirer.

    Anju, your poem gives me an eternal touch if something comes slow, remians long.But your title is two adjectives, in future you consider it.

    Anjali,

    No beating around the bush here, a lovely, seductive poem of earthly delight. It is softly written, softly read. It is your economy and choice of words which make a penetrating image. It is more of a dance than a poem, which is to your credit as a writer.

    yours,
    hanque

    Nicely done (before and after) ,
    Good imagery...appropriate rythmn in the verse (to match the motion and emotion) ...Good write Anjali.
    Now, what's to be done with Amit Ray? All science..and guide book in hand, forlorn, , waiting for some magic to happen....Oh, babumoshoi...ki hochhe.! !

    Cheers.
    Subroto

    for eternal breath
    in the open skies
    are the lines that show the suffocation and the poet wants and has got an open sky of love to breathe.
    good poem indeed.

    The cogitational destiny of a lovelorn and its gradient with the advent of the very day's countdown.
