The Desire - Poem by Tribhawan Kaul

Your two plaits touching your breasts
like a roving cloud caressing mountain tips
flirtatious eyes with a sharpened glance
and an infectious smile on your lips
painting a picture, as if, you see
the Goddess of love is besides me.

Navel, like a lotus flower
earrings enhancing your charming beauty
call you what? Rati, the consort of Kamadeva*
or address you as Mandakani.**

Resonance of anklet bells
enhancing of beauty of your feet
tender and elastic body seems to fly in the air
beholding you, is a treat.

Love or lust
perception I haven’t just
but I pray
you to remain
always in my dreams
this is my desire & you must.
