The Evergreen Remains - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

Under an olive tree
On the shore of sea
Hand in hand eye in eye
We used to sit, long back
My baby and me..

Through those year long tracks
Resting on the memory yacht
My mind sails towards that shore
Where we had a romantic role...

I behold the shore, the sand and sea;
Behold the well grown olive tree
Behold the waves that alone seem
To sing a different note in glee

I wanted to search the remains
Of romance we left over in the air;
Searching the tree the sand and shore
I could find them, right up there...

The new leaves; I could feel in them
The remnants of our love; their rhythm
I could hear, the one time songs, sweet
Fresh and lush in green, in them in repeat...

    What a peaceful poem. I find it amazing how some birds mate for life. Surely they would write such a poem too..if they wrote. (smile) (Report) Reply

    wonderful write kesav often do we return indeed to places we've shared with loved ones only to be weighed down with sadness and disappointed at the loss of some purity...but youve not let this peice go down that road youve given it an uplifting romance with the olive tree...making peace with your past.
