The Shadow In My Garden

Rating: 4.8
Among
the daisies of my morning garden,
and the golden leaves of grass that
dance untouched when the wind fills
into their arms, just down the
eucalyptus trees,

Among
the butterflies over the rosy nectar,
and the dew over the tips of the
old leaves, and somewhere in the
greenness of the little garden,
falls your absence,
which grows more denser with each
blooming petal of petunia over the
smallest plant that stands as bold
and bright beside that old bench
where for hours, some crows used
to sit and babble,

Under
the brown soil and above the green
grass, falls your absence,
quietly and unknowingly, which
gets denser each falling rain that
falls so loosely and unconditionally.

The cuckoos that used to sing when
we walked, hand in hand, breath in
breath, around that small pond of
lilies and lotuses, don't sing now
even in the spring days when the
fragrance of the flowers mingle with
the cuteness of the air,
Now, even the pond stands empty-
with a cup that seeks water
every time when some dark clouds
hover over it's body, maybe-
this greenness, these songs fail
to recognize your absence which
still falls in my morning garden,
among the lush greenness that
keep asking for your presence.

A fantastic poem from a yearning heart! Piyush, this is real piyush (juicy nectar I mean) although the mood is sad. But, the sweetest comes from the saddest as our poet has said. (10)
