******* To The Poet******* - Poem by Seema Aarella

(To the one very popular poet on Ph…whose poems have inspired me to a large extent, whose poems I love to read and whose poems do not get off my mind, but keeps coming back in my dreams and wakefulness!)


You elevate my senses,
By words, mere words!
I can see your silhouette,
With my very eyes closed!

For long it lingered,
Words, your mere words!
Even when I was gone,
After leaving the book closed!

They swathe me like sunlight,
Words, your mere words!
And arouse a longing,
That in me had remained closed!

They surround like spring,
Words, your mere words!
And liberate the timid primrose,
Off the inhibitions that had it closed!
