Diana Poems

Water

You sway
Like my emotions
You glitter
Into my eyes
You swallow
Me inside
You give me warmth
You make me shiver
You keep the petals of a rose
From wither
I look at you
You are transparent
But within you
There is beauty
There is life
And without you
My petals will stiffen and wither

    this is soooo lovely.. the analogy which i made out, out of this was as in you were refering to a loved one as water.. anyways poems have no one meaning.. so i culled out mine.. anyway, thanks for a wonderful read..

    regards,
    krishna

    Diana, there is nothing shallow about this poem... rather, a deep journey into the essence of water. Brilliantly done! !
