What Is This Sweet Emotion? Poem by kunjubi varghese

What Is This Sweet Emotion?

We are always seeking the quintessence of love in our mind
Do we at any time realize, if it is there as we stand near it?
Is that possible to explain it in a simple word?
Does it come and fill our heart unknowingly, without effort?
As a ripple in the shore kissing our feet
And sweeping away the sand underneath them?
Or does it echo in our hearts and reverberates
In our life when it is present?
We are seekers always on the march!
Is it a sparkle in the eyes?
Is it a fragrance permeating as from the sweetest spring?
Or is it a gossamer string that bind two hearts together?
Or a precious pearl that develops in an oyster?
A cup filled with the nectar or ambrosia?
Is that the fawn of a steer appearing in the moon?
Or an oasis in the ever sweltering heat of the desert?
Or a magic spell that envelop us in its hold?
Or a sentiment that cannot be uttered in one word?
Tell me what it is….
Explain to me the manifestations of such an emotion,
My beloved, if you can as you get the drift
And immerse in it!
