When You Arrive - Poem by GOBINDA SAHOO

When you arrive
With a soothing wavy clinch
Of fair autumn blooms
Or velvety pat of marigold
In the early winter dawn
Clad in diamond studded grassland
To meet after the sagacity
Of grass widow
An avalanche in me melts,
Blanketing the hurricane-
Nay, the volcano,
In heart and soul
In the firm flight of falcon
To talon the prey
Or love with equal dexterity and ease.
The clouds in bottle tussle
To kiss the earth struggle
The earth with the heaven mingles
Dissolving the hilltop swindles.
In your approach
The stars in elation smile
With their eyes in glee twinkle
Gliding in ease, the moon awakes
From the blanketing clouds to grin
The uprooted tree with twigs anew
Days of light it counts though few.
