waters off penumbra

waters off penumbra

we are but elements

on the silken loom

while you weft quietly

under the moonlight

weaving rivers of patterns

back and forth

over and under me

I warped

facing the stars

I dutifully clung on to receive you

our tendrils go different ways

we function differently

but we accentuate in great finesse

with your skill and determination

and my strength

with you above

and me supporting below

the tapestry of our love

finally flourish in brilliant colours

waters off penumbra

we deserve the accolades together

we revolutionise

and we did it

with no thimble..




scented flowers

scented flowers

your petals sublime me

I trace your contours

in awe

fingers unfailing

every spread


and moist

that glistens

its delicate surface..


scented flowers

you spellbound me

I closed my eyes

and by the breath of day

I melted

between the sprays

of your lovely petals

in all sweetness

in all freshness

I peer open..


scented flowers

that one moment

brought thousands of petals

come raining down



slime on my lips

I stretched out my hands

to feel the curves

elation lingers
