turn off the heat

you and I know

that the only way to secure

the lid back onto the pot

that is over boiling

is to turn off the heat

.

together

we can turn off the heat

.

ignore them..

a paradox too lovely to forgo

(my first poem reposted- Nov 17th 2009)

.

love takes away their breath

yet in that fatal breathlessness

they find life

like a lily blooming in winter

I relish in your cocoon

the sweet smell of scented petals

garnishing my thoughts

for I know I will never wilt

and dews will never form

only frozen in time

with you..

.

.

.

scarlet rain

scarlet rain

you stain every perception

that appears before us

soaking us with your ugliness

.

scarlet rain

your taste of salt

swayed our composure

consumed us with your doubts

.

scarlet rain

we backed away from you

but you always linger on the foreshore

allowing your stench to permeate

.

scarlet rain

you have no reason to be here

you are at the wrong place

leave us alone..

.

.

.

tenderness

tenderness

you seeped into my life

through the sound holes

of your flute

you overtured on wings

striated on its melodies

gliding by the remotest

of my terrain

through the suppleness

of your fingers

you soothed my senses

unequivocably

sending ripples

through my ears

skimming the surface

of my verdant paddy field

and into

my troubled heart

that is when

I began to calm..
