My marigold colored soul


The sky is clouded in orange hues
Like twilight’s marigold shades
Adorning the night’s arrival
Under the one star
 That made the soul of the universe spin
Till you came into being
Lo… this miracle

The sky’s changing shades
Surrendered destinies, untamed fates
And
A lone soul under the star, spinning since the time
You came into being


Oh! My marigold colored soul

The Bridge


The bridge that I once chanced upon
Has long since disappeared
What remains are my memories
Etched in light, they appear and disappear at once
And, I am left with a longing

This strange longing
For an unknown love fills me
Like the night jasmine blossoms that aren’t ripe yet
They await the skies, as they turn into a state of surrender

Then, when I decide that the bridge isn’t easy to find,
The river isn’t calm enough to walk by
You arrive
In your eyes, I find the lost bridge, that connects me to the cosmos
The river suddenly runs calm
And, night jasmine blossoms flower upward, their fragrance filling the earth and skies  


A love affair begins

SOUL SKIN

You search for the soul…
And your search stops at the skin.

Texture, colour, it’s clear unfiltered composition
Skin… it’s nature akin to the body!

Are bodies souls?
Does soul have a skin?

Some scarred skins
Hold beautiful souls

Some battered hearts
Know of unconditional love!

Have you tried searching?

O Dear God!

The tame bird has never known a better abandon
For, his flight has colored the skies
The colored skies
Are your expression

In the dwellings and dealings
of my heart
you are ever present

My search has now ended
For

In my love, you have come alive
As my soul

O Dear God!

Every Night


Every night, when the night lilies whisper their jasmine joke,,,
When the  night heaving in it's slight plummet
Sprinkles star-dust in our bone...
When bodies of the world align in breath

My blood vessels tune to the beats of your soul
And, my being dances...

The caged bird

A man to his caged bird.
'You look beautiful... my precious..'

Do I? asked the bird, waspishly stealing glances at the sky...


'Look all you want' said the man, the skies don't belong to you... this cage does...(tapping on the gold crested cage)


'No sir. Replied the bird, bravely.The cage belongs to you...


Me, I have carried the skies in my heart since the day I was born...

Carpets

Carpets are weaving themselves
With the ecstasy of the dyes
That are leaving behind their colour
For the sake of their love-  Cotton
