Forepassed spring…

Fragrant florescent blossoms
which nurtured me with
gentle caress and
embraced me in
the sweet warmth of
the delicate folds of
their once vibrant,
velvety petals…
are all wilted and withered…

Pellucid petals
shed and shattered
swiftly carried away by the
relentless zephyrs
lost in the silhouettes of time….

a sudden tinge of pain
a flush of grief from the
rheumy eyes
Just a trail of scented memories
left behind
where their golden dust shines….

Milky Moon

In the quiescent silence of the tranquil night…
a fervent wish lands upon a star, gliding on the lambent moonlight….
a fragile, gentle dream swirls and twirls in the eyes….
of a promised secret land of phosphorescent purple blooms…
permeating fragrant dulcet perfumes….
where the dainty fairies, dance in nonchalant reveries..
to the mellifluous tunes…
and the earthlings, in delight
croon and swoon…
to witness the magic of majestic milky moon….

Like flashes of fluorescent phosphenes in my eyes
they dance and sway and shimmer and fly…
the flickering memories….

Swirling and whirling across my skin
arousing the whirlpool of emotions
from the fathomless depths of my being….
the watery memories….

Of flowering springs and relentless rain
of ecstatic raptures and stinging pain
of cavernous sorrows and buoyant laughter
bringing tears and smiles together….
the bitter sweet memories…

Lachrymose twilight….
melancholy shrouds the sight….

Pallid pall descends, as the dismal clouds arise…
Downpouring despair, splits open the sombre skies…

Ramshackle heart drowns in doleful deluge of grief…
Woebegone winds write the epitaph for a fallen leaf….

Nightingales mourn, willows weep, with me laments the cold night….
Drenching me to the core, the lachrymose moonlight….
Hold me tight as I weep tonight…..
