I feel you

when sun
gently kisses
swaying leaves
making them glow
I experience you
..
upon carefully treading
uneven cobblestones
I espy a tiny slug sliding
unhurriedly..am filled
with the wonder of you

I can wax lyrical.. string poems
with emotional lows highs finely
nuanced even now ..but my
addicted soul craves a hit from
the pure opium that is you
..
I glance at trees…aimlessly
wandering in fields..taking nibbles
of exquisitely colored skies overhead
and upon seeing earth in downward dog
poses called mountains …I get recharged
..
let me again feel ..delight in your tiny
soft palm reassuringly curling in mine like
it did long time ago.. let’s babble in toddler talk
once again …allow me this amazing grace my blue
beloved before these maternal sands finally run out

when sun
gently kisses
swaying leaves
making them glow
I experience you
..

Autumn

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
~ Albert Camus

Autumn
..
loving
underdogs
as I do
it’s easy to fall
in love with Autumn
..when
trees in disarray
begin publicly disrobing
in pallid shades of greens
ochres, chartreuse,
deep puce, vermilions
and golden …..
in riotous showers
carpeting in an all out display
of kissing the very ground
they stand
upon

……then
almost naked
branches boughs
sturdy and brown
proudly gleam
in the sun
as nature
oiled nubile
bodies
leanly
sculpted

Memories reminisces
Add zest and spices
To these dog days
of summer not very nice
~
Sepia smudgy photos
Keep turning up ~ misty
eyed I hungrily stare …
heart squelches in toto
Such is weft
of love loomed
Woven
Life

painting: Van Gogh

jostle

jostle of dry autumn leaves
underfoot
felt like those tiny tender
desires that’d died
still births
some
hopelessly romantic leaves
still clung on trees
fluttering
perhaps unheeding
nature’s message
I wondered
as I made my way
dragging
reluctant feet
away from home
knowing full well
home
is where heart is

O Stalwarts
sublime
With ramrod
Spines
you
lift this
Droopy
spirit
Of
mine
Twin
Eyes
Of own
Volition
Kiss
Yon skies
Cheered on
By your
far- reaching
Leafy green
Boughs
Divine
