|| he births in me love ||

he hears me
like his first love
he plays with me
like childhood memories.

he feeds me
the first morsel of his love
he sees me
as his future

he nurtures me
like his palms
he kisses me
like his precious dream

he reads my silence
like the most powerful dialogue

he shapes me with his love
he gives me the joy of re-birth
before birthing his progeny
he births in me love.

|| letter of desire ||

within you
my love has blossomed
like the fantastic
blossom laden tree
of the earth

my eyes long
to see themselves
reflected in the
love in your eyes

within me is the
fluttering, restless as
your eyes letter
of desire
your eyes wrote

your eyes
imprint on me
the deep pleasure of memory
the thirst of un-lived longing

within me
the memorable touch
of your embrace
in that ring
i dissolve
and become a river of love

my shadow
becomes one
with your

|| love ||

love blooms and
and settles in the eye

one with the
rhythm of breathing
words dissolve
in their own rhythm
as raag in words
as words in raag

in the face of opposition
love has created love

love echoes
and men forget themselves

only love remains
as the sea
remains in the sea
the earth
in the earth
the sun
in the sun
and water
in thirst.

|| you happened ||

you happened
and i could
sniff the suppressed ache
of fallow land
that has sprung up
with spring
and a musky sky
and flapping flight

your words
released in me
a transparent fall
against thirst ...

you happened to me
and i knew
how flowers get their perfume
and tenderness
how sunshine colors them
how the heart
expands into a tree
where the butterfly
gets fetching colors
why the honey bees
build a honey-comb
hanging on a branch

seeing myself
in your eyes
i know
why the river flows
on and on
like time ...

|| like a letter ||

like a letter
you entered the
mail-box of my life
and became the love letter of the soul

in the sweet milky light
when moonlight dissolves
into the glitter of the stars
turning into a dream
the moon sleeps in my eyes

with the candle of loneliness
melt sometimes words
sometimes i ....

breathing in words
drenched in sweat
reliving that tender memory
i place the muggy ache of my heart
in my sweaty palm

words hold
in their palms
magic reality

in the secret casket of words
in deep solitude
words are born wordlessly
as a new date
is born at midnight

every morning
the sun pours sunshine
into the new date
as love replenishes
the fount of words
as mountains deliver
their river of love

lips know the honeyed
shiny touch of words
as the poet's lips
know the
words of her poem
the lips of the poem
know the lips of the poet
like words
like love in words.
