Poem: A Timeless Tryst

Source

A cuckoo gazed upon a timeless tryst

From a crystalline mirror,

And caught a glimpse of ebullient lovers,

When Golden Light sprawled

Across the placid waters,

Cascading from the lake;


Whence Day and Night met tenderly,

Whence Sun and Moon cuddled enormously,

Whence Sky and Earth kissed amorously;

Such was the yearning –

A true love… an Eternal love…


Magnanimously, rain dribbled down

In the parched Souls,

Though it calmed the storms

And quenched their thirst;

Healing their ache,

Yet pulsation ensued in hearts.


The stars came down, treading on Earth,

The grounds metamorphosed

Into the velvety skies,

Spreading plenteous jewels, pearls and sapphires;

Ah! What Ethereal beauty

Shimmered on the delicate dew!


The Moon refused to go back to abode

And opted to fetch Glory

For the lovers in love;

And whilst they dived deep,

Deep into each other’s eyes,

Time just froze,

And that very moment

Became their Life;


“Thou beest mine, thou wast mine, thou wilt mine,” he said,

And fragrance filled the air,

Melodies resonated in the cordillera,

As the lovers sensed each other’s presence,

Flowers Blossomed as they blushed,

And with the radiance of their evergreen love,

The ambience became evocative.
