Poem: Vagary

Source

Oi, You! Yes, You.


Her pious Garden had hues of love,

Soaked in scarlet below and above,

Ludicrously you purloined the fruits and trees,

Ludicrously you exhibited a slice of bees…

O woe! It was Her sanctity.


You held a fragile Bloom in your hand,

Slothfully you rendered it to a heedless land,

Slothfully you ripped its vermillion petals apart…

O woe! It was Her tender heart.


You touched a chalice of limpid wine on eclipse,

Airily you raised it to insouciant lips,

Airily you quaffed and hurled away the bowl…

O woe! It was Her genuine Soul.

What a masterful use of words Surabhi.

"Slothfully you ripped its vermillion petals apart…

O woe! It was Her tender heart...

Airily you quaffed and hurled away the bowl…

O woe! It was Her genuine Soul."

Your pure beauty shines through your poetry.
