Harish Mamgain is fond of the craft of writing. He loves poetry.


The Flame

Like memories in the mind,

Tiny leaves wave in the wind,

You look as graceful petite,

Who waits for her soul mate,

When I touch your trunk,

I feel the beloved's bosom,

Flame ! do you know how,

I long for her soft embrace.

I keep staring at the wall,

Lose track of all goings on,

Only her memory flashes,

Everything turns insipid,

I don't want to remember,

Anything except her face,

Desperate I seek her out ,

As flame burning in your lap.

Brush crimson on her lips,

That wind takes from you,

Succulence she owns like,

You throw beneath the feet,

When I look at your crown,

I think of her quiescent face,

When you wave your body,

I relish all her lithe moves.

Twirl and twist the leaves ,

I want to savor her laughs,

When you shed your shawl,

She will smile in solitude,

Whenever I walk past you,

Will open my heart to you,

Listen to all my pangs then,

Feel close as she can be !

      I adore this. So many recycle words when wanting to describe how beautiful something is. Well done. Simply put... Beautiful.

      So glad am I to have your presence on this hub. You are such a huge motivator to me. Trees though tongueless speak a silent wonderful language. Since gulmohar is one of my favorites, this is my humble tribute to this very affable flame tree. Thanks for reading this poem , vote up,sharing and presenting such beautiful comments.
