SPRING~by Saroj K Padhi




Image may contain: tree, plant, outdoor and nature

Mango trees rain showers of scented buds
as wind rustles thro’ the thick leaves
echoing the sound of your anklets on a bed of beaded grass
when drizzles from a thin mist douse my thoughts
in hues of a resplendent sun, as away the grey clouds pass;
and its warm love sucks in the mist along with my moist soul
to make me a toy in the hands of a mischievous breeze
that plays many a prank with the lusty flowers
as they invite bees to suck under their scented bowers;

someone calls me from behind in the chorus of birds
when I lie enchanted by the perfume of her presence
somewhere very near yet from reach very far
and on the mind’s plains, shadows from the past dance
a full-blooded Spring seems to be in my embrace !
