BREATHLESS~by Saroj K Padhi




No photo description available.

Breathless I wait for you behind the wild bush
Like the moon behind a dark cloud for the morn,
For the sight of love’s sweet face we two bleed
In half-lit shadowy spaces, torn by invisible thorn ;

Each shadow of this night draws a picture of you
As you boil like a hot Summer in my young blood,
Each wisp of wind enlivens your fragrant presence
In chants of your musical name in susurrant sod ;

Each foot step in dark makes me imagine you near
Till the night thins down to end all frights and fear
And dawn cracks to reveal only part of your beauty
Dispelling nightly delusion, making things all clear ;

Your deep sleep is the dark at my dreaming eyes’ edge
You’re a panoramic view from behind a thorny hedge !
