Incandescence Blooms

new lovers - glowing - 
explore each other's bodies

      incandescence blooms

              the moon peeks down through branches
                                    of the oak two lie beneath

i’m remembering
the three of us
the dull pain I felt
walking along
the way she looked at him

In Dreams

Naked in the surf

   We splash and play together.

Falling to the sand

   In a hot lover's embrace....

 I awaken to snoring.

The Warm-up

Leaning into me, you brought your long dark lashes right up next to mine. Butterfly kisses, you said - before I’d all but melted.

old leaves are falling
sailing, reluctant, kiss death
the fragile air breaks 
healing hearts are letting go
love letters, clutched until now

Under the Cedar


                                      Jasmines in the breeze
                                      wake crickets in unison
                                      surrounding the pond
                                      I'll wait under the Cedar
                                      Please, do not turn off the moon

Love’s most emotive,
And so special to us all.
It’s all-consuming . . .  
Capturing the hearts of two . . . 
Binding flesh, blood, soul as one!

Kiss the Rain

With every rain drop your tip toeing finger's touch writing a story; in my thirsty heart your pen now scribbling with ink of love. So I kiss the rain to feel every bit of you touching each word; to read every page of you this heart wants to be get drenched. © kash poet (kashinath karmakar) ======================= 26 th Feb,2013

honeyed flavor drips
        on watermelon’s core, pink
          flesh sweetening mouths
…a zing like nectar's fragrance
to thrill when popped rind gushes

breaths taste moist syrup
    earthy aphrodisiac
               when melon lips grind,
          … as he sinks his teeth in mine
nibbling juicy midnight love !

* aphrodisiac has 5 syllables

For You


                                            From the Hunter's belt
                                            I picked out the middle star
                                            and named it "For You"
                                            For its light's pure as your love
                                            and prey to your heart: I am

The Moon and Back Love

Howling lamenting 
staring into her white gem

Happiness one pure virtue 
dripping starlight tears over

A dream of great beauty

behind weaving
maple branches and leaves,
the sky is hidden;
instead, I see stars shine
in the night of your eyes

Walking leisurely 

On your path myself I found,

Asked if still your heart

Kept love's treasure once we shared  
Our happiness to build now!

your forget-me-not smile

building a nest now
with your forget-me-not smile
dream bird of my mind
flying too close to you now
to capture those rainbow smiles

Your Sweet Kiss

Once more your sweet kiss
shrinking the expanse of world
in your parted lips
I am having a rebirth
as if there's no tomorrow

Genghis Khan was born,
Gripping a blood clot in hand.
But Love Child more bold,
And if I can say more cold,
Grasped I.U.D. dripping blood.

It's Spring Again

Spring has come again.
It’s time to visit good friends.
Get off of your butt.
Lay laziness aside man.
Dance and prance and make romance.

Beauty In The Eyes Of The Beholder

Lovely baby blues
Your eyes on our wedding day
Years melt and are gone
Age changes outward beauty
Memory keeps the moment

Yellow Rose

Approaching her now
The yellow rose behind me
Ran out of red ones
My heart is throbbing through me
Will yellow mean something here

Placed in her hand now
Slumbering daintily on
Her fingertip bed
Cupid's tear drop flows onto
My hand binding us for good

In My Moonlight Dream

In my moonlight dream
we’re dancing in a forest.
Green earth is our floor -
and moon beams - our disco ball
while soft music is the night.

You are clad in white.
My golden gown sweeps the ground.
My beautiful knight - 
Your bright eyes adore me as
you twirl me among the trees.

Your Glare

Dear the moon in sky
I recognize your beauty
I value your glare
Alas, I cannot reach you 
As I have fear of flying

wraps us  in soft rainfall
quenching  mouths’  hunger…
as  breaths naked, gush
jealous stars peep silently
