Incandescence Blooms

new lovers - glowing - 
explore each other's bodies

      incandescence blooms

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

A sculpture of shadows and lines

She is in her bed, lights filtering through crown glass, shadows and curved lines playing with her nudity, an old erotic sculpture. Shadows and curved lines- they know how to play with her, where to land a kiss where to give a paint-brush touch how to caress silky curves. Each line tells her tale each curve longs for more caress, shadows crowned by lines perfect Michelangelo, a sculpture of light and shade. © kash poet ============================

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

Beach of Bliss

Sultry summer night;
stars are winking at the moon.
As I gaze at you,
ocean’s tide rolls in. . . . We kiss.
Stars now wink at us! What bliss.

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.

Two blue butterflies

two blue butterflies
following me all the day
I am no flower
still they are so close to me

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.

Romance Under The Canopy


                                             Under  canopy
                                     The  canopy of thick trees
                                         Just my love and me

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

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!

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

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 !

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

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!

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.

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.

night of desire--visual2

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

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
