A Quilt of Passion (for Joy)

I look out last night To fondle the shining stars How lovely your eyes Bright asters glowing Soft the liquid rivers run I scoop joy's delight A soft wind blows here Where is the jasmine blooming Naked to my sight Love sings in the tree The nightingale is awake It's heart breaks for you Far away the stars Like dry grass of memory Burns in water still I need you tonight The moon is late, I'm alone And shadows haunt me Stars all silent stays Yet the wind will speak your name Nothing mutes my heart I love you, brown night Your fragrance the heart's drum beat Too loud for my sleep. I fondle flowers Soft as light upon your skin Dreams are stolen keys. Open stoma's door Tiptoe the light on petals To kiss the night gone

Outstandingly beautiful and enchanting haiku, capturing the mind and heart to travel with you in this lovely sketched scene of your romance with the nature. Great write my friend. And many thanks for your kind and precious comments on Patradoot and also on my late father whose work, which remained in dark till now due to various reasons. Love and best wishes always....Ravindra....David Smalling
