Something Old Something New
Frozen ripples of moments
When in the hued horizon the crimson sun rose
I saw you flash across my dew latticed meadow
Chromatic glare of dawn flushed your satin face
On flow of time the ripples of my moments froze.
The glint of your seraphic eyes glistened on me
Filled the void of my yearning with your grace
Before like a spritely butterfly you could fly away
Leaving me in the debris of crumbled ecstasy.
On the wings of desire my heart soared up high
Floated across the silver-lined clouds of dismay
Dreams behind portals of rainbow I won’t close
Until my yearning could fly in your sapphire sky.
Whenever I’d plunge in the deep abyss of blue
The fleeting glow of your face I’d seek to view
Through the grey haze of despair it’d take me to
The sunburst horizon where I’d surely find you.

The sunburst dawn’s flaming film
flushed your flamboyant face,
as the horizon turned to golden fresco
in my dew crowned meadow,
you flittered like a butterfly,
my yearning poised on frozen time.
Before you could fly away far
with the fragrance of my fervor,
leaving me in the debris of ecstasy,
I suffused my soul sensitive
with the ether of your enticing lure,
flowing from the fringe of your eyes.
My heart turned into swirling cloud,
in gale of desire drifted in depression
through the arch of transient rainbow
where the dreams melted with colors,
for lasting longing to fly in your lilting sky
I will wait entranced till the end of time.
That’s when the storm of agony will abate,
and I will find you beguiled once again
across the horizon enclosed in eternal bliss,
swathing sensual sheen on your essence,
I will see it morph into a mesmeric sea,
in its enthralling depth of serenity I will sink.
