Breathless Love…


Passion cried the Sitar,

Duped them the Morning Star,

Misbehaved their tiny boat, in tosses scaled the river,

No oars, no boatman, no direction to bother,

While the monsoon moaned to its wettest climax,

Tucked and tied inside, they sat glued to each other,

Lashed, spanked and drenched them, the water,

Deaf to thunder bolts echoing the tidal grove,

Unfazed, entangled in arms, they challenged Nature,

Till the clouds cleared with an embarrassed Sun’s signature,

Deserted on the backwaters of Kerala,

Many a breath, then breathless they made Love…

  1. Boy we’ve missed that! As usual my friend, beautiful!! Now that we’re done with our books, we’ll be stopping by more frequently. & we have missed your beautiful poetry! On another note, Inion & I have a gift for you. We wanted to send you a Kindle of our two books. You’ve been such a good friend that we wanted you to have a copy. So if you could please drop a note & leave your email & we’ll send them over straightway. Thanks our friend, & once again, beautiful poem!

  2. Words for the moments, and such times, when life escalates to natures music, song, the emotion of weathers’ kept stories, that is what comes to mind as I read under a Summer blue sky, stories which come alive while writing… Incredible lines a tune to the voice..

  3. Hi Debaroon,

    I need to acknowledge for the deep thinker that you are at a young age. What resonated with me is this line, ” No oars, no boatman, no direction to bother…” As you think of this what does it signify to you? Not only in the context of the verse but otherwise. To me this can form the basis for all the Rules of our living. Unfettered, unattached, fully present.

    What has made you stop posting?
