In morning's grass-leaves...


I see poetry...
In morning's grass-leaves bathing in the sparkle of dewdrops;
As the cool droplets kiss the green
of the sprouting grass
and tenderly bask in the newborn rays
beaming from the orange sun.

In the flowering hues of a spring's garden...

I see poetry...
In the flowering hues of a spring's garden
celebrating the festivity of the season's greetings
and smiling like multiples of rainbows
welcoming the silently hunting butterflies
and - -
offering loads of delicious nectars
from their sweet hearted blooming plants.

In a crystal stream's winding

I see poetry...
In a crystal stream's cascading through the ice-rocky mountains
carrying the chill of the melting glaciers
and winding in the folds of serene green lands
traveling while brushing and rushing ahead
to meet and mingle in the ocean destined in its long run.

I see poetry...
In my Father's raised hand blessing me
silently wishing a great future
with an unuttered-out prayer
for my well-being at places wherever I go
in search of love and livelihood.

In my babe's clutching at my breast and dozing

I see poetry...
In my babe's clutching at my breast and dozing, still hungry
but dreaming the worlds of the past and the moments of
its comfort in the womb, as I wonder how a life grew within me
quite mysteriously unknown to my physical senses.

In the rhythm of my heart...

I see poetry...
In the rhythm of my heart echoing murmurs of delight
cherishing all the sweet moments inexpressible in words
but with a touch of hearts beating with the same soft intimacy
in its unawareness of subtlety consummated in the eternal love.

I see poetry...
In the midnight-sway of drowsy trees shuffling my summerdream
breezing away the sorrows of life incidental in the passage of times
undeterminable by my mind's connivances however I try out
to control the happenings beyond my innocent imaginings.

In the flight of birds...

I see poetry...
In the flight of birds under a dusty cloud radiating an old sun,
floating in their freedom, sky high confidence
and airborne escapades advancing
into the endless trajectories of fanciful Creation.

I see poetry...
In a peep of moonbeam through the roofslit of my country hut
reaching my inquisitive inner spirit,
revealing its straight strength piercing into my soulful meditations
and kindling the stagnancy of submissive thoughts.

In the silence of starlit sky...

I see poetry...
In the waft of falling petal of a timedrawn flower
dolefully touching the ground-reality of death imminent
in its incidental departure from the mother-tree
witnessing helplessly shedding the leaves imprinted with
the chronicles of unwritten happenings of the life here & now.

I see poetry...
In the silence of starlit sky blinking in endless innocence
keeping an infinite eye on my journey unaware to my intellect
of whereabouts and wherefores vulnerable in the annals of
inconceivable incidents of volatile immediacy.

When you stretch your hands...

I see poetry...
When you stretch your hands
to the sky for something eternal
or when you pray mindfully with a heart
that belonged to a space-infinitum
And--
When your tearful eyes wave me off
to some distant lands in search of meaning
of Life and this exotic existence.

just wonderful. I really liked this.

My favorite stanza is:

In a peep of moonbeam through the roofslit of my country hut
reaching my inquisitive inner spirit,
revealing its straight strength piercing into my soulful meditations
and kindling the stagnancy of submissive thoughts.

the "s" alliteration is great and it really makes you think. Wonderful

This is beautiful, inspired nad has such wonerful imagery (in the poem itself and also your photo choices). Favorite parts-

I see poetry...
In the silence of starlit sky blinking in endless innocence
keeping an infinite eye on my journey unaware to my intellect
of whereabouts and wherefores vulnerable in the annals of
inconceivable incidents of volatile immediacy

AND


In the flight of birds under a dusty cloud radiating an old sun,
floating in their freedom, sky high confidence
and airborne escapades advancing
into the endless trajectories of fanciful Creation.

I see poetry...
In a peep of moonbeam through the roofslit of my country hut
reaching my inquisitive inner spirit,
revealing its straight strength piercing into my soulful meditations
and kindling the stagnancy of submissive thoughts.
AND


I see poetry...
In the waft of falling petal of a timedrawn flower
dolefully touching the ground-reality of death imminent
in its incidental departure from the mother-tree
witnessing helplessly shedding the leaves imprinted with
the chronicles of unwritten happenings of the life here & now.


Kudos.
