An Ode To… “what I love”


Rising snake,

Pony’s tail’

Lion’s mane!


Shines and softness

Glows and darkness

Mystic and the greater enigma it veils

While arrested and while it bounces out

It mesmerizes, captivates and drowses – no doubt.


Clouds and shadows

Aroma and whispers

Dreams, joy, resolve, anger, mischief and love

Inspirations and the emotions it encases

It intoxicates, seduces and enslaves – as it embraces.


Wet n divine

Dry to be merry

Wet n intimate

Dry to get a mystery

Manes and tresses

It always possesses

I try to break free from the lure

Only to get entangled more
