poetry

Observe and Proceed

Observe and stagnate the cuts on my eyelid
or the shaking body
Pretend that love-making, a part of the moon
In the windowsill, in the corners of the ebb

Pour your heaviness on my bosom at rest
where the hummingbird knit its nest
Slice and colour your hands
Honey-suckle your moist tongue,
clocks kissing clocks
Mysterious church bells, hush.

Observe and stagnate my white blood
whisper your spring,
thunderstorms into my belly,
carve it into a sweet meadow,
something like soft and crisp,
Hanging bulbs, lotus, potion, lotion.
clean and holy.
Blend your colour, smell
and scratch my bones.
Observe and Rest now.

  1. Observe and stagnate the cuts on my shaking body..you started with a lot of passion in lines…now can I hail you for this paragraph.Pour your heaviness on my bosom at rest
    where the hummingbird knit its nest
    Slice and colour your hands
    Honey-suckle your moist tongue,
    clocks kissing clocks
    Mysterious church bells, hush….what the heaven…such a seductive capsule of this whole poem…blend your smell ,colour and scratch your bones…..I don’t want to appreciate anymore…I am out of words.and I am in u happiness..as india won…anyway..devika..you always kill smoothly and deeply

  2. I can only learn from here, now that i a pen a few in a poor copy style. The ambition is to reach somewhere near and I know to equal is blasphemy. A disciple never thinks of equalling the goddess. But a fan needs blessing, daily if more frequent is not possible
