sense of staying- a poem

Hi, Welcome to my poetry world yet again. I guess we all have no better solution rather than staying positive and hopeful. I am glad to feel this positive vibe yet again after all that India has been through and is still dealing. I am trying to do as much as I can and that includes taking care of my mental health as well.

Sharing a poem. Let me know your views and in general how life has been treating you all?:)

And maybe this shall never end-
Here, I rest my palms along with the stars,
twigs of sunsets
hoping for tree of wishes
a spoon of lukewarm winters
which sits beside my small mind
a roar of summer breeze,
producing so much that only my heart can see,
 and maybe this shall never end-
yet I long for coral sweaters,
                attachment layered sky
above and below-
           the dreamcatchers
            in the grainy rain.
Our mouths unravelling
and spitting a tongue of hibiscus growing
scrubbing all the sins away
lights spinning- gold,
poppies in a bathtub
and leaves fluttering across our bodies-
we want this,
           a human touch
a human being, indeed.

If you love reading my poems and works you might enjoy my book Crimson Skins. I can’t believe it is soon going to be an year for my book and each time I hold my baby, I am choked with pride. You can get your copies on Kindle, Amazon, Pothi etc.

  1. A beautiful poem, Devika. I can sense the gentle hope. The situation in India has been and continues to be so heartbreaking. I’m glad you’re feeling some balance and a positive vibe. Stay well, my friend, and Happy Writing.

  2. Thank you Devika for the concern for us. We’re doing okay. In fact support like this will make things easier for us.
    On Crimson Skin, the book I purchased, I was thinking of writing a review.
    But the book is of such high quality and I am clearly not qualified to write a review.
    All the best to you. Keep inspiring us

      1. Thank you Devika for the kind words. You are my favourite poetess, even with my limited knowledge of the field.
        You too, stay safe
