in Just Feeling

A dry lily-petal

Water was everywhere


Where not?

Didn’t it nurture ?

Gave life

Gave Blood

Gave meaning

But then

Why’s the petal dry?

Arms of leaves stretched…..

Eyes of blossoms sparkling…

The love that’s swarming within..

Why doesn’t it come out and soak everything for good?

Why’s love failing me?

  1. But then

    Why’s the petal dry?

    You have wisely created a “metaphysical ” poem Avinashi..

    Water to Petal to Love…the combination is quite unnatural…however the sense..and feeling of the poem is superb…
