-         Manas Bakshi (India)


Sitting face to face

His eyes fixed on

The cute curvature

Of her tumescent breasts;


Sometimes silence speaks

And words retreat

Into the valley

Of an unspoken mind,


There’s sunshine

There’s shower

Efficacious vibes grow

Into some gracious flowers

To combat the omens

Of an uncertain hour —


Before everything ends

And eternal calm prevails

He seeks to unearth

The mystery behind

What looks like

The bosom of the earth


And a flower vase

In the midst

Likely to last

For a lifetime

Adorning immaculately

The amaranth of a mind

Full of love, pure and sublime.
