Excerpt from “Echoes And Consequences”
Orange of the Departing Sun
Picturing an evening along with the mild rainfall,
Sun was illuminating the tiny drops
It rained some liquid gold. . .
I saw you coming to me,
My eyes were staring at your glory
Beach sand was glistening,
Sea was singing a mesmerizing
Song. . .
All of a sudden, as we came face to face,
Sea seemed to have become still,
Calm waves were giving a background melody of romanticism;
Shore birds were humming the chorus
And our locked eyes started to perform
A Divine Duet
Note after note in rhythm….
I opened up my arms to give you the hug of solace,
My tears of joy were dying to tumble down and write the tale of our pious love on your blank blushing face
My chest then became your eternal
Abode of tranquility,
My whispering voice, the pacifier
of your intimidated heartbeats. . .
Our feelings got their wings
for a majestic flight over the heaven,
Sweetheart, what a soulful union it was
Emotions blended with our co-existence,
and painted a riveting image of our
evergreen concord, which was
watered down, by the Orange of the Departing Sun.
