' ARIKE '... so close!

I was touched.

It killed me to learn and think
To lure upon the feeling
Undone.
To realize, he was the one.
To speak without words
For words were a luxury then
The magic of the eye that waved her wand
To withstand.
To understand.
I knew at once

'Arike'
So close

I was moved.
The air as I breathed
Gave in a message so deep
Across the space that built in through
And I knew
As I felt it true

'Arike'
So close …

I was blessed.
The love in him and in me to sink
I saw beauty, I saw wonder
To know that the greatest need
Was close; so close indeed
Beyond love without greed..

The language of the heart to hold me proud
The silence to outlive a shouting crowd
I knew it had but touched my soul
A rhythm as in a gentle breeze

At ease.
‘Arike ‘

So close.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The word 'Arike' in malayalam means intensely close.
The realization of how close 'Arike' is what I was fascinated about.
This is dedicated to my favourite movie maker- Shyamaprasad for his latest venture with the same name

Arike
- so close!
