Art Of Surrrender


Drops of nectar
Seeping from your lips
As I gently tread on your world
Holding my ground
For your succulence
To wash away
Every morsel
Of my lingering fear

For fear
Conquers the soul
As a mosaic of thoughts
Flashes in front
For untrained lips
Are bathed in ambivalence
In the absence of experience

As raindrops of
Newton's third law
Moisten the mind
Yearning for perfection
In an idyllic equilibrium

For beneath the smile
Of virgin lips
Is a flickering flame
With crumbling knees
Parting with a silent plea

'Teach me my love........
The art of surrender'

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
