MY SOUL IS A POEM
MY SOUL IS A POEM
Morning sun smiles
I spin the words,
Lost like dreams
In its art at night.
I rock and drift
Vexed in thoughts
Frenzy’s lute plays
Rapture of music.
Words are sprinkled
In my room I sit,
Faster than water
Falling from hills.
They shine green
On trees of morn,
Transport my mind
Testify truth unseen.
Words are stars
I am the sky,
I am grass
They are green hue.
They are flowers
I am the garden,
The blissful joy
Assured for me.
Thoughts are essence
Lay down my words,
Like clay for the potter
It gives art a shape.
Spell bound I listen
Discover me new,
I smile at tears
Even melt in them.
They sensitize me
Play me as a doll,
I lose me to find
My soul as a poem.
