The Aphrodite

Embraced in Seraph's wings
I had my last sight
New world to a new world
I was flying like a kite
From nowhere her warmth came
Snapped my beautiful flight
Fearing I might loose him
I held him(Seraph) so tight
Soon he could not bear it
Left me alone to fight
Then I got my own wings
To guard me from her sight
Warmth started embracing me
I couldn't find respite
Soon she started kissing me
Restless was my plight
I twisted, I turned
but her presence was too bright
Defeated me, finally opened my eyes
Flickered a bit in that vivid light
Mesmerized & startled to see
I was held by The Aphrodite

The Aphrodite

The new life of every day
First melody of every soul
Adorned with music of Avians
Smiling with blossomed flowers
Freshness of new feelings
With the blanket of Love
The Aphrodite is no one, but
The beautiful rays of Sun(morning)

(Here they're coming from the windows of my room)

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It starts with sleeping at night and getting up in the morning.It's a quest between one's desire to sleep but the sunshine coming from the window won't let him / her sleep..

Seraph..... a member of the highest order of angels, often represented as a child's head with wings above, below, and on each
Ist 2 lines state that I was about to go to sleep

Then In the next 2 I was dreaming

Then the sunlight comes, the first few rays touch me, the dream phase got over and subsequently the fight to sleep starts

The Aphrodite...I opened my eyes n see from the window the beautiful morning sunlight... The music of birds.... The smell of flowers....renewed me..... the feeling of love.

    I wrote this poem about sunlight- it was interesting to read yours.


    Climbing trees
    Looking beyond mountains-
    Memories of childhood days of
    Wading in a creek and flying a kite-
    Locked within moments of madness,
    Sitting in a churchyard
    Trying to hide from all that was real,
    Where the rest of the world was the enemy-
    It was the day that they came and took me away
    To this place where I never saw the light of the day-
    Urine stained carpets, Sallow walls and sleepy eyed people
    Pacing up and down halls toward nowhere-
    Half a century later I am still the stranger fighting these moments of lunacy,
    Although I can now see the light of day; Trees have never been greener,
    I have the key to the world outside and the walls about me are stark white,
    Decorated with paintings though colorful and intriguing
    Evoke tears and sobs emerging from within.
    Skies are blue and trees sway in a gust of wind-
    The world would appear to be a striking place
    But the key to veracity and life’s purpose
    Does not fit the lock that binds my heart, mind and spirit.
    I could sit in a churchyard and hide and
    The sky would turn colors before me, as
    I would pray for some peace of mind -
    I was once a child, flying a kite, wading in a creek-
    Today I would hold onto the tail of that kite and let it
    Take me to another level of consciousness- someplace
    Within that colorful sky- but I know deep inside
    I must find the right key that would fit the lock that
    Keeps me prisoner from serenity and being the person I am inside-
    That person I hardly know- that stranger to my surroundings,
    That person fighting a war with herself- climbing a tree towards nowhere-
    Although urine stained carpets and sleepy eyed people are years behind me now, and
    Looking beyond mountains I know I have the key to the world outside-
    I am thankful to be seeing the light of day shining upon the creek-
    That creek I used to wade in and the sun’s rays shall unlock the key to my
    Heart, mind and spirit one day, I know-because I can feel the heat embracing me-
    I can feel that heat drying my tears and in time, I believe-
    That warmth of the sun shall enter my soul
    Unlock the door to my mind that contains so much darkness and madness,
    Set me free, and let the light of peace shine inward….

    Aphrodite, warm on me..again
    Presence of shine, cares mine
    Bright with the touch not secretly meet
    Seraph greet helplessly sober me
    As the warm hold me so tight
    Aphrodite comes to sit beside
    Kiss of sunlight over the dark night
    Left me speechless by your morning light
    Aphrodite, warm me again
    ...It is nice poem Sharad especially the last stanza, like it much_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
