The mustard fields are gay
With cheer a thousand times
Galore than all the charging waves
Foaming like champagne celebration
Florets of disked delight
Beam at the bright in dark hues
Flaunting their brave flags of
Joy, sheer joy at the flaming sun
"Sunflowers!" they simply claim

A handful of evening rain
Shimmers through hues of gold
As he shines beyond the sylvan clouds
Like a poet who smiles
Beyond paints and white 

A piece of turmeric promise
Tied in a string 
And woven around her 
Neck on a marigold morning
Showers hopes of togetherness

The Genesis
Of fire, gold and immortal pages

Of Art and the Artisan

Spring nights,
Warm with the fragrance of
Mango blossoms 
And the crystal star dust
Spread in peace 
Across the blackness
Of my eyes
Reflected in the nocturnal
Glass sky 
Seduces your manly art
Of creation --
The dance of Shiva
Frenzied in love;
The utmost Love 
That only she can hold 
Who inspires the dance 
Of destruction
Of helpless desire
The meaningless cravings
To belong
To own
To possess
Shantam shantam shantam

Dance to the music 
Of my anklets
