Poem by Daipayan Nair


 

The Dawn Blues

11/08/15 13:19

The damask dawn leaves its hut straw – hued
only to watch the misty ivory bare it all
The poet inside many a bud mushy, burgeons into rose
only to get plucked by juvenile quills answering the call.
Sparrows chirp marigolds of tales classic;
weaving renewed waves of grandeur with a tease refined
The Sun inside many a hibiscus attracts the desirable moth
only to be lulled by the melody of shutters defined.
The vibrant vibgyor acts jealous of the dominant red
Daffodils of paradise adding chiffoned adjectives to the verse
The tranquil shores inside many a Eurydice restless for her Orpheus
only to be calmed by the dove’s whistle terse.
Bells and horns, livelihood adorned, engage in a symphony new born;
The grasses dreaming of elegant twigs, drawing conscious breaths
The fragrant air inside many a skin waits to pen a rhyme
only to be inhaled by romance tinted fronds of inner depths.
The damask dawn leaves its shell velvet stained
only to watch murals newly hatched
The poet inside many a bud mushy, burgeons into rose
only to get plucked by juvenile quills answering the call.
