caress

Posted on Updated on

with such care
you unfold my petals
disrobing my essence
you leave me
desirously entangled
in your purest daring

your subtle love play
finds me caving
in your soft yielding touch

bodies entwined
floating in time
I delight
in your clinging

Never far
always close
gently tugging
at my heart strings
you call.

On which plane
do they span,
encounters
that alter lives.

pure poetry

Diggin’ the rawness of expression – the soulful truth that is.. everything.

the calling

Posted on Updated on

You are
with me
within me
every second
of every moment

Yet, I live the truth
of ‘You’ away from ‘I’

Yet I feel
this intense separation
from home
Like an unborn child
pulled away
from womb

Like the thirsty desert
that longs for rain,
an affliction
with no remedy for pain.

Sleepless at night
restless for days
Beloved, your memory
stirs me awake.

My trembling lips
heaped with sighs,
endless tears, in your name
are now running dry.

Without you, my essence,
how am I
to stay alive?

Calling out
my entire being
leaps,
gasping
for a breath ..

I miss you.
Take me home.

season’s greetings :)

Posted on Updated on

My lovely readers,

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for being a part of this space 🙂 Appreciate each and every one of you. Writing and poetry has been a sacred experience for me and if you can resonate with even a single post here, I’m humbled and grateful. As I went for a walk this beautiful morning, a realization surfaced that I thought I’d share. Three things of value that can’t be compromised – the company of loved ones, taking time to feed the soul and enjoying simple pleasures of life.

May this holiday season bring you warmth, love and all that you’re looking for.

Love and Light always,

Himani B

Light
has always been there
never beyond reach
flickering
at times flaming wild
defined spaces
clear boundaries
but to have a heart
that has bled much
loved much
it is in darkness
that the human in me
comes to life.

I often leap
to touch your colours
breathe in
your lingering taste

in agony, in ecstasy
I climb inside you
as you unravel
in my veins

in your garden
flowers blossom
like open secrets
and warm kisses
fall down like rain

your one spark
spun me in a trance
now lost in you
I have become insane

every single memory
leads me back to you
born out of love
my very existence
bears your name

tell me
oh darling Beloved
how can I stay apart then
and yet
remain the same?

even the moon
s.i.g.h.s
at the sight
of your incandescent eyes
pregnant with light

my existence
on an empty canvas
what could it be
in words so few?

ah! a splash
from a paintbrush
dipped, in the shades of you

don’t be afraid to show
what you know
what you hold inside

whats kept hidden
suffocates, slowly dies
or worse what you make visible
will be perceived as a lie

only the truth that is burning well
will help you survive
a deeper knowing, a fearless thought
a feeling that consumes alive

say what is on your mind
while you’re still full of life
let go, love, express, ignite
it is definitely worth a try

my love, don’t be shy
no breath comes out of a dead self
not even a sigh!

you, my love
are a beautiful expression
of the Divine

the only reality
I want to wake up to

incessant rain

Posted on Updated on

absorbed
in the symphony
of raindrops,
our shadows lend expression
to undiluted colors
of madness
of dreams
as you become my muse
inspiring me,
loving me

you come closer
draw me near
a meeting
upon the altar
of our shrine

a sweet torture
as amorous stars
fall from your gaze
into this silent reverie
fading us away

boundaries dissolve
words melt away
in this duet
between the shores
of delight and pain
submerged,
we loose ourselves
in the spell
that remains
