Paper boats on waterless seas

Clouds
Dark n swollen
Like overripe plums
A lil squishy
But awfully nice

Stains
Like blackberry juice
on white petticoats
Like unwashed sin



Rain
Earth
Wind
No fire.
Just everything drenched
All thirsts quenched.

Swollen
Like the river.
Overstepping bounds.
With mischievous fingers
Groping always.


Wet
Like a washed calm
of thoughtful sunsets.
Fingerprints
On sprayed windows
Slithering down.

Brown.
Of wet earth
On sides of long distance roads
Of sun kissed tomatoes


Ripe
Like suckered nipples
Or if you find that not in taste
Rum soaked raisins
Wrinkled edges
now drunken smooth.

hello poornima,

the passionate and erotic nature laid seige, the distant rumble a throb, the tide too looked away - distant - too far away...... a sharp shadow of what once was.........waiting to be plucked...nice and affectionate..

keep posting

Poornima, Loved the poem. I am just finishing reading your entire blog and girl, the multi-dimentionality of your alternative character is superb.

I read the blog...and think.. hmm nice... and then I see the pictures at the end of each.. and I am staring... every single picture in your blog is incredibly full of thoughts and emotion.. I feel like you put the pictures there because even you may not be able to write the perfect 1000 words to describe each picture. Excellent stuff Poornima.
