The art of Poetry: Brindha Vinodh

Brindha Vinodh
I pour into her-
she pours into me.
Together
we flow
as
a river
carrying the soul
kissed by the sun 
the moon 
the stars ️ ️
and the eternal sky
playing the
music 
of the birds 
with the
flavors of the seasons.

Bleeding
as and
when weeds wade
through-
polluting-
only to masquerade
those clotted scars
as scarlet roses  
to retain that
fragrant fervor.

Smoothly flowing, still,
until those turbulent waves
of a powerful
tsunami take over
to merge and converge
with that one perennial ocean-
a mahasangamam of several souls.
