Femme Fatale

Thine cheeks blush

With sun-soaked pallava[1]
Your glossy golden hue
Flashes morn to eve
To seduce the sight.
The stag springs inside
When the soil emits petrichor
Kissing the drop of rain
As Vasanta[2] urges the torrent.


The Concert

The concert starts
With the prelude of gentle breeze
In the bamboo wood.
The jiggling of light and darkness
Plays with your eerie figure
As the moonbeam forms you.
The cricket and the owl
With their incessant music
Make you morbid.
And you dance, dance and dance....

[1] In Sanskrit pallava means branch of trees full with leaves.
[2] Springtime. Here the Spring is compared to a beautiful lady.
