A Dozen Irises and Birthday Wishes..

 

 

How I wait…and... ache in this field of Dandelions

You can think of me as one of them

Whispering desires in the drowsy dark!

 

Oh how gracefully..

The seeds of these weeds kiss the ground

With an air of finality, carrying secrets in their hearts

Pirouetting in whirls, ready to sink in someone’s dreams

And roil there, trembling and erupting, breaking silence

Flying to the edge of space to have their essences fulfilled.  

 

 

Then they ask me,

If Dandelions fulfilled all my wishes

Why that bunch of pink  Irises sits  on my bedside

I chose Irises because Roses scream out too much love

And Dandelions, they are too delicate to be gifted

Too ephemeral, they are just meant to be understood.

 

And above all, these Irises now fulfill my hypocrisy

What more can I ask for as a weird social cocoon

 

I cant even tell him, these my words are for you, Love

For your serenading soul’s timeless beauty

You god of all my longings, luscious as well holy,

I send you this bunch of Irises, birthday wishes and smiles

Of a quivering Dandelion, standing exposed to careless winds..
