On the vast sky of emptiness
There lay the most handsome face
Inches away from the surface
Life glittered in the blue eyes…
Oh, how perfect!
Caramel curls and solemn arches
Chiseled edges and heavenly petals,
Falling into the abyss
A restless echo hung in the air
Ravening beasts dwell in the green
Could they shatter even slightly
The divinity of stillness…
To flee from the madness
Delving into the ripples
Has he lost in the self
Or has he found the self?
Ego embroidered over the love
Nevertheless, have you ever
Bloomed so goldenly
Sequestered yet proud on the banks.
P.S: The son of the river god fell in love with and was engulfed by his own reflection. Narcissistic he may be but the river banks were kind enough to embrace the flowers that emerged in his name.
