River - Pooja Srivastava (Poetry)

Updated: Sep 20, 2018

In this beautiful poem, Pooja Srivastava, uses the eternal motion and flow of a river as the perfect symbol of love.

Glared  a  river, flowing  as eternal, 

Prospering  in  serenity, blooming  in  vernal, 

Immigrating  from, banks  and  alleys, 

Soothing  my  soul, falling  from  valleys, 

The  voice  of  water, tranquils  my  soul, 

I  shut  my  vision, it  drifts  on  knoll,

Petite  my  anguish, turns  in  glory, 

I  lend  it  ears, and  hark  its  story, 

River  recited, you  bathed  in it, 

And  smelled  so  divine, numbing  its  wit, 

A  part  of  you, stirred  its  skin, 

Yes it  was  ecstatic, your  warming  whim, 

Your  image  was  casted, on  river’s  shawl, 

And  beclouded, your  reflection  scrawled, 

The  destiny  bewitched, river  in  you, 

And  you  swept  in  me, precious  and  blue, 

Your  bliss  derived, an  unspoken  frame, 

I  danced  in  rivers, abolishing  the  tame, 

And  hunted  for  traces, of  floating  you, 

Wondering  of  you, in  shapes  untrue.
