In every fissure of those Rubenesque flutes
I blew to my heart’s yearning deep sighs
of burlesque passions,
Sync together euphonious hums of those
unrequited moments, which like whiffs get
infused in elements of thin air,
A melodious tune conceived out of the duskier
crevices of fluted grooves where dwells
hooves of undeclared pains…
Laments of past, of present of coming tomorrow
ensembled by porous winds in those
Each sigh, every whiff, all breaths harmonized
to escape out of the curvatures of the fabled
flute of the mighty gods
Those rhythms on whom senile poets pen bleeding
verses,Darvash twirls and kneels on tombs
Tempests rage and coil
Puff every bellow to fan hollow winds in raven
holes of columned grooves to release
beats born out of sorrows
Grief allows more grief, suffering begets more
suffering, these amorous yearnings will
Conceive more longings…
Translucent vibrations begotten out of the pits
of grief and solitude resting since decades
in those Rubenesque flutes…

Tanya, my dear, such a beautiful and meaningful write. So much in here I do not even know where to begin. You bring everything together so well: ” Those rhythms on whom senile poets pen bleeding verses… Laments of past, of present of coming tomorrow …grief and solitude resting since decades/in those Rubenesque flutes…” Gorgeously done!
Thanks my dear, I am so very glad that you liked it. I hVe always been facinated by flute and want to learn it someday. So poetic they appear, and if we can put sorrow with wind, the effect would be amazing don’t you think??
