Seduction

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

Come to me,

When the river
of Daylight
is at its ebb,

And I will show you
How soft
Darkness
can be.

Here
in this
Deep forest

Where yearning shadows
Fall
into the
open arms
of the suppliant earth,

Where the yellow eyed
Jaguar
Stalks the wind
with velvet step,

Where
wildness is
sanctified,
And humanness
is holy,

I offer you this wounded
hand,

Come with me
And I will show
you the
fire
that burns
without smoke


The branches
where the little spider
weaves love
from out the womb
of midnight,

The way
the naked stream dances
As she dreams of
the cool fingers
of the ocean

Kiss my skin

And I
will breathe you
in
to the soul
of the music
I hear

I will search you
till i find the places
where you are
aching

Lie down
with you
by the shoulders
of the fire,

exchanging
pleasure
for brokenness,

While the drum
beats
on

Into the
endlessness

Oh, dear Maithri, how deeply captivating is this?! You are seduction personified!

And you know what? The Earth is sighing and ready to be seduced by you, one of her most beautiful sons.

Going to read it again ... once is never enough with you.

Love and deep appreciation.

Beautiful...as everything else you write Maithri.

As footsteps shies the front,
preferring the wake to decorate,
my life i pray,
