The Snapdragons

The sun burns the sky. The steps

crush the red of the leaves. It’s an

incomprehensible mystery in the

structure of the leaving green. The

sound drums the holy bell of light.

It’s an unbearable restlessness in

the structure of white. Red and white

snapdragons smother their preys.

    An adroitly crafted short poem ; circumspect with overtones of the idyllic suffused with hints of a fiercer Nature in alluding to ,”burns”,”crush”,”restlessness” and “smother”.
