Spirits bloom in your grooves
A flowering yard on a floating  lake
Silk-soft petals alight here
Regrets of an autumn’s downcast  leaves
Dulcet, your flamingo-red beats
Green lagoons, my eyes span your  skies
Lissome, lithe, langourous
My seasons yearn for unending  rain

A bramble corner waits
a forgotten dirt track ends
And there  bloom my pretty celandines
Nodding shy yellows brush past a dream
There is  a songbird in your bush
like love tiptoeing on rain-misted feet 

Come  under the trees; listen
while we kiss this earth into silence
Insistent  bumble bee, duck into her folds
stroking her shyness away
as you reach the  whorls
Your thirst is her ecstasy 

A tango slow in buttercup  heaven
Hold precious this innate dance
The twirls, the curves, the heaves  of the fall
swirl within unwritten poems of desire
Two circles of joy, a  grave till springtime
Love remains an evergreen celandine

-Reena Prasad
(Wishing all the Destiny Poet members a blissful Valentine season.)
