Gone with the Wind

The moment between the look,

After the romantic hook,

The attraction, the admiration,

The deep, deep eye to eye appreciation,

The heart and soul immersed in total admiration,

And the admiration leading to a palpitation,

Of a hundred miles per hour.

And says, ‘I want to be your friend, paramour.

Ok special friend, this very hour’,

And the passionate heart thumping

Turning to a longing.

Oh! Why this social distancing?

.

When the sky continues kissing the horizon,

The kiss of the zephyrs in unison,

Emit in me blissful happiness.

The kiss of reminiscences,

Boost my ‘happy hormones’

Invading my heart and soul delightfully,

Making me desire so longingly,

Those kisses of farewell,

Which are like the tolling of life’s last bell.

Oh, those briefest of times,

Surely will shake me innumerable times,

Like a tsunami my heart throb, my love,

Gone with the wind, this heavenly gift from above!

    This could read be a tribute to the eponymous movie or as a life experience of the narrator of the poem , or both.
    ‘ Happy Harmones ‘ is an inspired misspelling of ‘ Happy Hormones’ ( endomorphins ) since it suggests that the concept of harmony too was in the poet’s mind .
