Oh Poseidon


Oh Poseidon, divinity of waters, king of all seas,
I’m born from sea foams
daughter of Zeus and Dione and I love thee with my lust
below the Ultramarine sky…
Are you listening to all, those drum beats of waves
of my heart beats?
Does it sound a loud reveille, over your bare chest of blue?
Or a frail weeping wind
blow across your cliffs?
O Poseidon, my sweet music
Pour sunshine on your foam, to raise me from your ripples
and thus Aphrodite can lust…
Love and lost in your
Unfathomable depth in deepest passion
When breeze whipped my hair,
Erysichthon in you,
tear me into pieces…
I wept in your envied eyes
O my Poseidon,
Your merciless waves, rose in high and in fury
raged my shores, shattering
Cliffs into lustrous sand…
Fill me with blue of Atlantic,
In my veins, beneath my skin run through,
Untouched soul my heart, leaving no desert
drown me in depth till my
Cold pulse lay dead…

About Rekha Moothedath

I'm a teacher by profession, hailing from Calicut, south-west coast of India. I was brought up in a huge joint family, a home in lush greenery and a mile away from the sea shore. Being married to a defense personnel, has enabled me to travel widely within India and once made me write a poem on the great Andaman islands. I did my post graduation in History and I do research papers and have published a paper on medieval Indian feudal society, in the International History Congress. Sometime in the late nineties initiating a life time love with Latin American poetry I mustered up all my passions in writing. Though my head fought battles and spoke peace, poetry was always a deeply embedded part of my soul and I was enamored of her beauty and traveled through the emotions of tempest and silence and overcame the desolation.

    This composition is different from your poise signature style. Enjoyed the aggressive, powerful and vivid Greek imagery. Kudos Rekha!

      Sorry for the late reply Maaya. I just noticed your comment now. Yes tried a different style, as I love Greek mythology and is fascinated by it. Thank you for your kind and encouraging words.
