Unwritten Poetry

When the full moon

cascade it’s Icelandic grace.

A palate of sublime humming

fondle my core of being in voiceless notes.

In numinous silence the ripples of hymn echoes

as my silken desire etch in remnants.

In seclusion my perennial longing surrender

to embrace the bouquet of rhymes.

I inhale its harmonious breeze

fragrant with unsung verses.


Though as an uninvited guest

the web of chaos rampage and force  

to swirl in the whirlpool of life

refraining from nurturing its sweetness

thus breaking the strings fusing symphony.

With a sigh it fades in distant solitude.


Despite as a fetus,

I listen to the exquisite lullaby

creation of womb sings solely for me.

I cling to the space with nostalgia

resigning copious human excuses

to access the serene river deep hidden.

It flows from its pure terrain with elegance.

I lay still with amusement and smiled

when the passion of droplets splashing all over

whilst browsing virgin imagery in its waves.


With an inborn quest I devour for an indulgence

to chase for precise words to embellish my emotions.

In the musing I compose you to gift a mystic guise.

The iridescent smile of my soul rejoices for consummation

to complete the unwritten poetry in oblivion.

But loquacious silence conveyed the irony with a smirk.


And I with a dalliance of my dreams of ” Unwritten Poetry ” is yet to be born…

    This poem religiously attempts in synchronising the swirls of the resonance of poet’s heart. As George braques had said ” Art is a wound that becomes light ” and our aspirations of “unwritten poetry “drives to throw light thou in any form. A mesmerising enigmatic piece, may be a commendation to poetry on behalf of all the poets.
