Those Hushed Whispers – Poem by Megha Sood

Poetry by Megha Sood

With joyful rapture
I pressed my ears close to the
heaving breast of the mother earth
as I listen closely to the
laughter hidden in the trees.

With the crimson tinge
of the setting sun
interspersed in the oriental lilies
staying alive in the
luscious lips of my beloved

the faint whispers of the frothy moonlight
gently caressing the
serrated ends of the darkness
revealing the secrets
as the night roil in

This murky dawn
seeping through the
half-broken window
of my bedroom
moves surreptitiously
as it takes the night
slowly in.
