Resplendent Beauty




Roses and Jasmine bloomed together,

Slowly she appeared from the placid lake,


Heavenly beauty setting water ablaze,

Lustrous eyes having intoxicating gaze.


Radiant beads of water dripping down her curls,

That like dark clouds adorned  her cheek pearls,


Heady fragrance of  white Jasmine strings,

Musical clinking of red green glass bangles,


In a trance I drunk at the Elysian Fields,

Bewildered  whether It hurt or healed.


Crimson dot of vermillion filled the heart,

like the sun filling the  sky with myriad shades,


Strong  passions play like wayward birds,

Flying at the horizon of intoxicating eyes. 



What do you think?
