H. D. - Sea Rose

Rose, harsh rose 
marred and with stint of petals, 
meagre flower, thin, 
sparse of leaf, 

more precious 
than a wet rose 
single on a stem -- 
you are caught in the drift. 

Stunted, with small leaf, 
you are flung on the sand, 
you are lifted 
in the crisp sand 
that drives in the wind.

Can the spice-rose 
drip such acrid fragrance 
hardened in a leaf?

Dream girl by Mukeshkumar Mafatlal RavalHad I been a birdI would have flown in 360 degreesand seraehcd you in every breeze and cloudat every cliff y or treetopat every river ,pond or at hill slope.Had I been a fishI would have looked for youin sea weeds,on sea moundsor in the conchs or in tiny openings of shells.Had I been a deergrazing green green grass,tasting the Scottish dewor sipping the cream of the highlands;I might have found you under the shade of Olive treesbut nowhere did i findyou nor your shadow.But if I were a mirrorI would have gazed youin my smile, in my tears,resting under the coolness of my winks,strolling in the pink valley of my dimple
