Glimpses in Yellow…



icteric glow
of streetlight winks
at jealous moon
hung high and distant,
when enamored moths
dance in its radiance
assuming it to be moon,
forms a chiaroscuro on
asphalted bosom of
winding gravel trail.

frangipani in sunlight1

petals of frangipani
in sublime are dappled
a sunshine yellow
by nature’s paint brush,
as though a firefly
was casting its fluorescence
on snow-white corolla.


moths of vagrancy
humming serenades of love
in Vertumnus’ carnival,
with wings fringed in kohl
and splattered in
yellow polka dots are
Cassanovas of spring
flirting with blooming flowers.


sunflowers smiling
jubilantly in cascading tequila
of a summer day are
the eyes of unrequited love
gazing mesmerized at
their oblivious beloved,
wearing a corona
apparently of sun-flames
on their brown heads.


yellowed pages of
old, dogeared, moth-eaten diaries
with scribbles of age-old anecdotes
faded from fragile paper,
and with pressed rose petals
of some lingering memory,
are reverberations
from alleys of forgotten past
revived when pages are reread
after the passage of time.

yellow autumn

autumn in her pastels
of variegated shades has
many shades of color yellow,
speckling faces of leaves
once a garrulous verdure with
strokes of an array of yellows,
for in fall leaves seek
to masquerade as petals
with soft cinnamon scents.
