Haven Extraordinaire by Antara Banerjee

When the sun shines

with mellow kindness,

and blue butterflies

hover around fragrant blooms…

coral reefs reflect

vibrant hues across crystal waters…

soft splashes of frothing waves,

lull me into a rosy reverie…

A rainbow moment

tiptoes out of the

strict regime of time…

as an ambient sky smiles down upon me…

velvet petals of a roseate dream,

lilt upon the limpid pools

of my slumbering eyes…

Whispers of sensuous tales,

misted with primal desires…

waft over my skin…

A season of perpetual spring

alights on the frilly satin

of my blushing bed….

Elusive chimera of diaphanous forms

flow around me like angels…

touching me

with a delicacy infinite…

Could this be the budding

of a new genesis?

My soul sprouts visions

of a haven extraordinaire,

a sanctuary

of endless indulgences…

an elegant transcendence,

whose whereabouts

are privy exclusively,

to my enraptured soul…
