The Y2K Love Story

a poem by Divya R

The spring that I enjoy,
the gentle scintillating breeze,
the enchanting blossoms,
and that lonely swaying branch.
My thoughts wandered,
my heart reverberated to that day,
the same spring and it’s
crown of glory,
the two love birds that swayed,
with the branch,
with the breeze,
adorned with a smile,
I looked at them at wonder!
Each caring for the other,
away from the world,
showering love and tenderness!
Divinity floated in the air,
dreadful was the night,
devil of the earth,
man had his eyes on the pair,
shot one for his meal!
Her whole world died,
the moon of the night clouded,
he was taking the heart which had
fused into one,
the heart lost,
agony! the pain of separation,
not an afforded thought shared.
A few pearl studded tears,
fell wetting the earth,
frozen in the cold of the night!
I could read her mind,
her longing,
her feeling,
her love blind folded,
the heart beats…
and there was I beneath
the branch,
the time, the hour she fell into,
my hands
purity in the love,
the whiteness,
I cried, the nature…the blossoms,
the clouds…
the one who thinks is in light had his meal,
not allowing them even to meet in heaven.
The tree sheltered,
showered the priceless blossoms,
the natural pall,
a decent funeral,
not for the eternal love shared!
They took her aloft
from the hands that couldn’t protect!
From the day, the second,
spring lost it’s enchantment,
and that lonely swaying branch…
and there alighted again,
an eternal pair of love birds…
with the nature…
carved with the essence of sanctity!!!
