Whispers of a Celestial Treat with Ashok K. Bhargava





Dew drops form
then fall
only to gradually form again
deep in the dark woods.

Fireflies flash their lights
then hide to shine again.

Dreams, embroidered in
silk-thread designs
shimmer like fireflies
evoke
sweet memories
                                                                           revoke to evoke again






Celestial Treat

Your thumbs
hard pressed on my neck
move down
kneading my spine
skillfully relieving
tension.
With a firm grasp
and a sudden jerk
you weed
the tough roots
of my knuckles
to a painful relief.
Your palms
rub my soles delicately
stimulating sensations
as I lie down on the floor.
The moon gleams
through the window
your shadow falls on me
bigger than you are today
or you would ever be.
