betwixt and between
Aparna Jan 15
betwixt ivy-clad cinder walls
seamless, infinite darkness
leaves aligning,
tendrils twirling unbeknownst
whilst syphid wisps shadowed
tangled wilderness
nightly haze conformed
as sombre forms arose

;
real as it is

she incurs the rigours

on her own in a void

far removed from rationality;

out of her element


esoteric whims float in and out

of her headspace;overruled

inexplicable visions,holographs;

phantoms from a past

seemingly remote

overshadow her mindscapes

adieu 2020

vernal wisps
Aparna Nov 2020
been a-while

spring abridged;winter night

each layer of snow colder n' heavier

earth lay frozen and I frostbitten

icicles of gloom

lining my chest,eerie chill creeping

heart benumbed;slowly melting

basking in apricity,duly warmed up

awaiting spring

anew
let's just hope for the best✨

Floresta[when it rains]
Aparna Oct 2020
rain mist wreathed
virid groves
of evergreen
sun languished
behind clouds grey
overcast sky
lachrymose;
distant rumble
thunder;brontide
pellet-laden gusts
of wind;cold
leaf-stirring
nubivagant drops
falling
glistening foliages
rustling;
celadon leaves
rain-washed
brushwood damp
galore humus
dewy silence;
gerful downpour
incipient

anguished
Aparna Sep 2020
through diaphonous blinds

radiant sunlit boughs

high noon;

restive breaths drawn

in palpable pain

balmy wind caresses;

disquietude loud

as sparrows chirped,

hints of perspiration

upon delirious forehead

crystallized;

she fell asleep

as calescence spread

waiting for pain to abate
period

cramps got me thinking

❛That's the thing about pain,it demands to be felt❜

With you
Aparna Jul 2020
Take me to the sunflower fields
With you;to that chaotic little town
at the edge of the sea
With you,to the flavescent moores for a stroll
To that ancient shrine with idols abound
Take me,to the windy seas on a sailship
To that kawaii Japanese cafè round the turn
Take me to the vintage cities and cobblestone streets
To that souvenir shop for a statuesque keepsake
With you to the mausoleum,so austere
Wreathed in silver mist
To the lovely riverside as night falls
Take me... With you
To the top of the green roof of your house
With watermelon popsicles and ice

With you,
       For a kaleidoscopic journey.

Red leaves
           fell silently
Under the maple tree
           by the lake
Where we met  
Last autumn
           Late September;
When the maple leaves
             turned crimson
       you made me
blush just like
those scarlet leaves
       That day ...
                                    Autumn came early,
                                  Why don't you,too...?


            Winter's on the way
           Are you, too?


Where are you...?

             Wafted in,

Curious, I mused,
how curious
Rain,reminiscence,renascence
A reel of past,winding roll
Into the present

And then,it dawned on me
sometimes,
rain awakens memories
sealed by flowing time.

As rain fell,drops dripping from the blue roof,rippling pools above gravel and pebbles,I journeyed at length,retreading roads of memories ...Times that passed, all that transpired, everything...unfolded before my eyes.
And I unravelled the present ,through this wondrous journey:))

Stars fell, like rain
And I clung to the moon.

You looked up just in time
To see me floating with the moon.

Every night, I look up at the stars,search for the moon...and have an inkling of what it'd be like to be up there among them✨

Amber Flames
Aparna Jun 2020
'Twas fading, slowly...
your face turning
into a bleak silhouette,
exquisitely melding
with the dark plane,
where your languid countenance
had once burned ablaze...
But, your amber eyes
never dimmed,
Luciform flames rising
Awash in the subtle glow,
Something deepened within.
In your eyes, my frame
A butterfly in crystal amber.
Byzantine wings suspended
In star-thistle nectar drop.
And I let the amber flames consume me🔥
amber eye-fetish💛

Rain;eventide;
Ever so slow, a drizzle
Misty leaves,drenched earth
Shaded yard, wet stones...
Quietly, I snuck out into the evening
Broken slippers,potted plants,

Below ashen skies.

...Mizzle...
Aparna Jun 2020
The rain fell, delicate as muslin
heavenly threads, coming undone
From pearly gates of paradise.
Weaving fluid intricacies underneath
The grainy sands, grooved with drops
And canopies laden with silken film
Dewy, with crystal orbs suspended
A diamond mosaic radiant
Under the ashen gray clouds.

Crystalline drops clung
Onto ends of leaf blades
Forming a grand chandelier
Hundreds of them hung
On slender boughs
And the tree stood
An embellished crown
Bedecked with clear dew
