Spark in Your Eyes - a Poem

Author:

Rinita is a creative writer, with focus on poetry. She delves into several forms including Haiku/Senryu, Sonnets, Free Verse, and Prose.

Background

For once, I am not explaining my poem. This is an "As you like it" poem.

Sparkling eyes

Sparkling eyes

The Poem

Dew on a rose petal

Sunshine on the sill

A merry tune in passing

A cloud over the hill


The spark in your eyes

Mystically glows along

Shadows of the flecks

That the gleam beautifies


Wind over the ocean

The wild exotic Eden

Gulls flying low and swift

Chastity of a maiden


The spark in your eyes

Sets ablaze all sin

Glitters turn to gold

As the flame never dies


The path to paradise

The touch of an angel

The rising ceremony

The flute of a miracle


The spark in your eyes

Leads me to the light

Of a blissful eternity

Where a soul never cries

I don't know why that impulse came to me but I had Lucinda Williams doing the vocals. Way too weird, I know.

That's a very interesting comment cam8510! As I read your comment, I tried to rap those lines I wrote above!!!

Thanks for reading, have a nice day!

Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on August 21, 2012:

As I read this, I was remembering going to a poetry "reading" and being surprised. The authors were also performers. They "read" their works, but often very aggressively. Reading yours, I found myself reading it almost as hip hop or rap, with and aggressiveness. That may sound strange, but it fit pretty well for me. Thanks for sharing your poetry.

Rinita Sen (author) on August 20, 2012:

Thanks again Shruti. I am glad you feel that way about my poetry.

I am reading all your poems and I am astounded at its simplicity and yet it has such deep meaning...

The spark in your eyes

Sets ablaze all sin

Glitters turn to gold

As the flame never dies
