Forsythia Blooms by Neetu Malik

Forsythia Blooms


We meet here again
but I am alone

shielded by forsythia
behind memories
forged and forgotten
in fields that have
seen snow and rain

lain desolate 
before seasons change
and drifting winds carry
sounds of birdsong
to end winter's silence.

We meet again but
I am alone

with golden bells that
chime your presence
as they rise from the earth
warm once more.

Yearning by Neetu

Yearning
 
I glisten in tears
like an April dawn,
 
covered in dew
like blades of grass,
 
whispering notes
like softly falling raindrops,
 
I call your name
like one who is lost –
 
listen achingly for the sound
of your answering call.

The Gardener by Neetu Malik

The Gardener

You water me 
that I may grow
lush and luxurious
 
you prune me
when my branches stray
too far out or too high
 
you mulch me when
you think I may
wilt or die
 
you nurture me as if
I’m too frail to stand
on my own
 
as if without you
I may fail to thrive
 
in truth, maybe it is you
who needs me,
to survive.

Silence by Neetu

March 26, 2019 by in category Poet's Day by Neetu Malik tagged as ,


Silence

between you and me
and the crashing
of the sea

no sound is heard
but that of seagulls
circling in the sky

drop by drop

silence trickles

lengthening each

moment

before it runs dry

Star Magnolia by Neetu

February 26, 2019 by in category Poet's Day by Neetu Malik tagged as , ,


I awoke 
to a sprouting of spring—
will you pin it in my hair?

I wonder 
as the starry white blossoms 
flutter in the cool morning breeze

I know
that they will blush
to the touch of warm sunny days
still to come

They are 
a promise of tomorrow
as it rises from winter’s long sleep.
