Gemini and Scorpio

entry picture

There’s a scorpion

In the lavender field,

And my Gemini heart

Has dived too deep

Into the world of purple.


I’ve been told that

There’ll be hurdles,

That things could fall apart,

But I don’t mind being stung

By a living piece of art.


She makes me feel complete,

Like the field embraces the feet,

Like the romantic air that surfs

Passionately on the ocean,

Like I’m infinity and she’s the one.

I like this. It doesn't feel contrived. And the internal rhyming of 'purple' and 'hurdle' is smooth. Yes.

"Like the romantic air that surfs
Passionately on the ocean"
What a beautiful line.

Superb poem, Manish, and likewise the previous poem about the solitary sandpiper. Poignant poems.
