I love the dreaminess of this piece..like candy savoured and loved.. always a pity when we hit a bitter bit...
A letter is really so rare, isn't it? When a person receives one it definitely does bring a rainbow of happiness.
what sharp contrasts you weave here.. chocolate and pain - thorns and dance... love them a lot.. sharp as a knife
smiles...love can be the most wonderful and the most painful thing...ha...i rather like the last one...the line break before letter is awesome....
beautiful mixture of immiscible things!
silk like embraced thorns inside...how much it hurts! The pain of love and putting up with appearances.Well done Arathi.
rainbow of happinesscouriered loveLetterYes, it used to be letters on snail mail. But email still serves the same purpose! What is important is love is extended! Wonderful write Arathi!Hank
love all the sharp contrasts specially the last two...beautiful lines Arathi....
love def. has both sides... the sweet and the bitter...and that makes it what it is..
I liked the 4th stanza particularly; for thorns, stickers, burrs can be infinitesimal, yet still perceived & felt. If love is the common denominator in the universe, as I believe it is, it makes a fine host for your impressive response to the prompt.
So unexpected, very well done, smiles ~
The balance in this is well played!! Great write!
I think the tilus is a perfect setting for your poems. The stark form sets off the contrasts well. See, now I can't eat dark chocolate and not think of pain. :-)
I tasted every single one of those words.
