The doe eyed stared with a  mysterious look
gently rustling amidst the woods
fleeing  in  the dense  forests,
as my heart gets hooked…
Long slender leaves make
a perfect camouflage
peeping from behind the blades
a silhouette of charismatic gaze…
Wondrous walk ,measured steps,
fragrance spreads as she shakes her head
in the dark sultry nights,
hypnotizing is her image…
Starry sky twinkles
as she slips on  her derriere
glossy skin radiates
spell bounded I watch
the piquant …
submerging in the ocean like a mermaid!

      1. 🙂 Dnt get confused dear about the deer! its doe eyed,but not a deer.. and slipped on derriere…slipped on her back… to slid into the waters.. as a mermaid.. 🙂

  1. A great symphony of the deer and mermaid – only if I could transform into a mermaid -who is not susceptible to human angst. Lekin — hazaaron khwahishein aisi….

    The poetry echoes serenity and pierces an awakening – leading to cathartic – beautifully, my dear Soumy. Blessing to your soul.
    p.s. shall respond to your email – had such a taxing day – want to write in luxury. 🙂

    1. And, of course, the ‘deer’ I mention is for our dear Madhu – am teasing her – all in good faith!

    2. Thank you dear for you wonderful perspective,yet again intoxicating with intensity. How beautiful are our fantasies and imaginations when the pen starts writing it never fails to surprise us..
      It is ok take your time,by the way have mailed you another one a queue. 🙂

  2. This is tangential – it can be a maiden but — your words drew more —

    I saw this as a doe-eyed deer picking her way through the brush, morphing with her steps into a beautiful maiden – then into a mermaid who slips and slips into her blue world. Witnessed — spied even — by the twinkling stars.

    Enchanting read – loved it.

    A good one, Soumya, dear.

    1. You summarized it the way exactly as I had actually perceived it ! Eventually I changed my words and lines but I think the effect still remained there only to be caught by you!
      Thanks Eric!

  3. To be honest I did not get it on the first read. Had to read all the comments and the poem again. The tube-light that I am 😦

    I just realized that this was one of the most beautiful poems I’ve read.
