The Virgin Earth
She shimmered Midnight blue Aqua green,
And glinted silver off her voluptuous bosom!
He could not but cast A covetous look;
The sly gleam-
Turning a thick haze of Poisoned intent.
More intense he grew
As his desire warmed,
and raged, and spewed out-
Racing to intercept, Devour and Ravish!
But Lo! She lay Shielded,
her grace protected-
a cocoon of cotton candy clouds
His cunning came to naught!
Lustful peek horror,
Dark blemishes found in the beautiful blue,
weary wrinkles in the whiteness of her skin,
Bald patches in the verdant green...
Was this the beauty that charmed him?
Indeed! Where within lay the rancour,
Unforgiving and ruthless demon,
Who can thus plunder?
Where nothing remains?
Scars of the scourge,
The heartless pillage of Man;
Not even the fiercest gamma ray
Could come close:
Not one is there,
as this transcient One:
This one is composed along with three other poets, Sashu, Sri [aka P.] and Leenuka. There were four different posts, and this was my contribution..:) The name of the write, I do believe is Sri's...
