To Kalon

I rarely notice her beauty,
That's one aspect of her I never fantasize.
She speaks like a gentle breeze,
And when she does;
My heart and soul synchronize.
I dived into her eyes once,
That day her fingers touched my skin.
Hypnotized by the mystical chords,
Seemed as if;
On my skin, her fingers played the violin.
I don't crave for the contours of her body,
Though, it's like molten silver in an hourglass.
Pouring the liquid of adulation,                                      
If I'll do;
My golden love will look brass.
There are a thousand things about her,
But I don't want to be lost in the noise.
Swaying in the ocean of her words,
I'm in love with her musical voice.

*To Kalon means 'the beautiful' in Greek.


  1. oh my gawd!

    Though, it's like molten silver in hourglass.
    Pouring the liquid of adulation,

  7. There is " kalon " in all of us. It depends on how one carries it.! Isn't it enough to say that life is beautiful because we are created beautifully by our God.

  8. There are thousand things about her,
    But I don't want to be lost in noise.

    "...molten silver in hourglass... My golden love will look brass..." You use simple words in a way that will convey deep emotions...

  11. This one is just "laajawab" Saru.

  12. And I feel it is a perfect excuse. :D

    Though she's hot, it's actually the coolness of her aura that fascinates me, no, I won't mind having her for a lifetime, though she's more than a fortune to me :P

    A melodic and rhythmic post in praise of a chiming voice.

    Beautiful post, and lovely use of simile in comparisons :)
