Plea

Puzzled
I vulnerable
Naked stark
You fascinate
In frills intricate.

Showing bits
You beguile
Intrigued
I chase.

 Fruit forbidden
You offer
Hesitantly though
I oblige.

You elude
Since then
O life
Me Tarzan you Jane!

This post is dedicated to Sunaina Sharma for prompting me to present a poem when I reach the letter ‘P’.
The other half of this post a picture of the prodigious, princely Pine is sheer coincidence..the pun was never intended :)
Thank you Sunaina for this pretty prescription!

Pine


P is for Pine

  3. hello Armit, am glad you got "in" before closing time - hope you know that the linking starts on Sunday morning? Also, the earlier you link, the more people will say your photo (just a suggestion!). Even though I live in the forest, I never get bored of them. Also, we have pine wood in our wood stove burning right now! Many thanks for sharing the trees with ALL SEASONS! Much appreciated - and have a great week!

  6. So you remembered!....Thank you so much for bringing back poetry to your blog....It was much awaited....and what good use of the prompt and the letter P you have made.....Life is like that - it enchants us, seduces us by its intricacies, by its mysterious beauties.....some of it is real, some illusion....we are just seekers, chasers....trying to fit in our 'wild' side into a more 'tamed' setting.....Are we happy? Sometimes perhaps......other times, we remain 'puzzled'......As for the pine tree, the frills and the bare bark are part of its identity....probably alluding to the emptiness as well as the fullness of life.....They grow tall too....may be we ought to grow tall too...rise above the 'pettiness' surrounding us.....Thank you once again for a very thoughtful poem.....I don't know whether all that I write hear is what you meant, but it sure is what your words conveyed to me.....

    1. Your interpretation is definitely better than the concept of the picture (I merely meant pine = longing...)
      Thanks loads Sunaina:):)
