Coconut tree

coconut tree

Blue satin
Stitched with white lace
Spread far and wide
Resting against blue sky.

White sand reaches out
To feel its satin touch
A solitary coconut tree
Stands tall, looks beyond.

A green island far away
Covered with tall coconut groves
The ocean wind plays messenger
Shares their stories.

As it comes rushing across the sea,
Teasing, creating waves and ripples
To softly ruffle the trees
And share his stories.

Stories 7.09.10

Waves come
Waves go
Wind whispers
Stories and tales
Fables reach out
From the land
Reaches the ear
Of ocean waves
Coconut groves
Whisper words
In the ears
Of rushing waves

A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And if you want fb you can go to my page, linkedin- my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)

      1. West Bengal! I researched your province on the Internet and see that West Bengal is a province of India and that it is in or near the Himalaya Mountains. I am just blown away! What beauty must surround you there all the time. Blessings to you… I don’t think I’ve ever seen a coconut tree.

      2. a little bit of it touches Himalaya, but the mountains are not as gorgeous as Kashmir or some other provinces. But our state is green, full of greenery- a real blessing for eyes.

  1. I could see myself on those white sandy beaches with coconut trees, wearing no shirt all day long and just shorts….cool evening breezes to enjoy a roast and melt while watching the sunset..I want to go so bad Golden Lotus of God’s Love…you have magic in your poems…

    Love, 🙂

      i love coconut water very much but not the pulp. bengalis are crazy for that pulp, they add it to every thing. 🙂
