I love kissing your fingers
you know they ooze love i alone can see
love drips from their tips
like drops from slender blades of leaves
i alone can see
they extend towards me with those unseen messages of love
and innocence
you know how they became so long?
in search of love,in order to love
they extend towards me like the benign branches of a giant banyan
when i touch them
when i kiss them
your sensitive fingers
i feel the unique ecstasy of the concreteness of love
they look dipped in love
i alone can see
your finger "tips" !!

Your EYES,
when I look into,
are from history
your autobiographical eyes
your childhood,
your love
your hunger for it
your luxury in love
your magnanimity in love
your tenderness
back and forth
your froggy eyes

I love your EYES
how they hide many words
open my heart
how they make me human
your EYES

Just keep looking at me
into me
Let me too
Let's love
and be human

Wow!! what an incredible phenomenon
Its miracles many have i seen
how it heals and seals
everything is invested
every word
every wound
time keeps a cave of light for the lost
the gropers in the dark
and a wind for the flames of now
a clap for the bent heads to lift up
a lap for the bruised
a slap for the brutal arms

you and i, dear, have to wade through its waters

It's time !!

ആലിംഗനം (AALINGANAM)

ആലിംഗനത്തിൽ സംസ്കൃതിയുടെ സൈകതങ്ങൾ ഉടയുന്നു
കാരിരുമ്പിന്റെ കാമ സ്ഫുരണം
ആലിംഗനം ചെയ്യുമ്പോൾ
കവചങ്ങളും, മറകളും, മുഖം മൂടികളും
ഗാഢാലിംഗനം ആത്മസ്ഫുലിംഗനം
അശരീര നിർവൃതി
ശരീരത്തിന് ശരീരത്തെ വെടിയാൻ തോന്നുന്ന
                       --സന്തോഷ്‌ കുമാർ കാനാ
