TIDE by Jagari Mukherjee

My passion glows
With crimson tints
Mixed with blue desire –
The blue of the night sky
With a moon shining
Like a firefly.
The tide of the sea
Over my body washes
Leaving crusts of sharp salt crystals
In the roses
To set me free
As the scarlet and gold
Of the setting sun
Shimmers like a satin dress
Over splintered me…

And what about you?
Trying to put the splinters together
You cover yourself
With the moon and the sea.
