I can’t get the image out of my head!


This poem is based on three extremely famous paintings by Masters. Easy guess, I believe...would you like to name those famous paintings and the artists??? :)

I can’t get the image out of my head!
As I lay under the blessed night sky
Watching the multitude of twinkling stars
Beaming on the soft rippling waters,
(feeling uncertain to look above or the one below)
Breeze rocking the docked boats
I lay there smiling
At the eternal gods
Thanking for the wonders that
Surround us!
The blue enveloping,
Whites and yellows transmuting,
Beckoning…
I lay there for a whole new world
To unravel!
Inspired by the romance
In the air
The couple partook in a kiss
Magically the mantle emerged
With two passionate golden figures,
Ornate in their garb
Oblivious to the world
Immersed in love!
While that heaven lasted;
Seconds may be…
A shrill shriek gorged
Amid the varying warm and dark hues
Red and more red engulfing
The echoing beat of the heat!
I lay still…
Trying hard to manoeuvre
To lay still!
While the images encircled me
From far above and deep within!
I can’t get the image out of my head!


This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.


Blogadda has asked for a story that begins with "I can’t get the image out of my head" but this is what came to my mind...so just thought of jotting it down...whether it is valid or not am unsure, yet I am linking it! This is the first time I am writing for WOW though. :)

Deepa its a beautiful poem in itself and to know that you have riddles in it is like kudos to your writing skills !
I am unable to name the masterpiece/s still I am trying -
One of them is 'Scream' by Edvard Munch I guess .
One is The starry night by Vincent von gogh
And one is perhaps The Kiss ...I dont know the artist's name dear ...
