A Brown Poem

It’s a brown poem
that I write tonight
immersed in the ink
of your hazel eyes
brown is the shade
of my sublime words
and brown is the tone
of my subtle dactyls

the cadence is brown
the accent is brown
brown the assonance
and the rhythm is brown

the brown caesura
the brown elision
brown is the ellipsis
and refrains are brown

aglow by the touch
of your bronzy skin
the sense, the essence
and the gist is brown

brown are the feelings
brown are emotions
in the cascade of your hair
my verses flow in brown.

    1. Hi, Aquib ! Thanks for the read. Hope you enjoyed it.

      Haha….yeah, I am promoting brown. The poor colour has for long been too neglected.😝

      Chocolates…yes, I have a bit of a liking for them, but not to the extent of being a cannibal…lol !

                    1. Well, then it’s fine according to BMI. You are just overweight by about 2 kilos which I am sure you can easily lose if you stop being as much cheesy as you’re now. 😝


                    2. So you did the pains to go through the BMI chart!! Unless it is hanging in front of you… which means you are a gym freak.. which means.. you might have a body which may put me to shame.. which means it’s good to meet good looking people in WordPress.. u won’t feel like balling up and crying.. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚

                    3. I am simply amazed at how quickly you tend to draw brilliant conclusions based on your logical understanding of every single comment of mine…..most of which, if I may say, make absolutely no sense to me. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

            1. Hey ! I am better now….was down with viral fever, throat infection and cold. That’s why I was out of action all this while. Thanks so much for asking, Ankan. 😊

              Trust you’re well. I am sure there’s a lot for me to catch up on your blog. 😁

    1. Thanks so much, Aalekh ! That’s so very kind of you to leave such generous words of appreciation. I am so glad you took out time to read my poems and found them worth it. I must also say that you’re a brilliant writer and I look forward to reading more from you.😊

      Also, please excuse me for this much delayed response. I have been away from the forum since past some days.

      Take care and keep writing !

      Cheers !! 😁

  1. Wow. Interesting poem. Brown is the new white. But not as bad as white was. And yeah I agree with you that brown has been neglected for a very long time. Colours…and politics.. Sigh! But what a fast paced poem and I simply loved it. It could be a song.. And loved the way you played with words here.. Someone studying linguistics must really enjoy this. β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️


    1. Oh wow…that’s a great news my dear friend ! Please go ahead and share it with the one. Do let me know how he felt about the poem. I hope he likes it. 😊

      My best wishes to you !

      And much love !!
