Oh Ruby Flames – Nithya Mariam Kurian

Oh! Ruby Flames, you mesmerize by

Your golden beauty,

With what you consume,

And you rule where you stand;

Embracing evil and innocence

With those flaming hands

To your burning heart and bleeding amber.

Burning into the depth of darkness

You bring light and life,

Warmth and care, sacrificing yourself

For those praying souls.

With no fear and no care, you

Flow through the deepest oceans too.

Hiding in the care of mother earth’s chest

Dangerously still is your interest.

Virtue or vice, none matters,

For you hold, the wisdom of centuries,

You burned down barns and thick dense woods

And even countries by your strength.

Held in your blazing self,

Love and lives, hate and betrayal

Beauty and deceit, rage and vengeance,

You could never be stopped,

By grand walls, giant gaits or hades on guards.

You bow to none and as no king could be

You are an unbiased executioner:

Great warriors’ and lords’ dearest destroyer.

Earth holds no limits, nor does heaven,

Chaos or even hell at your name,

To your might none could match

And you heed to no reasons:

How I wish to be held in those ruby hands, till

I dissolve into you, to the eternity’s end, still!

  1. Thanks Nithya for the experience. The wild beauty and might of the “unbiased executioner”, its dynamism, power to transform etc…. all have been beautifully sketched !
    Themes like death, fire, snake etc creates a strange feel in human minds… fear on one hand and allurement on the other… fear because it can destroy, and allurement because of the beauty of creativity and truth that they hold. The weaklings look away but the gutsy ones are fascinated by it, and falls in love with it………..”how I wish to be held in those ruby hands, till I dissolve into you, to the eternity’s end, still!.
