But now…

From something that I was reading again...

What She Said

Before I laughed with him


	the slow waves beating

	on his wide shores

	and the palmyra

	bringing forth heron-like flowers

	near the waters,

my eyes were like the lotus

my arms had the grace of the bamboo

my forehead was mistaken for the moon.

	But now...

One thought on “But now…

  1. nice !

    this is, and will remain, my favorite..

    What He Said

    What could my mother be
    to yours? What kin is my father
    to yours anyway? And how
    did you and I meet ever?
    But in love our hearts are as red
    earth and pouring rain:
    mingled beyond parting.

    had posted this in my blog long back.. sigh!
