A Dab of Music … Sowbhagya, Telugu, Indian
I am a lake…
You are a gentle ripple
rollicking on its surface
bringing along a dream
In a still stony silence,
I await you without batting an eyelid.
Pray, come! let a mild breeze follow your wakes
and gently shakes your meandering tresses,
humming exotic, ecstatic tunes.
I pray! I pray!
Toss that flowing hair over me
and let me watch you as I would a starry sky.
Strange but true, I feel lighter
whenever you enter into my thoughts.
Those swaying leaves
and the butterflies that deftly wheeze past them
feel as light and waft with me.
I glow whenever you shine in my thoughts
and my surrounds spring back to life.
Like the Jasmine which anoints music
dozing with invisible scents,
and like that Rose
which empties all its grace into its full-blown petals,
Comfort this unsmelt heart
soothing with your breath of assurance.
