  Sitting somewhere
far from home
thoughts are a nagging child
in my village fair

It's summer time now back home
long summers of grumbling pigeons pecking
on sun rays in our courtyard

Do you remember then Aavantika?
when the soil broke outside to a selfish sun
and the stray wind struck relentlessly on our memory panes,
when sweat mingled on our tongues quenching
finally the sanity of a parched earth.

When our eyes locked up together, searched nooks
of rejoicing in the purdah of desires...
when my hands cupped behind your dupatta veil
held dampness on an arching sky

When I first uttered words for you that were never
really spoken,
when we tread deeply in the softness of
a filtered light and flavor from the khus curtain,
when I held incessantly to your tangled hair, untoward whispers
and tender breath touches of the half moon
hidden before offering

Do you remember then Aavantika?
that loving had always been a long summer,
wild in the countryside of our dreams...
