Theme: Love

Thimphu, Bhutan

The mountains galloped down today
all around me
riding hard the dragons in the sun
in an armor of mist seeking your
runaway eyes at an edge of my dream.

I grasp shuffling steps in the haze on a
Sunday morning
flea market, the smell of rancid cheese
dewdrops on your hair and perhaps a fleeting
smile when you once looked back
hesitantly perhaps trying to
locate a truant cloud between us.

It was the river flowing within
the city that finally found you
in the rampant solitude of a monastery
as my mustache brushed against your
breast in a timeless night-song.


Thimphu is the capital of the Kingdom of Bhutan. The river Wang Chhu flows within the city.
This poem was published in Kuensel, the prominent daily newspaper in Bhutan.
