Theme: Love

Music and Muse

Pillows of silk, sheets of white satin
A world of lights and colors,
Of precious spices, exotic fruits
And music.
A world of joy and merrymaking
Behind the Rana* palace curtains
In Kathmandu.

I’ve learned the mystery of love
And buried my face in her lap.
Penned poems in the white heat
Of passionate moments,
Till she cried in ecstasy:
‘How wonderful.’

*Rana: The Ranas were former rulers of Nepal who usurped the throne of the Shahs. Nepal is a republic since 2008 headed by a Maoist Führer named Prachanda.
