THE LIVELY DREAM 

someone who comes quietly, in the 
silent night, writes some wet
message on the window 
glass by finger tip, 
in the melted 
emotion 
some beautiful affinity creates the 
the image of your blooming
love, filtered moonlight 
through the lacy 
leaves of 
gulmohar tree searches the refuge,
on the  verandah, I often look 
your aesthetic existence 
on that illusive design,
with unclouded 
beauty and
delicacy
of glassy sculpture, the wakeful 
night snatches my persona,
perhaps it exchanges
with you, in the 
rhythm of 
pulsation I find your presence into
the form of sodden, nocturnal
fragrance of tuberose,
in late night the 
melted
vapor of window panes becomes 
the lively dream - - -
