Of Distances

Posted by Nishana Minhaz (Calicut / Kochi, India) on 23 May 2012 in Plant & Nature.

When night came,
A baby moon
Laughed sideways in the dark...
I laughed back...
and thought:

Halfway across the world,
Your sky
Is filled with the same
Golden laughter,
And hoped that you,
Twinkling eyes....
Saw and heard,
So that somehow we three
were joined in our gladness,
Each in our own space,
Together apart,
Distance meaningless.

And I slept
In a world
Full of smiles ..

How do you find these beauties? When I see it here in this pic, it is perfect. Like it was waiting to be clicked by you. The bright pink framed against a deep brown wall with a slight trace of cobweb here and a curled up petal there. But I'm sure had I seen it myself, I wouldn't have given it a second glance! :) I'm going to steal your eye Aana. Ye *aankh* mujhe de de Thakur!!
