That Reminds Me Of You

That Reminds Me Of You

You come to me 

 

Not in scripted pictures of the mind

 

Rather, in unanticipated flashes, all day.

 

Maybe all night.

 

If I dream. 

 

 

 

Flashes, that are mundane

 

That the commonfolk dismiss

 

With a wave of passing days

 

And rusted, faded concern. 

 

In careless abandon. 

 

 

 

You come to me: 

 

 

 

Like the soft gleam of dawn 

 

In thoughts of dewy grass 

 

Or tiny purple wildflowers on them

 

That you carefully skirt, 

 

While I walk beside you. 

 

 

 

Or in a sudden craving

 

For sugar spun roses at midnight

 

Because I don't know what semblance

 

Would be more befitting

 

For your lips. 

 

 

 

Or maybe when I see a soda can 

 

That you meticulously throw in a bin, always.

 

Or a pristine white marble slab

 

Because it reminds me of your plectrum.

 

That makes magic. 

 

 

 

Or when I come across red chillies 

 

Or spiced popcorn, or a packet of buttermilk

 

Or molten cheese or heart shaped boxes

 

Even a muddy puddle when it rains. 

 

We both know why... 

 

 

 

There are so many things 

 

That I want to point out and say 

 

"There, that reminds me of you, too!" 

 

But that'd take a lifetime,

 

And beyond. 

 

 

 

Because with you, prosaic turns phenomenal. 

 

Or maybe, it's just YOU.
