Waiting

Waiting

Enchanted by the humid dusky evening

The white lilies in the temple pond

Exchanged soft fragrant whispers

The big fishes swimming lazily

Heard her deep sighs

And the faint thumping of her heart

They swam across to give her company

To nibble at her toes

While her fingers drew empty circles

On the steps


A string of fresh jasmine adorned her loose hair

Swaying in the cool breeze

The large ruby on her nose ring

Glistening in the fading light

Her light saree lifting in the wind

Revealing her lavish curves

Face bent down, she waited

In the stillness of her repose

Everything blurred into perpetuity

The temple, the pond, the mountains


And then she heard the barely audible whisper

Of a familiar name, an endearing name

That only her beloved knew

Time just then became timeless again
