A Glance Says All

Glowing as a lamp I saw a lone onlooker,

adorned with the flares of sun – one Gloria;

Unleashing a blaze of beauty around her,

lighted my heart’s patio with her wine aura.

Thousand arrows pierced through my heart

when I looked into the eyes of that shooter;

My life ceased to matter for me since then,

I’m moved by the finesse of my fair mimer.

Gleaming glory of that demure damsel

was accentuated by her decorous dealings;

After years I inferred that – ‘A glance says all.’

‘One’s savoir-faire reveals one’s placing.’

It was like watching her from a distant shore,

calmly sailing a canoe on the shiny ripples;

Until now, I’ve kept a storm in my fragile heart.

Never saw a peace dove in a land of ruffled souls.

Her hazel eyes were on me, her lips were sealed

it was our reticence that were in conversation;

A dialect that I spoke the very first and the last time.

All along it was neither a voiced nor a quiet session.
