In a velvety world

In a velvety world


Silence embraced the mid-night moments

The golden sliver of moon peeps from behind

The stilled silhouette of the coconut fronds

Flooding me with a fullness ineffable

A sublime beauty spreads its fragrance in the air

Bathing me in its silky bubbles

Rejuvenating each breath

This openness in silence purging its wild water

Over my pebbled feelings heaved underneath

The night birds murmured my unspoken words

To the velvety garbed world out there

The leaves captured my voiceless songs and echoed them

Here I am floating above this wave-less water of silence

Like a swan in a moonlit-lake water, crystal clear
