White Desert – Bhuj

The sun takes its golden dip.

Full moon splashes snowy glow.

Spellbound by the artist’s grip.

The cold winds whistle and blow.

Deep, beyond the vastness spread.

Shrouded by a salt carpet.

The pinch of the desert’s bed –

offers to tickle us wet.

Cheers echo as mugs clink.

Our silhouettes watch us drink.

    The line ” Our silhouettes watch us drink ” crowns a deftly nuanced and deceptively textured work.
