Just when

Just when he was about to kiss me,

A soft wind blew gently

And the candle’s light was gone.

‘In the darkness, kisses are sweeter,’

He whispered in my ears.

I was slowly being transported

In the world of love.

I could not reply.

I was almost fainting in his arms

While time was slipping like sand.

I could feel the sensual ecstasy

Of a poetic adventure, explorer of love,

Tasting the juice of love.

Like the Cedar tree, evergreen,

I looked at my wide spreading branches,

So close to the cherry blossoms,

Performing their secret ministry.

The moon was in her full splendor

And music was reverberating

In all the cells of my body.

I listened to his gentle breathing

And looked at Picasso’s cubist paintings

That bewitched me beyond measure.

We were in a thatched cottage

In the lovely valleys of Cashmere

Where the vibrant colors of Spring

Danced in the darkness

With a complacent smile.

We went out to feel the rain

And feeling the rain,

We got wet with love.
