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.

    Classic Aithal!
    Enjoy his work very much for its pictorial nature.
    Linguistic freshness.
    Keep on—delighting us on this great site!

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