Your captivating eyes
Strewn with brown sugar
Your slender ginger locks
That smell like spring
Your sensuous lips
A mosaic of glistening garnets

Woven in Assam silk
In the murals of my mind
As I wrestle with your memory
Fading like the sunset
Wondering whether to let you slip away
Or to let me evanesce
Like the ebbing tide
To join you at a magical horizon

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
