Evening Dream

With your ardour
In that green valley
You raised your hand
To the evening sky,
I remember too.
Looking two glazing stars of
That silvery evening,
Two cormorants were
Swimming in the morass
Chewing the verses
Fearing nothing.

Keeping aside
The  gloomy darkness,
I was talking with my
Poetry of cosmic green
Who was grazing in your bosom.
Her rude face and
your blue costumes
searched someone
In broken words.
The  wan pink spread
silken perfume
On her  cottony body,
My poetry fell in the bog
While you came close and closer,
The evening dream of
Blue and  pink
Became pale green.
