Over the hill…

For long, over the hill thrived a mystery unsolved
The universe, you and me tangled in a crystal maize
We gazed and bled as though eyes could pierce our souls
Unspoken words wrote poetry and made unknown melodies

It was that day when the hill welcomed love and sadness
I stared at you, the train tracks and the horizon far away
It was that moment when the hill silenced the rabbits and deers
For us, to be drenched in love, the hill guarded us
When the evening stood placated and blissful
When your hands moved gracefully like a “Shilpi”

Let me walk with you in a lush green meadow, I said
Let us freeze like a Victorian vista on the wall, we wished
Let the painter in me spray life’s colors on you, he mused

Red,   when I blushed while you asked me why I was late
Green, where the pastures with dew drops where I danced
Blue, was the sky so pale as though it felt my longing
White, would be my gown for the last time as I give myself
The colors exploded into a rainbow over the hill
Life stood still deflecting colors through my tears.

The empty bench covered with dry leaves
Was waiting for me and you to read, be melancholy
It rained in my heart like monsoon in my childhood
The magic was there, it was you, me and the hill.

Let me see the bright sky and your eyes in unison
Let me lie here stoned by the fumes of your voice
The silence broke, the hill woke us up from a dream
You ran like a little child chasing the deer cub merrily.

I knew not then, as I laid there in the grass smiling…
