Sui generisA Poem by Dinesh Sairam
That moment you enjoy something beautiful at the right place and time.
The rain goes, and with it the sun;
the light and liquid of a day
which has nothing to say
to a young girl who has just run
up to her house's balcony
in excitement to see
a glimpse that's worthy of the sound,
the muffled music of the tide,
that she'd heard from inside.
I notice her, and having found
what she's been looking for, smiling
at me from the railing.
Disregarding the dusk, which blends
the leaf, the water and the bark
into one whole dark,
the breathless admirer bends
to touch the final gold that lingers,
with her heart in her fingers.
