The oranges and the yellows
Of the sunshine
The melodies of the cuckoo and
The parrots on the line
Walking barefoot
On the green grass
Anklets kissing
The dew drops
Chasing butterflies
In the garden
Collecting match boxes
Just for fun
… all remind me of you , my love !

Falling soft upon the fields
The rain…sparkling…tinkling
Jeweled mango leaves…
The endless flights
On the tree swings
The paper boats
In the puddles
Those doodles
And the riddles
… all remind me of you , my love !

The happy colours
Of a sari
The mysterious folds
Of a pagri
The ringing bells
From the temples
The stories and
The fables
The joys
Of the festivals
The memories made on travels
…all remind me of you , my love !

Paradise …
In your skies
Rustic smell
Of your soil
The warmth in your cool,
Whispering breeze
The embrace of the morning mist,
Oh ! …eternal bliss
The spectacular seasons
The beauty that beckons
… all remind me of you , my love !

you belong
To the entire world
I can truly sense
Your divine presence
In my little heart!
I sit here…miles away
My breath inhales…there
Your light…my love…
My India

Through my eyes !!!
