The girl desired to have a delightful sky
The boy wished he were the king of the clouds
The kite connects the hearts in the air
Reality pulls the thread.
The boy washes dishes in the shop
The girl sells flowers in the street
They live on fragments
in perishable forms.
Life is an immortal spectator
passes by the scattered sketches.
Time keeps on writing the prolonged essay
with a lullaby in the dim light of the hurricane.
A dragonfly flutters in the dream
The girl is decked with glowing stars in her zenith of joy
The boy bags a foamy mass of buttermilk sky
Sleep embroiders fulfilment.
