The way she looked backhellip How can I ever forget The simmering dress, within which she was all wet Like an angel descended from heaven, Or perhaps Snow White accompanied with dwarfs seven. The light rain and the road filled with golden maple leaves, We trotted beneath the trees in the pre-monsoon eve. How gracefully the rain hit her on the face, And she wiped it so gently with grace. Like a dove wiping her beak on its back, She too splendidly did without a slightest lack. Taking her hand over her head she motioned it clean, And then set her hair behind the ear, like a queen. We crossed each other face to face, Like galaxies moving in space. So fascinated I was with her simplicity, And so was she equally pulled towards me like elasticity Both looked deep in the eyes, Those resembled the deep oceans and the infinite skies Like the fixed pupils of a tigress, Looking deep at the deer with hope, joy and calmness It spiked our hearts as we passed by, Like a person with a dagger pierced, left to die.

She smiled and laughed, then blushed and ran, And turned back again and againhellip From the end of the road she gestured a bye, Like a peacock fluttering on a rainy day under a rainbow so high..
