Heart That Resounds


With you on my mind
I had traveled the timeless streets of Kathmandu.*
Away from Kathmandu
The waterfall falling with
The alphabets of your name,
The hill that made my mind balanced
Like a surface of eternity.
I had seen a valley covered with
Dazzling lights from the hill,
The air that was too costly since then
Has no more been a cheap remedy.
The sea is my dream,
The rain has sunk me deep
Outside these borders if I travel
I would again raise your kingdom.
Yes, this is a hope with new petals
Maybe this time the color is miraculously new
Like a wet paint brush shining with novel shade of color.
I am a barrel of time,
I am a dead clock
That is felt correct twice a day only because
Heart was pure and it still is.

*Kathmandu is a capital city of Nepal.
