Soul and the Sky

When the mountains
Echoed your name
I was a whispering wind
That carried your
Memories with me.
When the river flowed
With your dreams
I realized you were
A waking reality.
There is
Pleasure in pain
Only the passionate heart
Waits to know.
Be a colorful
Momentary rainbow
Which amazes every heart.
Be the pouring romantic clouds.
The sky is a canvas
To exhibit your true colors.
The night displays its intensity
In stars and diamond like luminous moon.
You are my beating heart
A temperate art,
That carries the timeless attire.
When I imagine my art
I draw your true image
In the crevice of my soul.
They say soul is formless
But I find you as a relief
Like water fulfilling
Thirst in any shape.
