For The Soulful Earth II

She is my lovely-gulmohar realm, My Indian Mansoon ballerina, My nearest everlasting Love Story, My phenomenal Indian Muse in the mellifluous air, My melancholic myth from the Milky Way, She the core and the pulse Of my everything, She is the alpha and the omega Of my sweetest universal aches […]
