Second Spring

By Atri

Let it be a dream
Let it be a trance
Let it be just an intoxication
This moment, even a microsecond of this ecstasy
Is enough to consecrate my life forever
What more would I ask?

-------- ------ ---------

Yesterday it was some unknown ache
Today it is still that fresh heartache
Like the koel’s call in spring
Let the music go out from the heart
So what, if the throat is hoarse, raw?

(As a gift to a very special friend who gave me a
fountain of inspiration, who brought lyricism and
music to my poetry)
