When your lucrative smile
dazzles on the gypsy grass
being a dot ;
I wait for dawn
you descend 
with bulletins of enigmatic draft 
tinkles your benign audacity
my being dances in the tune 
dew drops of eternity 
proceed towards my soul
This collaboration paints 
the eighth colour of the rainbow
and sings the Anthem of ecstasy
I feel your arms around me 
the dot extends
to be your circle 
 climax echoes in the ether
I wait to surrender my solitude 
and join the perennial stream 
 you open 
my nose stud
I become 
your bride for ever ...
