He and She

In an effort to understand what she meant by 'walking by the lake', he ambled along the promenade.
He saw the birds flying across the horizon, the fishermen on their boats and the children playing nearby. Nothing out of the ordinary.

What did all this mean to her ?

He noticed her approaching. With a smile. As she reached him, she asked, " Shall we take a walk together ? I want to show you my favourite place on earth."

In this tipsy little conglomeration,
Behind the curtains of oppression,
Minds in trepidation-
Is my innocence trapped forever ?

In the maddening crowd,
Amongst the humdrum loud,
Where virtue lies in a shroud-
Is my laughter trapped forever ?

Underneath this somber countenance,
A hope that promises renaissance,
Allures me into peaceful ambience-
Is my soul trapped forever ?

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.

I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.

I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
