Skies Folded

by Venkat


Skies I folded, into my heart
Yet clouds buzzed, as bees do
Till a love poured, of new tastes

The Sun I rolled, onto my mind
Yet shadows curled, as creepers do
Till a love bloomed, in new shades

Seas I sealed, in my silver cup
Yet winds peeped, as owls do
Till a love uplifted, on new waves

Mountains I chiseled, by my hands
Yet chills fell back, as dusts do
Till a love grooved, in new shapes
