An enigmatic poem by Sushmita that transcends from the personal to the universal, exploring layers of love. 


When my strained breath is relaxed, 

And my rhythm is a swing.

When the flowing breeze is cool,

And the fragrant gardenias are blooming. 

Falling rain is a gentle patter on my face,

And my tired eyes are closing.

The salty sea water is lashing at my feet,

And the small grains of sand feel caressing. 

I am all alone,

But not painfully lonely….

I know that I am waltzing a slow dance,

With the Universe.

But only,
