Any fresh day when she sees me
there is a smiling moon floating
in her deep calm eyes.
A full moon, jumping out from the dark clouds
like the dancing dolphin of Arabian sea
like the sensation of hearing
a soothing voice for the first time,
like the Goosebumps erupted
on the back of neck on first kiss,
like the gasp of fresh air
by a drowning damsel,
like an adorable baby
who still expects her mom to feed her
long after the breasts forgot the scent of milk.
