Dear Tamizh,

This one's for you.

As I roam the endlessness of my imaginings

Words bloom and scent the air.

And my language comes to me

Like the silent pleasure of a sigh.

I wait, as if in penance, for words to come

They come, as promised;

Infinite rain clouds

To quench the thirst of a lone sapling

In a pathless desert.
