To willingly desire the undesirable –
the tuft of feathery leaflets,
unblossomed florets of passion,
warm silent goodbyes in january.
To willingly delve into the unknown-
trails of a nomadic fragile woman,
savoury taste of pelican meat,
pleasure of an aromatic flower,
the lingering kiss of a stranger.
To willingly carry you with thyself-
into the white sand desserts,
through the green meadows,
amongst the ferry ghat cocophony
passing the woods of piercing sunlight
To willingly live, to willingly breathe, to willingly dwell in each other.
