First Love - Poem by Goutam Hazra

Your smile
promissory
with secrets of life
let go my felucca mind.

Took you to beyond the deep blue sky
to an oasis of thirsty Bedouin
to a home at the jib of half moon
heavenly jasmine I made proud to your hair
and rehearsed the simple three words
thousand times to your photo
but dumb I remained
in front of you
only to say
a courteous,
“Hello, how are you? ”
