You, me and the paddy fields

You, me and the paddy fields…

you, me and the paddy fields




Hold my hand and let us walk once again

through the innocent charm of these paddy fields,

and sit together on the narrow mud banks

which partition with precision the lush greenery,

hiding ourselves in this cocoon of simplicity

woven deep in the veil of nature’s beauty.


Let us watch the glorious streaks of twilight

caress lovingly the yearning crops,

which sway in the gentle breeze to the tunes of

a melodious harvest song,

and hear the lone birds loudly call out to their mates

from the nearby coconut trees.


Let me lay my head and rest my worries

on the warmth of your strong shoulders,

and let the tinkle of my bangles and chime of anklets

recite softly to you my unwavering love,

as the evening skies gets adorned in crimson robes

mercilessly mimicking the blushing me.


A sudden shower of rain then unleashed,

our desires enslaved to modesty,

and the intoxicating earthly scent that lingered

flooded our senses with passions never before known,

as the stars of night carved in luminous letters

our feelings for each other on the velvet skies.


“As much as a farmer trusts his land,

I will trust you,

as far as the waves come to kiss the seashore sand

i will come for you,

as long as the sun and moon are remembered, 

i will remember you

and till the very last beat of my heart,

i will love you”
