Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

The first letter of my poetry,
and the last-
and the very last word
the first, the last, the second, third, fourth
and all that follow,
all that exist
that I breathe,
all that dance, those dancing words!
the first after first, the last before last

is YOU.

      • Thank you wali madam… where’re you…?
        Pardon my informality…🙂

        • Acha if I don’t pardon, phir kiya hoga?🙂

          Well, I’ve no idea where. Having my winter sleep, with irregular wake-up times in-between. Thank you for asking.🙂

          • Then, I guess, I would have to write you another poem… I’m sorry… I don’t know any other language…🙂
            Is it bad to confess, that asking of you was a selfish act… I wanted to interact and have your feedback…

          • Being honest couldn’t (shouldn’t) ever be considered bad.🙂
            I’ve read all your posts, from those management tips to groceries, and Annabel Lee, but I guess I’m too out of words to come and appreciate your superb skills. But be sure that I soon will.🙂

          • I guess I always do and would continue to… appreciate
            and eagerly wait for your next “honest” announcement.🙂
            I hope current winter’s cherishing you like an old bracelet.
            As first sunshine of the day, caresses the face like a warm velvet.
            (my apologies…)

          • My God. Why do people have to apologize after every nice line? Thank you anyways.🙂
