Attributed to Manohar. Lovers, Mughal Dynasty 1597. Public Domain

a door less hut in the remotest of the mountain villages tucked deep in the pine sea without human constructions and artificial sounds holds silence of two wordless bodies undisturbed by the piercing cold of a heavy winter

undisturbed by the restless wait of a magnificent spring

undisturbed by the determined flakes of snow quickly covering their roads back to the door opening to languages that need voices to exchange nectar

while here they lay next to each other with a silent song leaving brown eyes of the one with vagabond feet and settling forever in the green eyes of the other holding secrets of the blue hermit

whoever said language is tangible didn’t know the silent empire of lips of lovers and their eyes of witchcraft
