Are you there

Jasmine buds blossom

to the call of the brilliant morn

As if to ensure that the beauty of

the precariously positioned Shabnam [Dew drops]

is not missed during the day

As the Sun chooses to give respite

to the seemingly endless toil of the Man and the Worm

The Night Queen exudes her intoxicating

fragrance to compliment the translucence of the Moon

Day or Night the Mother Earth strives

to fill beauty and fragrance to our dreary lives

O’ Man, are you there to taste, smell and see

the glory of the Sky, Land and Sea
