Slender necked and perfect ears
Agile and sinewy
My white horse gently trots
Through paths paved with cobble stone
With fresh green grass that peeps in between
Though delicate hues that curves as branches
Flowers of lavender and purple
Leaves on the lighter shade of green
As the greenness of these trees part
And the sky turns brighter blue
A castle clears from the shying clouds
Perfect in symmetry
Turquoise and white
Glowing as only marble can
Tall and formidable!
Suddenly; as panes of ebony and teak, creak!
And the fragrance of cinnamon fills the cold morning air
A window swings open
A face appears!
And the secrets of eternal beauty are revealed to this mortal world!
A face illuminated by the brilliance of the light of Allah!
Elegant and doe eyed!
Full of clear blue life and bedazzling beauty!
With curly twirls darker than darkness
A form so pure
No brush can capture
Features so blemish-less
That no mortal colour can take its burden
A gaze so tender and penetrating!
Lowered now, so as not to kill the hapless beholder
As the veil of shyness falls over her face
And she gently blushes
Colours of pink and crimson shy away
As their union forms the hue of her lips
Rose and cream tussle over the contour of her cheeks
As her face glows with immaculate beauty
Shadows have no place to hide here!
Within the placid blue pools of her eyes
Lies a mind so vast and boundless as the ocean
And from somewhere within its depth
A resplendent smile blossoms!
As my horse stops and my heart leaps and churns!
Tell me oh Lord!
Is this the blissful colour of Love!
