Why ?

why-1.jpg

why did the night renegade at your whisper

it had grown wild since in a

a dusk of shuffling memories

at hauz khas , behind the old mosque

you suddenly grasped a sunshine sparrow

and the muezzins azan while

looking at me

why did the day renegade then ?

    Nice depth and bold colour. The structure of the paper makes it look like acrylic or even oil paint.

    Thanks Richard, being a hand made paper, its texture provides natural spreading of the color and therefore the final effect looks and feels different.
