when you laugh

when you laugh
it is like rain on parched soil
long after you leave
I waft in the aroma

Hi Khuto,
welcome back, this was evocative!
I could almost smell the aroma....
cheers!

Very nice. Reminded me of WS Merwin's 'Separation':

Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.

Welcome back - and you sure came back with a bang. Thatw as beautiful! And that was a long hiatus!

Anon - Thanks for posting that verse - damn nice!

Somehow "I waft in the aroma" seems incorrect - the aroma, I would think, wafts, not the person - is this poetic license of sorts?

Thank you dear friends for noticing my absence in this roiling effervescence that is Caferati... yes I had dropped out for a few weeks - was working on my book The Unsevered Tongue (এখনও জিশ্বা অটুট), a bilingual text of translations from Bengali women poets. Anyhow it's off to the printer now, so I am back. Check out this page for some samples:
