In a paper I read

About the beauty of language

A famous scholar said

About Sanskrit

That it described things perfectly

Such as

Nipal asam

“As softly or silently as the falling of leaves.”


It made me think of

Leaves drifting through the softness of time

Like a sigh suspended in the softness of space

It made me think of

The soft cocoon of your heartbeat

A language of beauty

For mine.
