Blank board we together saw
The board as colourless as a drop of rain
Weightless but with embodiment of hope
We yearned for colour and brush but didn’t see
Seeing the potential in the blank board
We made a part with earth to aid us
In giving life to that, which already has life
Taking myself as the shaman
I proceeded with the incantation of life
At first, it was a still life; with a blink, I lost it
I concentrated and behold a landscape 
I clapped out of ecstasy, only to loose it after all
Twice bitten is foolish
So I hugged my heart and 
Every thing was made clear
I didn’t have to conjure the art after all, we have it
As clear as blue to bee 
We saw the colours, the brush and the art
We painted blue sky to show our love 
The love that will live for eternity
With the birds flying as our spirit
And the flowing river filled with purple flower 
In reverence to our royal ever flowing heart
And through the eyes of the moon
We are seen entangled in love 
With his mouth close to mine
In a boat of fruits anchored at the centre of the river
Alas! That’s how we painted our love
