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!
