Watercolour by Pratika Yashaswi



Art by Anmol Kaur

we paint together

two boats:

trembling brushstrokes,

something for each other.

we paint love

in silence

in gifts

freeze

when I drip,

dew upon your lips.

freeze

when you ripple

underneath my skin

tingle

where the songs

begin

we trickle,

our burst blood,

our mingling colors.

we paint together-

two boats:

one each for the other

to stay afloat upon

our canvas soaked in an ocean

swelling with hours.
