LOVERS on a veranda with shamisen

Still I recall her, Golden as a wreath of champaka flowers,
Her full-blown lotus face, Her slender line of down, her limbs confused
By passion, faint from passionate embrace,
I recollect her as she rose from sleep;
Like knowledge carelessness has failed to keep…

Bilhana; the love thief…

LOVERS on a veranda with shamisen

a meeting of eyes…

the lotos rose, quietly, quietly…

a meeting of eyes…
