When you came

(903)  Tumi jakhan esechile

When you came
The moon was full.
Playing peekaboo with the moon
Was the motion of the clouds.

Nebulae of the distant sky
Were drawn in sandalpaste.
One newly arrived swan[1]
Had forgotten the way.

So many moonlit nights came and went;
The seat of my heart remained empty.
With the sound of your footsteps,
My heart was filled with moonlight.
That swan came again;
He recognized the path and took it.
