Ekphrasis - 11/0

Sapnon ka sheher
all sparkly in the night! 
Where is the sky?
where begins the sea? -
Dreamers brood relentlessly. 
My wet footprints on the shore
A dimple that honours this start
For a fleeting moment, I smile
The sky smiles back
with its crescent moon
The low tide advances
And kisses the footprint
A beginning blessed by water!
