Like the incomparable colour of the Venetian canals, this pale and optimistic turquoise that the eye endlessly photographs. Like something gold that surges forth to light up everything else. Like an antique and floral cross, returning from the depths of time. Like the treasures found in a forgotten chest.
Like a fantasised city, a romantic and exhilarating destination that we carry within or on ourselves. Like a marvel emerging from archaeological excavations and for which we experience an unexpected joy. Like the incredible and indestructible links woven between the world of yesterday and today.
Like a christening medal that proclaims our being. Like a radiant future that skips round our necks. Like a time-honoured symbol that shelters us. Like the glorious links of our never-ending dreams.
Like the simplest and clearest of offerings from India. Like a discretion that is far more seen than we imagine. Like the drops of dew we contemplate there at dawn. Like the pearls of rain that refresh the heat of the day as the sun starts to set.
Like a toy straight out of a child’s imagination. Like the tangy-hued erasers in the pencil case of a future artist. Like nature’s own stained-glass window. Like marbles, full of freedom.
Like the barcode to a good mood. Like a happy necklace placed as a gift in the palm of your hand. Like the newest arrival in a family, fawned over by all. Like little nuggets of optimism to say how we see life.
