what does she know of butterflies
the moon flower who blooms in the palace of mirrors
with a thousand kohl-smudged eyes

  1. Hmmmmmm…..unique in style and perhaps content too. Mesmerising, even in just three lines. So rich.
    Masterful in detail. Resonates as brings back so many memories of the ‘Middle East’ (and areas around it) for me.

    1. Thanks Hamish. There are some fine examples of “palace of mirrors” or “Sheesh Mahal” here built in the 16th/17th century by the Persianate Mughal kings who ruled parts of India. These are beautiful pavilions/ halls decorated with inlaid mirrors… I hope that sets some context!!
