Man from the chattri [poem]

you have kind umber eyes
burnt black brown skin
both eager to know me, know love
not knowing we are not the same

I am the wind blowing far from here
not into your desert home
your space and simplicity attracts me
the sweetness in your smile, also this
but I know the machine is still running

coming soon, I say
and I beg of still water, come find me
