A Turner live

A Turner
Live in the
Distant suburbs
Of Mumbai
Encountered daily
During June-July,
August-September:
A little pond
Very quiet,
Reflecting the sun,
Muted sometimes
Or often bright,
Depending on the light,
A tiny pool
An azure sky,
And baby trees,
Standing inverted
In its green-grey
Rippling waters,
A great terrestrial
Turner
Painting,
Tucked away
From the manic highway,
Vivid,
Soothing,
And
Very much
Alive!
