I.N.D.I.A.N H.A.I.K.U

Indian waterfall listening deep to my inner voice

New year’s eve
her rangoli patterns
our street

Distant hill
a river carrying
the spring

Ice box
your last word
resonates in me

Autumn evening –
each tombstone’s shadow
joins the next grave

November moon
I feed my child
and its shadow

Hanging bridge
the pot water wobbling
on her hip

Autumn sky
patches of twilight
in the falling leaf

In the aquarium
stillness of the goldfish
autumn dusk

Kite sky
the clamour of children
fading with it

Uphill walking
she takes me into
winter clouds
