Play of Seasons

Every tree unfolds its story in its own specific way. Summers, when the Cassia was brightening up the either sides of the roads and if there has been exception, it was not noticed. Come rains and I felt back into the Kangra valley only with exception that on either side of huge mountains or the ravines, these high-rise green trees seem to envelope me in mystery. A day before to library in Sector 34, the Kadamba trees lit up the roads with their flurry balls whose spikes formed a carpet beneath and this coincided with Janamashtmi (The birthday of Lord Krishna).

noon shift...
nowhere a butterfly
from the kadamba


Noon shift is all season kigo for me, a shift from the time when our shadows are the shortest and then starts to lengthen.

Echoes, my new poetry book

Echoes published by Write India is recently released in September.  It has been an amazing experience to through them once again and truly as desired they echo through mind and soul.

Here is blurb at back of book:

Consistency where life frames women in different roles and you feel inhabited.

In such serenity I sit and think saturated with thoughts.  A woman speaking of in her element perennially devises how way further will be for her without the barriers of struggle.  Nature is succour.  One easily connects with primal action born of thought. As innate as vital energy of mind and body, the poems here touch aspects of womanhood subliminally.

It would not be in woods or meadows far reaching only through echoes, it would beat deep inside throbbing and touching through aspects of life.



A Poem from Echoes:

Cold winds with those dark clouds
on my sky are my aspirations
where horizon of blue sublime,
tiny corpuscles of lime,
from where I have sprung and this haste
do I even know the melody…

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Moon and stars

moon again behind
the hills what
myth I build on my story


******

a star out of canvas
I am 
here with truth


*****

few stars in sky
and angles in and out 
can't locate more

******


only one more round
at moon hedge
full of jasmine
