The Golconda

beyond the fort’s wall . . .
rice harvesters' songs
of long ago

angelee

coughing bouts punctuate
the watchman's stroll

paresh

as the rain falls
the cobra’s coils tighten
around her eggs

raamesh

flocks of sparrows
fly over a swamp

sathi

ripe fruit falling
into the lake
break the summer moon

shabbir

passing clouds
usher in the malhar

surya

sitar notes
caress his beloved’s
flowing tresses

gautam


the door shuts quickly
behind the smiling couple

seshu

I sense
a shade of emerald
in a bush by the stream

neelam

butterflies
in a burst of colours

Cheryl

over a meadow
birds in flight
split the sky

surya

the orchid leans
into the new year

kala
