A Thousand Sunsets

the year passes . . .
longing for cranes
to colour the sky

kala

the withering wind
chills my bones

aashna

the pressure cooker
whistles
and wakes the puppy up

prachi

sunlight streaming in
through the window

adheip

coconut trees
swaying to a warm
airy rhythm

chakshu

hammering rain
turns my white dupatta muddy

tanvi

***


his hand
tries to shelter her
from the onslaught

priyanka

a thousand sunsets together
still not enough

vividha

a cicada keeps
the full moon
company at night

arnaz

the dragonfly creates
its own tornado in the mist

ranaita

a blue-eyed girl
jumps and cheers
the singer breaking his guitar

soumitra

my heartbeat slows down
as I take a deep breath

Shreya

***


the puzzle complete in winter seclusion

harsh

drunken dinner parties with the family

akanksha

I don’t remember the sound of shoes

dipalika

looking for acorns the squirrel twitches its nose

samanvya

a sea of dandelions stands still in the pasture

bhoomika

my ears fill with the flutter of butterfly wings

nikita
