Liquid Sky

liquid sky . . .
a steel bucket hits
the well water

kala

crevices are filled
by torrential rain

nina

the ringing telephone sounds
like a doorbell
in my dream

keemaya

the beggar picks up
a coin from his bowl

snigdha

by the roadside
blossoms swaying
beneath a nest

snigdha

all the twitter
stretching into a new language

ammu

the touch
of his fingers
makes my cheeks turn pink

ambika

silences widen
the void within me

tina

after many moons
a wolf’s cry
across the valley

alaksha

the setting sun
silhouettes the migrating birds

werner

the river gushes
as it unites
with the stormy ocean

nina

I smile at unopened gifts
under the Christmas tree

snigdha
