hot day
the brightness
of this room

    trying to visualise
    how the blind man
    visualises everything

    the shining window
    of summer...

    winter thoughts
    midnight, persistent heat ...
    unable to close my eyes

    summer noon ~
    mango juice honey
    with cardomn ~

    midday moon ~
    garden filled with
    alien birds ~

    chillies soaked
    in buttermilk dry
    in the miday sun ~

    shadows turn luminous ~
    a wandering butterfly
    gently aligns ~

    warm night
    shadow looms
    in the darkness
