Sunny Morning

mr-1071

Sunny morning:
a snake slides through the fence
looking for a prey

Full of silt
the Ganga overflows:
snakes under the waves

Raises its hood
a cobra in water:
algae criss-cross

Searching reason
in the labyrinthine pattern:
snakes in courtyard

Avoids searching
mushroom in the crowded green-
snake on the fence

Searches thorn apples
to propitiate lingam:
snake in sanctum

A snake’s tail
coils round a sweet
in the box

Smells a snake
in the wet grass-
her smile

Rises with tickles
between the thighs
the dream-serpent

A yellow snake
slithers on the grass-
dewy trail of love

Climbing high through
rough pathway and stony cold
a green snake

A snake’s dead skin
near the fence:
she stands unmoving

Another Year

Well, another rotation around the sun. I found myself very busy with life this year and could not find the time to post as much as I have in the past. Who knows what this new year will bring?! Happy New year to all my readers and may you find yourself in the beautiful, surprising and seldom traveled nooks and crannies of the world! Cheers~
