Summer sun
the flying crow lifts
sprinkles of water

summer noon--
a koel’s song reaches
to the lonely sky

summer vacation
the playground attains
full attendance
 *
ljetni praznici
igralište postiglo
punu posjećenost

***
dense forest–
there is still light
between shadows
*
gusta šuma–
još uvijek svjetlost
između sjena

A Story

Under the old bridge
the boulders narrate
the abandoned journey.

Morning breeze
all the flowers start
talking to each other.

“The poet brings light to darkness” created by Smita Padhy, Pravat’s daughter, on a visit to the USA.

Pravat Kumar Padhy

the poet scripts
her well-lit voyage
ripples of love
the darkness paints
gently on the silken edges

Pravat Kumar Padhy‘s tanka highlights the power of a poem to impress itself on our minds, the page and the world. Pravat is a poet-laureate in Bhubaneswar, India. His short form of Japanese poems have appeared in many international journals.
