fallen kite
it settles the wind
to rest

rain dripping
on the gravestone
deep silence  
rebounds the screams
of  slum orphans

Midnight moon
a cow listens to the
flowing stream

The Heart Speaks
In foggy morning
voice of remembrances
screams into the lonely sky.
The inscriptions
submerged with tears
as the old mother
gently caresses
over the tomb nourishing
the wounds  of war
of her lonely son.

Epitaphs (Eds. Kiriti Sengupta and William P Peters Sr.)

Midnight--
the old widow and
screaming wind

*****
Cloudy moon--
I dive into
my shadow

tilted mirror I repose upright

*****
summer solstice--
the long light shrinks from
my windowsill

step by step
up the hills--
my shadow

desert journey—
camels follow shadow
after shadow

migratory birds
across the borders--
same blue sky
