crow’s nest—
twilight’s shadow vanishes
with early sunset

winter morning
two butterflies
warm the garden

The Heron’s Nest,Vol.XIII,No.2,June 2011
Ginyu, No 53, January 2012

full moon night
swings of shadow
steal the light


crescent moon
a feather stuck in


naked tree
the crows veil
the darkness

Richly Drowned

by P K Padhy

Every body spoke very high of him

Some narrated

As the most distinguished,

Some compared

As tall as the ancient pipal tree.

Pearls of words rolled

As pebbles down the hill.

Words of adjectives rushed

As mad honey bees.

Hills of praises were built

And the reality stream

Dried out of shame.

The welcome speech ended

With noisy voice of winds.

He struggled with

An unbecoming smile

With his frog-like eyes.

Miserly every one clapped,

He was declared “Man of the City”.

Poetry for Tomorrow

We feel proud

being descendant of Neanderthals

on the flow of time

living here, adjacent everywhere

as a part of the long human-ware.

Beauty of boundary

encircles the edge of space

We are amongst

The sun, moon and stars

at a kaleidoscopic distance.

A play of love

for entire mankind

I plant

in dream, a world of garden

full of flowers and friendship.
