the fog
starts burning--

summer clouds--
gentle shadows of

Morning dream--
an owl stares at me from
the hanging cloud

I search
my moon all the way 
horizon of hope
offers solace in the midnight
rekindling vastness of the sky

Pravat Kumar Padhy,

I painted
throughout night
my memories
of grief and anguish
remain as patches of white

Pravat Kumar Padhy,

autumn morning
all my wishes fall apart
some drains
into the meandering river
rest blown before I could gather

Pravat Kumar Padhy,

the spider
rides up and down
on the mirror
I readjust my face
picking up the shinny hair

Pravat Kumar Padhy,

thin moon
in the hot summer
the nest swings
catching darkness

Pravat Kumar Padhy,

the train
whistles to start
I carry her
memories till I reach
the stretched distance

Pravat Kumar Padhy,
