The Taj Mahal
shows best at dawn
From a distance
With the camera
just so and
the millipede of
human existence
forbidden to go

Held back


Up close
reality is a
weathered canvas
A study in decay

Reality Check

Hariprasad Chaurasia’s
melodic bansuri
filled the room
Rag Lalita the tune
Names and terms
foreign to many but
I assure you the
sound was quite sweet
until the Medivac chopper
roared past
near to the house
yanking me back from
the precipice of peace
with its harsh reality
