Gopal Lahiri writes


Images are soft, 
Tiny, striking oriental dwarf, 
Riot of tall grasses.

Skies open up,
The wide eyed blue bird
Exchanging morning lights

Beyond the lonely clouds,
A web of gazes all round -

Studying you in pin drop silence.

Long shadows fall on the floor,
On the mossy wall of the terrace -

You can see it.

Branches kiss the glass window
A steady breeze rinses your hands,
Wraps the sourness of your face.

If you look up -
The long neck of the heron accepts
Defeat, seeking now only the escape route.

All I want to see
The natural order.

We never knew what the baseline is.
