Aesthetic Negotiations


Ways of looking
The clouds chasing
each other in the
pre-monsoon Mumbai-sky;
damsels, dark hues applied
on the fair cheeks
gamboling lightly
in that high vault!
Shadows are not
moving geometric lines cast
on the walls or moon-lit yards
by the objects and matter
always within and without
accompanying them or not
but soft dark outlines carrying creature souls inside
those mystic circles that are seen dancing
on lonely nights.
Eucalyptus trees—summer afternoon
Two eucalyptus trees
tall and elegant
leaning-whispering-bending in that meadow
kissed by a playful summer breeze
like a pair of lost friends
united unexpectedly
and talking intimately
in an Asian bazaar.
