Nirvana - tanka

there is a path
leading
to the cemetery
the poet finds
a new road, everyday


counting
rosary beads
without end
light fails to pierce
the pea-souper

moon god

moon god
floating in balmy silence
a pleasant breeze
cradles the cry of a child...
somewhere, a star dies

[ Inspired by the song "Chittirai Nela" from Tamil film "Kadhal".]

Madrid


i see death
in your eyes
an afternoon
of long shadows
in  Madrid


we never shied
from having bull-fights
in love
your pink fragrance
the lure of madness


Madrid sun
filtering in between
our words
your smile the colour
of chestnut candies
