prata bhramana—
bada bapa, maa ebon pilamane
suryanka sathire

morning walk--
grand parents and children
with the sun

suryashta--
pakhimane pheruchanti
dhusar chanrda sangare

sunset . . .
the birds return
with grey moon

jharaka chitrakala
chandra lajakare
parada bhitare

window painting
moon close to her shyness
veiled in curtain

prastara marubhumi
pratichayara dhira sthanantara
durbala dalara

stretched desert
gentle shift of the shadow
of a lean branch

kamala rangara surya—
sakala nabinata hoichi
suryamukhi sathire

orange sun--
morning freshens with      
a sunflower
