Yamuna

I walked past you today

Oh, pregnant river

 

You were in the earth

Where I used to tread

 

Sinuously swirling

You called out to me

 

Enchanted I stopped

To take a look

 

Swollen, full

You almost seduced me

 

In the yonder

I saw your mate

 

I decided to hurry

Past you

 

But you linger on

In my memory

 

Oh wretched one

I know your games

 

I belong to you

I know that, don’t you

 

But I am not ready

To be a part of you

 

One fine day

When the sun will shine

 

I will tread gently

On your loving waters

 

Unafraid that your hungry belly

Will consume me

 

You dangerous one

You will want to drown me

 

But I will be ready

To swim instead

Untitled

The colour of sunflower

Turning into the blue

Of the sea

 

The vast open sky

Suddenly turning asphalt

 

Grumbling like an

Empty stomach

 

I can hear you

Coming my way

Before I can feel

 

Soaked in the water

Of your mighty vastness

 

In the zephyr

Beneath your wings

 

You can destroy me

If you want

With your ferocity

 

But then I will

be free

 

Feeling you in my

Skin and my soul

Poem inspired by the Delhi weather as scorching heat suddenly gave way to rains.
