WORSHIPPER

scratching his groin a worshipper offers food: the flattered deity in flowery garbage, holy water, incense and sweat --R.K.Singh

FRESHNESS

FRESHNESS



The withered leaves
blown in autumn
come again with the tired rains
the season confers
through the soft grey clouds
the growing freshness on naked trees

HOPE

HOPE



among the white hairs
solitary black one
keeps her hope alive

EMACIATION

EMACIATION



I am an image
they secretly deride
in the classroom
mental emaciation
bridges the gap
that feeds a teacher
to teach another

RACIST

in perfect accent
they discuss finance & 
foam with color
at the dining table 
smell stale beer 

--R.K.Singh

DROWSILY

rises drowsily
after a sleepless night
a sick sun

--R K Singh

FROG

a yellow snake sneaks
 through the blooming balsams bed 
a lone frog puffs up

--R K Singh

NIGHT

NIGHT

night washes the sky–
the sun brings morning freshness
to my window

HAND IN HAND

When the sea is still
& mind is wingless
the shore & moon one:

we walk hand in hand
crossing horizons
hugging surge of time 


--R.K.Singh
