Sudden Trees - Poems of Gwalior

so sudden were the trees they too searched the sky bend in groups of solitary living i who has nothing left stood within them and thought of the dried river and its soil brittle amongst stars at night did i disappoint u did i fail to answer did the sparrows wait long did i touch your hair yes and yes again and that was just not loving years after the trees grew wild and so did a blatant sky sunset a far window to your once home still remains closed.

Poem and Ink Drawing by Amitabh Mitra

An orthopaedic surgeon in a busy hospital in East London, South Africa, I actually belong to Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, its long summers and hectic politics. I edit a print poetry journal called 'A Hudson View', a journal on African arts called 'Inyathi' and dream of going back to Gwalior. My blog on South African Arts is http://www.amitabhmitra.blogspot.com/
