any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
A tale of love and sadness.
I love the words you play with here, especially in the last half. Nice work!
Wow! This is a great response to the challenge, Sumana. It remains faithful to to original in narrative voice, but the issue of captivity you raise is your own - and so topical these days when we hear increasingly of animals being neglected and abused in these prisons.Have you groaning with shards of dreamMake your heart burnOn caged nights...
beautiful Sumana!! I loved the reference to Sunderbans... Cages are not meant for these dreamy wildness !! i wish we knew better as human beings!!
Whew! What indeed? From such vast connectedness to the little cage in which together you can speak. How would he answer? Force, I suspect.
Bravo! I too wish humans would let animals be free~ Your poems has so many wonderful lines~ Wonderful and such a powerful write~
This is written so tenderly...you bring forth the questions that people need to answer with grace. Excellent response to this challenge, Sumana.
Wonderful--wonderful. I have a friend who visited Sunderbans, but though I've visited India a few times, I've not been there. Very cool, sad--one senses the heat and sadness. Thanks. K.
Alas, such tiger's fate in the zoo....~ nice talk.
… truly makes one think.
