At 59 Years What I Remember

I remember a few blades of grass,
I remember white flowers of drumstick,
the afternoon rainbow, reflected images of hibiscus,
the full moon of kumar purnima
I remember yellow kaniyar flowers, white lotus,
a few big rain drops,
a few duststorms
I remember a few distant thunder, mridanga beats,
the sweet morning ten teian song,
I remember long calls of my brother before lunch,
I remember fragrance of marigold, malli,
fragrance of colour on Lord Ganesh, Maataa Basuli
I remember pitha sweetmeat 'mandaa, fish spiced and tamarind
I remember exchange of love glances,
glances of appreciation,
I rememebra few soft touch on me.
I remember the rendezvous with soul
in a dark night under a starry night
alone in a meadow

****tentenia is a songbird who sings very sweet mostly in foggy morn
