Autumn In The Rain

Poem By Ram Krishna Singh

The faces appearing
and receding in
dark of closed eyes

don't answer why
they aren't winged souls
fading in the sun

I emptied before it set
in the gowns of girls
stopped from dancing barefoot:

they shake autumn in the rain
mist blurs the image
water spills in shady pool

Comments about Autumn In The Rain

Lovely imagery. And quite expressive words. Anjana
Lovely imagery. An autumn mood expressed in a most subtle yet provocative way. Excellent work, R.K. Kindest regards, Sandra

The river flows through the woods
grown in Banares in centuries
down this terrace they say

Song Of Songs

I'm true in my element
begotten of earth
hungry to mate with sky:

Death Of A Song

In the stillness of morning
hangs fog like smoke veils
her waiting in street


At the end of the day
when I look back and see
my knowledge and insight
rusting with ageing colleagues

A Tribute

The world is too big
& my share seems so small
thank God my name’s alive
on the net they can find
