(26 December 1926 – 14 July 2002 / Guwahati / India)

The Gloom

Last night
Someone poured ink into Umiam
How the streetlights emitted darkness!
The whole day the sky blotted
It with the clouds.

And now,just now
Mixing the gulmar and
The golden cassia hues
The sun prepared
A tiny speck of an orange light.
