Mandira Mitra

Equinox girl

Fall-winter girl,
Sparkling, wise
Words trail off
Fashions capsize
Kinesthetic, her eyes
Evoke snowflake moments
Of past mall-winter skies.

Dysinsomniac

Worlds hum slowly in my sleep
I drown in dreams; their shadows deep
Like gypsy women’s ancient art
Lull an ischemic heart.
Birds are restless tonight,
In degrees and not in kind
And Fukushima and Dai chi
Are just structures of my mind.
Myriad greens have waylaid me
To Plato’s land of forms
Conspiring wickedly
To throttle sympathy.
I too had my share of storms.

Yet Another Shower

To warm urgent winds
Stroking insane minds
Thunder and rumbling in sky
And ocean, come rain.
To grimy Krishnachura, Sal, Sundari

To broken-wing linnet
Limping mongrel cowering in pain
To ants queued up back to front with grain
Come rain.
To throbbing city streets
In startling sheets
Entreating oblivion
Come rain.
To Ivy, Honeysuckle, Red dead nettle
Azalea, Great mullein, come rain.
To fields, cornstalk, hay, scythe, sugarcane
Cattle bound by wild hawthorn terrain
Come rain.
