The Grass is Black/The Air is Pink

Spring at last! The amuyas flare,
half-opened, trembling with bees.
A river of shadow flows through the grove.
I’m thrilled, dear trusted friend,
shocked by this pleasure-flame-
am I not a flame in his eyes?
His absense tears at me-
love blooms, and then spring
blows the petals from the world.
In my heart’s grove the cuckoos pour out
a bewildering fountain of pleasure-drops,
jewels of the universe.
Even the bee-opened flowers mock me:
“Where’s your lover, Radha?”
Does he sleep without you
on this scented night of spring?”

How I got my ways…

You are currently
a mystery
to me
secretive
like a late summer breeze…

I’ll kiss your shadow
on New Year’s Eve
and you’ll hold me
tightly
as the ball drops
the old year burns
like a phoenix
and then the new year
emerges from the ashes
with a new digit…

I am currently
missing
from my life
I’m just a
ghost of myself
writing this poem
and drinking tea
while the real me
is lost in time…
I’ve never aged
which is why I look this way
I’ve never spoken
which is why I sound this way
I’ve never cried
which is why I feel this way
Tell me,
can you help me
change my ways…?
