India: An evening in early summer [-poem-]

Copper heat
Saffron glow
Green mango trees, emerald gardens
Skies hazy from cooking fire
Smoke

Aarthi melodies
Cricket bat cracks
Chatting and chirping of birds, young boys
Delights for wandering ears
Souls

Quick and calm serenity
A purpose understood
This life is passing, enjoyed
With compassion and care
Love

A mother’s crimson mark
On foreheads, in hair parts
Reminders of a legacy, a future
For the children of tomorrow
Now

Shanti
Shanti
Shanti

Peace
Peace
Peace
