Ancient Lights

written by: Gopal Lahiri



blood moon giving
a morsel of words

earth probing the
invisible border line

smell of wet grass
warmth and warmth

painting the new twilight
on the graph broadside

holding the winter evenings
on swollen palms

cold winds snigger
against the old mirror

old city searching
ancient lights
