Poetry from Sayani Mukherjee


Amidst cherry pines

And dewdrop smiles

I knitted my waded path

Full of allegory

Rich and sumptuous

It rose around the Globewarm sun

The confetti lays bare

The sea grew tired

The blue butterflies wore

A ravenous hue

My aching music and symphony

Of lost leaden islands

The earth’s new cicades

The upward sun

The swan’s long journey to the West

My blueberry garden

Full of rose thorns

Sublime ecstasy was fought

Around the globe

For it was a merciless plight

Into the endless warmth.
