silence gathered in both hands.
a lonely mirror is weaving the net.
an old play after a spell of love making.
the rice has got strange wings.
wild as Nataraj against a darkening cloud.
all laws, only wishes.
with colours of soft morning rain.
Outside uncertain faiths.
Keep me a stranger in the house.
From close quarters of life.
All wishes may go, but for my gentle Dulung.
