Ram Krishna Singh, India

Yellow lemons

still hanging after the storm

sunny backyard

***

sun rising late

slow arrival of winter

feverish warmth

***

weaving webs

between branches and leaves

autumn spiders

***

fit of sneezes

no winter allergy

thinking of sex

***

fingers feel

decaying fireflies

in lamplight

***

white light

dressing off her shoulders

musky scent up

***

prayer book

covering the glass—

his last drink

***

noon sun-

yellow blouse

on her wet back

***

brightness

straining through the trees:

tea in full moon

***

waking up

gloves ready for the catch-

unclaimed light

***

forever

a vanishing guest:

loneliness

***

unlockdown:

fractured biorhythm

deity distance

***

Sunday’s lunar light

shining into the deepest-

my shadow self

***

stands behind the door

in pleasing nudity

a woman in hurry

***

I didn’t want to stare

her derriere lacks

definition

***

resting

in the cleft of the rock

honeybees

***

float over the hill

the autumn circles of smoke-

her long hair streaming

***

a quick brush

with snake in the fence:

plucking flowers

***

December dusk

firy cleavage on roadside

breathless coalfield
