Best Poem of Kathup Tsering

Train's Window

I sit silently and gaze out the window of this slow-moving train
I catch my breath, as my eyes land upon the angry, Indian Ocean

Memories bring storms rushing towns, wicked winds stealing homes
Children swallowed in your churning, for you can muster no mercy

My mind recalls trees weeping for death, as relentless rains fell
Washing away precious life and love, as the earth was transformed

Destruction and devastation surrounds both you and me, dear ocean
No peace nor safety exists to bring the welcome site of a sailing ship

I Hold My Candle

Silent foreboding behind prison's door
shadows of the willow scatter across your pillow
rivers of tears do not wash away the darkness
I hold my candle to shine Light on your soul

City's haze blankets your high plateau
foggy mind allows clouded thought
love seems to have forsaken you
I hold my candle to shine light on your soul
