Playing on the flute, gently holding the instrument Eyes half closed, in a trance or a kind of enchantment. Oblivious to the presence of all loved ones around Perhaps in conversation with someone lost, not found.

The sombre glacier breaks Eons of its icy silence As a water fall,

Waiting at the harbour with a paging board in my hand, With names of guests from Australia, about to land. It was my first assignment as a tourist guide, And my heart was beating fast, filled with pride.

Times were when an auto rickshaw Drove over my dainty toes I said ouch, there was a momentary pain; Shouted and moved to the next lane.
Life In A Metro
I live in an apartment on the first floor,
With my name engraved on a brass plate on the door.
Since I am most of the time alone,
The only time I see a soul
Is when I step on the terrace,
Above my garage.
I see some watchmen playing cards,
And maids walking their wards.
