Latha Prem Sakhya


Anguish Poem by Latha Prem Sakhya


A half-dead gigantic tamarind tree,
Standing near a live kiln
Seared my soul whenever I passed it.

The heat rising from the kiln
Killing it day by day.
The side exposed to heat
Singed and seared- russet and grey
The other half, lush and green,
Giving it a freaky look-
A weird tree in some ghostly fantasy.

The agony of the tree- living and dying-
Another illustration
Of the callousness of the humans –
Including me
To nature’s denizens,
Made me writhe in shameful anguish.
