AtreyaSarma Uppaluri

(Hyderabad, AP, India)

Breezy Gal


The bouncy gal breezed
into the teeming train.

Hypnotised
the standing crowd
instantly pulled back
and lined up in two rows.

They cleared the way
and let her in
sweetly hoping
that the wind
would blow in generously
and waft her 'pallu' around
to kiss their desires.

{PALLU (a Hindi word originating from Sanskrit ‘Pallavi’) : the loose end of the Indian sari (or saree) that flows over the shoulder from across the bust line and dangles at the back.}

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
