Prathibha Nandakumar

(Bangalore, India)

The Yoni chakra


The three inverted triangles of the Yoni chakra
cuts across the four moving upwards
fourteen lotus petals spread around and
nothing goes out of symmetry or color

As the lines are drawn
fingers tremble and the
central point takes over
its the expectation of the mating now
that churns a storm in the lower pool

and when the churning begins
what precious things emerge
the fish reach the core of the sanctum
sanctorum and the resulting Tantric designs
when ten thousand eyes suddenly
reveal the squares, cross lines and

there you see the, hither to hidden,
two petal bud
crystal clear
opening into
a full fledged flower
