Oindri Sengupta Poems
I have given up dreams, to make seasons from my blood. They will rise up from my body like lost souls on the Ganges,
Lost In Thunder
Forgetting the yellow clouds The mad woman walks over the rims of river Collecting pebbles lost in dreams. She has feet of ceramic and hands of golden wax
I have given up dreams,
to make seasons from my blood.
They will rise up from my body
like lost souls on the Ganges,
and walk on the streets with beggars
lighting a fire on their walls.
Shades of neon in all the moments of twilight
capturing lights of the other days
