A River Poem - Poem by Mamta G.Sagar

Inside the river are
the sky, the cloud, and the sun.
In my hands’ bowl is the river.


If I throw up my hands,
the river spills in drops, scattering
sky, cloud, and sun all o’er me.


From my hands’ bowl, if I drink
the river, then within me,
the sun, the cloud, and the sky.


Tell me, who is in who?
