Kalpurusha

Kalpurusha, what are you doing here near the hamlet rivulet
Making the bodies rolled out one by one,
In age after age
Just outside the hamlet homes,
A cluster of mud-built houses with straw-thatched roofs?

Marking ashti-kalshas hanging by the peepul tree
By the banks of the river,
The burning ghats solitary and littered with
Bamboo cots, broken and half-burnt,

Earthen bowls half-broken and pitchers tumbled down.
