The Lost River

Rating: 5.0
At the Triveni Sangam at Prayagraj,
I had a problem I could not solve -
I did never find the Saraswati river
Merging with the Yamuna and the Ganga.
I have spent years asking myself why.

Recently, at Siddhpur near Patan,
I stood on the dry and garbage littered bed
Of the once wide Saraswati river.
I did not know this river at all.
It had stopped flowing around 2600 BCE.

Misguided,
I was looking for the Saraswati river,
At the wrong place.
