When A Lie Becomes Imminent

Rating: 4.9
As children,
we marveled at the flights of Demossile Cranes
flying hither
from across the Koshi
crooning melodies of their heart.
filed in a line like a wreathe
Before long,
they would dart away
Mother would then, tell us—
towards the mountains in Tyamké
across the hills of Urleni.

Dutendra, this is my first reading of your poetry. And what a pleasure. Fond memories of childhood. And what a beautiful experience to see them from the eyes of a foreign culture. My parents also planted cucumbers in their garden. And to this day, I truly delight in their taste. Love the whole poem. And the last line is priceless. Thank you for the write. And for bringing a smile to my face.

Beautiful poem Dutendra! It brings in a lot of childhood memories! My mother also used to plant cucumbers in the back yard! We children used to eat them raw besides using them in salads! Those good days are gone! I enjoyed the lovely diction too!

Heart touching poem! It made me think of how many farmers are not making food anymore. Or those that do struggle in poverty fighting with the banks or governments not to take their land for the inability to pay their debt. Hope is only my imagination but it seems that more and more people are forced to leave their fields of crop.. Great poem it brings awareness and thoughts of wonders. Will the world change for the better, will all of us be able to seed own tomatoes and cucumbers, live in good relation with all elements of nature such that we humans could also fit together harmoniously as necessary parts of a whole? I guess that if there is an answer for humans to live in peace and no more poverty may be in the grains of earth, thank you for sharing this poem loved those seeds of cucumbers...
