Widow - Poem by Kanishka SricharanPratap

Wiped away the vermilion
From the forehead,
Wiped away the lac-dye
From the feet,
Broke the bangles
From the hand!

In untimely storm
Under the fathomless heart
Burns the funeral pyre!

Fallen
Not yet fallen down,
Connected the stem
Too a little,
My incomplete life
Of half a dream!

Where do I float?
My tears
Are seven seas!
