darkening sky ...
the snake curves 
into my path

—Kala Ramesh
        

About the author: Kala Ramesh is a performing vocalist in Indian Classical music. Coming from an extremely artistic and culturally rich South Indian family, Kala believes -- as her father is fond of saying -- that "the soil has to be fertile for the plant to bloom" and feels that she owes this poetic streak in her to her mother. A proud mother of two young adults, Kala lives with her husband in Pune, India.

    very thought provoking piece kala.. the obstacles on any path are only as large as we perceive them to be. thank you .


    clearing
    a path to the mailbox...
    winter moonlight


    river walk
    the depth of the water
    between the stepping stones

    cry of a mom
    for child

    On the way home
    suddenly a black cat
    crosses my path

    darkening skies
    before twilight, falls
    a gentle rain

    morning breeze
    the curve of an egret's shadow

    high mountain meadow---
    a snake curls around
    the sound of its hiss

    I am looking out of the window and seeing a darkening sky, I know exactly what you mean. Beautiful poetry.
