mango blossoms:
sprawling at every turn
childhood memories

—Kala Ramesh

In India --
mango blossoms early spring

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.

    On the roof of a turn
    some flowers knock at the sky gate-
    spring afternoon
