red hibiscus–
twirl of Flamenco
on the dance floor

in the night
a single cockerel
crows to its echo

layoff notice –
the grass stalk bends
to a single bead

storm gathers –
minnows stir
the clouds

roadside azaleas –
Siri reminds me
we’re lost

between beats
on the cardiogram –
patter of rain

step by step
up the hills –
my shadow

desert journey –
camels follow shadow
after shadow

migratory birds
across the borders –
same blue sky

new moon –
the same old bills
at the new address

autumn morning –
the temple bell rings below
a sea of mist

window seat –
the kid sketches a butterfly
on the glass

jasmine –
after every sunset
her scent

touch-me-nots
how softly they surrender
every raindrop

crest view–
the path left behind
the path ahead

old tombstone –
just below her epitaph
signature of moss

full moon –
the perfection that still
eludes me

            Kashinath Karmak

horses hooves
past the finishing post
my heart races

wattle blossom –
her hair in bunches

mum’s tired eyes
looking back
in the mirror

sunset river –
a heron sips gold

spring thaw –
the glow of twilight
on the last snowman
