The tranquil facade

camouflages fissures deep

masks the peril of 

a rupture or fault, at times

a tectonic drift!

Forest Fire

Wildfire

A raging forest fire
Since the past few months
Burns the green cover
In the state of Uttarakhand
The worst of its kinds
In the recent times
Natural or motivated?
Several theories transpire –
Combustible chir pine trees or
The greed of mafia and lobbies-
What stoked the fire
Remains yet unknown
Meanwhile the disaster spreads
Agony unfolds

Curved antlers, round spots

shine bright on the velvet skin,

The delicate doe 

nibbles in the meadow at

smallest sound ready to spring!

Frosty Beverages

By Somali K Chakrabarti

Beverages

In the sweltering summer heat
How we pine for a cool retreat!
Some savory cold drinks
To beat the scorching heat!!
Frosty beverage treats
Punches and Smoothies
Topped with refreshing cream
To bring in a wintery feel !!

Watermelon, lychee,
Strawberries, tiramisu,
and apple tangy green!!
Now, what are we waiting for?
It’s time to rush in…

Where?
