paper boats
along the levee—
new diary

de-a lungul pontonului—
nou jurnal intim

first rain
a poem arrives
word by word

ಮೊದಲ ಮಳೆ
ಪದ ಪದವಾಗಿ ಹುಟ್ಟಿತು
ಪದ್ಯ

foreign land—
I sense the breeze
of intimacy

bidesh jaga—
mu anubhaba kare malayara
ghanisthata

autumn deepens—
the flood water rises
to my cot

ਗਹਿਰੀ ਹੋਈ ਪਤਝੜ—
ਮੇਰੀ ਮੰਜੀ ਤਾਈਂ ਚੜ੍ਹ ਆਇਆ
ਹੜ੍ਹ ਦਾ ਪਾਣੀ

hill sunrise—
on the buffalo's back
an egret

bay window
not a single wagtail
nor its chirp

durungawan
ni isang ibo'y wala
o kanyang huni

sand maze
an august encounter
with the sea

un dédale de sable
une auguste rencontre
avec la mer

on one side stars
and you on the other—
every midnight

на една страна
ѕвездите, на друга ти—
во секоја ноќ

leaving its nest
a hawk enters the fog—
Christmas morning

napuštajući gnezdo
soko ulazi u maglu—
Božićno jutro

desert night . . .
the scent of campfire
in the dying stars

amoru ratri . . .
kyamp fire-er ghraan
mumurshu taray
