the dry rose
within a worn book . . .
hues of love
might fade but some moments
always remain fragrant

sukha gulaab
purani kitab ke beech main
pyaar ka rang
kam ho sakta hai par kuch pal
hamesha sugandhit rehte hain


Anupam Sharma
India



looking up
at a white cloud in blue sky
my heart leaps
toward the heavens
happy to be in this void

仰望
蓝天上那白云
我心跃入天庭
神游
虚空

moonlight
shiny lines of rails
fade into night
whistle piercing emptiness—
while the train rocks memories

soj mesečine.
svetleče črte tirov
izginjajo v noč.
žvižg prebode praznino—
vlak zaziba spomine


Dimitrij Škrk
Slovenia



a moonlit night
the sea unloads its
anxieties
but desire carries on
like wave after wave

chandni rati
samudra prakash kare tara
udmigata
kintu icha nirantra huye
lahadi pare lahadi bhali


Pravat Kumar Padhy
India
