Island on Mountain River

a poem by Lahari Chatterji

Looming mountains play with sight
River comes, divides in two
To seek two ways, an island
Triangle at the parting-
Long necked, long legged raised winged bird.
No further can see these eyes.

Wish to immerse in currents
While racing around the green
Matted piece of calm flat land
At moment same, wish to see
Beyond these slopes flowing lives.
