Embers of Loneliness

a poem by Unnikrishnan N G

Younger in Seattle
Elder in Russia

I am here
Listening KL Saighal*
Raffi Sahib**
Walking up to ‘Subji Mandi’
To her subtle voice
In women bargaining

And back
Hand in hand with
The Megalopolis
Now an ambience
Of her smile and nose ring
Catching sparkle
From each other

Such embers of loneliness
