on grass, on little palm, between cycle-spokes
fluff! fluff! fluff! fluff! fluff! fluff! flies the butterfly
good morning!

Crawl - silent, surreptitious crawl,
On the calf, underneath the jeans.
Thack! out drops a little frog.


kiss and tell,
only a kiss can tell
reach out tenderness!

Issues, problems
Bigger issues, bigger problems

- Arti, Mumbai


Music, longing, noise, silence dies down... but the sounds stay
Pain, sweat, tears, dreams dry down... but the taste stays
Running, escapes, caress, boundaries tear down but the touch stays

- Kaurwakee, Bombay, India

disscussions, arguments, altercations,
i, you, they, why, go, stay
love matters the most in life

Chatting, Coding, Mailing -
Tik Tik Tik Tik Tik...
Typing all the way.

Self Uncontrol

self uncontrol, a storm in the mind
forced, fearful, frail thoughts
silence at 1561, park street

- Vivek, 27, New Delhi

Damp hopes and a memory -
three kisses and a ride -
Ting tong! the doorbell rings.

Sweating and heaving running along,
Dry leaves crushing, making noises strong...
Crrrech.. Craaaw Creeech Craaaw..

heavy heavy sky, downcast,
ghrrrring ghrrrrrrrrrrrringh were sedans, trucks, buses.
glimpsed her feet - fair, laced, svelte


Cawe! Cawe! Cawe! on the window grill...
Heavy drops touch solid earth.
Drenched gurgling memories...

auto-rickshaws run stutter tutter... putter tutter.
black waters -
Croak... croakcroak, croakcroak...


Clank clank! tak tak tak... peepeep... peep! Claaaaaaank!
Amidst concrete and metal;
twittetwitter... twitter...
