Watching Sunrise over Mountains

 

two words eliding together

suryode                                                                                   

clouds tearing at seams, re-feathering for day

crows flapping wings 

 

same word for ship and plane

jahaj

what does this say

 

world catching between peaks

kal

yesterday / tomorrow

sun framing itself, emerging at top: crowning

 

each stroke missed, making

jheel

lake holding glass to sky, symmetrical and angular

single crack for pedal boat

 

god or mountain

parvat

droplet-shaped face with no hair

undefining

 

same word for he, she, they

waha

beating from cluster of cells

child that makes wo/man

 

sun, never-perfect circle

waha

shortened to ‘wo’, looser version of ‘who’

when do they form

 

they, spreading halo wings, light falling coloured

they, shining yellow before blue

 

crows flapping wings against hazy hue of risen sky

who are we to decide
