a pauṣa afternoon

a pauṣa afternoon

the south winds of pauṣa have returned.
all afternoon, tossing curtains
scattering fallen leaves and
carrying in the scent of roses from the balcony.

i sit by the door sewing potlis from an old sari,
saanjh's blowing bubbles
and just like that these sweet january days
trickle into our hearts.

let my thoughts come to you
when I am gone
like the afterglow of sunset
at the margin of starry silence
