I   Back  I 

Savithri Rajeevan


I am not from the West
North East
South West
or from the East
I am not a mother
a happy person
or a child
I am not Satyavan's Savithri
Rama's Sita
Krishna's Radha
I am not the light
encircling your head
not the wind
filled with fragrance
I am not the white clouds
blue sky
or pond of lotus.
I am not the
tears, dream
creepers or flowers.
I am not the animal
wandering in moon light
not the fluttering fish
not the wanderer
I am not the moving earth
the hard heart
truth, light
life, body
me, you.
But then
what I am
what am I ?
