I   Back  I 



H. S. Shivaprakash


We

Sleep changing sides :

In between
the wakefulness : we

the advancing
and receding
the waves---
in between
the sigh : we

between the moon
put out
and the sun
lit up

between the moon
put out
and the sun
lit up

between heart-beats
the silence
breaking
into an-
other world :
we.


Two Flowers

Voices singing in dreams :

in the garden
he is condemned to enter
there stands
a single tree
with two flowers

just two flowers :

the earth takes the unfading flower
while he the fading one.
