Such Summers

kites-2

on such summers
kites copper faced the sky
rivers of an evening
offered solace
strings and streets slackened
the wind carried a vengeance
memories and dungeon breaths
it would be a long siege
you said
a bird less season
riding an unspoken sun
a dark would only answer
you smiled
the khus khus curtain
held the
stillness
lassitude of
such long summers.

Poem and Drawing by Amitabh Mitra
