Two Seasons

By K.V. Raghupathi

And then came Winter
dressed in a loose white cloak,
melancholic, like a forlorn lover
sweeping across the pale grass,
dull December, cheese-like snow
with hardened memories of hanging roots
buried in the womb in grandiose silence
under its noiseless weight.
Snowfall dangled pearls
on my eyelashes.
 
 
And then came youthful Spring --
like a danseuse mesmerising the valleys and hills to smile,
filling the woods and plains with colour and harmony,
songs of joy, birds and flowers,
awakening the buried strawberry memories
underneath the cobalt sky
with life and cheer.
