Anita says.....

May 2022

In Madurai
city of temples and poets
Who sang of cities and temples
Every summer
A river dries to a trickle
In the sand
Baring the sand rubs
Straw and women's hair
Clogging the watergates
At the rusty bars
Under the bridges with patches
Of repair all over them
The wet stones glistening like sleepy
Crocodiles, the dry ones
Shaven water-buffaloes lounging in the sun
The poets only sing of the floods

With International Dance Day just concluded, I have chosen to focus on the joy and beauty of DANCE this month.

"Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world".
