Bakul Banerjee’s poems on Index of ISPS Member Poems by Author (illinoispoets.org)

The Sandstorm

The color of the sky was turning acid green.

“Close the windows.” Mother was screaming.

I was peeking at love letters in the cookie tin,

that my father wrote to his new bride. I gave in.

 

Closing windows against the wind was daunting.

Despite efforts, the fierce sandstorm blew in.

In the summer afternoon, the house went dark.

I could not remember where I left the old tin.


The power was out. In the darkness, I tasted grit.

Ganga, that’s what my father called her. I kept

thinking. Was she like the mighty river swollen

by the monsoon, shimmering under the moonlight?
