Kriti Bajaj


A silver arrow released
From the bow of God.
split into a
seven-hued scarf
Rain falls on roof-tops
Showering blessings
on a still-sleeping world.
  Conical, tall
Holding out their slender arms
To a silver sky.
Flying to their nest
A flock of black against the
Painted horizon.
  Her gown
covers the sky,
then lifts to reveal stars.
