The old temple walls

meshed in color, discolor

are silent as the birds.


The Ghats are homes to

sinners and saints:

living or dead.


The sun and skies are

involved in crimes; changing

combination of hues.


The old houses even breathe

a little; their heirlooms

far in the cities.


The old bazaars have

intact skeletons; people

visit various malls.

The Ganges is turbulent

it hides many sores:

bones, flowers, oil lamps.


An old civilization

becoming an outcast, slowly

crying silently.
