Onset Of Spring At The Border

Hazy reflections…..

Crows gather to remember

The gifts of summer

Sound of planes scatter the birds

Melting snow brings back fighters.

PS : It is often the case at the borders of neighbouring countries; the start of spring results in molten snow and hostilities between the troops resume. The skirmish, after the lull of winter leads to a sort of confusion and anxiety amongst the flora and fauna and i have associated the scattered birds and the blackening flower with this anxiety.

Inspired By “The Little Mermaid”

The darkness of night

Covers all, save a small patch

The little mermaid

With long flowing locks of hair

Gazes at her pair of legs.

Brawn-An Illusion of Power

Courage lies within

Real power to fight fear

Brawn, mere accomplice-

Often creates illusion

Spawning many a Goliath.

Stars

Expanse of night sky
Sprinkled with shimmering stars
Binding in a spell;
Mystery of the cosmos
Living their own destiny.

Sudden Occurrence

Sudden occurrence;
A crimson life from earthโ€™s womb.
Confidently poised.
Marvelling nature around
During its short existence.

Autumn heralds..

An Indian autumn;

Shiuli flowers lie scattered.

In air, winter’s clue.

Heralding celebration

Of woman’s act of valour.

Note- 
1. This tanka refers to a popular and important festival celebrated in autumn in the eastern part of India. The festival is a celebration of a woman Goddess's brave fight to destroy evil forces.This is the time when the bold/brave facet of women is celebrated. 
2. The shiuli flower is a beautiful flower which is also referred to as the night jasmine. Typical of the autumn season, it blooms late in the night and falls off from the tree in early dawn.
3. Clue/valour has been used to imply hint/bold.
