Open 2021 Poems - Ramesh Dohan


Postcards from the heart

By Ramesh Dohan


Sandalwood beckons stories
in much the same way oceans
beckon rush


Each morning in the city
a ravenous invitation for longing
to wallow in the warm embers of tea
being instigated in kettle,
Hunger rises


alongside the rhythmic scent
of freshly baked bread
a morning rich with the invite
Thus, the symphony unfurls
in so many old cafés

this childhood caress of a city
