Shishir 2018 Poems - Sreeja Harikrishnan


I am the Fire

By Sreeja Harikrishnan


My words shaped my lips;
My deeds, my hands;
My path, my legs;
Limb by limb,
A form of labels---
A raven pair on the rain tree,
Ever changing cloud-art,
Hills that change colours with season,
Earth revolving around the sun
Like a big moth---
Don’t seek me in my form
I have tasted the sun and
As I watch all of them,I am nowhere, and yet,
I am the big moth and the sun and beyond,
I am the fire…


Sreeja Harikrishnan from Mumbai, India, is a poet and artist. Her work has appeared in many publications.
