Snow Malayalam

28 Jun

Soft sounds
In the night.
Snow falls
From leafless branches
Making its way down
Breaking apart,
Getting shattered,
White blanket
On the ground.
Ankles deep in snow
In the mornings.
Eyes that close
At the reflected light.
Coat covered
In snowflakes.
The snow-swords
Hanging from the sides of roofs
Threatening to fall.
Frozen water
On the stone pavements
Quite treacherous.
The ancestors
Who never saw snow,
In the wonder of my eyes.
My mother tongue
That took life
In the lands sans snow
Now silent.
Me, in the expanse of snow
Without words.
My mother tongue,
Sleeping within
Watching a rain-dream.
