Moushumi Chakrabarty

when summer dusk colors the lips
of the hollow grass ringed pool
fireflies laugh wantonly
at the naked swimming moon,

silver becomes the shade of desire
dyeing the shore's long wet hair
a hush, only the cicadas breathe
among the trembling tamarinds:

then aloud floats the moan of conch shell
as lover-like the scented wind mounts.
