tragic tune within


in the scanty monsoonal airs
their vivid greeny-red canopy gleams
this sunshine gulmohur tree
smiles outside my balcony

a cuckoo with sorethroat
pitches high in notes daily
screamy compositions
announcing wide-audience
its unending tragedy

no wonder
branches are in an infectious spree
wilting along its vasculars


even petallic painted reds
oozing life limitless
are not of any solace

that cuckoo
this gulmohur
and me
