Poems by Leena Sharma


A Conversation

My desire was the need to belong,

A blind potter knowing I am blind

And not that I make perfect lamps

She came up and said, “And maybe the next time

When romance finds you

You’ll know why

It was

So important to stand

Alone for now”.

He replied, “White things

Are hard because they catch people’s dark eyes.

The lady dances in the form of

A Prahar, a design so complex

“What are you doing?

Don’t do this.

Desperation leads to Destruction.”

“And if it inspires you

Do it right away.
