Kans grass under a turquoise sky: image source here

I saw her

Tip toeing

In her deep turquoise sari

Embroidered all over

With white fleecy clouds

I saw her


Dewdrops from leaves and grass blades

And hanging out the feathery banners

Of Kans grass on the river banks

I saw her  

Wiping off

The salty sweat of weary workers

And loosening their fetters of duty

On their busy fields

I saw her


Joy in every heart for celebration

Of the coming festive season

Her Sheuli garland, lotus petals sing fragrant songs
