Poems by Ram Krishna Singh
Dhanbad, India

HAIKU

crowded streets
moving among the years
wretched faces

a sleeping snake
curled between the eggs—
layers of leaves

a yellow spider
crouching in a corner
invisible webs

lying listless
on withered creeper
a golden bird

a lone sparrow
atop the naked branch
viewing sunset

a frog
bullied into the hedge:
snake’s breakfast

on the road
an injured toad—
onlookers

parents pelt stones
at the mating street dogs—
nosey children

potholes:
spots of sunshine
wobble

sudden downpour
noisy trucks at midnight
crowded footbridge

watching dogs
frolicking in the park—
jaded couples

dusky backyard
crowded parrots’ shrieks
autumn onset

chasing each other
in the by lane
two birds

a teenager
glides past me on roller blades
her long hair flows

receding crowd
from the street fair
Jesus in the eyes







NUDE DELIGHT

The coiled divine
renews eternity
in the body's cells
fed on sensuous sweetness
and moment's littleness

for years fleshly reign
seemed spirit's radiance
in the deep pit
now suddenly sparks the itch
for heaven's nude delight




NEW YEAR

The dates on calendar question
all my undone acts

and memories that haunt or fade
in nightly nakedness

stumbling toward the next day’s sun
without celebration

at 63 January jeers
my degenerating sex

a still itch: mantra and mirror
quiet god and drying petals

--Ram Krishna Singh
