A Lazy Summer Afternoon

The Bangalore Poetry Festival released an anthology of poems from contributing poets who made the cut. Glad to get my first publication as a Bangalore poet after doing it in Seattle.

Here's the poem in question.

A Lazy Summer Afternoon

Our willowy fingers traced 
the shapes of clouds.
One was a face, the other a ship, 
a third an army in disarray
One was shaped like the memory we were making, 
two clouds floating on grass, 
dew kissing their tingly feet.

"One was shaped like the memory we were making, " - I absolutely adore this line. Congrats!
