Sutanuka Ghosh Roy (Women and Spring)

Sutanuka Ghosh Roy

Offering


Fiery red Palash
grabs me in his arms
raceme petals kiss
the nape of my neck
like a coy bride
I shudder at the soft touch.
The flame burns
my unshared desires
out of ashes
I rise to become
Palash
an offering
at the altar of the
Troika.
