YELLOW BELLS


Madhuca longifolia-mahua flower

Walked through the pleasant smell
Beside the road where mahua flowers fell
Many were still there on request of spring
Hanging like tiny yellow Indian ox’s bell

LANDING OF MAHUA


Mahua_Flowers_5

Arrival of night
And gentle touch of darkness
It was that calm time
When Mahua had landed
On the gray bed of dead leaves
