Sheep (Tanka)

Counting to slumber
she grazes in winding trails
short tail, woolly coat-
then one climbs over the bridge
others flock instinctively.

Sanskar Jyot Reunion

A sure hand led us
when we were baffled by the studies.
Strict, severe in appearance
but soft and unhurried.
Now, as each master speaks
with unmatched clarity in thoughts-
their actions we can predict,
the styles so imbibed in us.
Time goes back and forth-
old school mates meet.
''Who are you? how are you?'', questions galore.
Memories flow - sour and sweet.
Then, as children, we stood height-wise.
And now, as adults, we click width-wise.
