Presence

Yellow thread
Tied to a tree

Marigold 
Scattered
In a thaali 

Rose petals 
Quivering 
In a water bowl

Black dhoop 
Smoking on a step

Diya floating
Down the river

Air fragrant
With burning incense 

In 
Offerings 
Left by strangers
I trace your presence

Inspired from: 


"Wherever I bowed my head, I found the steps to his door" 

ਜਿਥੇ ਵੀ ਸਰ ਝੁਕਾ ਲੀਆ ਦਹਲੀਜ਼ ਜਾਪੀ ਓਸਦੀ 

जहाँ भी सर झुका लिया दहलीज़ पाई उसीकी 

Amrita Pritam
