A Season’s Struggle-Vandana Kumar

A world

That turned its back

On seasons of love

And timely harvests

Invested in new hybrids

Were the new corporates

Altering flowering period

Nature had adopted

Fancier ways

I looked out

At illusions

Of bloom

Spring sun

That was saying farewell

Even before

We could give it a welcome

Our struggles to survive


As seasons of joy

Get clipped

World climates today

Are empty basins

That we carry


Vandana Kumar is a Delhi based Indian teacher,poet and translator whose works regularly appear in national and international journals,magazines and anthologies.
