Don’t blame the gods

By Ananya S Guha


The gods were not angry

why should they?

we transgressed mortal remains

we are not angry

we suffer from plenty

gods just change a meandering course

and an avalanche does the gory rest

We will talk about it

Walk with it

We will write( may not weep)

and our prognostications may suffer

because who knows where?

Don’t blame the gods, blame a cosmic divine

seeing, hearing believing.

Cup your hands prayerfully.

And wipe salt from tears!
