ARUNDHATHI SUBRAMANIAM

He says he dreams
of a cottage marooned
in a moon-flecked ocean of paddy,
she of a solitude
defined by crickets and oil lamps,

and I know I often long
for some warm lair
in a craggy wilderness
suffused by the trust of animals,
monsooned in grace…
(from Locality)

PRIYA SARUKKAI CHABRIA

Make me dew that touches all without distinction
Like snow-flakes let my perfect structures yield to the melt of being.
As an underground river flowing during drought, make me draw from secret sources.
Sweet and salt, estuarine — let differences mingle in my blood.
Tidal courage, I call upon you to return after the ebb: Spirit of water give me hope…
(from Invocation: Spirit of Water)

Cinema:
