Late Fruiting by Randhir Khare – His series of new poems and photographs celebrate the mountainous region of Himachal Pradesh, using motifs of nature to express deeply felt life experiences.

The Mountains Burned

The mountains burned all evening,
The mountains burned,
Great lines of fire
Climbing ridges,
Whirling wind-wards,
Dark ash drifting valley-wards,
Scattering, settling layer on layer
And I, hidden among the Deodhars
Wait for night;

There is in waiting a quiet healing,
Wounds close their mouths
Fuse lips,
Blood stills,
Breath curls in nests in my lungs,
Across the valley mountains sink in ash
Under an embering sky.
