Rhyming Rues

-Srishti Dutta Chowdhury



trimmed claws across gran’s terracottaterrace sounds of a lonely conchshelledanklet,
as a wayward windmill lands against notes of sonatamoonlit,

auburnish-yarned-fur steps across stackedkeysbrown,
pleasing cinnamon-cochlea;

i will rush back to the moonfield soon, cross
whitefence-picketed to
get my
crookedsweater knitted neat-right.



This year’s recipient of the CWIT Scholarship for Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh  and a student of Comparative Literature for most part of the day, Srishti Dutta Chowdhury reads, listens to whatever catches her fancy and writes a tad bit whenever she cannot do without putting some words to paper. She has been published at TFQM, Visual Verse, Coldnoon Travel Poetics, Bangalore Review, Muse India, Quail Bell, the Norwich Radical, Kindle, etc.
