Across the streetlived the giants.The green giants-who waited for rains to cry,who waited for the night to speak. Thankfully the windows in my temporary homewere small and few.Thankfully it was always cold,that awful cold that makes you want to sleep for a long long time.

“Drop of Me”- Nayana Nair

A drop of me falls on your leaves, falls from your leaves. The rain of love finds you again even if it is without me. The ground of reality hits me again, asking me to give you up.

“Flower” – Nayana Nair

I pluck one leaf at a time from this flower, this script my life is. I throw them from bridges on cold evenings. I bury them in the soil that soils their print with time.

“REMINDER” – Nayana Nair

Bright light hovering over my head Lighting me up, making me its own. Inseparable, as if I am light itself. The blinding brightness of my being Leaves me incapable of finding my way Through my own thoughts, turned strangers. In this light, I have nothing to write Nothing that’s mine. And I fear these blankContinue reading ““REMINDER” – Nayana Nair”
