At the Confluence and Beyond
by Haris Adhikari
Much noise there is
when two sprightly streams
bump into each other, bringing forth
the hidden color of water
What do they churn out of themselves?
what a spiritual ecstasy springs forth
from their acts of declining
hurls and hugs
into an inebriated river
with a slow
and serene motion!
about their deepening depths that leave
green reflections behind.
