Robert Henry Poulin राबर्ट हेनरी पालिन

alone on the path
only flowers

पथ पर अकेले
केवल फूल

butterfly flying
over there over here over there
over here again

तितली उड़ रही
वहाँ यहाँ वहाँ
और फिर यहाँ

on the lake
a happy face

झील पर एक
हँसमुख चेहरा

flash, then
shakes leaves

चमक, फिर
पत्ते हिला रही

rain forest
every tree cut down
shallows my breath

मेरी साँस उथला हो जाती है
हर वृक्ष के कटने पर
