storm clouds pass over jaipur
flash of lightning
crash of hail
cows murmer from the
gardens below
wind rolls the thunder about
mountains ringed with ramparts
appear from out the
confusion

pink castles
rain

jaipur city a honking miasma
shop after shop spilling over in color
saris, bangles, scarves
samosas in hot oil
ice cream shops & sweets

roll around the avenues
picking up two dollar shades &
hawker’s cajoles

3.

come midnight
the drums of holi echo & rattle
through the streets a-clatter
far off singing
around & ‘round
the drums call out
die down
kick up
a dog barks
the motos bleat
throbbing music climbs deep into the night
