    Under those big rocks
    closed and compact
    are those my thoughts?
    Dorji Tashi (Thimphu)
    Hot afternoon
    a man rests
    under a tree’s dappled light
    Sonam Palden(Thimphu)
    Late sun through the window
    the children
    have deserted the kitchen
    Sonam Palden(Thimphu)
    Cloudless winter sky
    over the mountains
    the peach tree is barren
    D Penjor (Thimphu)
    In the sunlight
    arranging papers
    and filing them
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    
    
    Her silhouette on the gate
    lit by a passing car
    as we part ways
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
    
    
    Yellow leaves
    crowd the asphalt
    the kitchen window
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    The stars
    it’s been a long time
    my brother’s towels
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    Far into the night
    the sound of accidently
    stepping  on a tin cup
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
    Flashing it’s colours
    an autumn tree
    in the cold evening wind
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
    On the murky dishwater
    floats
    traces of cake and biscuits
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
    Faint light patterns
    in the room
    always they come announced
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
    Once a young girl
    even if  it’s merely ashes
    old diaries
    Sonam Palden (Paro)
    Even if i care
    what does it matter?
    society is not lonely without me
    Neten Chhetri(Bangkok)
    a candle lit moment
    everybody is silent
    the warm bukhari
    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)
    Hungry
    from all the sleep
    the chocolate from my mother
    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)
    A rattling school bus
    sends afloat roadside leaves
    the street is quiet again
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
