    Early morning rays
    hitting frosted grass
    The ground encrusted in jewels
    Dorji Penjor (Thimphu)
    Eating an omlette
    “squirt”
    The oil hits my face
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    Trying to notice everything
    prayer flags
    floating in the night sky
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    Not hearing
    the pigeons on the roof
    for days, the snowy mountain
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
    Four trees
    overlook the zen garden
    wind blows
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    For a while thinking
    it was my father’s truck
    half hidden on the driveway
    Sonam Palden(Thimphu)
    The movie over
    Ielts text book
    touching the laptop
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    My sister
    pouring curry in a cup
    i walk over to her
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    Snow falling
    on a nearby mountain
    the tired faces of road sweepers
    Sonam Palden(Thimphu)
    In the busy street
    a man turns, facing the sun
    as pigeons scatter
    Sonam Palden (Thimphu)
    The warmth gone
    this cold winter’s night
    everyone  near the embers
    Dorji Tashi (Thimphu)
    From a distance roars
    a big bird in the sky
    the new domestic aircraft
    Dorji Tashi (Thimphu)
    When the moon doesn’t brighten
    dark nights
    a flickering candle offers hope
    Dorji Tashi (Thimphu)
    The sun on my plate
    in the form
    of a chili
    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)
    The cabinet from early days
    with the broken glass window
    still ugly
    Sonam Palden (Paro)
    looking out the window
    stretching
    prayer flags wave horizontally
    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)
    Clouds resting
    on snowy peaks
    the chukor mani chimes
    Dorji Penjor (Thimphu)
    Light in my brother’s house
    newspapers
    by the window
    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
    Sky seems far away
    faces nearby
    seem more closer than they were
    Sonam Palden(Thimphu)
