    Prayer flags flutter
    in the soft hymn laden breeze
    amidst green pine trees
    Kota Jurmi(Thimphu)
    The rain in between
    I can’t hear them
    women sitting outside the rice mill
    Sonam Palden(paro)
    His silhouette
    clearly defined
    butter lamps in the night
    Sonam Palden(Paro)
    Dried clover…fresh clover
    sprouting everywhere
    this gravel path
    Sonam Palden(paro)
    The rain comes down, pouring
    the kitchen garden
    overgrown
    Sonam Palden(Paro)
    Behind junkie street
    an old hut
    two figures smoking up
    Namgay Wangdi(Thimphu)
    High on moonlit ridge
    jackals howl, town dogs go mad
    sleepless full moon night
    Daniel Collins(Olakha,Thimphu)
    Police men
    patrolling
    in the night light
    Dorji tashi(Thimphu)
    Wilted plants
    waiting…
    for the rain
    Junu Chhetri(Ambient Cafe,Thimphu)
    The street
    …empty
    seems like a lazy, slow day
    Junu Chhetri( Ambient Cafe,Thimphu)
    Old man
    dragging his feet
    looks injured
    Junu Chhetri(Ambient Cafe,Thimphu)
    Neighbour calls his cow
    whose pasture’s now a suburb
    “ah yook chook chook.” “moo!”
    Daniel Collins(Olakha,Thimphu)
    Mindless thoughts
    rambling like drunken incantations
    breathe again, fresh start
    Daniel Collins(Olakha,Thimphu)
    Dark night
    gentle wind blowing from the south
    dogs barking
    Namgay Wangdi(Thimphu)
    Who knows what it is
    young seedlings
    could be pumpkin..could be cucumber!
    Sonam Palden(Paro)
    Gust of air
    shaking,falling leaves
    the apple trees
    Namgay Wangdi(Thimphu)
    A look of yearning
    an elderly lady
    touching ceramic plates on display
    Sonam Palden(Thimphu)
