    the musty smell

    downstairs

    apa is gone

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)

    the tree

    behind our house

    …home

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)

    many years roll by

    just waking up

    may fall asleep again

    geeti yaganegi (gelephu)

    voices outside

    child cries in the distance

    carefully listening

    geeti yaganegi (gelephu)

    flashes of lightening

    standing in the pouring rain

    rumbling thunder follows

    geeti yaganegi(gelephu)

    the children have left

    their little clutters

    in the deserted playground

    sonam palden (thimphu)

    i too was curious as them

    neighbour’s little girls

    coming inside the house

    spring is not my favourite

    yet, the smell of earth

    after the rain

    sonam palden (thimphu)

    consoling a crying child

    a momentary pause

    did she hear the rain?

    two wild pigeons

    sharing the sun

    on a wired fence

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)

    the doorbell rings

    opened to a shriveled person

    satisfied by a smile and a bowl of rice

    dr. anayat sy (gelephu)

    entered a shop expectantly

    cheated for price

    oh for another day!

    dr. anayat sy (gelephu) 

    oh age!

    that is ageless

    made me old and breathless

    dr. anayat sy (gelephu)

    a juniper tree

    one i never noticed before

    in the R.I.C.B colony

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)

    families united

    by this busy rain

    together again

    dorji tashi (thimphu)

    flowers wet in the rain

    an old man

    sits besides the chorten

    dorji tashi (thimphu)

    sunshine after a downpour

    enshrines the old world

    beautiful

    dorji tashi (thimphu)

    the afternoon shower

    as i walk out

    to feed the dogs

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)

    listening to music

    in the sun

    a peach blossom petal falls

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)

      the smell of oil

    as we enter

    the butter lamp enclave

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)
