what i know

i know that clear nights are colder than cloudy nights
and days are warmer than nights and summer nights
shorter than winter nights and
it is the sun that lights the day and the moon
waxes and wanes
i know that rain
falls like apples and leaves in the autumn
i know humans are two-legged creatures
and that the earth's gravity
prevents us from falling
and flying

i have perceived these, i have built my life around
knowing what i think into existence
but who will prove the world to me
even as i see it
or myself

i can fly

ಸಣ್ಣ ನೆನಪು (ಈ ಕ್ಷಣವೇ)

ಎಲ್ಲಿದ್ದಿ, ಹೇಗಿದ್ದಿ
ನೀನು. ಈ ಕ್ಷಣವೇ
ಕಣ್ಣು, ಮುಖ.
ನಿನ್ನ ಸ್ವರ
ಎಲ್ಲಿದ್ದಿ ನೀನು,
ಮಳೆ ಬೀಳ್ತಾ ಇದೆ.
