Sitayana





emotion calculates time


eyes counting days


the expected has not arrived


further suffers the soul



words too hard to orchestrate


to express the heart’s bitterness


could simply words represent


unspoken suffering




full moon


appears without words


wanes without news


what remains – suffering




speechless sita


awaits rama



* ayana – “path” or “journey” in Sanskrit
