Her greatest fear was
going color blind,
invoking domino effect,
she embraced rainbow colors-
whenever a chance she found.
Now, she walks at the front
as if she is the official bearer of colors
in our frenzied blueberry hunt,
up in the high ranges of Western Ghat's
tropical rain forests.
Our nostrils are special,
"colors we see, make us madly sing"
chants rend the air when-
fragrance of ganja blooms wafted in the air.
"Just like the smell when python opens mouth"
said a voice, to the uninitiated,
"Quit white, paint everything coal black,
or is it the other way round?"
"This place is magical can't make a choice"
"Look! I found a serious irregular lake down there"
"I didn't realize I was walking in rounds, around a closed mall"
"White light is a cheat, pixie laid us is in the village green"
"Y'll fall down"
"Green was what i asked for
got thick,red, gooey mud"
"Hey meet Mr.Yellow smile,
kiss him a pretty, magenta
dirty thought, good night"
"I've a deep blue psyche,
in nightmares I see sperm whales"
"Wounded bleeding heart,
she was nursed back to health
it beats me,
she limped back to her old green monster"
"Hear that distant drums?
brick red monster of the woods
mating with a black cat"
"A ritual of the tribes?
is it meant as a crude joke?"
Sitting under a tree shade,
I hear for the first time in my life,
a white ant's dark wintry song,
lilting, it spoke about the life
as the queen ant's sex slave.
"Hey love this ganja magical feat,
anything is possible,
how reality takes a beat"
"Fuck it, three times over,
on the bank of the river, then in water.."
"Blue grass, blue grass
sing all the way up to the mountain pass,
where ganja plants grow thick like dirty thoughts,
a nightingale in funky dress
singing bawdy songs and regale all"
"That lush lass, her hair tied with a red bandana
is a smart ass, fuck her"
Someone screams in delight,
evening spreads a magical light,
more laughter, catcalls,
the sassy chick just LOL
A big headstrong hornbill, surveying the scene,
gives a mating call
the hillside reverberates with its sound.
