( Edited by Joneve Mc Cormick).
In the autumn Mountain forest sheds leaves
Remains of spring fly in hot winds
Watchers of forests Empty their dens
Hunters' footsteps go away
On the slopes of mountains
Gasps of chasing dogs
Die away to distances
Singular rain embraces the earth
Good looking Earth satiates
Monstrous desires hidden in caves
Continents and oceans
Deltas and islands
Rivers and lakes
Gorges and deserts
Embrace each other, entwined and curled
Bring out the lust of earth.
This enchantress is unable to keep secrets
They flow as if in a blue film
Earth still feels sorrow in her lover
Squeezing breasts tight.
Himalayas and Aravali
Andes and Alps
Rocky and Pyrenees
Mines snow and deodar
Gulgul* and Kanmada**
From the breasts of Earth
Then the autumn comes to an end
Soil assimilates everything
But man drills holes in the earth
In search of diamonds and petrol
Made of solar power
It's human rapine, sores and scabies
Contracted from illicit connections
Burst and flow
Still this old woman waits for her lovers .
• *Gulgul is a kind of stain emanating from a tree. It is a great medicine in Ayurveda
• **Kanmada is, what should I say, the juice of stones, even granites. It is of immense value, economically and medicinally
