Ishani Routh

Images and patterns cluster in the bone-dome,

Dancing patterns, fuddled shapes

They expand and contract in numerous drapes,

Aging old and aging young,

Blank and genius,

Melancholic and happy,

Romantic and pessimistic,

Holy and unholy,

Worldly and outworldly,

Combinations go on…

Growing and molding

Into new shapes and sizes

Compounds and solutions

Adding permutations


Then flowing through the ink

Projecting on pages white

Ruled unruled black or white

In rhythmic or unrhythmic

Short or long

Songs of the mind

Readings of the soul

Caging the creator in each verse

The creator of the creation

Thus immortalize…
