An Afternoon Show by SK Iyer

nature bounces in a row of mounds
covered by mown lawn
the sun is cornered
somewhere in the west
behind the green strip

a leaf  falls up
from a red rose flower
yellow and dry petals
fly up from the mango tree

pins of drizzling
explode bubbles
among undulations
a dog walks upside down
so also the people around me

drizzling stops
a little frog jumps from one
to another lotus leaf
an inverted catfish swims
to browse on algae

nature stands upside
down, fencing the sky below
churned into ripples
