Golden Days - Mumbai

Golden Days - Mumbai

15 Jan 2017

Mumbai is in constant collision with itself.

It is a hub of ferries from the sea,
a necklace of long lines of traffic

that wrap
around tree-lined streets.

It is cacophony
and chords of quiet beauty.

It is washed by the same, rich sun
that bathes India
in a golden-hour glow.

It is dreaming and desire.
It is yearning and home.  

We see it through distant eyes, fleeting,
and still, we find subtle kinship
in its cafes and clear-eyed chaiwallahs.
