Karva Chauth --
a drizzle of moonlight fills
her heart's crater


Karva Chauth is a festival where the women see the moon through a sieve and wish long life for their husbands.

Comment kumarendra Mallick must get a call for a visit to Japan from the Japan Embassy for his love of haikus, so lovely and rich in imagery.

Comment On Karva Chauth
Women viewing the moon
Through a sieve
An wishing long life
To their husbands
With dishes in another hand
Full of flowers, sweets, diyas
And others.

Reminding of Savitri and Satyavan
Under the banyan tree,
Shiva Ratri,
The beginning of the commercial crops
And the harvest of the rainy ones,
The married and marriageable
Marking the moon rise to pray to.

But I searching my own
Burquawalli bibi
In the ghumta, purdah,
Hijab and nikab,
Going as my shadow,
The moon of the clouded skies,
Playing hide and seek,
The moon under the patches of clouds.
