river Sutlej


Having grown up
On mesmerizing
Punjabi folklore
Sight of this nearly
Dry river churned
Emotions’ galore~
In a jiffy
Mom’s gentle
Intonation rang
In the air taking
By hand into far
Gone era of the
Mighty river Indus
With its five life giving
Tributaries spread as
a palm across undivided
Chest of Punjab and
My heart swelled
With joy
~ memories
Never die
