Kannada
she grew from the earth
her words –
clusters of clay pots.

Hindi
she was strung from a branch
her words –
unswaying prayer flags.

English
she rose and swayed
tilted back, fell forwards
she flowed suspended in mid-air
held her spine straight,
her head high.
she whooped, dived and sighed.
jumped through hoops i held

she breathed fire. 

One day                                                                       
from across the room
our eyes met.
