My Village – Alipore

by Ahmad Gul

The second night

In this alien land

It is June

The day break

At half past three

Comes to mind

My village in deep sleep

The dawn

With cock-a-doodle-do


Humming millstones

Cow’s bellowing

As the village wakes up

And here

In this alien land

At dawn

With the fireplace as the witness

I grope

Towards my invisible village
