Enduring Life

(a haiku sequence)

racing ahead

cars buses taxis rickshaws


rickshaw puller

singing of far-flung love . . .

dripping with sweat

homeless man

enthroned on the traffic island

watching life flash by

old tourist

tripping on the sidewalk

crouched on the hawker's wares

squeezing out

of the crammed double decker

torn sleeve

traffic jam

between ambulance sirens

cries of a newborn
