Crystals Carry Topographies

By Sunil Sharma

The snow glitters under a cold

sun,

the sheets of solid snow

full of tiny crystals

along the sides of the roads,


each particle shines there

as part of a complex pattern,


some, on the other side of

the accumulated piles


look like


the marbles they played

when young

in a small town of a distant India


where snow was only a picture

in a book.


Snow!


It connects geographies of

mind and heart

and

cultures

in a single instant.


Crystallized topographies

out there in the open.
