Crystals Carry Topographies

By Sunil Sharma

The snow glitters under a cold


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.


It connects geographies of

mind and heart



in a single instant.

Crystallized topographies

out there in the open.
