Kishangarh in Rajasthan

Monday in January three holidays today

407 year old town our hotel and fort a lake

Raj owner lives  5 miles away

1000 people at a wedding in  purple tent

Christmas lights  groom rides a decorated horse

boar families wander  cows

and cows  children want to practice  hellos

young bride in red her groom tight silver suit

posing for photos on the lake gods and goddesses

so much music and when we wake up this morning

prayer and song and our hotel guide a waiter here too

thin gentle man in a bright blue suit he says his wife

two boys live very far away  he sees them twice a year

a big country he says no one he explains knows

what happens behind these walls.

You can’t just come and see.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
