Poetry 2023 Longlist, Kamala Belagur

 Waiting For The Green

I am a bare tree,

Standing alone 

Leaping up 

to the height of the horizon.

Empty, naked…

A witness to many of the past springs

and human tragedies…

I'm standing, lifeless, 

Invisible in the city’s landscape

Without inspiring the poet's imagination,

Colourless for an artist's brush…

In anticipation of life

Once again

For the coming spring

Waiting for my limbs to reach out

To other trees

To breathe

To hear the song of birds
