Norway/Gobardhanpooja

Translation: braZesh

1.
The compassionate sun
rises above the Norwegian sky
to appease the birds
made shelterless by the snow

2.
Your snow peaks to me are
as dear as my Everest
your lakes for me are
as serene as my Rara
your Basin and Moose
are no different
than my Yak and Reindeers

City lights
singing birds
petite and shy
seasonal flowers
all bear similarities

Alas! If only there could be
any resemblance between
our ailing hearts forced to flee
in deep, long and dark woods
and you exodus
with abandoned loads of dynamites
