Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee
India (December 2016) – I met my cousin at Kalighat, we rambled around through the temple grounds offering respect for the ancestors. The evenings delight was our puchka stall marathon-hop; we sampled from several stalls, before hitting a sweet shop on our evening walk around town.

From the Notebooks (2010-2020)

Number 35: The Red Flower (the Open Wound), June 7, 2012.
by Malgorzata Wolak Dault
Gary's passion for books, always immense, has lately become something even more than that. He lives with his books as if they were intimate and inseparable companions.
Every evening, under the quiet light of his bedside-lamp, I find a book reposing on his pillow as if it were a fallen bird, vulnerable and wanting protection.
I pause and look at it, amused. And with a suspended heart. For me, it's as if the book were the branch of a tree.

An Orchid in the Mirror
The doubling of the orchid
is a calamitous irony.
"Damned by the mirror that reflects you"
watering the eye rather than the image,
turning its back on the other
with its back turned to it.
Take the mirror in your arms
like a woman, like squinting envy,
with the orchid like a decoy
over the abyss
of your multiplied life.
The orchid can irritate you
back home again
where this equals something else
and not that
May 26, 2004.
This poem is one of the fifty making up The Orchid Book, a small handmade volume of my orchid poems with drawings and water colours by my soon-to-be wife, Malgorzata. It was made the year after we met--in 2004.
