These poems are for Kush

mumbai trains

 

Mumbai trains make a rhythmic sound
hugging the earth as they run the ground
iron handles shake and swing
every three minutes stations bring

cheerful people of a hurry hurry land
Mumbai trains are anything but bland
they entice and they lure you inside
if only a place to sit you can find

sweet Mumbai sea breeze better than
any air conditioned metro built to plan
viva Mumbai and viva Mumbai train
my station is up lets get down again

  2. The poem and artwork make a fine pair…it seems to me that the poem has a pleasant tone.
