The eighteenth poet in this Lockdown Poetry series is K Ramesh.

shutdown…
the throb
on an egret’s neck
 
lockdown…
two tender leaves
on a barren tree
 
shutdown…
I let a bumble bee fly
out of the window mesh
 
pandemic…
a small gap between
herons:
 
shutdown…
all the windows
open
 
lockdown…
I speak to a toad
on the sink
 
lockdown…
a hare lingers
on the country road
