Poetry in the Press 25 June 2010

Congratulations to Sarah Maindonald for getting her poem published in The Press. Here it is:

Shakti/Diwali

Six women filled the room

Several continents

One colour

Laughter chasing

a small child

Found in hide and seek

Terrors for a moment shut firmly outside the door

Cold sinister shadow fingers uninvited in the hall

Momentarily displaced

She danced, this maharani,

Hands winding in on each other,

Belly sensuously curling in and out

A remnant of spirit unharmed

Weaving saffron in fine threads through the room

She danced

for Saraswati, for Lakshmi,for Kali

for Rama and Sita

diyas lighting the way
