Lapwing Circles by Lina Krishnan

Standing on terra firma
Listening to that strange keening cry
A glimpse of a disappearing streak

Wait. It’s almost certain to return
Making a radial swoop

A circle of recollection
That takes me back too
To lapwing memories, elsewhere.


Lina Krishnan is a poet and abstract artist in India. Her poems, non fiction writing, and paintings have found a place in ten anthologies of poetry. She finds this cusp of the years a time of renewal and mystery.
