Pancholi Nandlal Kanjibhai
Gujarat, India
2004

The Village rose at midnight
And each house wore delight
The festive mood squatted on roofs
In hectic rhythm moved the hoofs
Horse race was followed by buffalo contest
Then human legs were put to test
The fair sex put on maiden attire
And the ageing lot sat near fire
The green calves cracked fireworks
while blind birds sat on treeperks
The daybreak was still very far
when in distant sky I saw a pulsar
