Banyan Sad Poem

As winter secrets
melt,

with the purple
sun,

what is revealed
is electric,

notes tune
unknown scales,

syntax alters
tongues,

terracotta melts
white,

banyan ribbons
into armatures

as branch-roots
twist, meeting

soil in a circle.
Circuits

glazed
under cloth

carry
alphabets

for a calligraphers
nib

italicised
in invisible ink,

letters never
posted,

cartographers
map, uncharted

as phrases fold
so do veils.
