Unsinkable little poems

Satish Gupta’s poems and drawings

FullSizeRenderWater hardens
into ice
- a little warmth
and it melts

FullSizeRender_1Our love solid as
a rock,
-but the stones
are cold


Passion does not
drown desire
Desire is unsinkable


The master said, I haven’t yet learned
to count beyond One,
at Two duality starts,
-problems begin
