grass on the roof,
beans sprouted and
climbed down the vines,
money plants crept in through the window,
our house seems to have grown roots.
The fences have grown into a jungle,
now how can I tell my children
where we came from?
Mr. Buchung D. Sonam presented his book Conflicts of Duality. In his poem he express the feeling of separation from ones own land and describe the pain of life in exile and how much he miss the snow, which let him remember, "Let's go back home"
In the heat of Indian summer
Butter sculptures melt
Could gods send cold waves?
Oh how we miss the snow
Let's go back home.
