Poetry 2018 Longlist, Priyanshi Bahadur


Under the Apple blossoms,

When you rest your head on my lap,

I will read to you about the mighty mountains of Lhasa and prayers in a Mani wheel.


I will tell you the story of how my father had a 107 horses but when he came from Tibet,

it was on foot.

About the scented monastery of Lamayuru.


About my Acha and her wrinkles,

And how I have finally made peace with Zanskar river.


And, when your mind flows slower than the river,

know that we have become one.

Under the Apple blossoms.
