River in the gorge

The earth swelled and sank
Below  rough hard exterior

Soon all was red in the hills.
River was green tree snake

That neatly fitted sunny tail
In depths of a gorge below.

Our hair would  swirl at  top
In sheer fright of its depths.

(At Gandikota in Andhra Pradesh where the river Pennar cuts a breath taking gorge in the rocks of Erramalai hills)
