What a surprising L3, Ed.

Your L 1 said - spring - so chirping birds is accepted! But your L2 took me away from birds chirping into a busy hour and a crowded mind!


Ha! What a refreshing L3.

So musical.


Thanks, Sanjuktaa for selecting this poem for open sky :: SAMVAAD.


I would love to hear Ed's take on this and the two editors' take on this ku too.
