Dusk in Kalpa

About Seema Misra

Seema Misra likes to call herself Lonely Canopy. Standing tall, reflecting on its shadow, fearless in the crowd, and raring to grow further. A former communications industry professional, she works in watercolor illustrations, travel writing, content creation, copywriting, and social media marketing through her blog Lonely Canopy. Coffee keeps her going, live sketching is her idea of socializing, and books make her feel at home. Travel for her exists as an idea in non-linear time. Places from past become memories of the future. And, stories blend with characters and find life in a two-dimensional frame.

When the sun takes leave
after a spectacular
six colored sunset.
When, somewhere near
the Kibber Kailash peak
three trekkers hole up
in their tents.
When woodfire smoke
in the air duets with
twinkling night lights.
When huddled beside a fire,
migrant workers from
Orissa sing melancholy tunes
of the sea.
Then the day ends
on a note of
fullness and beauty.
