Down By the river…

Photograph – Sarker Protick

“Down by the river, a tree floats. It’s gigantic, hundreds of years old.

Nobody wishes to remove it.

It’s a sacred tree, from an old Hindu temple, now fallen.
Into the river.

Once upon a time there was a village. Then the river took it.

These banks are made of clay and sands.
The monsoon arrives and the river runs fastest. The lands get washed away and disappear.”

_Of River And Lost Lands.
