Indian poet Annanya Uberoi, currently of Madrid, takes us to the Himalayan foothills in her poem “Wild Birds in Nepal,” excerpted here:

We rest as wild birds at midnight,

soundless, warm in our shelters nestling with

fine tea and good food, for we must sleep well

to wake up in time to taste the tangible rays

of golden light as they lay gentle and godlike

upon the massive rubble of the earth.
