Ananya S. Guha- A Poem

Shillong's Headless Horseman

The man on horse back
wearing his bowler hat
is said to stride the roads 
of a hill station where he 
lived. But headless, the sounds 
emanating clearly, horse hooves.
His spirit can never forsake a place, 
a country which he ruled. I heard them once.
Clearly at midnight. Did not see but heard 
till the noise deafened the ears, frightened 
the soul out of wits and recalled Grandmother's 
gory tales about her sons flying like UFOs. 

Ananya S Guha
Shillong, INDIA.
