Hudhud, the Monster Bird by Prof. Indira Babbellapati, Andhra U, 2014

Hudhud, the monster bird
had spread its wings with
unbelievably violent force
ripping the city of all her
clothes…one after the other;
the wind danced in the eye
of the storm gyrating like
a belly dancer at her
hysteric worst…days and
nights groping in one’s
own hungry dark chambers
the bellies challenged the
worst ever cataclysmic
winds…after days people
crawled out like ants and
lo, the city is scorched by
the fire hidden within water.
Wind and water combined
to burn the trees that left
a constant glare as if few
thousands of petromax
lights were at work in a corner…
