Migrant | A Poem by Ananya S. Guha

Born 1957, 18th February, Shillong India. Welsh Mission Hospital. The eyes blue, so blue like a British exclaimed the doctor. A hundred years after the mutiny.
Mother came from Mymensing, now in Bangladesh. A migrant with no
stories of bloodshed, only that of one humanity. Hindu/Muslim. Now a migrant, I search for those living roots, of the land never visited spoken only in whisper.
The language I speak, half English/half Bengali. The roots have now
spread like tentacles gripping the wind for bird-like survival of the fittest.
