Tenth picture on my phone

Is a beautiful painting
By an artist who paints with her fingers,
Not brushes-
Lata Balakrishna;
And here she has carved out a fort
In beige and ochre
Under purple-blue skies,
Wearing
Of all things –
A rich green wall,
Quite surprising!

You wonder
If it’s a warm welcome,
To diminish the effect
Of searching sepoys one may
Meet on the way…?
