Borra caves

A cow’s udders give off stone in milk Flowing down through a grazing story By a King, discoverer of lime flowers On the floor, through a luminous hole Where ancestors had lived their tales. The flowers hung as bats upside down But their shapes shifted through time Like ghosts of the ancients losing their Story tails, in their upside down stature. Up there they are Krishnas blue flutes Their music flowing like cow’s udders. On the floor they are ghosts dancing Their shapes to empty space of music.
(Borra caves are a million year old naturally formed stalactite caves situated in Araku Valley of Andhra Pradesh discovered by a British geologist William King George)
