When you were born your eyes were closed
And you were indistinguishable from the other babies.

We argued over names
And how could I've known you were fated to lie down
on Nanda Devi?

When you were old enough I began to teach you
Which greenery you could eat to survive alone out

In the wilderness, like me. The earth is the grandest
Of living things, and with it we are linked inextricably.
Nanda Devi.

No one understood why I didn't feel at fault
But I'd only introduced you to the glory of mountaintops.

When the avalanche swept me off the face of a friend
With someone's little kids we were like specks of dust
In nature's beautiful broom,
Nanda Devi,
rejoining the river.
