Stone houses

Stones are houses against silences,
Against the eerie midnight ghosts
Who roam the night’s arid wastes.

Stones are not houses against time,
Against a night when village leaves
Holding head high against tyranny.

(Kuldhara is a ghost village near Jaisalmer abandoned overnight, in 19th century, by its residents to escape the tyranny of a ruling Minister who threatened to take the Chief’s daughter by force)
