Dolphin’s nose

No one knew Hud Hud would come
By the sea, from the North islands,
A floating hoopoe,with a wing span
That covered our black mountains.
Our dolphin here turns up its nose
Against looming ships in high seas.
It could not stop the big black bird
From entering our huts at midnight.

(Cyclone Hud Hud  caused untold destruction to the port city of Visakhapatnam and to numerous hamlets of local fishermen on the Andhra coast. Dolphin’s Nose is dolphin shaped  naturally formed rock in the sea facilitating berthing for ships)
