Oormila Vijayakrishnan Prahlad

Red velvet afternoons

Amethyst rush

Black camellia rain

On the turn

Venturing over verglas

A sojourn through the Thar

Oormila Vijayakrishnan Prahlad is a Sydney artist, poet, and pianist, of Indian heritage. She holds a Masters in English and is a member of Sydney’s North Shore Poetry Project and Authora Australis. Her recent works have been published in numerous print and online literary journals and anthologies including Otoliths, Neologism, Dwell Time, and Poetica Review, and are forthcoming in Unlost Journal, River and South Review, Ethel Zine, Duende, and elsewhere.

She writes: "These pieces are part of a body of work that I put together during the time we were in lockdown in Australia. They were inspired by a magpie I feed regularly in my garden when I step out to catch some sun. All pieces were created using gouache, inks, acrylics, pens, paper bits, and cloth remnants with ethnic Indian prints, and are all 12”X 8”."
